Broad ropey swaths of thick dull light graphite-grey Bismuthinite acicular crystals radiate up and throughout a rich group of brassy-golden Chalcopyrite crystals on a matrix of mixed Quartz, Chalcopyrite and Pyrite.  From the famous Fowey Consols mine near to St. Austell in Cornwall, the chunky Bismuthinite crystals show deep striations parallel to their length and are developed to around 2 cm long.  A terrific group of Bismuthinite crystals displayed to great advantage amongst the attractive Chalcopyrite.
