Quartz with Chalcopyrite from Douglas Creba

Quartz with Chalcopyrite

An active littel bed of Cornish Quartz with iron staining and a smattering of Chalcopyrite.








This piece was collected by the late Douglas Creba, a renowned mineralologist who became a Cornish Bard, and his Bardic name was Den an Carrygy - 'Man of the Rocks'.  We are fortunate to know his family and to share with you some of the duplictes of his main collection, which used to reside in the Wheal Martyn Museum.


Chalcopyrite is known as 'Fool's Copper'.  It is copper iron sulfide and forms as a glossy coating or as tetrahedral crystals.  It is associated with finding lost items and boosting perceptive abilities.  Chalcopyrite is a 'lucky stone', and is used for business growth and prosperity.
