DBR34 Sphalerite on Lollingite with Arsenopyrite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China 6.1x 4.6x 3.1 cm
6.5x 5.3x 3.3 cm
An excellent, damage free combination specimen of the highly desirable and very rare yellow sphalerite on a lollingite book. The sphalerite is lustrous and gemmy, the same quality as the original pieces that were found-- later pieces tend to be less transparent.
This is also the only sphalerite/ lollingite combo that I have seen, it is a very beautiful and well balanced piece.
