Franklin, Sussex County, New Jersey, United States of America
Size Range: 
Cabinet (10-18 cm)
12.5 × 9 × 6 cm

This is a large and very rich example of norbergite from a quarry known for exceptionally brightly fluorescent specimens of this mineral. It is a very heavy specimen – and therefore expensive to ship. But if you like spectacular and unusual fluorescents, I think it will be worth it. Note: To my eye, the UV response seems deeper yellow than what is shown in the photos. (It is very difficult to get proper color balance on UV photos.)

Weight 27.7 oz.). Within the US, this item will be sent in a medium flat rate priority box – and could be combined with whatever else will fit. Outside the US, it will be sent in a large “safe” box with shipping weight about 38 oz. Probably this item could be sent in a smaller box with shipping weight 32 oz for about $2.50 less. But there would be less packing protection. While the specimen is massive – there are no delicate crystals to break – conceivably it could split into smaller fragments along calcite cleavage planes if there is very rough handling. I think that is a remote possibility, but I have priced the postage according to the larger, more padded box. If you prefer the smaller box, just let me know and I will adjust the invoice (or issue a refund for the difference).

Seller's terms and conditions

In addition to the standard terms and conditions, please note the following. Almost all IDs are visual. While in most cases the ID is obvious, there may be cases where it is not. If you are doubtful about a particular ID, please ask for more information. Or do not bid! Similarly, if you are not sure that the specimen meets your criteria, do not bid. I have tdone the best I can with the photos. Nevertheless, if you are not happy with a specimen for any reason, I will refund the bid price – but not the shipping costs (unless the fault is clearly mine) – if the specimen is returned. This policy applies even if analysis of the specimen shows that my ID was incorrect. When in doubt, ask - or don’t bid. Note that most crystals at MSH and Varennes are micros - even if on large specimens. Please pay attention to the stated sizes. Any customs duties, fees etc. are the responsibility of the buyer.
