Arsenopyrite, Quartz
Dal'negorsk (Dalnegorsk; Tetyukhe; Tjetjuche; Tetjuche), Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.3 x 1.9 cm
Do not let the plentitude of Chinese arsenopyrites turn you off to the exceptionally rare quality of this RUSSIAN combo specimen; an exquisite cluster of bright crystals wrapped around a gemmy, terminated quartz crystal! I doubt many Russian mineral collectors have a more elegant arseno mini than this! This came from a Russian dealer at the Tucson show earlier this year. 4.1 x 2.3 x 1.9 cm
