Cuspidine with VesuvianiteHuanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China 4.2cm x 4.1cm x 2.9cm
Description/Interesting Notes: An extraordinary example of this rare species from Inner Mongolia!!! This specimen came from a very small, one time find in 2012 that produced just a handful of these amazing specimens that set a new standard for the species!!! This specimen hosts a group of sh...arp, lustrous cuspidine crystals on a matrix of very dark green vesuvianite crystals!!! The cuspidine crystals are present as complex, translucent white to very pale lavender crystals that exhibit blocky forms with somewhat complex terminations comprised of numerous parallel structures!!! The crystals range in size to 1.7cm (which is one of the larger crystals from the find)!!! This is an important example of this rare material - this particular specimen is one of the finest examples from the find and is WAAAAY better than the pics show (the crystals are much more sharp, lustrous, and translucent than the pics show)!!! The vesuvianite is present as juxtaposed prismatic crystals with sharp, lustrous faces and very dark green color!!! This small but significant find produced only a very few specimens and they were all privately sold almost immediately!!! Very few collectors even know that these incredible cuspidine specimens exist!!! I was lucky enough to acquire this one - don't want to miss out on this rare opportunity - you may never see another one!!! The pics hardly do it justice!!! Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!!Good luck and be sure to check out my other exciting mineral auctions on ebay!!!
