Global Airmail/Standard Flat Rate Shipping Service SPECIMEN DESCRIPTION:
This is NEW
FIND - an eye-catching, specimen of REALGAR on calcite from the
SHI MEN MINE, HUNAN, CHINA. The realgar is a rich, FIRE-ENGINE
RED, contrasting nicely with the CLEAR CALCITE CRYSTALS on the
matrix. The overall impresssion created by the piece is very
dramatic - it has a VERY STRONG PRESENCE, and because of the
intense color will draw the eye even when displayed with a host
of other fine specimens.Realgar is an oddball among the
sulfides. It is one of only a few sulfides that are not metallic
or opaque or blandly colored. Its structure is analogous to that
of sulfur and resembles sulfur in most respects except for color
(the name "ruby sulfur" has been applied to realgar). Sulfur has
a structure composed of 8 sulfur atoms linked in a ring.
Realgar's structure alternates between sulfur atoms and arsenic
atoms producing rings of As4S4. The arsenic atoms affect the
structure altering it from sulfur's orthorhombic symmetry to
realgar's monoclinic symmetry.
Realgar occurs in hydrothermal veins with valuable metal sulfide ores and its bright red color can be an aid to prospectors. It also can be found in hot spring deposits and as a volcanic sublimate product (crystallizing from vapors). Realgar gets its name from the Arabic words for "powder of the mine" (rahj al ghar). Realgar is famous for some wonderfully beautiful specimens. Some specimens can have a deep ruby red color with an amazing clarity and a high luster. The color of realgar is truly something to appreciate and cherish.
