ID: CC19945
A wonderfully micro-crystallised mass of dark gunmetal-grey Chalcocite from the Dzhezkazgan Mining District in Kazakhstan.  Broad and blocky Chalcocite crystals are intergrown to form this elongated large miniature, the surfaces of which sparkle due to the sub-mm metallic lustre of their crystalline growth patterns.  A very fine specimen of the copper sulphide Chalcocite from Kazakhstan.
