Here is an interesting one! It is primarily a native bismith specimen where native bismuth has formed in a quartz crystal-lined veinlet. Some of the bismuth has been removed, though and reveals loads of tiny white-orangey microcrystals of a mineral, presumably a bismuth oxide of some sort. Has not been analysed. Beautiful!
