A matrix of splendent, intergrown, battleship gray galena crystals to 1 cm across, along with a druse of colorless quartz crystals, is the host to tabular crystals of pyrrhotite that have been pseudomorphed to sparkling, brassy yellow pyrite. The original form of the pyrrhotite is preserved nicely! The piece overall is sparkling and bright
