Remarkable Graphite Mass
Remarkable Graphite Mass from Ratnapura district, Sri Lanka
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description This is actually a rather remarkable Graphite specimen, due to both its size (and mass at 166 grams) and the preservation of crude crystal habit in the shape. This is a famous locale for so many species of gem crystals, that one can forget it was once also important for samples of native Graphite. Today, one rarely sees them on the market.
Locality Ratnapura district, Sri Lanka
Dimensions 8.0 x 6.4 x 3.8 cm.
Specimen Grade C
