Tennantite

ID: CC12654
An excellent miniature of greyish-black to steely-grey Tennantite, as equant crystals forming a piled-up mound on a weathered granular Quartz matrix.  From Wheal Jewel in the village of St Day, Gwennap Parish, Cornwall, England, this copper mine operated from 1815 until 1853.  The well-developed Tennantite crystals with a metallic lustre form rich clusters amongst more massive, matt black Tennantite.  A lovely miniature and good example of the species from Cornwall.
