Prismatic Single Chalcocite Crystal

Prismatic Single Chalcocite Crystal from Leonard Mine, Butte, Montana


Robert Lavinsky


Traded from Willard "Perky" Perkins collection in 1991, and dating back probably to the 1950s or 1960s, this is a superb Chalcocite from the locale - where such robust crystals are very uncommon. Pristine save only one very teeny-tiny ding atop, and complete all around. This is a major thumbnail for the locale. From the Roland and Kathy Sherman thumbnail collection: they are competitive thumbnail exhibitors from Southern California, specializing in copper species. Joe Budd Photos.
