Lazulite, Quartz, Siderite
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 8.5 x 2.2 cm
Rapid Creek, Dawson Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada
Ex. Martin Zinn
An exceptional rarity from the rares suite of the Zinn collection, featuring HUGE, wet-lusterd lazulite crystals to just over 2 cm, perched on contrasting quartz matrix. In person they have a rich royal blue color and much sharper form than is apparent from the pictures. This is a MAJOR specimen for the species, and likely dates back aways to earlier finds from the 1970s. It is the best piece I persoanlly have ever seen for sale of this mineral, from Canada. 8.7 x 8.5 x 2.2 cm
