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.

  • 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.

  • A cavity in the front of this piece of coarse calcite contains several carrollite crystals but one 8mm wide crystal in particular. the cube and octahedron, modified by what appears to be the trisoctahedron. Nice crystal!
