Chalcopyrite-Coated Chalcocite With Djurleite
Tongshan Mine, Daye, Huangshi County, Hubei Province, China
Cabinet, 15.0 x 9.5 x 9.0 cm
A rich and showy example with TONS of color from this 2013 find. The chalcopyrite crystals are coated with blebs of djurleite and all is overlaid by a micro thin layer of chalcopyrite (by analysis). A unique find! We have many small pieces, but few good, large, undamaged pieces came out. Joe Budd photos.
