Mineral Specimen #6238    Enargite, Pyrite

Mina Quiruvilca (Mina La Libertad Mine), Quiruvilca Dist., Santiago de Chuco Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru

9 x 6 x 3.6 cm


Ex. E. Morales, purchased from Kristalldruse, Munich Show, 1981

A mass of well formed Enargite crystals sprinkled with small, golden Pyrite crystals. The Enargite crystals are a very dark gray, almost black color and have a submetallic luster. The terminations are flat and in some places, there are no terminations but rather, flattened contact planes which are almost indistinguishable from the terminated crystals. This is a classic location for Enargite specimens.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
