Wulfenite
stock #19.1-056
Stefanie Mine, Bad Blieburg, Gailitaier Alpen and Karnish Alpen
Carinthia, Austria
9.3 x 6.8 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $580


A very well crystalized Wulfenite from the area of the original discovery of the specie (Bad Blieburg). The area mining began in the 1500s and was extensive, producing a wide variety of habits and occasionally some extraordinary pieces. The Stefanie mine was the last to close and quite famous as a productive locale. This piece is well above average, the crystals to over 1.3 CM and most show sharp edge and or corner modifications. In fine condition overall, however a very close inspection can find some tiny edge bruises that are not really noticeable in normal display. The color and luster are excellent and stronger in person. A choice older specimen.
Hydrozincite, Smithsonite - Type locality for Hydrozincite
stock #16.1-685
Bleiberg District, Gailtaier Alpen and Karnische Alpen
Carinthia, Austria
9.5 x 5.6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Worldwide mix summer

A large specimen from Bleiberg (Type locale) that is mostly Hydrozincite some formed over and with Smithsonite. Very well defined bothroids on a cast of Gossan that has additional layers of Hydrozincite seen on the underside. In fine condition, fluorescent and with some luster. One old label included mentions only the Smithsonite. For what is often an un attractive mineral specie, this is quite attractive and well composed.
