NA14AJ7: Very sharp disphenoidal Chalcopyrite crystals with a pseudotetrahedral shape, some of them with very well defined parallel growths. They are very bright and are on a matrix with Dolomite, Calcite and Quartz. The sample has been sawed on the lower part to reduce the matrix. This kind of Chalcopyrite was not known at the locality until now.
