ICN05 Lollingite with Sphalerite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
6.3x 5.1x 2.8 cm
$480

A sizable and very bright spray of lollingite, with an etched yellow sphalerite crystal perched on its edge.  The lollingite gains an extra sparkle from the numerous arsenopyrite prisms scattered about and half embedded in its surfaces. 

These combinations first appeared several months ago, and have remained reasonably rare.  I"ve seen fewer than 10, though given that the sphalerite on this piece is kind of ugly, I have priced the piece as a lolligite specimen alone.
