Kesterite with Mushingtonite on Muscovite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.8 x 4.7 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $680
Spring 2017

Textbook perfect crystals of the rare mineral Kesterite that are coated with green Mushingtonite and perched on a Muscovite matrix. From the prolific locality of Mt Xuebaoding, this is a particularly fine specimen. The crystals reach 1 CM and are undamaged, complete and have some distinct twinning. This area has produced the best Kesterites ever found, and that zone of mining is now closed, there have not been new specimens for a few years and may never again be produced. A modern Chinese classic.
