A classic British specimen from the famous Herodsfoot Mine, Cornwall. Brassy iridescent yellow metallic Chalcopyrite with a slight iridescence's coat crystals of well developed Tetrahedrite. Excellent Tetrahedrite measuring to 1.3cm form a super stack of crystals neatly finished by a perfect crystal at the apex of the specimen. Areas of inter grown cubo-octahedral deep steel grey Galena are in association. A later partial druse of pyramidal translucent Quartz accompanies the first two minerals. A rare and sort after old time specimen of  Tetrahedrite, original from the J. Behier-(1903-1965) Collection, renowned for his work on Madagascar minerals.
