RM1377   Arsenopyrite with chalcopyrite

Julcani, Angaraes, Huancavelica, Peru

These specimens of Peruvian arsenopyrite stand out for their excellent luster and perfection of its crystals. With the camera I am not able to capture its real beauty. On a sulfide matrix we can enjoy hundreds of arsenopyrite crystals, prismatic, with defined terminal faces, rather than well-defined. They're accompanied by chalcopyrite crystals with dull luster, but gold tone, also well-defined and twinned. Brilliance and quality. A novelty of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 2016.

Size: 7.8 x 5.0 x 3.5 cm.
Main crystal: 5 x 2 mm.
Found in 2016.
