A SUPERB specimen of sharp chalcopyrites clustered beautifully on a matrix of quartz. The largest chalcopyrite is 2.5 cm across, and the scintillating luster is fantastic on the brass-yellow crystals. Sharp chalcopyrites on quartz, contrasting like this, iis actually very hard to come by. this is CHOICE material from the famous Alimon Mine at Huaron, Peru, from its heyday in the 1970s-1980s. Ex Jaime Bird Collection. Valued at $800-1000.
