Description

This is a "modern classic" from Dzhezkazgan, Karaganda, Kazakhstan: A lawn of countless parallel-grown crystals of chalcocite on-grown on minute white quartz crystals. The luster is very good, but hard to get a meaningful picture. The ones which give the best impression are pics 3 & 6. The specimen is much better in person!

Comes with a modern Krantz label.
