Manganite from Ilfeld, Harz Mts., Thuringia, Germany [db_pics/pics/b624a.jpg] Manganite from Ilfeld, Harz Mts., Thuringia, Germany [db_pics/pics/b624b.jpg] Manganite from Ilfeld, Harz Mts., Thuringia, Germany [db_pics/pics/b624c.jpg]

Not your typical druse of Manganite crystals. This specien features a lustrous, metallic, jet-black, striated, manganite crystal of 1.8 cm rising out of an open vug. The vug is set in massive crystalline manganite lined with a bit of barite for contrast. These old Ilfeld Manganites are regarded as the world's best for species and came out in late 1800s.

Azurite with Malachite from Anhui Province, China [db_pics/pics/b560a.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Anhui Province, China [db_pics/pics/b560b.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Anhui Province, China [db_pics/pics/b560c.jpg]

Shockingly bright, electric blue Azurite crystals lining a large, shallow vug. The color is a more dark, vibrant royal blue than the photos indicate. The photos also don't capture the bright reflections of the crystals - they look like blue foil. These are so incredibly bright I had to take a second look to make sure they weren't Linarite or some other species. I've never Azurite seen like this before, though I have heard Bisbee produced similar Azurites to this at one time. The backside is sawn revealing another small vug containing typical, darker blue Azurite crystals. If you want to add a large amount of bright blue to your case, this is the one.
