Pyrrhotite replaced by Pyrite and or Chalcopyrite (Ref: 6.2-566)

Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref., Hunan Province, China
55mm x 42mm x 33mm
minID: N62-LRA
$120
An oddity from the great Yaogangxian Mine, sharp rosettes of Pyrrhotite (rare at this locale) that are coated by secondary Sulphides and associated with Chalcopyrite and Pyrite. The Pyrrhotite has been partly or entirely replaced by what is likely pyrite but could also be Chalcopyrite. Both species are on the specimen's matrix. Delicate and well-formed this was part of a small find we obtained at the mine in 2003. I have not seen these since then. Uncommon and a nice example for any good Yaogangxian suite.
