Ferberite, Stannite, Quartz and Fluorite etc.
stock #8.1-146
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
5.6 x 4.2 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Spring 2019

A wonderful multi-specie specimen from the golden period of the great Yaogangxian mine. In fine condition, this is both esthetic and mineralogically complex. A complete label would have a long list including Ferberite, Stannite, Muscovite, Scheelite, Quartz, Fluorite, Dolomite and probably Wurtzite. The Ferberite is the dominent specie and is well defined, sharp and seems to be twinned. The Stannite crystals are numerous in clusters that covers an area over 3 CM across. The luster and overall composition makes this an especially choice piece. Displays well from several angles.

Dec 2018

A 360 degree specimen hosting a delicate cluster of Ferberite crystals pointing in all directions and slender Quartz prisms. Very tiny Muscovite and a few Scheelites are also on the piece as is typical from Yaogangxian where complex multi specie specimens were typical. The longest slender Quartz is 4.2 CM and doubly terminated. Some contacting that is not very noticeable, several terminations are a ragged, complex type that adds some esthetic complexity. Very displayable and a choice piece from the locale.
Ferberite- doubly terminated
stock #18-AX-1-405
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
7 x 2.6 x 1.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $240
Worldwide mix summer

An excellent sharp Ferberite crystal from the great Yaoganxian, with top bright luster. The crystal shows the distinct pointed tip termination that is the less common habit. Yaogangxian specimens are often multi-specie, there are almost always a few species on any specimen. This may seem like just a Ferberite crystal, but it has micro crystals of Fluorite, Quartz, Muscovite, Chalcopyrite and one small Bournonite. The color is jet black but looks metallic as it is so lustrous, in very good condition, a few contacts are visible but no real damage at all. Ferberite is not often attractive, but good lustrous crystals like this are.
Fluorite, Ferberite on Quartz with Muscovite and Arsenopyrite
stock #18.1-AX-15-246
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
6.7 x 5.2 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Worldwide mix summer

A choice multi-specie specimen from Yaoganxian, ex Shields Flynn collection. The Quartz in person is very clear, has a sharp termination and you can see Ferberite and Muscovite inside. There are unknown white inclusions inside as well. The Ferberite is lustrous, and the Fluorite is transparent as it should be. Not perfect however, when seen under 10x magnification there are rough spots and the smaller Feberite has chipping, but the overall quality is far better than average and this has the sort of esthetics that displays very well. The price reflects the imperfections which for many collectors makes this a very good value.
Ferberite & Dolomite
stock #10.1-024
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
5.3 x 3.3 x 3.8 cm (cabinet)
price: $250
Winter 2016-17

Lustrous black Ferberite crystals with sharp terminations contrast with the snow white Dolomite crystals. A nicely composed cluster that looks great from many angles. All the main crystals are in fine condition, there is a contact on one lower side edge that is not seen on display.
