RM1409   Desautelsite con artinite

Artinite pit, Clear Creek area, Picacho Peak,, New Idria, San Benito Co., California, United States of America

A specimen for systematic collectors... A large group of needle-like colorless crystals (prismatic) of artinite, forming aesthetic rosettes. But in this sample we highlight some aggregates of desautelsite crystals, a rare manganese and magnesium carbonate found in very few locations. They are orange crystals forming groups together with the artinite.

Size: 4.3 x 1.6 x 1.8 cm.
