\r\n
A richly adorned crystal specimen of
\r\n
Chalcocite, from one of Cornwall
\r\n
mineralogically and historically celebrated
\r\n
mines. Situated on the extreme south
\r\n
western rugged cliffs at Pendeen.
\r\n
The Specimen displays a number of
\r\n
lenticular pseudohexagonal crystals
\r\n
measuring to 0.6cm, two or three prismatic
\r\n
Chalcocite crystals. These are further
\r\n
enhanced by a later deposition of a druse
\r\n
of Chalcocite crystals. The Chalcocite
\r\n
specimen shows a deep sparkling metallic
\r\n
blue with hints of purple-red. The matrix is
\r\n
also Chalcocite which has mostly replaced
\r\n
Chalcopyrite, with some quartz areas. A
\r\n
pleasing specimen from the mine
