A pair of soft yellow-golden crystals of Chalcopyrite – possibly coating Sphalerite(?) – sitting on a thin “plate” of highly lustrous, razor sharp, metallic, golden cubic Pyrite crystals. The piece is in great shape overall, despite one of the Chalcopyrite crystals being contacted on the back (not visible from the display side). Good crystallized Chalcopyrites from the Eagle Mine are almost impossible to find these days, especially on Pyrite like this piece. A splendid association specimen, from a mine that produced some of Colorado’s best sulfide display specimens outside of the San Juan Mountains. The Eagle Mine was the center of lead and zinc mining in Colorado for a time, and produced some of the state’s most memorable mineral specimens, along with the neighboring Groundhog Mine that produced the finest Wire Gold specimens in the world extant!
Locality: Eagle Mine, Gilman, Eagle County, Colorado
Specimen Size: 4.5 x 4.2 x 1.3 cm (miniature)
