Covellite : CuS

Copyright © Kevin Ward & exceptionalminerals.com  - This image is copyrighted. Unauthorized reproduction prohibited.

Exceptionally fine iridescent blades of Covellite on matrix!
This is the best Colorado Covellite I have seen in all my years of searching!
Colorado Covellite is usually golden and massive but this specimen looks more
like the fine blades one would find on a very fine Butte specimen! The color is
dark blue with purple-red accents when exposed to light. An amazing miniature!
From the Little Annie Vein, Summitville, Rio Grande County, Colorado.
Measures 6.2 cm by 5.3 cm in size.
Ex. Kevin Ward Collection
Currently in the Rebecca Larkin Collection
