SOLD Franklinite, single complete octahedron
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
2.9 x 2.7 x 2.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
Spring 2020

A single black octrahedral crystal from vintage 1930's ex. Warren Johansson collection. Dr Johansson was a prolific field collector and active trader well into his nineties. His label is with the specimen. Very nice face modifications and a slight melted look as is classic for the specie. Most Frankinites have considerable damage or are incomplete, but this one is all there, with only minor edge rough spots and one clean contact. Of course this is from the type locality which is really the only source of any sizable crystals worldwide, yet these were at one time plentiful in Franklin. A nice piece that can fit a Thumbnail box but just barely.
