Siderite, Bornite
Large Cabinet, 16.5 x 10.2 x 4.8 cm
Aggenys Mine, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
An amazing large specimen of beautiful Siderite blades and balls, associated with gorgeous tiny rosettes of Bornite and other sulfides. The Siderite has a rich brown color, and the blades reach about .8 cm, while the balls are on the order of millimeters. Good luster, too. On the other hand, the small radial crystals of the Bornite and sulfides reach perhaps .4 cm in size, but their luster and color is absolutely incredible.
