Arsenopyrite and Sphalerite, Trepca Complex, near Mitrovica, Kosovska Municipality, Kosovo Medium Cabinet 3 x 7 x 14 cm $300. Online 4/21 SOLD
Truly a bizarre specimen from the complex. The piece appears to be a true stalactite or stalagmite of pure arsenopyrite and sphalerite. The only contact point is at the base the perimeter is completely crystallized. As such it displays from virtually any angle. No damage. It is an older piece and probably mined c. 1980s-1990s (?). Typical skarn-type contraction openings re-healed with late-stage mineralization.
