Do you know where it comes from?

It is from some ore mine, I would say.

The minerals could be:

silver-black - galena

black - sphalerite

golden - pyrite or chalcopyrite

white - calcite

pink - Mn-calcite or rhodochrosite?

Hi. It was just in a bag of "rocks" bought by my daughter so unaware of it's origins. Thanks for your reply.
