CHALCOPYRITE AND QUARTZ

$34.00

For sale is a nice chalcopyrite and quartz from Peru. These rather pretty specimens came to the market between fifteen to twenty years ago, and nothing decent has arrived since, then. Today they are reasonably uncommon, at least here in Australia.  There is a small amount of galena present, and it looks as thou these were what the chalcopyrite grew on. The rear of the specimen has a liberal amount of small calcite crystals scattered about, as seen in the last pic. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.

Product Description

For sale is a nice chalcopyrite and quartz from Peru. These rather pretty specimens came to the market between fifteen to twenty years ago, and nothing decent has arrived since, then. Today they are reasonably uncommon, at least here in Australia.  There is a small amount of galena present, and it looks as thou these were what the chalcopyrite grew on.  The bright brassy chalcopyrite crystals are well formed and give a great framework for the quartz. The rear of the specimen has a liberal amount of small calcite crystals scattered about, as seen in the last pic. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
