I would hunt any ground that has that much mineralization in it. Good luck

The blue staining looks like copper staining, probably chrsyocolla.  

I wonder what the black squares that appears you dislodged from the quartz.  I've seen black tourmaline needles in a similar quarts rock, but this tourmaline erodes along with the quarts.  This black square you have seems to be harder than the quartz and not eroding along with it.  Quartz is a pretty hard rock, so that square must be harder.

I think that cube is possibly limonite after pyrite. But honestly not sure. Either way found it to be pretty cool in it's own right.

Amen! Looks like it might be some pretty serious iron staining too.
