Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this one in the flat. Short prismatic crystals to 8mm. There are numerous smaller from minute 1mm to the longest at about 8mm. Some deep internal red reflections can be seen. Backside contains some nice Pyrargyrite. Some possible Dyscrasite. Some Pyrite. EDS confirmed.
