Description

Exceptional and very rich sample of the extremely rare new mineral (2008) demicheleite-(Br) in well formed reddish black crystals. The mineral is found only in this locality worldwide and it has an unusual chemistry, as it is a bismuth sulphide bromide. Of the about 3800 minerals known only 18 have bromine in its composition!. The mineral is even rarer than demicheleite-(Cl). Very nice under the microscope !. Note.- Shipping costs are intended for Certified Mail. If you prefer the cheaper ordinary mail, please ask.
