Posnjakite
stock #18.1-511
Spania Dolina, Banska Bystrica County
Banska Bystrica Region, Slovakia
6.2 x 3.9 x 3.1 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $140
Dec 2018

A fairly dense deep blue color mass of crystalized Posnjakite from Spania Dolina. This ancient Copper mine has been worked for over 1000 years and probably even in the Neolithic era. At times known as Herrungrund (German periods often seen on old labels). This deposit is very large and has many old mines along a belt of several kilometers. This zone has produced a number of colorful Copper species along the oxidized zone of the deposit. Thgis is a choice specimen for the area.
Langite
stock #16.1-1282
Spania Dolina, Banska Bystrica County
Banska Bystrica Region, Slovakia
12.2 x 9.1 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Worldwide mix summer

Incredibly rich, a large old Langite specimen with a fine blue-green color that is quite intense. This secondary copper Sulphate specie is a dimorph of Wroewolfeite and can be confused with it or Posnackite. While Langite is found as micros at many localities, the best and largest specimens are mostly from old Slovakian mines. The matrix here has at least some Langite on every side, but the 3 main faces have the best coverage and most distinct crystals. This could easily be made in to several very good specimens but we like the large size for impact. Formerly in the Vrzal collection in Brno, Czech Republic.
Kermesite - red crystals with Valentinite
stock #AX-27-211
Pezinok
Bratislava region, Slovakia
6.3 x 4. 7 x 2.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Worldwide mix summer

Dense, rich red coverage of needles in clusters, radiating sprays and clumps. There are small Stibnites and a druse of Valentinite crystals behind the Kermesites. Unusually bright red color and in fine condition. Ex Terry Szenics collection, this presents super well under magnification with very impressive crystal structures seen. These older Slovakian Kermesites are very different from the later Chinese specimens, and the color is far brighter red.
