S20133 - Phosgenite with Galena - $450
Monteponi Mine, Carbonia-Iglesias Province, Sardinia, Italy
Overall Size: 4.2 x 3.5 cm
The Monteponi mine in Sardinia produced exceptional crystals of phosgenite. This high quality, tabular crystal is a good example of irregular outline. Most prominent though is condition, entirely free of chips. A fantastic classic dating back to the latter half of the 19th century, though the mines are much older.
