Covellite, Chalcopyrite
Bisbee, Arizona, USA
Large Cabinet, 16.6 x 13.0 x 3.0 cm
Ex. Harold Urish
This colorful ore sample highlights the bronze chalcopyrite vein along with the iridescent purplish-blue of Covellite. I have never seen more than a speck of covellite from Bisbee before and although massive, this is pound sof it, and very pretty overall. A significant ore sample from a rare portion of the deposit, now long since mined out.
