PKR26 Tetrahedrite with Bournonite on Quartz, with minor Pyrite
Mundo Nuevo District, Santiago de Chuco Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
11.4x 9.8x 5.6 cm
$480

A specimen from what has to be my favorite find of the trip-- a tetrahedrite crystal on an almost fractal quartz.  The habit of quartz on this piece and the positioning of the tetrahedrite make for a particularly beautiful specimen.

The tetrahedrite is coated with tiny crystals of bournonite, and comes from a find made within the last several months.  I saw a couple flats of this material in Tucson, but all were off matrix and had major damage issues.  I saw one good lot of specimens while in Peru, this piece comes from that group.
