This stuff looks so cool under my bigger rock scope(4500x) they  classified it as gangue,to go in their throw away pile. A lot I found in the 2nd class ore pile was loaded with nice chalcopyrite/some bornite, my bet it would ding at least 5% +Cu. The first class pile was shipped 8-10%+ as high as 16%

Beautiful pics man and very cool science. I have always loved minerals for there rarity and those who seek and share them.. If you were in my industry , with those smarts you would be a quarter way to a millionaire  if you applied that intelect towards another line of work. You chemistry geeks could make a fortune . Its not in the rocks though. Sleep broke gentleman.  Your smarts baffle me
