Monteponi Mine, Iglesias, Carbonia-Iglesias Prov., Sardinia, Italy

85mm x 55mm x 55mm
Definitely a remarkable specimen found in the 1950s recently acquired from a very old Monteponi miner, not very easy finding such a specimen nowadays. It consists in a cluster of translucent tetragonal prisms with striated lateral faces. Some edge bruise as seen in the pics and a contact on the base of the sample (image 6) can be observed but overall in good conditions damage-wise, also considering that we are talking about a 60 years old specimen. The natural colour is a amber grey with a light reddish hue, under long and mid wave length UV light it shows a yellow reddish fluorescence. 4
