The top of this enargite, quartz and pyrite matrix is covered with sharp enargite crystals and clusters of smaller pyrite crystals. There is another grey sulphide-type mineral, possibly bornite of tetrahedrite present in rounded crystals but I do not know what it is. Nice specimen of this unusual copper mineral!
