RM1029   Coquimbite with krausite, metavoltine and halotrichite

Javier Ortega Mine, Huachuas, Lucanas, Ayacucho, Peru

Only a handful of localities those offer us this quality coquimbite crystals. In this specimen we can enjoy a hexagonal shape crystal of this rare iron and aluminium sulfate showing an intense violet color under fluorescent light or LED type.

RM1377   Arsenopyrite with chalcopyrite

Julcani, Angaraes, Huancavelica, Peru

These specimens of Peruvian arsenopyrite stand out for their excellent luster and perfection of its crystals. With the camera I am not able to capture its real beauty. On a sulfide matrix we can enjoy hundreds of arsenopyrite crystals, prismatic, with defined terminal faces, rather than well-defined. They're accompanied by chalcopyrite crystals with dull luster, but gold tone, also well-defined and twinned. Brilliance and quality. A novelty of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 2016.

RM736   Realgar with pararealgar, seligmanite and galena

Palomo Mine, Castrovirreyna, Huancavelica, Peru

This specimen shows several mineral species. The matrix which "supports" all of them is a group of huge size galena crystals with sharp cube-octahedral faces. Partially covering them we can see large groups of flattened realgar crystals. As alteration of these realgar crystals, due to the light, we have a patina, between yellow to orange, pararealgar. Between these galena crystals some orpiment aggregates, with a very intense yellow color.
We would like to emphisize in this specimen the presence of numerous seligmanite (PbCuAsS3) prismatic crystals, with a luster that makes them stand out. Evidently magnification is necessary to enjoy all their forms. Accompanied by chalcopyrite, pyrite and quartz. As you can see, it is a complete and representative specimen from this Peruvian mine.
