A particularly good, undamaged and colorful combo from the great finds of Tongbei.

A complex cluster of deep red hoppered and elongated Vanadinite in epitaxial arrangements perched nicely on a base of Barite blades.

Gersdorffite in good or sizable crystals has been super rare until this one small discovery. This is a very fine piece and is the best example we have had from the world class 2014 Bou Azzer find.

A brittle mineral, this has some cracks and chipping on some crystals but overall is in exceptional condition. Sharp crystals to 2.3 CM is quite impressive for this specie.
