Pyrrhotite with Chalcopyrite coating (Ref: 21.1-344)

Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref., Hunan Province, China
52mm x 48mm x 33mm
minID: AFT-08Y
$480
An uncommon and attractive Yaogangxian specimen. Lustrous iridescent Chalcopyrite covers most of a stack of flat hexagonal crystals of Pyrrhotite. Only on a few edges are the original golden metallic Pyrrhotite crystals visible. In excellent condition, what may look like bruising on some edges is actually perfect and sharp. The multicolor patina on the Chalcopyrite is bright and sparkling which is both esthetic and very different for this famed locality. Individual Pyrrhotite hexagons are up to 5 CM across yet are unusually thin at just 2-3 mm on average. A choice Chinese Sulfide!
