Osmundsberget, Rättvik, Dalarna County, Sweden

Dimensions: 4.7 cm x 2.7 cm x 1.9 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 19 mm

Arborescent silver is all that is holding this specimen together. The calcite is riddled with it. Each branch has smaller octahedral crystals on the edge. This is one of the specimens I purchased from a collector at the 2016 Munich Show. He passed on some other information about this specimen which is always of interest. He said that this silver specimen at one time belonged Bergmastare Bjorn Tiberg, who was the son of Hugo Tiberg manager of the manager of the Långban Mine in the mid 1800s.

This is a unique specimen of delindeite from the Benitoite Gem Mine. The stacked plate-like crystals of red delindeite was deposited first and acted almost as a repulsive agent while a benitoite crystal grew around it. The delindeite group is approximately 2.5 mm across. There is another group deeper within the benitoite crystal. A Joaquinite-Ce crystal is visible in the back ground. It was found from mine run material purchased from Bryan Lees in 2010 and was part of the material mined by Collector's Edge in 2003. Identification was performed by Mike Rumsey at the British Museum of Natural History in London. Mike provided the accompanying microphotographs in black and white.
