RM705   Calcite with Fluorite and quartz

Jiepaiyu Mine (Shimen Mine), Shimen As-(Au)deposit, Shimen, Changde, Hunan, China

A perfectly balanced specimen. On the one hand we have a large scalenohedral crystal (5.2 x 2.3 cm.) showing perfectly defined the 180° twin between two scalenohedrons. This crystal is very defined and "doubly terminated" shows good transparency and brilliance. On the other hand we have a group of calcite crystals, also scalenohedral, interpenetrating each other, brilliant and translucent, with a slight yellowish tone. They are disposed on a matrix of tiny quartz crystals on which observe small aggregates of cubic violet fluorite, also interpenetrated. A specimen to be displayed.

Size: 9,0 x 7,2 x 5,0 cm.
Main crystal: 52 x 23 mm.
Found in 04/2013.

Fluorescent under long wave UV

RM704   Calcite

Leiping Mine, Guiyang, Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Group of very sharp calcite crystals, two of them predominant, those show very developed prism faces mixed with the positive rhombohedron faces. Regarding the upper terminal faces we can observe the negative rhombohedron with striations. This type of crystallization is very unusual, I have not seen this combination, with this quality, never before. It presents some transparence and a more remarkable brilliance. It is accompanied by other calcite crystals of the same habitus, with a developed prism. A seldom seen piece for this mine. A sample for the best calcite collector display.

Size: 10,7 x 10,4 x 9,5 cm.
Main crystal: 8,0 x 3,5 cm.
Found in 2013.

RM802   Fluorite with arsenopyrite

Xianghualing Mine, Linwu, Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Isolated fluorite crystal showing cube and octahedron faces with polysynthetic growths. Nice zoning violet to deep violet color. Good brilliance and transparence. On a matrix with small arsenopyrite crystals.

Size: 11,2 x 5,8 x 3,0 cm.
Main crystal: 23 x 20 mm.

RM1557   Fluorite with quartz

Xianghualing Mine, Xianghualing Sn-polymetallic ore field, Linwu Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Very aesthetic group formed by sharp cubic crystals of fluorite, some of them interpenetrated, very transparent and with an excellent brilliance. They show a very uniform apple green color. They are disposed in an matrix of quartz crystals

Size: 11.7 x 5.8 x 5.8 cm.
Main crystal: 21 x 17 mm.


RM903   Fluorite with siderite

Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Druse of fluorite crystals with a marked color zoning. An intense violet crystal core and colorless in the edges, with some geometrical zoning on some edges. An interesting fluorite specimen. Accompanied by lenticular crystals of siderite. Very aesthetic.


Size: 12.3 x 9.0 x 3.8 cm.
Main crystal: 7 x 7 mm.


RM439   Scheelite with clinochlore and quartz

Yaogangxian mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang, Hunan, China

A very rich group of sharp psedo-octahedrical scheelite crystals, with an intense brown color, excellent luster and some transparence. They are disposed on a quartz matrix partially covered by small clinochlore green crystals. A very nice specimen for display.

Size: 8,2 x 6,4 x 3,5 cm.
Main crystal: 11 x 11 mm.
