Picromerite (Schonite) on Halite
Potash Mine, Rossleben, Querfurt, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany
Miniature, 5.7 x 4.5 x 3.6 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn
A sharply crystallized example of this rare sulfate species, formerly known as Schonite, from a classic locality long abandoned. Minor halite is associated underneath and around the backside. It is, overall, a very attractive miniature. It carries an old label from the Bergakadmemie Freiberg. Sharp and complete all around, very 3-dimensional.
