Arsenopyrite, Quartz, Siderite, Dolomite, Muscovite
Panasqueira, Castelo Branco District, Portugal
8.5 x 6.1 x 5.6 cm.
A very attractive FIVE-mineral combo from the classic Panasqueira locality in Portugal. It features a large terminated Quartz crystal which is hosting well-crystallized examples of Arsenopyrite, Siderite, Muscovite, and Dolomite. A classic combination that is not often seen, in a very attractive configuration. This specimen is a FLOATER; even the bottom of the Quartz crystal has re-crystallized (“self-healed”) and is covered with countless tiny crystal faces (see below). Lots of interesting details for you to explore all the way around.
