Paper label with rubber band says          "Polished specimen of Heart Mountain all-carbonate fault breccia (fb) injected into Wapiti Formation. Inasmuch as the fault breccia was formed concurrently with the Heart Mountain fault movement, the volcanic rock with which it is interlayered must be post faulting. Wavy to cuspate interlayering indicates that the volcanic rock was unconsolidated at the time the carbonate fault breccia was mixed with it."
