Minerals Beginning with "C"

JC11722.  Calcite.  Santa Eulalia Mining District, Aquiles Serdán Municipality, Chihuahua, Mexico.   8 x 12 cm 664g.    $175.00.  Dominating this piece is a slightly hematite colored dog tooth crystal on the right side, it really sets off the piece, there is just enough of the hematite color to give the crystal a pinkish look.   Smaller crystals are obvious on the rest of the piece.   The dog tooth crystal is modified on the back.

JC11476.  Cerussite, malachite.  Mindouli district, Pool department, Republic of the Congo.  6 x 7.8 x 9.3 cm   565g.  $350.00   Here is  a good quality and rarely seen example of Cerussite from the renowned copper district of Mindouli in the Republic of the Congo.   The important aspect of this piece is that it's loaded with dozens of crystals. The crystals meaure up to 2.8 cm with an off-white color and thin prismatic form, and have grown together into what it is commonly referred to a "jackstraw"-shaped group. Most of the crystals are in good shape, however you can see some roughness in places. The reverse side of the piece features a few tiny acicular crystals of green malachite for a nice contrast. This piece came direct in a lot of dioptase specimens from Kimbedi, and stands as one of the finest examples from the locality that I have had to offer.
