SOLD Bornite with Calcite
Dzhezkazgan Mine, Dzhezkazgan
Zhezgazghan Oblysy, Kazakhstan
6.8 x 4.2 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Spring 2019

Well formed Bornite crystals are surprisingly rare world wide, so the find in Kazakhstan some years ago was very significant. This piece has several distinct crystals with rounded faces as is typical and a nice patina. Contrasts well with the matrix and the crystals are very three dimensional. No damage. Bornite is an important Copper ore but crystals of any size or definition are rare.
