Sugilte with Aegerine from N'Chwanning III Mine, Kalahari manganese fields, Republic of South Africa [db_pics/pics/sugilite4a.jpg] Sugilte with Aegerine from N'Chwanning III Mine, Kalahari manganese fields, Republic of South Africa [db_pics/pics/sugilite4b.jpg]



SUGILITE4 - Sugilte with Aegerine
$ 575.00 SOLD
N'Chwanning III Mine, Kalahari manganese fields, Republic of South Africa
thumbnail - 6 x 3.9 x 2.5 cm

Within the last 2 years, a small pocket of crystallized Sugilite was found at the N'Chwanning III mine. Sugilite is typically found at the Wessels mine, in solid chunks, so this was an amazing discovery. Fibrous purple crystals grow in the seams of the Aegerine matrix. The Sugilite is an electric purple (daylight) that shifts to an electric magenta under incandescent light. Many seams of fibrous needle Sugilite twist and turn in the greater matrix, in a 360 degree view of color.  No damage.

Within the last 2 years, a small pocket of crystallized Sugilite was found at the N'Chwanning III mine.

Fibrous purple crystals grow in the seams of the Aegerine matrix. The Sugilite is an electric purple (daylight) that shifts to an electric magenta under incandescent. No damage.

Cinnabar on Quartz with chalcopyrite from Nikitovka Deposit, Central Donbass, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine [db_pics/pics/cinnabar1a.jpg] Cinnabar on Quartz with chalcopyrite from Nikitovka Deposit, Central Donbass, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine [db_pics/pics/cinnabar1b.jpg] Cinnabar on Quartz with chalcopyrite from Nikitovka Deposit, Central Donbass, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine [db_pics/pics/cinnabar1c.jpg]



CINNABAR1 - Cinnabar on Quartz with chalcopyrite
$ 325.00 SOLD
Nikitovka Deposit, Central Donbass, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine
miniature - 5 x 4.5 x 1.5 cm

Beautiful red with a shimmering luster. It looks great from both sides (as pictured), the cinnaber crystals wrap around the edge indicating this was a floater. We see loads of cinnabar from china, usually a single crystal here and there (occasionally with crystals glued on calcite matrix as well), Ukraine cinnabar is very scarce on the market, and this is a substantially large cluster of them. No obvious damage (put it under a scope and 1 or 2 rubbed spots), It weighs 67 grams.

Smithsonite Var. Cuprian from Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/smithsonite4a.jpg] Smithsonite Var. Cuprian from Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/smithsonite4b.jpg]



SMITHSONITE4 - Smithsonite Var. Cuprian
$ 1395.00 SOLD
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
small cabinet - 6 x 5 x 3 cm

These bright apple-green copper-rich crystals seem to glow from within. The largest Smithsonite crystal is a full 2 cm across. Tsumeb as most people know has been arguably the most exciting copper rich mine ever worked. The sheer variety of minerals and various crystal forms is truly amazing. Within this "seam," all the crystals are nicely intact without damage.
