Hi all, anyone have any idea what the blue stuff is in this quartz vein?

Pic doesn't show it very well but its a deep blue to black color mixed in and around the pyrite.

Can you put up a better picture of it that might show the colour better ?

Looks like gold and pyrite in that 2nd photo thumbsup. Can't help with the black, I'd crush it.

G'Day

Hard tell from the photo but if its a bit iridescent I would hazard guess at bornite. If its a shiny but not iridescent it could also be azurite but as it is with pyrite I would go for the first choice.
