Description

A brassy metallic specimen from Zinkguvan with cubanite that occurs as a lamellae in the chalcopyrite.  The Zinkgruvan deposit has been known since the 16th century.  But, it was not until 1857 that large scale production began.  Uncommon material.  Nicer when viewed in person!  My only piece.

Actual shipping cost will be calculated and added to the invoice.
