- This is an interesting one! The specimen is composed of massive pyrite covered with pyrite crystals ranging from tiny to 6mm or so in size. The thing is, the pyrite is a strange colour -silvery! That is because it has a very thin veneer of silvery-grey siegenite. As well, there are lots of calcite and a single, sharp chalcopyrite crystal on the front of the specimen.
