Ferberite (rosette) and Quartz etc.
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref.
Hunan Province, China
5.5 x 4.4 x 3.9 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $425
Dec 2018

A 360 degree specimen hosting a delicate cluster of Ferberite crystals pointing in all directions and slender Quartz prisms. Very tiny Muscovite and a few Scheelites are also on the piece as is typical from Yaogangxian where complex multi specie specimens were typical. The longest slender Quartz is 4.2 CM and doubly terminated. Some contacting that is not very noticeable, several terminations are a ragged, complex type that adds some esthetic complexity. Very displayable and a choice piece from the locale.
