Bulgarian Sulphides

I am fortunate to have obtained a very high quality group of sulphides fromthe Madan mining area. All are nice with well formed crystals of chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite associated, mostly with quartz. Very good looking cabinet specimens.

All prices in Canadian dollars. For payment in US$, deduct 18% or multiply by 0.82.

  • Here is a verynice cluster of sharp, cool-looking galena crystals on a mound of quartz crystals wit ha couple of black sphalerite crystals. The galena crystals are the feature with sort of tabular and stepped crystals. Looks great!

  • A large cluster of predominately large galena crystals associated with quartz and sphalerite crystals. The galena crystals are various combinations of cube and octahedron with a lead-gray, matte finish. Looks great! r

  • Droujba Mine

  • Bulgaria
  • A very handsome specimen showing a large scalenohedal crystal, accompanies by a number of smaller crystals on sparkling quartz crystals. The calcite may, in fact be a hollow "pseudo" or epimorph of calcite after calcite but there is no sign of it. A couple of the smaller crystal appear to be hollow at the edge of the matrix. It sure displays well! R
Marcasite, ps pyrrhotite, SphaleriteBulgarian Sulphides
  • Item #26491
  • Marcasite, ps pyrrhotite, Sphalerite
  • 10.3x8.0x4.1 cm
  • Largest Crystal Size: 40mm

  • Trepca
  • Kosovska, Mitrovika
  • A very handsome specimen showing two hexagonal-looking aggregates of oriented marcasite crystals. I interpret them as pseudos after pyrrhotite but could just be some sort of aggregate of marcasite crystals! Associated with nice crystals of sphalerite and galena. Very good specimen from a classic European locality!
