Description: In a dark grey mixture with fine grained Arsenopyrite close to gold and quartz inside a limonite nugget. The specimen was prepped by quenching after heating with a blow torch. Burning arsenopyrite could produce scorodite, however the sample analysed came from an unburnt bit. (Phil Belley XRD)
