W6J-54YBismuthinite-Stibnite Series (Var: Horobetsuite) (Bi,Sb)2S3 to (Sb,Bi)2S3

Multiple photos available
04740050015667217859304.jpg
Colavi Mine, Colavi subdistrict, Machacamarca mining district, Cornelio Saavedra Province, Potosí, Bolivia

Dimensions: 38 mm x 20 mm x 14 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 38 mm

A crystal of bright metallic antimonian bismuthinite ((Bi1.7,Sb0.3)Σ=2S3, as determined by SEM-EDX) showing the layered bismuthinite habit; the crystal is embedded in an unidentified dull gray crust where lie earthy yellow spots of, what is likely Bismite. Not the prettiest but quite unusual. JFC collection and photograph.

St Ives Consols, St Ives, Cornwall, England, UK

Dimensions: 50 mm x 30 mm x 30 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 13 mm

Well-formed intergrown gunmetal grey Chalcocite crystals measuring up to 1.3 cm; minor green oxidation products (Malachite? Paratacamite? Brochantite?) coating some crystals. Classic Cornish specimen but exact locality is unsure. Most probably from St Ives Consols; or from Levant Mine or Geevor Mine? JFC collection.

2LM-18CArsenopyrite FeAsS , Molybdenite MoS2

00928450015569604358685.jpg
Hashitu Mo deposit, Linxi Co., Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China

Dimensions: 60 mm x 60 mm x 20 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 40 mm

A ca 1.5 cm thick layer made of sharp molybdenite crystals with a 4 cm cluster of Arsenopyrite cristal laying on; also associated is a small black somewhat tetragonal crystal of a yet unidentified mineral (possibly Sphalerite or Stannite) (overall 6 x 6 x 2 cm). A quite unique specimen, said to be recently (2018-19) mined for Inner Mongolia. The thick layer of Molybdenite crystals suggests a vein deposit origin, not from a skarn one. Discussions with Bert Ottens suggested that these specimens could come from the Hashitu Mo deposit, Linxi Co., Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture) (see: Miner Deposita, DOI 10.1007/s00126-017-0745-5) or, although this sounds less likely, from the Weilasituo Ag-polymetallic deposit near Bairendaba (Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture)). JFC collection. B. Arnaldi photo.

Kamoya, Kambove District, Haut-Katanga, DR Congo

Dimensions: 135 mm x 120 mm x 85 mm
Field of View: 50 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 40 mm
Weight: 2000 g

A single complex crystal of Chalcopyrite nested in a Calcite matrix. The crystal is ca. 2 x 2 x 4 cm (it goes deep inside the vug and its bottom can be seen through a small fracture in the front of the specimen) - see child photos; it features combination of highly lustrous faces and a few slightly striated ones. Other minor chalcopyrite crystals and massive Carrolite are also present. Collected ca. 2017 at the same time as the “big find” of the large carrolites. JFC collection and photograph.
