RM549   Djurleite with chalcocite and chalcopyrite

Dzhezkazgan Mine, Dzhezkazgan, Karagandy, Karaganda Oblast', Kazakhstan

In this specimen we observe groups of brilliant galena crystals showing complex forms with parallel growths. Accompanied by some isolated groups of djurleite crystals, those are distinguished by having less brilliance, greyish tone and iridiscent reddish reflections. Prisms are presented as complex forms, rich in faces, with striations and twinned. Djurleite is an uncommon copper sulfide closely related to chalcocite. Published in LAPIS (2014).
