Kamoya, Kambove, Katanga Copper Crescent
Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3 x 2.6 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
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.
An excellent Psuedomorph from Niaca with bright, lustrous metallic gold and silver hues. The condition is excellent and the esthetics are far better than most. These have occasionally been found in this famed mine, but never very many and none for some years.
3 x 1.8 x 1.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
Bright, sparkling and lustrous curved Mimetite crystals from Tsumeb in perfect condition. A small but fine example that looks good from every angle. Esthetic yet very affordable for this quality.
Very striking, esthetic, sharp and sizable Azurite with deep color and areas of Malachite alteration. In excellent condition and with textbook quality form. Despite all the many Azurites from Tsumeb over the past century, such fine examples have always been highly prized and are rarely available. Much better in person
