Wutong (Wudong) Mine, Liubao ("Babu"), Cangwu Co., Wuzhou Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Cabinet, 13.0 x 8.6 x 5.8 cm
Lustrous, jet-black sphalerite crystals, some twinned, form a fine and very rich cabinet zinc ore specimen from the well-known Wudong Mine of China. This lead-zinc mine is much better known as the source of the rhodochrosites currently coming from China. There is rhodochrosite on the back, which confirms the source. Ore are specimens very rare from this locality. Ex. Wes Parker Collection.
