An attractive minor specimen of Arsenopyrite.
It's part of the myth and mystery of the Moors that traces of arsenic that run through to the streams, adding to the quirky nature of all things that inhabit the area. Arsenopyrite is an iron, sulphur and arsenic creation, with the interesting quality that if heated or struck will give off a garlic-like smell!
