Diopside - Fe rich variety (Ref: AC-121)

Sala, Vastmanland, Sweden
49mm x 48mm x 30mm
minID: XYX-FE2
$150
A historic specimen from Sala in Sweden the type locality of Salite, which is a discontinued name for Fe rich Diopside. This was a Lechner collection piece (Austria) which was later sold by the Schortmanns's dealership. The Schortmann label dates this to the 1940's though the specimen is probably over 100 years old. The main crystal here is distinct, terminated and is a translucent oil-green color. Some scattered Chalcopyrite adds a contrasting gold. The Diopside is exposed partly but also is well-enclosed by the matrix which is mostly more Diopside. Simply never seen on the market this is a nicely crystallized bit of mineral history.
