Miniature, 3.2 x 2.3 x 2.2 cm
Mammoth Mine, Mount Isa, Queensland, Australia
This textbook crystal is the most robust crystal BY FAR that I have seen from the find, with a sharp, fat wedge-shaped form, and complete terminations on all sides. In fact, it is even a floater! The bottom is microcrystallized, and so this is literally complete all around. This is a world-class chalcocite! Ifg it were fro mConnecticut or Tsumeb, it would cost 2-3 times as much, though. For habit, however, it is really quite unique...the robust form of the best Tsumeb chalcocite I have seen, but with luster of a Bristol chalcocite.
