Molybdenite, Quartz
Miniature, 3.8 x 1.8 x 1.6 cm
Ogonja (Onganja), Seeis, Windhoek District, Khomas Region, Namibia
A fine and very attractive Molybdenite crystal from the famous locality of Onganja. Note the rare, 3-dimensional, exceptionally thick crystal morphology. The large crystal is 2.2 cm across, and bipyramidal. The luster is superb, and the habit of this layered crystal is quite interesting - half is a complete layered crystal, while the other half shows multiple complex crystal growth. Complete, but on a smaller scale. And the Molybdenite is on matrix, no less. A fine specimen. Ex. Charlie Key.
