Where was this found? Some quartz for sure, but the black mineral is a bit harder to tell. Is it magnetic? Anyway, probably about $40-60  because of the well formed crystals.

@linkisnotzelda, I think the specimen is worth a lot less. unless there is rarer material in there that has not been identified. The crystal don't look that well-formed to me. Also @sha256 didn't post any dimensions or locality information, which are both very important cost-value factors.
