Rhodochrosite and Sphalerite with Pyrite
stock #10.1-069
Eagle Mine, Gilman District, Eagle Co.
Colorado, United States
11.5 x 9.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


A Colorado classic, the Eagle mine has provided many fine specimens over the years. This is a very good Rhodo with individual sharp rhombs to 2 CM covering most of the surface. Scattered Sphalerites on the display side (and many more on the reverse side) add extra sparkle. It is rare to find examples this good from the location. This old timer is in exceptional condition, all the main rhombs are perfect. A great addition for a Colorado collection or a rhodochrosite suite.
Pyrite (Pyritohedral) with Dycrasite and Friburgite
stock #AC- 274
Eagle Mine, Gilman District, Eagle Co.
Colorado, United States
5.2 X 4.8 CM (miniature)
price: $50


well crystallized and classic for the mine this is almost all Pyrite with some Galena matrix. Magnification shows the "ugly grey-black" coatings on the pyrites are micros of Friburgite in "cruller" form with what appears to be Dycrasite. A good reference piece for this prolific mine and not that ugly overall!
