Iridescent Chalcopyrite and Calcite

Iridescent Chalcopyrite and Calcite


Colorful plate of naturally iridescent chalcopyrite in and on, calcite.  The chalcopyrite has a nice glittery luster with a wide range of colors from the naturally oxidized surface.  The Calcite crystals are also highly lustrous and flashy, with a rich chocolate color floating just below the surface.  This piece is quite unique, rare, and of very high quality from the locality, which does produce a wide variety of calcite combinations.  


From Daye Co., Huangshi, Hubei, China


The specimen is shown on the Large Adjustable Mineral Stand, which is available in our online shop and not included with purchase.
