Wurtzite with Quartz (Ref: AX-15-323-(C093))

Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref., Hunan Province, China
80mm x 67mm x 58mm
minID: JHM-AKU
$2600
A superb, major specimen of well crystallized Wurtzite perhaps the best example from the great Yaoganxian Mine. By far this is the best and biggest specimen I have seen from this prolific locality, and was on exhibit in the Tucson TGMS special exhibit of Chinese minerals a decade ago. Ex Shields Flynn collection obtained from Bert Ottens who originally discovered Wurtzite at Yaoganxian. Nearly pure Wurtzite, there are hundreds of sharp crystals to 6 MM on all sides with just a few Quartz crystals as contrast. In fine condition and although a "dark ugly" it is oddly attractive. Several have considered this the very best Wurtzite from China, it is obviously important for the locale and the specie.
