Strengite and Rockbridgeite
Strengite and Rockbridgeite from Leveaniemi Mine, Svappavaara, Sweden
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description A gorgeous miniature with high quality and good relief both - a rare combination. The Strengite (purple) is of extremely high quality and size for the material (to 6 mm). The Rockbridgeite though, is probably even better all things considered as this species is usually just the associated mineral and not so dominant in its own crystallization that it stands out so nicely as here. Ex. Martin Zinn.
Locality Leveaniemi Mine, Svappavaara, Sweden
Dimensions 3.5 x 2.8 x 2.6 cm.
Specimen Grade C
Photograph Robert Lavinsky
