Description

Details

An exquisite specimen of calcite, chalcopyrite and rhodochrosite from Trepca mine in Stan Terg, Mitovica, Kosovo. This piece features calcite crystals which are both clear and black in colour atop a rhodochrosite and chalcopyrite base. It also has small inclusions of pyrite cubes, sphalerite and pyrrhotite blades leading to a incredible blend of metallic lustres. Nowhere is this more prevalent than on the large nodule on the surface of the piece which is a chalcopyrite/peacock ore globule with a dividing line of pyrrhotite blades running through it. The sample weighs roughly 794 grams and measures approximately 12 x 10 x 5 cm, it is supplied in a 5" x 3.5" white card tray with an information label. This display piece is a must have for any serious mineral collector due to its rarity and its magnificent show of colours and lustres.
