This offering is sold.
Well-known to mineral collectors, Covellite is a rare copper sulfide with inclusions of golden pyrite, as seen in Brian Yatsattie's metallic blue Covellite Bear. An Italian mineralogist Niccolo Covelli verified this gorgeous and natural material he found at Mount Vesuvius, Italy in 1832. It's been found in the state of Montana as well. Covellite is said to enhance an optimistic point of view, helping dreams to be realized. About 2 1/2" long, 7/8" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
