Fairfieldite Albite
Foote Lithium Co. Mine (Foote Mine), Kings Mountain District, Cleveland Co., North Carolina, USA
37 x 19 x 56mm

A wonderful fairfieldite specimen from the Foote Mine, in Cleveland Co., North Carolina, USA! This specimen features several groupings of large, sharp fairfieldite crystals on an albite matrix. The piece is crystallized on both the front and the back side, and one large crystal appears to be a twin. The luster of the fairfieldite is very high, appearing almost wet. The specimen is in good condition and displays well from several angles. The Foote Mine began operations in about 1938. It is famous for rare phosphates and silicates, boasting an impressive list of over 150 species! In it’s prime, the Foote produced some of the finest fluorapatite and bikitaite in the world, along with many other minerals such as rhodochrosite, lithiophyllite, roscherite, fairfieldite, childrenite, etc. The mine has since ceased operations and is now flooded. Material from this rather obscure U.S locality is very hard to find on the market today, and typically consists of small micromounts. Comes with a custom acryclic base. Ex. Jack Eaker Collection.
