Very few Siderites of this quality were discovered, we only had 3 pieces of this level, associating an exceptional gem with a color and brilliance, unusual for this mineral. These 3 best specimens were found at the very beginning of the discovery (2008) of this small deposit. The iridescent chalcopyrite sphenohedrons bring a very beautiful contrast to this excellent collectors item. Published in the Mineral Kingdom N°166.


Dimensions without the acrylic base, which is supplied with the mineralogical specimen.

The mineral is not glued to the base (soft putty).
