RM1694   Hematite with talc

Shabry Village, Ekaterinburg, Sverdlovskaya Oblast', Urals, Russia

Both minerals, hematite and talc, are relatively common, but what make up this piece not so common is this association. When I saw these pieces they immediately caught my attention. Huge size, aesthetic and brilliant crystals of hematite, of good size for the locality and for the species, rich in facets; they are included in a talc matrix, bright, scaly and green tones. Excellent and very interesting specimensa from the "deep" Russia.

Size: 6.5 x 4.8 x 4.0 cm.
Main crystal: 30 x 20 mm.


RM1535   Copper

Rubtsovskoe Cu-Zn-Pb deposit, Rudnyi Altai, Altaiskii Krai, Western-Siberian, Russia

Native copper specimens are one of my weaknesses. This specimen shows arborescent growths formed by copper crystals with rounded and complex faces. It is presented in a very aerial shape, elegant and with this characteristic and metallic color. An excellent piece of the "Mother Russia". Classic locality.

Size: 8.0 x 5.8 x 3.5 cm.

RM1432   Delhayelite

Yukspor Mt, Kola Peninsula, Khibiny Massif, Murmanskaja Oblast', Northern Region, Russia

Delhayelite is a rare phyllosilicate from the Khibiny massif, in the heart of the Kola peninsula. This area is well known for the large number of alkaline pegmatites that have contributed to the mineralogy a large number of new species. This specimen shows the classical form of the fibrous to laminar shape, with brilliance and a very intense orange fluorescence under the long-wave UV light, characteristic of the specimens of Khibiny. A mineral rarity.

Size: 4.0 x 2.8 x 1.5 cm.
