What is this black mineral? Seems to have formed at same time as the quartz. Streak is light gray. With some difficulty I can scrape it with my fingernail, produces light gray powder. Has a powdery feel. A pearly shimmer. Bubble pockets. Found in central NC, about 10 miles from a pyrophllite quary.
