A large, quite fine Bornite from this famous locale. The large, complex crystal is 2.5 cm long, and both it and the smaller, more euhedral crystal have that copper-to-blue iridescence that you look for in a classic Bornite. A very good specimen by any standard, and with its isolation and iridescence I would say even a great specimen. Ex. Charlie Key.
