Mückeite with Millerite and Polydymite

ID: CC14661
Mückeite is a rare copper-nickel sulphosalt (CuNiS3) first described in 1989 and occurs in this small miniature with excellent Millerite crystals and steel-grey Polydymite.  From its type locality at Grüneau Mine at Schutzbach in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, the Mückeite forms metallic-grey platy crystals, sometimes with a dull gold to rose-gold tint.  Stubby, thick acicular needles of lustrous golden Millerite and matt grey Polydymite richly surround the Mückeite over a milky-white Quartz matrix.
