Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 3.1 x 3.0 cm
San Jose Mine, Oruro City, Cercado Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia
Wurtzite is one of those rather simple sulfides that few people see in well crystallized specimens. The San Jose mine (and various other mines in Bolivia) have produced some of the largest Wurtzite specimens extant. This specimen consists of several sharp, lustrous dark reddish-brown crystals on matrix. The important aspect of this specimen is that these are actual crystals and not small massive "blebs." 5.2 x 3.1 x 3.0cm
