A brassy, sharply-crystallized arsenopyrite core is decorated with 'snakes' of white to colorless, slightly frosted calcite crystals. The arsenopyrite crystal faces feature an aesthetic, stepped growth pattern. The overall shape is roughly hemispherical. Minor damage to one small patch of calcite but otherwise in fine condition.
