China's Yaogangxian Mine has produced some of the world's best examples of the rare and fascinating sulfosalt mineral Boulangerite, which has the unusual property of occurring in such thin, accicular crystals that they can bend and twist into fantastical shapes. This specimen features abundant tufts and sprays of silvery boulangerite crystals on a matrix of quartz and pyrite/chalcopyrite. A great example of this rare and interesting species from the Proctor Family Trust Collection.
