Item Description

A rarely seen Millerite specimen from this somewhat obscure locality in Italy. The piece features a few acicular metallic golden "needles" of Millerite with minor Calcite and Dolomite on matrix. One of the very few specimens of this material that I have seen. From the Richard A. Kosnar collection, who was very fond of European minerals.
