This dramatic cluster features some of the most robust and 3-dimensional crystals of molybdenite I have yet seen, with sharp edges instead of the usual flimsy, fragile, bendable crystals you see from most locales. It is a classic, oldtime piece, but of a style that makes it stand out from the others (similar to the difference between the rare robust covellites and the typical flimsy ones, there, too) .
