Item Description

Very sharp, iridescent, chalcocite crystals form an excellent miniature specimen from the famous mid-1990s finds at the Flambeau Mine of Wisconsin. Most of the crystals on this cutie have beautiful magenta iridescence, with a bit of peacock-blue. The piece has a nice sculptural aspect to it. Highly representative material from this famous locale, which is now extinct. We just uncovered a small stash of this material. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON. Valued $300
