Item Description

Exceptional specimen of Enargite altering to Luzonite. The black blades of Enargite, which can reach 1.1 cm in length, have excellent luster, and the striations on the faces add greatly to the aesthetics. The Luzonite is growing on the terminations of many of the crystals of Enargite. For the coup d'grace, the Enargites surround a bed of beautiful lustrous Pyrites. A rare specimen for this quality.
