Sphalerite

In the Kanjianwan mine they found these excellent Sphalerites. They have very well defined crystal forms and are red (a little darker than the ones from Aliva, Spain). They are accompanied by Quartz and Galena so the overall effect is esthetic and competitive.

Babingtonite

Munich 2005 offered some samples from China that were offered as Manganbabingtonite. We had doubts about the composition so we did simple analysis and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results leave no doubts: they are really Babingtonite. They are exceptional in size, their association with Prehnite and Quartz and their agreeable esthetics.
Once more, China amazes us with something surpassing the best previously known for a species!

Mimetite

During the 2003 Tucson Show the main novelty was, without doubt, the new Chinese Mimetites.
As you can see their quality is exceptional. We selected the more colorful orange ones, leaving from those we saw the more yellowish ones as they are too similar in our opinion of the former Thailand ones. Also we tried to get the more perfect specimens with the nicer and sharper forms.
