Very heavy silver-lead ore specimen from the Elmquist Prospect near Battle Mountain, Nevada, approx 105 x 90 x 80 mm. Massive black sulfide assemblage includes abundant silver-bearing galena -- lead sulfide, which shows curved distortion of the normally cubic crystal structure suggesting of the presence of silver to some observers; iridescent blue-green-purple covelite -- a rare form of copper sulfide; golden yellow pyrite -- iron sulfide; brassy yellow chalcopyrite -- copper-iron sulfide; and powdery white cerrussite -- lead carbonate. This is a spectacular specimen for its representation of the mining district and its splendid assemblage of ore-bearing minerals. State: Nevada City: Battle Mountain Date:
