This hand specimen is entirely skutterudite. It's intergrown jumble of crystals has one surface with excellent terminations and a bright, silvery color. The crystals have a variety of shapes, basically modified versios of several standard forms, and several of the crystals have garnet-like shapes, and some crystals appear to have 4 sided pyrimidal terminations. This is a good, typical specimen of skutterudite.
