SOLD Carrolite on Calcite
stock #SOLD 7 AE-101
Kambove Mine, 400 Ft level
Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
4.7 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
A killer matrix miniature sporting superb, mirror bright Carrolites, the largest at about 2 CM and razor sharp. There are a lot of mediocre Carrolite in the market, this is not one! As close to perfect as the species gets, there are minor contacts and micro chipping at some edges but nothing distracting. Well exposed and presented, this is an unrepaired, unrestored and fully natural specimen which is rare since there have been a lot of glued on fakes. There has not been new production of these in recent years and better example like this can stand as the best of the species.
