ID: CC8922
Carrollite, a copper-cobalt-nickel sulphide, occurs at many locations worldwide, but this specimen, from Kambove in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo produces probably the best specimens. This ex-matrix, silvery-bronze crystal is massive for the species and is beautifully terminated, with most faces displaying parallel striated surfaces, two of which form a perfect chevroned pattern.  The metallic faces are lustrous and highly reflective, appearing almost pure silver in colour.  The base of the specimen, where the crystal has been broken-off from its point of attachment, is granular and of a mixed copper-bronze-silver appearance with metallic iridescent patches.  An exceptionally fine example of Carrollite.
