Description:Kiddcreekite is an extremely rare copper tin tungsten sulfide only found in about 9 localities on earth! This piece is from Bisbee, which is one of the co-type localities for the species (more specifically the Campbell Shaft) along with the namesake locality, the Kidd Creek Mine in Ontario, Canada. The material is virtually impossible to find on the market, and it's always seen in micro examples. Honestly, I've seen more polished section photos of Kiddcreekite than actual specimen photos, that's how rare it is. With that said, all of the Bisbee material I've ever seen features tiny grey, metallic Kiddcreekite sitting on golden Pyrite, and this piece is no exception. It's a very good example of a mineral that every micro collector, rarities collector or even sulfide collector would want in their collections. We have photographed the piece with a Canon MP-E 65 mm macro lens to better illustrate the quality. This is the ONLY specimen of this material that we have to offer and if you have been searching for a piece of this incredibly elusive material, don't miss out on this one!
