Many tonnes of nantokite associated with cuprite and native copper were mined and processed.
When the cuprite boulders were hammered upon, an overwhelming smell of chlorine arose, and waxy, colorless masses of nantokite (CuCl) the size of footballs fell out.
The exhibit included salesite, percylite, changoite, dretzite, nantokite, szenicsite and more.
