    Löllingite with Arsenopyrite
    Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner
    Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia

    From early finds likely dating to 2008-2012, this rare species from the best locality on the planet for it consists of a "flower" of Löllingite, joined by some Arsenopyrite crystals. The sulfide is presented on a custom engraved acrylic base and shows with massive florets of shiny metallic material with excellent form. This is an iconic example and a classic from the famous Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit. A substantial visual appeal is afforded by this stunning piece, which is highly lustrous and naturally artistic in shape. The back of the rock is appealing, and the increasing size of the florets going up the mineral is a bonus.
    Measurements: 4.33 x 3.75 x 2.44 inches (11.00 x 9.52 x 6.20 cm)

    Provenance: Ex. Matt McGill Collection
