Collector’s Piece: Iridescent Chalcopyrite on Quartz from Dongxiang Co., China
Dimension: 5.7cm x 4.1cm x 3.2cm
Locality: Dongxiang Co., Fuzhou Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
An absolute beauty! This is a rare type of Chalcopyrite and Quartz piece mined from the Dongxiang Co. in China in January 2021 and this is the only one piece that my miner’s friend had to offer. We already know the blue iridescent Chalcopyrite from the famous Daye Copper Mine but it is very uncommon for the Dongxiang locality to have the same striking blue-colored iridescence! These colorful, modified octahedral conglomerations are dramatic and artistic. The mesmerizing iridescent blue and purple hues in this fine quality piece is some of the most noted mineral discoveries found in this world-class locale. The superb contrast and shape with the Quartz make this a superb specimen from anywhere not only because of the mineral combinations but the gorgeous colors. It is even more pretty in person than photos! Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
