Sphalerite and chalcopyrite, Peru; 4" tall

This fine combination specimen is from the Huaron Mine in Peru and was probably extracted during the 1980's. The author visited Lima, Peru in 1998 to buy fine mineral specimens. The visit to Lima was one of the least successful international buying trips pursued by the author. This was mostly a function of the availability of high quality pieces being well down as a result of extensive seasonal flooding of Peruvian mines that produced the types of mineral specimens that were offered for sale near to Lima town square in the center of Lima.
