Kermesite with Calcite (Ref: AX-15-260)

Caiwa Mine, Danfeng Co. Shangluo Prefecture, Shaanxi Province, China
65mm x 55mm x 31mm
minID: K3R-D8U
A very nice display specimen of Kermesite crystals on matrix from the one time find that produced the best ever. Typical crude terminations on sharp crystals to nearly 3CM tall standing up from the matrix. In person the red glints of the Kermesite is very evident. Micro-crystals of an unknown mineral that seems to be Valentinite are a bonus. Delicate and fine, these are now very hard to find and expensive when available. A fine value ex Shields Flynn collection obtained from Bert Ottens. Sorry. This specimen has been sold. Please view alternatives below.
