SOLD Carrollite
stock #SOLD 17.1-750
Kambove
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
4.2 x 3.2 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $0
Pre Holiday 2017

A very big, sharp and lustrous fine Carrolite single crystal. Far beyond the average in quality, this is a killer example. Contacted on the backside where it was attached but in perfect condition on the front. The faces are mirror bright and shows subtle growth structures. The Kambove mine was by far the best source of Carrollite in the world. Particularly fine crystal for the size and clean condition, the form is textbook sharp and impressive.

Kamoya, Kambove, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
4.7 x 3.1 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $190
Spring 2017

Carrollite with very bright metallic luster on a nice miniature specimen. There have been no new finds of Carrollite for a few years now, but for a time the Kambove mine was a prolific source for the best specimens ever found. This bright miniature has sharp crystals to 1.3 CM size, there are some contacts and bruises seen on some angles but they are relatively small. More perfect, larger specimens are now trading for many thousands, this piece is a lot more modest but still has top luster and nice form. An affordable alternative that looks much better than the mine run.

Kamoya, Kambove, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3 x 2.6 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $380
Fall 2015

Fine, sharp silver Carrollite crystals are set on contrasting matrix in an esthetic arrangement. The crystals show complex modifications and growth patterns. Some micro crystals of what looks like Vesigneite are also present. Green copper staining and secondary minerals adds additional contrast. In very good condition which is remarkable for such a delicate mineral. Far better than average.
Carrollite

KOV open cut, Kamoto, Kolwezi
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.2 x 1.9 x 2.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $250
pre Tucson 2015 update

A quite fine, sharp, lustrous, undamaged and well positioned Carrollite crystal on matrix. Good Carrollites have gotten hard to find. The great discoveries in the Congo were the best by far worldwide, but no fine pieces have come out in years, even damaged examples are scarce. This specimen though small has fine form with nice growth patterns on the faces. The crystal is 1.4 CM across.
