Huge Brown Willemite Crystals
Huge Brown Willemite Crystals from Sterling Hill Mine, Ogdensburg, New Jersey
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description At 1600 grams, this is a fairly good-sized, impressively hefty specimen! This piece features blocky Willemite crystals to 7 cm tall, with a few Franklinites perched upon them. They are ensconced in Calcite (fluorescent red) and Rhodonite matrix. The specimen was long on display in the Paterson Museum, which only let it trade out as part of an exchange for some extremely rare and valuable New Jersey pearls from the 1800s...or this never would have left the museum. A superb, impactful specimen. Ex. George Elling.
Locality Sterling Hill Mine, Ogdensburg, New Jersey
Dimensions 16.4 x 10.0 x 8.4 cm
