Outstanding large purple Coquimbite crystal set in white Alunogen with dark red crystals of Romerite from recent finds at the Monte Arsiccio Mine in Italy. The Monte Arisiccio Mine is an old iron mine that worked Barite, Pyrite, and iron oxide ore bodies. Along with other uncommon sulfate minerals, this mine has produced what are in my opinion the world's best Coquimbite specimens. The Coquimbite crystal is well formed and 2.2cm in size and has incredibly rich purple coloration that contrasts well against the white Alunogen. These specimens should be kept sealed in plastic bags or boxes or otherwise be kept from high humidity or moisture. This specimen comes mounted in a plastic box.

Purple Coquimbite crystals from recent finds at the Monte Arsiccio Mine in Italy. The Monte Arisiccio Mine is an old iron mine that worked Barite, Pyrite, and iron oxide ore bodies.

This specimen is composed of a 1.5cm single Coquimbite crystal with smaller crystals growing out the front and back faces. These specimens should be kept sealed in plastic bags or boxes or otherwise be kept from high humidity or moisture.

Cluster of well formed purple Coquimbite crystals on matrix from recent finds at the Monte Arsiccio Mine in Italy. The Monte Arisiccio Mine is an old iron mine that worked Barite, Pyrite, and iron oxide ore bodies.

This specimen has Coquimbite crystals to 1.1cm in size that dispaly well atop a small amount of matrix. These specimens should be kept sealed in plastic bags or boxes or otherwise be kept from high humidity or moisture.
