Chalcophyllite from Majuba Hill, Pershing Co. Nevada

This is a specimen from a large micromount collection I bought off of eBay several years ago.  I am still in the process of taking photos of each specimen. 

This particular specimen is labeled Pharmacosiderite.  The photos below are at 40x taken with a digital camera simply held up to the eye piece.

  • Pharmacosiderite is brown cubic crystals
  • Mixite – Pale blue green acicular crystal sprays
  • Chalcophyllite- Thin green hexagonal platy crystal in the center.
