14PE3 Enargite
La Libertad Mine, Santiago de Chuco Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
11.5x 9.0x 4.3 cm
$1600

A big enargite specimen from a very small recent find in Peru, of a style that has not been found in years.

 

Enargite specimens are primarily known from Montana, Taiwan, and a couple localities in Peru.  The first two locations have not produced specimens in decades, and the Peruvian mines have only produced small quantities of exceptionally ugly examples for the last several years.

 

This is a very rich specimen, the best example from a very small recent find.  It all looks somewhat jumbled in the pictures, but the crystals appear much more distinct in person, and the piece more three dimensional overall.

 

Saw marks on the back.
