Raw Chalcopyrite Specimen
Single Sample, 1"
From the same family as fool's gold, Chalcopyrite is a yellow crystalline mineral consisting of a sulfide of copper and iron. It is the principal ore of copper formed in hydrothermal veins. Chalcopyrite's formation exhibits fracture and has a brassy luster which make it an excellent tool for studying economic geology, and is great for us in comparative identification exercises.
While each specimen will vary slightly in shape, size and color, it will measure approximately 1" in length. Each is individually packaged, labeled & barcoded for easy identification and storage.
Selected & Processed by a Geologist.
Each and every specimen is selected and hand processed by an actual geologist, ensuring that each sample exhibits defining features. Rocks and minerals are sourced from a variety of locations around the world and are processed by hand in Victor, NY.
