Collector’s Piece: Iridescent Chalcopyrite on Dogtooth Calcite from Daye Copper
Dimension: 8cm x 5.2cm x 2.8cm
Locality: Tonglushan Mine, Daye Co., Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei Province, China
Strikingly attractive, iridescent Chalcopyrite on Dogtooth Calcite from a limited 2014 find in the world-class Daye Copper Mine of China. Artful dusting of rainbow iridescent, sparkly Chalcopyrite crystals on the tips of the Dogtooth Calcites is a rare occurrence. The exceedingly lustrous Calcite displays two generations growth – the inner core Dogtooth Calcites first emerged from the matrix then gradually covered by another layer of transparent Calcite. These are truly something unique and breathtaking. Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand as pictured.
