Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.7 x 1.8 cm
A SUPERB, AESTHETIC and pristine sulfide combination piece from the Hauron District of Peru. A cluster of highly lustrous, black sphalerite crystals sits in a valley surrounded by "mountains" of bright, brass-yellow, twinned chalcopyrite crystals. The twinned chalcopyrite faces have different reflectivity due to the reflection of light off of microscopic tetrahedrite crystals. CHOICE material from the Gene Meieran sulfide collection. 6.2 x 5.7 x 1.8 cm
