Arsenopyrite, Chalcopyrite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
Miniature, 3.5 x 2.0 x 1.5 cm
Do not let the good supply of arsenopyrites from the Yaogangxian make you jaded: you just do NOT see elegant, refined specimens like this that deserve a place in a fine collection. This specimen features two stacked crystals that are incredibly sculptural! And, a coating of golden chalcopyrite makes them that much more special. Superb mini for a discriminating collector. 3.5 x 2 x 1.5 cm
