Chalcocite
Formula: Cu2S
Chalcocite var: Ducktownite
Formula: Cu2S
Description: Numerous specimens were collected by former Burra Burra mine geologist, Graham Sweetman during 1980.
They were located in a weathered feldspar porphyry plug 3 m in diameter, at the base of the open cut, on the last bench mined before the mine closed. While many of these specimens show a very thin coating, and usually have pyrite clearly visible, G. Sweetman was able to recover several which on close examination suggested there is at least 1 mm of solid chalcocite coating, over a previously unaltered pyrite dodecahedrons. Aka: ducktownite.
Reference: Collection of former mine geologist G. Sweetman.

Libethenite
Formula: Cu2(PO4)(OH)
Description: Noble, R.J. states that "[t]he Burra libethenite frequently occurs in well-formed crystals, and significantly, has been observed pseudomorphed by azurite." [Libethenite at the Burra Copper mine]. Noble further sattes: "Crystals range in size from microscopic to 5 or 6 mm (rarely) with the most common crystal size being in the order of 0.5 to 2 mm. The libethenite crystals are well formed, with brilliant crystal faces, and range in colour from olive-green, in micro-crystals, through blackish green to black, in the larger crystals."
