This spectacular specimen comes to us from the Madan Ore Field Rhodope Mountains, Smolyan Oblast Bulgaria. This specimen is a rare combination of Chalcopyrite, Sphalerite, Pyrite, Quartz that displays black and white crystal clusters.

Chalcopyrite is a copper iron sulfide mineral that crystallizes in the tetragonal system. Chalcopyrite is known to have a brassy to golden yellow color and a hardness of 3.5 to 4 on the Mohs scale. Chalcopyrite is metaphysically thought to aid with curiosity while seeking the desire to understand life, and systematic thinking.

Clear quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the world and is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. It can be found in many forms such as tumbled, carved and rough. It can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. Clear quartz is thought metaphysically to promote understanding, clarity, and is associated with inner strength.

The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, also known as fool's gold, is an iron sulfide. Pyrite is considered the most common of the sulfide minerals and is rated between 6 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Pyrite's metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold. Metaphysically Pyrite is believed to encourage self-recognition, as well as reveal secrets and memories.
