RM3012   Kaersutite

Lukov (Lukow), Teplice, Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic

These specimens from this Czech locality were initially cataloged as "hornblende", later studies indicated that it could be kaersutite, a member of the amphibole group. This specimen has a brownish tone that makes us think it could be a pseudomorphosis. It shows very well defined faces that can allow crystallography lovers to measure angles. An old sample.

RM3007   Malachite

Kakanda deposit, Lubudi, Lualaba, Congo, Democratic Republic of

These specimens of malachite present mamelonar, botryoidal to stalactic growths, with a very intense characteristic green color and silky luster.

RM2999   Pyrolusite and manganite

Gremmelsbach, Triberg im Schwarzwald, Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

A novelty from Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 2022. These specimens come from a recent find in this mining area of the Black Forest and are reminiscent of those found decades ago in this area. They show radial aggregates of extremely brilliant pyrolusite crystals that partially replace manganite. By X-ray diffraction we have been determined the presence of both species, even with a certain predominance of manganite. They usually appear on a matrix of pink granite or as groups of large crystals in parallel growth. In the specimens we can observe the inclined flattened terminal faces. They are highly aesthetic pieces those will become part of the best specimens of these species for European mineralogy. We will send the XRD to the buyer.


Size: 8.8 x 7.4 x 5.2 cm.
Main crystal: 4.2 cm.

Baryte crystals from this quarry are a classic of Catalan mineralogy. They appear in the fissures of the slates, usually covered by iron oxydes. In this specimen we can see various groups of prismatic crystals, brilliant and transparent, rich in faces. Among them, a larger one stands out in which we can see the faces of orthorhombic prisms of various orders truncated by pinacoidal faces. Nowadays it is very difficult to find specimens in this quarry and even less with the quality we offer.

RM2981   Fluorite and quartz

Sant Marçal (Matagalls) mines, Sant Marçal, Massís del Montseny, Viladrau, Girona, Catalunya, Spain

Fluorite specimens from Sant Marçal mines usually appear as aggregates of cubic crystals, defined, sometimes sprinkled or partially covered by quartz crystals. Yellow to greenish tones are the usual ones. Specimens with violet to bluish colors (depending on the type of incident light) are much less frequent and highly appreciated by collectors. These specimens we offer were collected at the beginning of the 70s. Some small nick, very common in these specimens, without affecting the quality. In this specimen we can observe cubic crystals with this bluish to greenish tone, translucent and disposed on a characteristic ochy "pegmatite" matrix. They are partially covered and on with small but brilliant quartz crystals.
