Autunite -Fine crystals from type locale
stock #9.1-039
Les Odoux, near Autun
, France
8.5 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100

A bright, attractive and well crystallized French example from the area that gave Autunite its name. Distinctly different from the well known Spakane Washington Autunites, these are much more rare. Fine lemon-yellow to green crystals and sprays cover much of the flat matrix with individuals reaching over 8MM. Brilliant FL of course. This matrix is exceptionally fragile so we will need to make special shipping or delivery arrangements for this piece. Ex collection of Ernie Schlicter.

Viloca Mine (Araca Mine)

A very fine, esthetic and pristine example with very well formed twinned prismatic crystal. These are well positioned and free standing with excellent luster. Individual prism reach 2CM and the matrix is well crystallized arsenopyrite for a nice contrast. Nearly all Viloco Cassiterite comes out damaged, this large piece is a rarity as there is only very minor chipping at a a few edges that are not obvious, it is virtually pristine. Displays well from many angles.
