A real showstopper! A large and completely freestanding, undamaged broad fan-like spray of acicular, bright, lustrous crystals of Berthierite on a Covellite-rich matrix. The Berthierite varies between metallic black and a subtle brass-gold, forming an intermixed lustrous play of colours due to the very fine, almost hair-like acicular crystals.  The Covellite occurs as cobalt to peacock-blue patches around the base. The Berthierite spray itself measures 8.4 cm by 6.0 cm. A very fine specimen of Berthierite from the Herja Mine in Romania.
