Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 2.5 x 1.7 cm
Sweet Home Mine (Home Sweet Home Mine), Mount Bross, Alma District, Park Co., Colorado, USA
Even though the Sweet Home mine is most famous for its Rhodochrosite specimens, the most significant sulfide in the mine is Tetrahedrite. This specimen hosts several nice Tetrahedrite crystals measuring up to 1.0 cm with good luster, sharpness and a slight amount of iridescent greenish-blue Bornite coating a few of the Tetrahedrite faces. The piece looks like an older specimen (prior to Collector's Edge mining operations), and could have been collected by Richard Kosnar in the late 1970s. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection.
