New Specimen Update 01 March 2019

27 February 2019

This week we have a wonderful selection of minerals from European localities: 

  • A superb and classic cluster of dark purple Fluorite crystals from the Wölsendorf Fluorite Mining District in Germany. Excellent cubic Fluorite measuring to 3.3cm display some stepped growth, with a light dusting of light metallic yellow Pyrite
  • A fine display of growth-zoned, radiating colour banding within silky green Malachite from Siegen in Germany. The Malachite is lustrous and has formed on a dark red-brown Goethite matrix and comes with a Krantz label
  • Two specimens of intergrown octahedral and dodecahedral Cuprite crystals measuring to 1.1cm and coated in a druse of micro-crystallised green Malachite, from Rudabánya in Hungary
  • A superb miniature of a yellow, gemmy to translucent double terminated and twinned Calcite crystal, displaying the twinned re-entrant habit to good advantage. Measuring to 4.2cm and perched mid-way on a Calcite matrix from the Lepoivre Quarry, Belgium
  • A classic lustrous coal-black twinned metallic crystal of Cassiterite measuring to 3.4cm from Horní Slavkov, Czech Republic
  • A beautiful specimen of Native Silver forming a 1.3cm wide wire-loop atop the specimen. Several smaller Native Silver wire clusters are scattered over colourless Quartz which coats the Calcite matrix. A rare old-time specimen from the Spanish silver mining area of Guadalcanal, Andalucía; possibly from the Pozo Rico Mine
