Multiphase quartz-sulphide breccia
Virtual Museum ID: 19-D28-08
matrix is white to orange chalcedonic quartz; fragments include: 1) angular grey chalcedony (wallrock to last brecciation) 2) angular to subround welded ash tuff, 3) well rounded fragments of semi-massive arsenopyrite-pyrite in fine grained silica; arsenopyrite more abundant than pyrite; arsenopyrite itself is rounded and fractured indicating a very early brecciation
