This is a Jamesonite on pyrite and quartz that measures 3.5 x 2 x 2.75 inches. I'm pretty sure it is from Zacatecas, Mexico, but it came without a label. What would this piece be worth retail? I bought this at a mineral show and am wondering if I got a good deal.
Any help is appreciated.

Cute little specimen. Probably from Noche Bueno? Probably worth less than $100.
