Item Description

A true classic from the famous Shimen Mine. The Realgars from this locality are considered the finest for the species. This piece features sharp, well-formed, lustrous, gemmy, electric red Realgar crystals measuring up to 1.3 cm, with no matrix. Not completely perfect as there are some contacts, but decent shape overall. You don't see much of these specimens on the market anymore, and if you missed out on them years ago where they were a bit more plentiful on the market, this is a good opportunity to pick one up for a good price. From the collection of Shields Flynn.
