with Rhodochrosite and Quartz
Casapalca, Peru

A good small-cabinet specimen having abundant crystals of gray, metallic tetrahedrite with white aggregates of rhodochrosite and frosty white xtls of quartz. Much to see on this specimen- several ways to display it.

The tetrahedrite xtls are well-defined, although there is some minor erosion on some corners. Close inspection of these suggests most of the losses are actual incomplete or eroded areas, not damage from handling.

Size:  The side shown is approx. 2" x 1 1/4". Largest crystal is about 1/2" in maximum dimension.
Ship. wt.  1 lb.
