Rosette Dolomite with Galena and Chalcopyrite Specimen from Dongxiang Co., China
Dimension: 6.8cm x 5cm x 3.1cm
Locality: Dongxiang Co., Fuzhou Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
Exquisite Dolomite nodules with rosette-like and radial arrangement perched onto Quartz matrix with iridescent Chalcopyrite and Galena intergrown. From the world renowned Dongxiang Co. of China, this came out from a November 2020's small deposit and I've been lucky enough to have acquired a small lot of these gorgeous pieces. Like other minerals with a cubic crystal structure, Galena of this piece shows an interesting and distinct tetrahedral crystal habit. Metallic brassy gold Chalcopyrite crystals with rainbow iridescence embedded in the Quartz matrix add real pizzazz to the piece, fantastic! A high quality display stand made of pure copper and acrylic is included in the price.
