Item Description

Franckeite is a RARE sulfosalt. This is a SUPERB and VERY RICH, pristine specimen of two, intergrown, ball-like clusters of starburst-shaped clusters of splendent, elongated franckeite needles. This is undoubtably an older specimen from some small finds at the San Jose Mine of Bolivia where they found franckeite and potosiite some 60 years ago. Valued at $200 for the richness and aesthetics of the rare species.
