An excellent combo specimen from Missouri with highly colorful, rainbow iridescent chalcopyrite on matrix along with etched, white calcite crystals. The chalcopyrite crystals are as colorful as they appear in these photos, and the saturation has not been touched. It really has this much color! The calcite crystals are extremely etched, and even though they seem to have their complete, terminated form, the insides are almost hollowed out from the etching.  

Has original tags from 1998. The tag says the chalcopyrite was originally rust-colored but when it was cleaned the color changed to blue.  This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
