The extremely rare mineral Paraguanajuatite is a bismuth selenide and I don’t ever recall handling one before.  Based on its accompanying labels this is an old-time specimen from the Falun mine, just south of the town of Falun in Dalarna, Sweden.  The town has since expanded and now half surrounds the old quarry.  The mine worked a copper and gold deposit and began operations as far back as the 11th century!  The Paraguanajuatite occurs is a matrix of ore bearing minerals amongst a complex mix of anhedral (no crystal faces) Chalcopyrite and silver and grey metallic ores.  Being honest, I cannot identify the Paraguanajuatite amongst this mixture and must leave this task to its next owner to carefully study and identify.
