Item Description

A nice representative specimen from the Tri-State District (Missour, Oklahoma and Kansas) featuring sharp, metallic, dark bronze colored crystals of Chalcopyrite measuring up to 7 mm, sitting on beige colored, slightly curved rhombic crystals of Dolomite on host rock matrix. At one point, these specimens were some of the most plentiful pieces on the market, but now are much more difficult to find.
