Can you please tell me what kind of rock/ crystal this is?

It was found on a hike in Norway about 50 years ago. 

Thank you!

That's a very interesting mineral! Can you please provide any additional information such as its origin, streak, etc? It looks like it may be some sort of copper mineral, and the bottom picture looks like it may be possibly chalcocite. If you can provide some more info we'll see if we can help a bit more.
