Item Description

Butte is famous for producing some of the finest enargite crystals on the planet. This showy, rich and excellent combination piece features a multitude of highly lustrous, very sharp, striated, jet-black, enargite crystals with a light iridescent patina nested among mirror-bright, brass-yellow, pyrite octahedrons.. You dont see nearly as many butte Enargites on the market anymore, and they will always hold their own on a worldwide scale. A fine, older, combination reference specimen of this classic material. Ex Smithsonian and Robert Whitmore Butte Collections.
