What is the main rock? Limestone? (sorry, bad at geology)
Silver stuff = antimony?
What is the yellow stuff?
How much could it be worth?

Geo, it looks a whole lot like quartz. Try scratching it: Limestone scratches easy

If it flakes easily it's probably mica

Quatz often stains yellow and brown

@dalehileman,
Quartz eh? Thanks, pretty sure the silver stuff is antimony though.
