This specimen might be described as an ugly brute (!), but a rather beautiful ugly brute!!!  Mottled lime green, mustard-yellow and rusty-brown pseudomorphed crystals of Bindheimite after Bournonite, occur as large, rather chunky, blocky crystals to 3 cm long and some to 2.5 cm wide, and all very clearly displaying deep furrows around the prism faces forming a new generation of “cog-wheel ore”.  This specimen is from the Felixbau mine at Hüttenberg in Carinthia, Austria.  Bindheimite is a lead-antimony oxide and the more this specimen is examined the more fascinating and amazing it becomes!
