The Sartorite is the silvery black material with the metallic luster. This specimen has quite a large amount of this rare sulfide present both as two extant crystals and a large piece with conchoidal fracture surfaces. Also present is brown colored Sphalerite and small crystals of Pyrite. There are additional layers of Sartorite and other sulfides running through the sugary, white colored Quartz.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: Most of the surfaces of Sartorite and Sphalerite are cleavage surfaces.
