# WOL-10, $360.00 Sold! *A*
Dims: 5.29x2.31x1.38in (13.45x5.88x3.50cm) .... Wt: 30.5oz (864g) .... Loc: Yiagangxia, Hunan, China
This is a wonderful specimen of wolframite. While individually straight, the long flat crystals are arrayed in a curve, lending this heavy specimen extra appeal. The crystals are essentially opaque with a resinous luster, but there is an area of cleavage where close examination reveals red fire in the crystal, which must therefore be translucent to some degree.
# WOL-9, $75.00 Sold!
Dims: 1.97x1.18x0.83" (5.0x3.0x2.1cm) .... Wt: 3.48oz (98.4g) .... Loc: Yao Gang Xian Mine, Chen Zhou, Hunan Province, China
This is a nice wolframite specimen, dense, black with a metallic luster, and boasting the striated crystals and typical shapes and terminations of the specie. It also has at least 3 other minerals present, most notably a very nice cubic fluorite crystal perched nicely towards the top of the wolframite, and also a thin druze of arsenopyrite on the opposite side, and a mineral I have not identified is wedged into the wolframite. It is off-white, translucent, and looks like it may be a member of the mica family. The fluorite is transparent and nearly colorless but with a hint of blue, and it has a dusting of black specs dulling its luster.
# WOL-8, $75.00 Sold!
Dims:2.0x1.6x2.0" (5.1x4.1x2.0 cm) . . . .Wt: 2.8oz. (80g) . . . .Loc:Yao Gang Xian Mine, Chen Zhou, Hunan province, China
This specimen consists of a cluster of wolframite crystals with no matrix. These wolframites have basal terminations. The largest crystal measures 1.3x1.1x0.1" (3.3x2.8x0.3cm). there is a small amount of quartz on the sides of the specimen. There is only a couple of tiny chips or nicks on this piece.
# WOL-7, $50.00 Sold!
Dims:2.8x2.4x1.2" (7.1x6.1x3.0 cm) . . . .Wt: 4.7oz. (132g) . . . .Loc:Yao Gang Xian mine, Chenzhou, China
This specimen consists of an intergrown cluster of wolframite crystals growing from a matrix of massive quartz. Several euhedral quartz crystals accompany the wolframites. The wolframite crystals are rudely terminated, but exhibit excellent vertical striations typical for this species. The largest wolframite crystal measures 2.4" (6.1 cm) in length, and the largest quartz crystal measures 1.5" (3.8 cm) in length. This specimen shows only minor damage. One of the quartz crystals is penetrated by a wolframite crystal for an interesting optical effect.
