Exceptionally fine iridescent blades of Covellite on matrix! This is the best Colorado Covellite I have seen in all my years of searching! Colorado Covellite is usually golden and massive but this specimen looks more like the fine blades one would find on a very fine Butte specimen! The color is dark blue with purple-red accents when exposed to light. An amazing miniature! From the Little Annie Vein, Summitville, Rio Grande County, Colorado. Measures 6.2 cm by 5.3 cm in size.
