Ex. Richard Hauck
An EXCELLENT, old-time Butte specimen of lustrous, mirror-finish, brass-yellow, partially iridescent pyritohedrons to 1.2 cm with lustrous, iridescent purple, enargite crystals to 0.7 cm. The snow-white cluster of selenite blades really adds character to this piece, which is glued to a cut piece of gold-painted plywood. The scattered damage to this classic Butte combination piece is certainly not detracting. Ex Richard Hauck Collection. 7.1 x 5.2 x 4.0 cm
