Djurleite is a copper sulphide, forming thick tabular crystals with deeply striated prism faces, similar to chalcocite.  This large thumbnail from the Dzhezkazgan Mining District in the Karaganda Region of Kazakhstan is a rich and well crystallised example.  The Djurleite forms an intergrown array of blackish-blue crystals to over 1 cm tall, with atypical dark steel-blue iridescence.  In one small area, micro-crystals of Quartz form a granular cluster.  A rich and fine example of Djurleite from Kazakhstan.
