    A is my pick. Kind a reverse reason. Chalcopyrite (copper/iron sulfied) is brassy yellow but many times has green somewhere. A for me. TTC

    I was thinking the same thing, Terry, but that lack of blue/green bothers me. I'm leaning more towards pyrite.

    Is the same golden colored material coating the underside of specimen? The color look the same when rotated? Lacking this info, you are just asking us
    to guess. Then you will give us hints about formulas for specific gravity tests. MOM! - he's not playing fair! MOM? I guess with TerryC A-Chalcopyrite It was fun anyway.

    Its one of the pyrites. I say that because of the way it is fractured.

    I go with A as well because it's not gold. A specimen even gold that sized would be 180 grams+ not 84.
