RM2832   Andradite-Grossular

Distrito de Pampa Blanca, Castrovirreyna, Huancavelica, Perú

Good size and rich aggregate of andradite-grosularia crystals with an intense brown color on the surface, but with color zoning, clearer inside. The exterior of the sample shows a dark reddish-brown tone with very well defined trapezohedral crystals, but inside the crystals have a very aesthetic golden tone. Multi-layered bands ranging from reddish brown to green to gold are shown in the fracture zones of the piece. For this reason we prefer to label it as the andradite-grossular series.

RM2825   Columbite-(Fe), columbite-tantalite series

São José da Safira, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Floater crystal of columbite-(Fe), with a huge size for the species. We can observe numerous facets, some with striations, with brilliance. The specimen indicates "repaired" since a part (see photo) has been repositioned in its place, without affecting the quality. It is accompanied by minor lepidolite. Columbite specimens of this size are not common. We have analyzed the specimen and, in the attached diagram, we can see the results which indicate sample is in the columbite-(Fe) domain. Minor traces of Ti are present. We will send this results to the buyer. An exceptional piece.

RM2805   Quartz with Halloysite inclusions, "mango quartz"

Cabiche mine, Cabiche, Quípama, Boyacá, Colombia

Quartz specimens from this Colombian mine, located in the Boyacá emerald mining area, have been well known since the end of the last century. By 2017, new galleries were opened those located different geodes. These crystals, called "mango quartz" or "crown quartz" were found in them, with inclusions that, after being recently analyzed, were determined as halloysite. The inclusions show filamentous structures and the tips of the crystals turn to orange tones. On our website we have already sold some samples with these inclusions on sale, without the orange coloration. Really aesthetic and on a matrix with goethitized dolomite-siderite.

RM2602   Römerite with coquimbite, krausite...

Javier Ortega Mine, Huachuas, Lucanas, Ayacucho, Perú

In this specimen we can observe brilliant aggregates of brown transparent römerite crystals, a very rare iron sulphate. They are accompanied by coquimbite showing an intense violet color under fluorescent light or LED type. They're accompanied by yellow metavoltine/copiapite crystals, along with minor fibrous halotrichite. Note that under the magnifying glass we can navigate in a world of brilliant crystals, some of which of krausite species (yellowish to grey transparent). We left this identification pleasure to the collector. Regarding its environmental stability, this sample has been stored during more than eight years without further alteration.
