Molybdenite, Moly Hill Mine, La Motte, Quebec

This locality has produced excellent molybdenite crystals in quartz matrix now for many years. The crystals are usually rosettes or flat crystals embedded in quartz that can be grey-glassy to pure white. The Moly Hill mine is a pegmatite that was, in fact, mined for quartz that was used in the smelter at Noranda, Quebec. Here are some very nice specimens!
