This is a real interesting specimen and needs to have a closer look, analytically. I don't know what the green is, possibly Pyromorphite, but a strange association.  Likewise the black beads are unknown. The Arsenolamprite is the dull silvery grey with pretty good micro crystals. It originated from Ecole de Mines in Paris in 1978.
