Seligmannite and Wurtzite
Lengenbach Quarry, Imfeld, Binn Valley, Wallis (Valais), Switzerland
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 3.3 x 3.1 cm
From the TYPE LOCALITY for this rare species, this specimen features a row of sharp, 1-2 mm seligmannite crystals in a protected cavity of sugary dolomite matrix. Atop the cluster, or accenting at its base depending on view, is a large, flatlaying, 1 cm wurtzite crystal. A rich specimen overall, and with the wurtzite a lot more to look at than most seligmannites, as a display specimen. From the collection of a longtime Lengenbach collector, which was sold off recently.
