A well-crystallized, sparkling specimen of Tennantite from the Cornish location of Wheal Jewel, St. Day in the parish of Gwennap. Micro-crystals of Tennantite are intergrown amongst tabular Chalcocite crystals on a Quartz and Chlorite matrix. Much of the surface has a thin coating of iridescent, purple to maroon Bornite. Wheal Jewel operated between 1815 and 1853 producing copper and is actually situated by the hamlet of Crofthandy just south east of the present day village of St. Day.
