A good cluster of brassy Arsenopyrite in a metallic-silver color from the Yaogangxian Mine.  The Arsenopyrite crystals of this piece has a distinct prismatic crystal habit which are twinned and triangular in shape.  Some are striated too, so facinating!  Traces of champagne-gold blades of Muscovite can also be observed on the side and on the underside of the specimen.
