Item Description

Hetaerolite variety Hydrohetaerolite is the rare hydrated variety of this uncommon Zn-Mn oxide. It is VERY RARE from the mines at renowned Bisbee, known only from the Campbell Mine. Lustrous metallic-gray bubbly botryoids totally cover the 3-dimensional vuggy face of this rich solid rarity. Undoubtedly older material, previously in the W. Simpson Collection; later to the Dennis Mullane Bisbee Collection, with his 1960s to 70s label. $35 was not cheap, then! Probable ID was given us by the folks at teh UA Museum and by Les Presmyk, a noted Arizona specialist. It could be Hetaerolite mixed with Hematite, as well. Very RARE material from the 1900 Level of the Campbell Mine. Valued!?
