THIS is an interesting piece! The matrix is a wonderful mixture of coarse graphite and pyrrhotite with black diopside crystals embedded in it. The specimen comes from a graphite mine and the graphite is very coarse, up to several mm across of foliated black crystals. The diopside crystal is mostly embedded in deep-bronze coarsely crystallized pyrrhotite. The diopside crystal is a sharp primatic crystal with an intact very good termination. A unique piece!
