Chalcopyrite (Okiep Copper Dist. South Africa)
Okiep Copper District, Northern Cape, South Africa. 55mm x 30mm x 25mm.
A lovely large chunk of Chalcopyrite from the Okiep Copper District, this area was the very first hub of copper mining in South Africa, there is no more mining in the area, the mines have been re-habilitated, smelters closed and all that remain are the pictures, the history and odd minerals that come through from old collections as this one did. Estimated shippig weight including packaging +/- 230gr.
