1.9" Hematite Quartz, Dolomite, Chalcopyrite and Pyrite Association

This is a beautiful association of quartz crystals with hematite spots, white dolomite crystals, chalcopyrite crystals and small pyrite crystals. This gorgeous specimen was collected from the Jiangxi Province of China.

The Jiangxi Province of China produces a wide variety of high quality minerals, with fluorite, barite, quartz, stibnite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite and galena being just some them.

Some of the well known specimens to come from this region are beds of hematite spotted quartz crystals that are commonly associated with galena, dolomite, chalcopyrite, pyrite and siderite crystals. The hematite spots are typically small and round, and are centralized near the crystal terminations. They can be found as both inclusions and/or encrusting the outside of the quartz crystals. Many of the specimens that are associated with chalcopyrite feature colorful iridescence.
