RM3009   Pericline (var. Albite), Ilmenite, clinochlore and quartz

Auernig, Mallnitz, Spittal an der Drau, Carinthia, Austria

Very remarkable specimen formed by several aggregates of pericline crystals, a variety of albite, well faceted, defined and with striated faces. It is worth highlighting numerous very brilliant ilmenite crystals in this specimen, with well-defined hexagonal shape. Ilmenite is an unusual species in this locality in the words of the owner of the original collection, Rudolf Hasler (Bleiberg-Kreuth). They are accompanied by groups of clinochlore and quartz crystals. It belongs from the collection of Peter Seroka (Girona), with label.

RM2950   Crossite, riebeckite-glaucophane

Hallberg, Rigaus, Abtenau, Hallein, Salzburg, Austria

In this sample we can observe a large group of prismatic crystals, acicular, bright, with a dark violet to lavender color.
