ID: CC12471
Intergrown, brassy-golden Chalcopyrite crystals of up to 2 cm entirely cover the display face and sides of a large miniature/small cabinet specimen from Banská Štiavnica (Schemnitz) in the Banská Bystrica Region of Slovakia.  Many of the crystals have distinct chevroned surface growth patterns, some producing a play of iridescent metallic peacock colours.  The matrix, which can only be seen from beneath, is a mixture of granular Quartz, Galena and crystallised Pyrite. A good example of crystallised Chalcopyrite from Banská Štiavnica.
