Ludlamite with Vivianite
Blackbird Mine, Lemhi County
Idaho, United States
6.3 x 4.3 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


The Blackbird mine was a small Cobalt operation that in the 1950-1960s occasionally produced well crystallized Ludlamites. Sometimes with Vivianites, these were by far best of the specie found in the US, and some can be compared to good Bolivian material. This is a good small cabinet with both species in well developed crystals. Very hard to find anything larger than a thumbnail now, this is an early 1960 vintage piece ex Charles Noll collection.
