OK, this is an aesthetically challenged specimen but it is such an unusual piece for Tsumeb, I thought I'd include it. It is composed of two composit pyrite crystals intergrown with black sulphide-y minerals. I think the black minerals interrupted the pyrite growth. It looks way better in person. Interesting and unusual!
