RM3072   Dadsonite, boulangerite and siderite

Sant Ponç, Barceloneta de Provença, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Dadsonite is a rare chloro-sulfoantimonide of lead, compositionally differing from boulangerite by this chlorine anion (1 atom of Cl for 60 atoms of S!). In the "bad-lands" area of Sant Ponç (or Saint-Pons) there are lenticular levels of siderite and calcite. The formation of this rare sulfosalt is based on the redissolution of other sulfosalts in the presence of chlorides.
The fine needles of dadsonite usually appear included in calcite, along with boulangerite. Once the calcite is removed by chemical processes, needles emerge in all their beauty. It can also be found forming radial aggregates in matrix cavities. The dadsonite from Sant Ponç can probably be considered among the best worldwide.


Size: 3.8 x 3.5 x 2 cm.
Found in ±1997.

RM3064   Thomsonite-Ca and analcime

Cyclopean Isles, Aci Trezza, Aci Castello, Catania, Sicilia, Italy

The Cyclopean Isles is a small volcanic archipelago off the coast of Aci Trezza, in the Etna volcanic complex. They are the type locality for the analcime species, which we can see in this specimen. This old time sample from the Freiberg Bergakademie shows us vacuoles with idiomorphic analcime crystals accompanied by colorless, well-defined thomsonite-Ca prisms those have grown on the analcime. The two labels give clear testimony to the antiquity of the specimen. A true mineralogical curiosity.

RM3057   Columbite-(Mn) and Albite

Shengus, Haramosh Mts., Skardu, Gilgit, Baltistan, Pakistan

In this specimen we can enjoy different columbite crystals, one of them predominant, although there are smaller, transparent and reddish ones. The analyzes of the specimen indicate the majority presence of niobium and manganese, so it is a columbite-(Mn) (you can check analysis in pictures). The main crystal stands out for its faceting, it has a small dent without affecting the quality of the piece. It comes from the collection of Michel Jouty (1930-2016).

RM3054   Chabazite-Ca

Rübenkeller, Nidda, Wetteraukreis, Darmstadt, Hesse, Germany

Rübenkeller is the famous historical locality for chabazite and phillipsite from about 1850 and was very prolific in zeolite specimens in the late 19th century. In this specimen, from the Freiburg Bergakademie, we can see various aggregates of very well defined, pseudocubic, transparent and very bright crystals, which fill the vacuoles of the volcanic rock. It is accompanied by a very interesting old handwritten label.

RM3042   Silver and Chrysocolla

Clara Mine, Oberwolfach, Ortenaukreis, Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

The silver specimens from this classic German mine has been known for a long time, but in these specimens silver is included in chrysocolla, of an intense greenish blue colour, and shows a remarkable luster, sometimes with golden iridescence. Under magnification we can see facets of crystals of this metal. We have analyzed these samples and the results indicate that they do not contain other metals detectable by SEM-EDS. These specimens are already a few years old.
