Chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, pyrite and quartz

A very aesthetic and attractive specimen showing almost full paragenesis set – Chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite, pyrite, and quartz. The specimen is strongly oxidated – galena crystals lose their luster and chalcopyrite is oxidated with different stage and coated in some places by bornite.

Manganocalcite , quartz and pyrite

Exceptional and very aesthetic specimen presenting flat manganocalcite crystals developed on thin transparent quartz crystals, followed by shiny well shaped cubic pyrite crystals. Some of the pyrites have rainbow effect, due to a thin coating of bornite-covellite as result of the oxidation process.

Azurite, malachite, linarite

Azurite, malachite, linarite, bornite, cuprite and other secondary copper minerals developed in cracks of limestones.

„Automn“ Chalcopyrite , galena and quartz

Very attractive specimens presenting quartz and galena crystals on mother rock covered by chalcopyrite crystals. Due to oxidation chalcopyrite is coaterd by bornite, Interesting is that oxidation touch every crystal with different intensity, what most likely is due to crystal structur and surface deffects.

Quartz and chalcopyrite

Well shaped chalcopyrite crystals fallowed by white quartz crystals. Chalcopyrite is particlularly oxidated and coated by bornite and covelite. On some of the crystals some parts are coated by bonite and other by covelite, what most likely is due to dirrection of solutions flowing
