Crystallized Bournonite For Sale  - Bournonite Crystals from Yaoganxian Mine in China

Below is a gallery of  Crystallized Bournonite specimens for sale from John Betts - Fine Minerals in New York City, NY. Included in this gallery are bournonite specimens from the famous find many years ago at the Yaoganxian Mine in China. Bournonite is a trithioantimoniate of lead and copper and is categorized as a sulfosalt mineral. Bournonite is most famous for cyclic twinning resulting in the cogwheel habit. To purchase mineral specimens, go to the Online order form.

Below are bournonite specimens acquired last year from Georg Gebhard, the famous mineral collector and authority on Tsumeb. Bournonite from China first appeared on the mineral market in 1989 with erroneous locality information, probably caused by Chinese dealers trying to conceal the true source of the bournonite crystals. After about 4 years it was finally revealed that they originated from the Yaoganxian Mine. Gebhard and other German collectors obtained these in the late 1990s when it was possible for collectors to lease the mine for specimen collecting. Gebhard used these for trading with mineral museums and mineral collectors. The size and quality of these bournonite crystals is exemplary and few are available from other sources these days.
