Search for Photos

Enter a mineral name (eg Almandine), and part of a region name (eg Alaska) and this search will find all photos from localities within the region of that mineral. Select type of photo to search and either check all photos or select a subtype for the photos. Alternatively, enter a keyword or photograph type and optionally a locality or mineral name. If you are just looking for photos of a mineral or from a location, the photo gallery links on the mineral and locality pages are easier to use.

Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia, China

A novelty at St. Marie 2012. Group of crystals of Löllingite, very well defined for the species, with polycrystalline growths, very bright, and with some radial, not epitactic, small dipyramidal crystals of Arsenopyrite on the surface of their faces. They are on matrix, with Calcite and Magnetite. Both the Löllingite and Arsenopyrite have been analyzed.

Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia, China

Dimensions: 8.4 cm x 6.1 cm x 6.1 cm

8.4 x 6.1 x 6.1 cm. A rare combination piece with fluorite growing off aesthetic, large lollingite crystals. The lollingites (a species related to arsenopyrite) from this mine are being hailed as best of species material. Spear shaped, lustrous, silvery crystals to 7.9 cm in length host a complex, glassy and gemmy, colorless fluorite crystal (2.5 cm in length). From recent finds of spring 2012. Unlike most such pieces found this has dramatic 3-dimensional aesthetics and clearly shows the bladed crystals standing up.

Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia, China

Dimensions: 10.6 cm x 8.5 cm x 7.4 cm

10.6 x 8.5 x 7.4 cm. The lollingites (a species related to arsenopyrite) from this mine are being hailed as best of species material. This piece features spear-shaped, lustrous, silvery crystals to approximately 3 inches, decorated with small quartz crystals. A nice combination specimen from recent finds of mid-2012 (found in April). Unlike most such pieces found this has dramatic 3-dimensional aesthetics and clearly shows the bladed crystals standing up.

A novelty at St. Marie 2012. Crystals of Löllingite, very well defined for the species, with polycrystalline growths, very bright, with clear colorless crystals of Fluorite showing the forms of the dodecahedron, the octahedron and the cube, all them well defined. They are on matrix, with Magnetite. The sample has been analyzed.

A novelty at St. Marie 2012. Group of very bright crystals of Löllingite with polycrystalline growths. They have an extraordinary size for the species and have radial, not epitactic, dipyramidal crystals of Arsenopyrite on the surfaces of their faces. They are on matrix, with Calcite, Fluorite and Magnetite. Both the Löllingite and Arsenopyrite have been analyzed.
