This specimen began as a thick coating of brassy, polycrystalline, botryoidal pyrite in a cavity. It was subsequently removed from the cavity, resulting in the distorted tortilla shell shape you see here. On the back we see minor white barite blades, plus some dull marcasite (or maybe a cast of pyrite after marcasite). An interesting piece, and free of damage.
