Chalcopyrite, Sphalerite, Galena
Huaron Mine, San Jose de Huayllay District, Pasco Dept, Peru
Miniature, 4.3 x 3.2 x 1.8 cm
A beautifully balanced combo specimen from Peru, combining sharp, brassy chalcopyrite with stacked cubes of silvery galena and dark, lustrous sphalerite. You can see a galena cube buried right in the middle of the chalco! Stark contrast of form and color makes this a chice miniature standing out amidst the crowd from these mines.
