Large Cobaltite Crystal on Matrix
Large Cobaltite Crystal on Matrix from Tunaberg, Nykoping, Sodermanland, Sweden
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description This Cobaltite specimen has a lot going for it. Firstly, it is a huge, sharp crystal to still remain on matrix - and it is solidly anchored to matrix. It is 2 cm tall, a little narrower and complete all around 360 degrees. It has great luster and sharp pyritohedral form. Overall, it's a very pretty matrix Cobaltite, given the stark contrast of the silver crystal with the bright golden matrix of Chalcopyrite and ore. If not the type locality, this is certainly the world's best locality for the species and the most desirable. Ex. Colonel Washington Roebling, Smithsonian, and Steve Smale collections.
