Chalcopyrite, Quartz
Freiberg, Freiberg District, Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 6.5 x 4.8 cm
An old-time, showy and classic specimen of a field of lustrous, brassy chalcopyrite crystals aesthetically placed on the "slope" of a jagged quartz "mountain range." The translucent, multiply terminated quartz crystal is complete all-around and is amazingly pristine. This very fine old-timer is from the Harold Buckelew and Richard Hauck Collections.
