Rich specimen featuring a dozen brass and reddish chalcopyrite crystals perfectly perched on top of saddle shape white dolomite. Excellent metallic luster for the chalcopyrite, which also displayes textbook habitus. Amazing color contrast and great photomicrographic potential, as it is best admired with minimum magnification (5-10x). A real jewel!

Self collected at the Clara mine dump during summer 2008.
