BOURNONITE FROM CHINA

Fifteen to twenty years ago bournonite specimens from China were readily available, yet quite expensive. The Yaogangxian Mine was producing fine specimens then, some worth up to $1 million. Bournonite is an uncommon (there are only 138 photos of bournonite from China listed on Mindat.org) sulfosalt mineral, with the formula: PbCuSbS3. Bournonite crystals are commonly complexly twinned, resulting in complex clusters of parallel twinned crystals, with parallel crystal faces, and if cyclic-twinned will exhibit the classic "cog wheel" habit.

The bournonite specimens below are from a stash that was collected in China around the 2000, and have not seen the light of day since they were collected. This is a rare opportunity to acquire this uncommon mineral in large crystals and at discounted prices compared to 15 years ago.
