TKR7 Molybdenite
Tae Hwa Mine, Neungam-ri, Angseong-myeon, Chungju, Chungcheongbukdo, South Korea
6.4x 4.0x 5.0 cm

A killer molybdenite from my collection (not from Tucson).  This piece features a complete, thick book standing nicely on a quartz matrix.


It's obviously not as hefty as some of the Australian pieces, but for Korea it is spectacular.  Actually, to find a crystal as sharp and well positioned from anywhere is quite unusual. 


This piece dates to sometime between the 1960's and early 1980's.
