The Chalcopyrite is bright and metallic with a slightly reddish irridescent surface coloration. The Siderite are translucent brown and lenticular in habit. There are also small white Dolomite crystals in areas. Fifteen cm! This is a large, museum sized specimen, which was unusual for the find, that is amazingly free of any damage (most were smaller and had some damage). This association hasn't been found since.
