Richterite with Magnetite
6.3 x 5.4 x 5 CM (cabinet)
A choice and uncommon well-crystalized Richterite from Langban, ex University of Delaware Mineral Museum. Langban is one of the world's greatest mineral localities but not often represented in display collections. This locale is famed for very rare but often unattractive specimens or very tiny crystals. There are a few exceptions like this piece of large and lustrous orange-brown Richterite crystals intermixed with Magnetite crystals. A small amount of fluorescent Calcite is also present but the main event is the Richterites that are over 1.6 CM in size.
