Miniature, 5.0 x 3.0 x 2.7 cm
Yaogangxian Mine, Hunan Province, China
This sharp miniature displays like a banshee, with incredible luster and flashes of reflected light off all those complex cogswheel faces. It is a large single crystal, contacted in the back, but almost pristine and quite worthy of display from the front (just a few very trivial dings). The top is also complete. Most of these larger chinese bournonites tend to have far more damage, and this one displays so well and is so large in size that any small defects are inconsequential, especially at the price which gets you the finest bournonites for the price to hit the market in a long time!
