New Specimen Update 3 August 2018

2 August 2018

Hello All,

This weeks update features a selection of fine minerals from various worldwide localities including:-

  • A beautiful aesthetic group of velvety, botryoidal Mimetite crystals varying from a zesty-lemon to a rich egg yolk-yellow, from San Pedro Corralitos in Chihuahua, Mexico
  • A large and perfect rhombohedral crystal of Calcite from Tsumeb of outstanding quality and aesthetic appeal. Light grey and pinkish-red, with a cloudy off-white interior, razor-sharp edges and highly lustrous faces and perched on a matrix of Dolomite and lime green Conichalcite
  • A magnificent display specimen of burnt reddish-orange "Eisenkiesel", a variety of Quartz, richly covering a bed of flattened, deep plum Fluorite crystals from the Wölsendorf Fluorite Mining District, Germany
  • A splendid cabinet specimen of glistening deep blueish-green radiating rosettes of Atacamite on an iron-rich limestone matrix and from the type locality of the Atacama Region in Chile. Flat circular sprays of acicular Atacamite crystals contrast nicely with the light powder-green spheres of Halloysite
  • A striking cluster of lustrous, vivid sky-blue Beryl variety Aquamarine crystals containing many gemmy zones from Malyshevo, Middle Urals, Russia. Many smaller prisms of Beryl pervade the matrix, some of which are tending to the variety Goshenite
  • An amazing example of Creedite, in a Sputnik-like ball of radiating pale tangerine to peachy-orange crystals, averaging 8cm in diameter. A classic specimen from the Navidad mine in Durango, Mexico
