1.29" Molybdenite Crystal - Queensland, Australia

This is a small cluster of molybdenite crystals, collected from Wolfram Camp in Queensland, Australia. The crystals formed as thin sheets and display a beautiful metallic luster.

Molybdenite is a lustrous grey mineral that forms hexagonal crystals in layered sheets. Its chemical composition is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) and it typically has a similar appearance and feeling of graphite. It forms as sheets of molybdenum atoms that are sandwiched between sulfur atoms.

Molybdenite is the most important ore of the metal molybdenum and is currently being researched as a possible replacement semiconductor for silicon in transistors in electronic chips.
