Barite with Malachite inclusions
stock #21.FC-023
Shangulowe Mine, Kambove District
Lualaba Province, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.1 x 4 x 1.5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $560
Early summer 2021

A fine example of the rare "green Barite" from the Shangulowe Mine (Kabove, DR Congo). This has a main crystal that is over 4 CM across which is huge for this find. The clarity and condition are excellent and the whole displays very well on the contrasting matrix. The brightest green zones are more concentrated on the edges and the overall color is a bluish grey-green. In excellent condition there is no damage to the Barites which at this size is remarkable.

Barite on Malachite
stock #14.1-335
Shangulowe Mine, Kambove District
Lualaba Province, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.7 x 3.1 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $330


A pair of chisel tipped Barite crystals perched on a velvety green Malachite. The Barite crystals have some inclusions of Malachite as well which gives some green color to the milky prism. Classic material from the 1970-80 era, these Barites are unique and are no longer being found. Very good condition and quite attractive, a very unusual association that is a modern classic.
