Miniature, 4.4 x 3.7 x 2.6 cm
Keban Mine, Keban, Elazig Province, Eastern Anatolia Region, Turkey
SOLD
Mineral specimens from the Keban Mine of Turkey are rare and are very rarely available on the market. This fine old-time piece features sharp, lustrous, hexagonal, brown vanadinite barrels to 1.2 cm aesthetically and richly scattered on matrix with a druse of descloizite. This piece probably dates to the 1930s mining period, as it is accompanied by two old labels. Ex. Don Boydston Collection.
