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.

  • The crystal that is on this matrix has been glued in place and, in fact the specimen has been manufactured. It IS a nice crystal, though, so I thought I'd offer it anyway at a reasonable price.
