The display face is covered with dull, slightly iridescent tetrahedrite crystals, with the longest distinct crystal edge measuring 2.6 cm. Where broken along the edge of the display face, some of the tetrahedrite crystals reveal hollow interiors. The matrix is a mixture of sulfides, with sphalerite and pyrite being distinctly present. Overall condition is very good. Would probably benefit from having excess matrix removed, but this might require sawing.
