Daye Co., Huangshi, Hubei, China
Miniature, 5.2 x 5.2 x 5.0 cm

These rare chalcopyrites really have a lot of variety. The 3.5cm incredibly sparkly main ball is perfectly accented by the 1cm magenta, and blue spheres. While there are a couple of contacts here and there, the set up of this piece overshadows them. My favorite feature on this specimen is the three ascending perfectly-graded spheres marching up the front of this exemplar Chalcopyrite from this new find!
