Small Cabinet,
Chalcopyrite configurations such as this (often called blister copper) could initially be mistaken for old, classic finds from Cornwall, with similar bright luster and bubbling formation, but they're actually "COVID-era" finds from China. Of the pieces we purchased in a small lot in 2020, this has the largest botryoids, with color variations and significant calcite crystals on the right side of the piece, dotted by several other small chalcopyrite balls.
