Lollingite With Fluorite and Calcite
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 6.1 x 6.1 cm
Huanggangliang mine, Keshiketeng Qi, Chifeng city, Inner Mongolia, China
A rare combination piece with fluorite growing off aesthetic, large lollingite crystals. The lollingites (a species related to arsenopyrite) from this mine are being hailed as best of species material. Spear shaped, lustrous, silvery crystals to 7.9 cm in length host a complex, glassy and gemmy, colorless fluorite crystal (2.5 cm in length). A neat combo specimen from recent finds of spring 2012. Unlike most such pieces found, this has dramatic 3-dimensional aesthetics and clearly shows the bladed crystals standing up. Many are either damaged, or flat-laying
