RM1253   Arsenic with Löllingite

Gabe Gottes Mine, Sankt Jakob vein, Neuenberg, Ste Marie-aux-Mines, Haut-Rhin, Alsace, France

A very old specimen from Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines. A matrix, full of cavities, those are partially covered by small but brilliant löllingite crystals and arsenic clustered together. With some quartz. We can enjoy this sample under magnification. We have analyzed the specimen and we will send results to the buyer. These specimens are extremely rare on the market.


Size: 6.4 x 5.0 x 4.0 cm.

RM1584   Hematite and quartz

Brézouard Massif, Ste Marie-aux-Mines, Haut-Rhin, France

This good size brilliant specimen is an old time hematite from "Le Brézouard", a early 80's finding in the area of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines. These specimens show a very characteristic hexagonal shape formed by several tabular to laminar brilliant hematite crystals forming aggregates interpenetrated and on a quartz matrix. A really classic specimen for French and "Sainte-Marie" mineralogy.


Size: 7.8 x 6.4 x 2.5 cm.
Main crystal: 8 x 4 mm.
Found in 1980's.

 

RM1583   Hematite and quartz

Brézouard Massif, Ste Marie-aux-Mines, Haut-Rhin, France

This brilliant specimen is an old time hematite from "Le Brézouard", a early 80's finding in the area of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines. These specimens show a very characteristic hexagonal shape formed by several tabular to laminar brilliant hematite crystals forming aggregates interpenetrated and on a quartz matrix. In this specimen highlights the visibility of the quartz crystals of the matrix, unusual, and the aggregates of small doubly terminated crystals of quartz on the hematite. A very aesthetic and classic specimen for the mining area of Sainte-Marie area.


Size: 7.0 x 5.1 x 1.5 cm.
Main crystal: 11 x 5 mm.
Found in 1980's.

 

RM1585   Fluorite and baryte

Bergheim, Ribeauvillé, Haut-Rhin, France

Very rich specimen formed by numerous sharp crystals of fluorite, with cubic habit, and very well defined faces and edges, good transparence, intense color between purple and violet with intense zoning. This color zoning becomes very evident when the crystals are exposed to the ultraviolet light (LW), since the fluorescence also presents this zoned cubic geometry. They are accompanied by several tabular crystals of baryte on a matrix layered by small quartz crystals.
These specimens come from the town of Bergheim, known for being on the Alsace wines route. Although fluorite crystals were already known in some of the mining works of the area, these specimens come from a work done in a "domaine" (vineyard) in 2017.


Size: 6.0 x 4.8 x 4.5 cm.
Main crystal: 6 x 6 mm.
Found in 2017.

Fluorescent under long wave UV
