A sparkling metallic grey intergrown druse of crystalline Tennantite which mostly covers the display face of this old-time specimen.  Crystals of Tennantite have formed on a botryoidal metallic yellowish Chalcopyrite and minor white Quartz from the classic Tennantite location at Wheal Jewel, Crofthandy, Cornwall.  Crofthandy is a small village between St. Day and Carharrack in the parish of Gwennap, a little to the east of Redruth and Wheal Jewel, a copper mine, worked from 1815 until 1853.
