  • $60.00
  • Vermilion Mine
  • Denison Township
    Ontario, Canada
  • There are several patches of arsenohauchecornite on this specimen, embedded in other sulphide minerals. The arsenohauchecornite is actually in crystals but they are so intergrown with other minerals and broken, it is difficult to recognize them. Rich specimen of a rare mineral!

  • Okay! Full disclosure! This is NOT a perfect specimen. There is a fair bit of bruising on some of the crystals but there are also lots of great crystals of the sulphides and quartz on this specimen. Some bits of rhodochrosite but no whole crystals. Nice locality piece with a reasonable price!

  • This matrix is composed of aggregates of sphalerite with a sooty coating. On the top are several well formed "cogwheel" shaped twins of bournonite, the biggest one sort of star-shaped. The crystals are all sharp with prominent re-entrant angles that cause the cogwheel comparison. A couple of little nicks here and there. Displays very well!
