are colored a slightly lustrous, metallic silvery gray. The arsenopyrite
is intergrown with nearly black Ferberite, which provides some good
contrast. The crystals are nicely shaped, nearly cubic forms with crisp
edges and sharply formed points. There is no damage to the arsenopyrite

about crystals/mineral specimens from this location
a superb specimen of the mineral ARSENOPYRITE. The crystals are
sharp and crisply geometric with bright-as-a-mirror silver faces that
reflect the light in flashing hot spots. This very showy and highly
lustrous specimen comes from Yao Gan Xien, Bai Shi Du, Yi Zhang, Hunan
Province, China. This a very fine sample of this mineral, with flashing
silver faces and glitzy appearance helping make this a highly aesthetic
specimen. I picked out this piece at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral
Show from a Chiense dealer who was set up at one of the freeway shows.
about gems, rocks and minerals
major ore of arsenic, arsenopyite can contain a small amount of gold
as an impurity. Although an ore of arsenic, it is not intentionally
mined for that reason. In processing the ore of other elements some
arsenopyrite is "accidentally" included and gives off its
arsenic as fumes that are then recovered. This "accidental"
source supplies most of the world's needs in arsenic. Oddly, when struck,
it is said to give off a garlic-like odor.
Arsenopyrite makes attractive mineral specimens as well. It's well formed
crystals show a distinct and interesting crystal form. A typical crystal
contains a diamond shaped dome atop a prismatic crystal. The crystals
have sharp acute angles that are a marked contrast from other sulfides
that generally have only obtuse angles.
