Chalcopyrite with Galena, Pyrite and Calcite
stock #16.1-684
Rodna, Rodna Mountains
Bistrita-Nasaud County, Romania
8.9 x 6.4 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $225
Worldwide mix summer

From an older European collection, these are well formed, fine Chalcopyrites with some complex Galena all dusted with Calcites. The original label lists this as from Rodna, but it is unlike any other example we have seen from the locale, and unlike any of the better known Romanian localities (Cavnic, Turt etc). As often happens with old collections we can not always fully trust the locality information, but if correct this is especially fine for the locality and a significant older Roumanian piece with character. Undamaged. The Chalcopyrites reach 2.6 CM and are textbook sharp.
