Senarmontite - type locality

Djebel Hammimat Mine, Ain Babouche District
Oum el Bouaghi Province, Algeria
1.8 x 1.6 x 1.5 CM largest (thumbnail)

A pair of sharp and very large Senarmontite crystals with classic form from the type locality. This rare Antimony Oxide was found sporadically between 1850 to 1950 at this locality by the French Geological exploration group BRGM. These remain as the best and largest crystals of this specie. These crystals are far larger than average at this locale and are well-defined. Worldwide Senarmontite is found in just a few other Antimony deposits, usually as micro-sized octahedra not often much larger than 1-2MM. Very fine for the specie and not often available, Ex Paul Sainfeld and Tunisian Geological Service collections.
