Item Description

For a long time, you would see material labeled as Chloanthite, which actually used to be a valid species, but has now been discredited. These specimens are now defined as Nickelskutterudite, which is an approved valid species, and the nickel analogue of Ferroskutterudite and Skutterudite. This is a notably impressive, richly crystallized small cabinet sized specimen of Nickelskutterudite from the historic Schlema area in Saxony featuring a rich coverage of fine sharp, lustrous, bright silvery metallic crystal clusters on matrix. This is rare material that dates back many decades. Valued at $1,000-$1,500 for the impressive size and quality. From the collection of Colin Manlove.
