Breithauptite, Nickeline, Acanthite

Item number: 24563

A solid fragment of the two unusual nickel minerals breithauptite and nickeline. The breithauptite is obvious because of its pink-metallic colouration while the nickeline has a more orange-metallic colour. On one end of the piece, there is a calcite veinlet that has crystals of black acanthite ps argentite embedded in it. Sawn on two sides. Rich! s
