This specimen is totally loaded with silvery bladed crystals to 2mm of the rare Lead-Silver-Copper-Bismuth sulfosalts Berryite and Aikinite embedded in Quartz matrix. 

There is a label from the collection of Ara T. Dildilian with the number 4338, which matches the tag on the back of the specimen. The label has a plethora of good info, however I could not find any good information about the Dildilian collection.
