  • A rich specimen of cobalt and nickel arsenides with lots of zones of erythrite and annabergite laced throughout. The erythrite occurs in open areas and has tiny crystals while the annabergite is massive and fills the voids. Old surface mineralization! Sorry, the tag does not state the exact location.

  • The tag accompanying this specimen notes that it is a specimen of "Smaltite". Smaltite was the word used for cobalt arsenide in the old days. Eventually, they figured out that it is actually a mixture of cobalt arsenides and not a single mineral. I actually don't know what this specimen is made of but from observation, it appears to be a mixture of different cobalt arsenides. "Smaltite" from a great old mine!
