This specimen contains at least 10 orthorombic prismatic Enargite crystals on a quartzite base. The crystals are generally in very good condition, though several are slightly damaged and a few on one edge of the specimen are severely so. The largest of these measures 0.4 x 0.4 x 0.3" (1.1 x 1.0 x 0.8 cm), and like the others, has a dark gray-black coloration and a submetallic luster that is nearly adamantine. However,a few of these Enargite crystals are almost completely covered with a thin layer of what appears to be bornite. They have tinges of golden, red-violet, and green colors, and show more of a metallic luster. There is also a substantial amount of pyrite mixed in with the Enargite cluster. Some of these pyrite formations consist of extremely elongated pyritohedrons that are actually coating pyrite pseudomorphs after Enargite. It is a pretty specimen- the golden, metallic pyrite makes a good contrast to the dark color and lustrous shine of the Enargites.
