LINARITE SPECIMEN

Linarite is not a common mineral, it is a somewhat rare crystalline mineral that is known among mineral collectors for its unusually intense, pure blue color. Linarite was first described in 1822 by Henry James Brooke , who named the mineral Linares in Spain after its type locality.

ORIGIN : KING ARTHUR MINE, KIRKI, EVROS, THRACE, GREECE

King Arthur mine is a small-scale mine which was operated in the 30’s by an English mining company. King Arthur mine operated from 1936 to 1940 and after closing it was forgotten and "lost" in the forested hills.


Here is a wonderful example of well crystalized rich blue Linarite crystals on one side, and a Linarite crust along with green Malachite on the other side of the specimen. Specimen is very interesting under magnification as there are numerous features to explore, view the well formed Linarite crystals close up. Although crystals are obvious to the naked eye, specimen requires magnification in order to fully enjoy the range of interesting structures. Linarite from this locality is considered to be very rare because not only hardly any of this material is available on the market (google search) but also because the small mine is hard to find “lost” in the heavily forested hills. With a partly collapsed entrance and the main tunnel full of water, mining activity is extremely rare. Highest bidder will not be disappointed. Will be a delightful addition to any mineral or rock collection. Do not miss this opportunity.
