Emplaced in a vug in massive arsenopyrite are sharply crystallized, highly lustrous, metallic, silvery gray, crystals of arsenopyrite to 7 mm in length. Scattered about are lustrous, brassy yellow crystals of chalcopyrite, to 7 mm in length. Ex. Nick Carruth collection along with his label. Obtained from G. Ball in 1989 and owned by Nick ever since. He sold his Cornish collection in entirety to Simon Lawrence, and while Nick believed that Devon minerals should count in a Cornish collection (by way of geology), the current owner believes he has to stop collecting at the Devonshire border and so let the Devon suite go out for resale. A location rarity.
