All of the dull steely grey embedded crystals is Suredaite, a very rare tin sulfide. Suredaite is found only at this locality and the mine is probably idle so no further specimens are likely. It is from Dr. Werner Paar's collection. Very rich specimen with a few open vugs showing some free-standing crystals.
