985-NJQWurtzite : ZnS

San José Mine, Oruro City, Cercado Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia

Field of View: 6 mm

Black is wurtzite on a matrix of augelite and quartz; the red translucent mineral is a ZnS species which I believe is also wurtzite. The rods of that mineral nucleated on boulangerite fibers.

985-NJQWurtzite : ZnS, Augelite : Al2PO4(OH)3

San José Mine, Oruro City, Cercado Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia

Dimensions: 8 cm x 7.5 cm x 2.5 cm

The specimen is dominated by cm-scale and smaller black wurtzite twinned groups, and colorless augelite, with two groups of unusual parallel-growth bournonite. There is abundant red, translucent ZnS, probably also wurtzite, which forms odd strings that may be coatings on boulangerite, and minor quartz and pyrite.
