#02 / LOLLINGITE & ARSENOPYRITE - China
Locality: Huanggang No. 5 Mine, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China
Size: 5 x 4 x 2.5 cm.
Lollingite, a rare iron arsenide, previously know only as very small crystals, has recently been found as huge crystals in this remote mine complex. These are recognized as the largest and finest Lollingite crystals ever found. This specimen is composed of upright Lollingite crystals about 4 cm tall in a wafer or disk form,
covered withmany very sharp, bright Arsenopyrite crystals to about 0.8 cm. The specimen self stands as shown and is very bright. I find only one small nick on the specimen which detracts little on this superb specimen.
