Millerite, Pyrite (Var: Arsenian Pyrite)
Meikle Mine, Bootstrap District, Elko Co., Nevada, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 5.3 x 4.0 cm
Radiating clusters of splendent, brassy millerite needles encircle a melted-look nodule of arsenian pyrite on this superb and unusual specimen from the famous Meikle Mine of Nevada. The millerite clusters look like a wreath or tiara on the pyrite. The exact mine location is the 41-20 Heading of the Griffin Ore Body.
