Geo 730: Jan. 28, Day 393: Rock Rainbow

Another shot of what I believe is secondary mineralization caused by weathering of pyrite and reprecipitation of metallic minerals on a cleavage plane of Galice slate. The rainbow colors are quite pretty.

The iridescence reminds me a bit of the inside of an abalone shell.
