MOG01 Genthelvite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
7.0X 6.0X 5.2 cm
$4800

An impressive specimen hosting a large cluster of sharp brown genthelvite tetrahedrons.  The bulk of these clusters topped off around 3 cm, this one has considerably more size, and has more presence than the dimensions suggest.

Genthelvites were one of the big surprises to come from Huanggang, first appearing around 2012-2013.   Prior to this find, the species was mainly known as tiny crystals from Mont Sant Hilaire, with the od example from a couple locations in Pakistan occasionally showing up.  The size and quality of these however, was unprecedented.  
This piece is not 100% perfect-- there are some chips.  You can see them if you look in the pictures, though it displays exactly as shown, and for the price, is quite a good deal.  I remember one Chinese dealer had similar pieces priced from about $10,000-$15,000 at Tucson 2014.  Prices fluctuate, but this quality has not continued to come out-- in fact it comes from the same area/ pocket as the more expensive ones I saw with the other dealer.
