A neat bright metallic grey specimen of Chalcocite from the old St. Ives Consols Mine, Cornwall. The specimen displays a number of inter-grown Chalcocite crystals measuring to 1.4cm.

The mine also produced geological curiosities in the form of Carbonas crystal lined ore extensions out from the main lodes often lined with crystals.
