Tennantite

ID: CC1832

The Tennantite 'Rocket'! An amazing floater specimen of stacked Tennantite tetrahedral crystals, associated with a few lustrous milky white Dolomite crystals. The crystals have the typical matt lustre and slight surface corrosion - though the specimen is very solid and stable - and the terminations are sharp with the largest crystal being 36mm wide. Damage is limited to one edge which is not visible on the best display angles and a spot contact near the base of one side.
