Calcite enclosing Chalcopyrite
Faraday Mine, Farady Township, Bancroft District, Hastings County
5.5 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
Ex Joe Stachura. From the one time find about 30 years ago, this is a killer example of this esthetic discovery. A glass clear calcite (optical grade) encloses a garden like array of bright Chalcopyrite in many forms. The impact and condition are great, some minor rough spots exist as seen on the photos but this is still far better than most. Rare to find on the market, these are treasured pieces unlike anything else!
