Carrolite
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Kambove Mine, Katanga, Democratic Republic of the Congo   <br /><br />2" across <br /><br />This piece is a contact twin with octahedral modifications on the corners. The "backside" of the specimen is contacted against what used to be another crystal. Carrolite of this habit in this size and in this general quality level is uncommon and with the future of privatization of mining properties in the Congo, since private mining companies aggressively discourage mine workers to collect specimens, fine carrolite specimens like this one can only become rarer.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was bought from Gerry Pauley of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia during a visit to his home in 2010. He acquired it from a primary source supplier in Katanga province.   </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Jeff Scovil </p>
