Probably muscovite. It would help if you would clean it up.

Muscovite or lepidolite is also my opinion!

Considering the original request:

Is this dolomite-pyrite-siderite?

I would prefer just 'Mica Group' because, although it is true that it could be Muscovite, considering the photos, lepidolite seems to be another good possibility.
