This specimen was mined in 2001, and it is quite remarkable in person. The luster is far more impressive than the photos reveal because the sphalerite, chalcopyrite and quartz all have a mirror shine to them. The large chalcopyrite crystals have a yellow-orange-magenta iridescence that really grabs your attention.   In the close-ups there also appears to be some golden pyrite.  Excellent condition.

This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
