FRIEDRICHITE with CHALCOPYRITE
price: £290 / $450 / €343 - This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate
Friedrichite is a rare Lead, Copper, Bismuth Sulfosalt only known from a very few locations. The specimen we have is from the Julcani District, Peru. Friedrichite forms as scattered bundles of acicular crystals to 0.5cm long with an iridescence from pinkish to green and blue. Crystals of Chalcopyrite to 1.2cm have a prominent position on the specimen, also with a reddish to yellow iridescence. Bluish grey crystals to 0.3cm of Tennantite-Tetrahedrite form the base on which the other two minerals have grown. A thin veinlet of Pyrite and Quartz is the matrix on which all the minerals have been deposited. A very fine example of rare Friedrichite on a polymetallic specimen.
