Chalcocite

ID: CC631

Several well formed Chalcocite crystals measuring up to 1cm possessing a fine metallic lustre nestling amongst microcrystals of drusy Quartz on an iron rich matrix. The largest Chalcocite forms an interesting 'cross' shaped twinned crystal. A Richard Barstow green label accompanies this classic Penwith example.
