    Description

    Siderite with Albite
    Cubanite, Pyrrhotite, Belo Horizonte
    Minas Gerais
    Brazil
    3.45 x 3.07 x 1.49 inches (8.76 x 7.80 x 3.78 cm)

    This smart specimen has sharp bladed Siderite crystals intermixed with white Albite. The Siderite blades are a rich dark yellow-green with incredible luster. Both the Siderite and Albite are "gemmy" making the combination very impressive. This lovely specimen, which is in great condition, once resided in the collection of noted collector and mineral show promoter Martin Zinn. There is an associated collector label which accompanies the Lot, but it is the aesthetics of the piece itself that confirm it is a winner.

    Provenance: Central Coast Collection, Ex. Martin Zinn III Collection

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
