OKO-329

OKO-329     Smithsonite    Kelly Mine, New Mexico.  Ex.

OKO-331

OKO-331    Pyrolusite pseudo after Manganite    Pinal County, Arizona.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  I believe this is from the Magma Mine, Pinal district in the Pinal Mountains.  Very unusual… I would describe it as pyrolusite and calcite on manganite (maybe an encrustation pseudo).  The manganite crystals dominate and are very fine examples with bright metallic lusters and wonderful form.  It is a domical piece measuring 1.5 x 1.3 x 1 cm.  It is damage free and fully formed, even on the extreme edges.  Mounted in a perky box.  $100
