Countless intergrown Tennantite crystals make up the bulk of this small hand specimen, and actually create sort of a "base rock". The crystals are generally in good condition, as there are several areas that have noticeable damage. If complete and integral, the largest crystals would measure 0.3 - 0.4" (0.8 - 1.0 cm) and would have reasonably a reasonably good tetrahedral form. All have a dark gray coloration and a moderately dull metallic luster. A crust of tiny quartz crystals covers a portion of the Tennantite base- the crystals do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in length and have good form. The base also contains several chalcopyrite crystals that are integrown into 3 or 4 groups. They show considerable damagae, but have excellent tetragonal form where they are intact. Their deep golden coloration and moderate to dull metallic luster is standard.
