Friedrich-Wilhelm Mine, Herdorf, Siegerland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
Miniature, 5.1 x 3.7 x 2.6 cm
A sharp, BRILLIANTLY COLORFUL chalcopyrite specimen from this classic locale. It has a natural luster that is so metallic and so bright, it looks chemically induced (but is not!). This specimen features pagoda-like clusters of crystals to 1 cm, in aggregation on massive matrix. It has some damage to the bottom portion, but the upright towers of crystals are the focus. For the locality, a stunning specimen
