Carrollite, Kamoya II Mine, Kamoya, Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo

The carrollite crystals that come from the Democratic Republic of Congo are certainly the best in existance. This copper-cobalt sulphide is one of my favourite minerals. The bright silvery colour and mirror-like faces with interesting striations show superb examples of isometric crystal forms. Here are some very nice and affordable examples of the species.

  • This space between several crystals of calcite has a number of carrollite crystals in it from tiny up to a 12mm half crystal. The carrollites are notable since they show only the octahedron form.

  • A lustrous, well formed crystal of carrollite is perfectly exposed at the edge of a tight vug in calcite. Some chalcopyrite associated. The carrollite crystal does have some fractures but, as you can see, they do not distract from the displayability of the specimen.
