Description

This old classic specimen hosts the best-formed crystals of bournonite that I have ever seen from Greece. Most of them have perfect form and luster. They are sitting on a contrasting matrix which is composed of pale rhodochrosite and possibly another carbonate and are associated with small crystals of pyrite and quartz.
