Kosnar purchased back many Sweet Home specimens from high-graders, including 1-cm tetrahedrite crystals, ruby-red hubnerite crystals, twinned stromeyerite, and good crystals of goyazite, svanbergite and fluorite (Bancroft, 1984).
Minerals that are part of the massive ore assemblage identified by petrographic techniques and described by Honea (1992) and Wenrich and Aumente-Modreski (this issue), in general have also been identified as euhedral crystals in hand specimens, with the exception of stromeyerite, which has not yet been seen in hand specimens.
It was found during electron microprobe analysis, associated with bornite, digenite, stromeyerite, and possibly jalpaite.
However, ask what else comes from the Sweet Home mine and, at best, the answer might be pyrite, fluorite and quartz; few people know of the brilliant orange hubnerite or the microscopic stromeyerite.
Electron microprobe analyses for 28 elements were completed on 468 crystals of barite, bornite, chalcopyrite, dickite, digenite, dolomite, fluorapatite, fluorite, galena, hubnerite, illite, jalpaite, muscovite, pyrite, quartz, rhodochrosite, sphalerite, stromeyerite, tennantite, tetrahedrite, topaz and triplite.
