Mineral Specimens From Poland



                                              Zincite (man-made)                                                                                               Barite and Sulfur


Poland sometimes produces mineral specimens... but not often.  The zincite specimens for which it is so well known come from industrial chimneys, not the ground.





OKN-759      Barite and Sulfur     Machow Mine, Tarnobrzeg, Podkarpackie, Poland.  Ex. Harold Dibble collection.  A large plate measuring 12.5 x 11 x 3 cm.  Front side is nicely crystallized by transparent, amber colored barites, and minor yellow sulfur.  Two small spots have a couple smaller barites broken, but are difficult to detect.  In all, the specimen displays very well.  Unusual and attractive piece.  $180







OKN-739         Zincite       from industrial stack deposits, Poland.  A very fine, damage-free floater of this well-known material.  Two generations, the first being exceptionally red and gemmy, elongated, curved surfaced crystals, and the second being balls of more amber colored red crystals.  8.4 x 3.4 x 3 cm.  Very fine piece.  $320








OKJ-102    Zincite    Olkusz, Poland.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning Collection.  This is not a true mineral crystal, it is a zinc kiln smoke stack deposit mineralization.  These have been around for a long time but they are not often seen in crystals this well developed and when they are they tend to be very, very expensive.  This damage free crystal measures 6.3 cm long and is up to 1.1 cm wide.  Primary crystal is deep orange in color and transparent.  There are tiny secondary growth crystals and they are yellow.  Very nice and aesthetic.  $295
