Description

Very fine sample of the very rare kuzminite (calomel-kuzminite-series) with calomel (type locality), cinnabar, malachite and native mercury.

All Moschellandsberg specimens in this auction are from the Schlabach collection, all found 1980. They have been analyzed, but printouts of the original analysis cannot be provided. If neccessary I can have new analysis made, which the buyer would have to pay.

Unfortunately I don't have the means to do micro-pictures.
