Item Description

Valleriite is an UNCOMMON sulfosalt and this is the first time we have offered this rarity at auction. A centrally located pod of bronze-colored valleriite microcrystals on matrix is very nicely accented by iridescent purple and blue bornite from the War Eagle Mine, Yukon Territory, Canada. The backside is richer in bornite, but still has some valleriite. Older, seldom available from the Dick Jones Collection.
