Description

Chalcopyrite has hardly been found as visible crystals in the Lavrion mining district but the Jean-Baptiste Mine and a few others had produced a number of specimens with crystals. These are almost always overgrown by secondary copper minerals like ktenasite, gordaite or like here malachite. The malachite occurs as darkgreen sprays, fuzzy balls and crusts. Not all chalcopyrite on this piece are overgrown, deeper below are some without, eventhough tarnished. The matrix contains quartz crystals and web-like pyrite or melnikovite.
