Description

From a collectors estate. This is a beautiful Nickeloan Magnesite, (Citron or Lemon Chrysoprase), display slab specimen. Polished one side. From near Lenora, Western Australia. Measures 7-1/2" x 5" x 1/2" (191 mm x 127 mm x 38 mm). Weighs 1 lb., 6 ozs. (625 grams). Please contact us with any questions.

This is the actual specimen being sold. Stand Included.

This attractive rock is found in the Eastern Goldfields area of Western Australia in a belt of ultramafic rocks that stretch from Norseman in the south to near Wiluna in the north. It occurs in many of the same locations as that of chrysoprase, most notably Yerilla , Marshall Pool & Goongarrie but in numerous other places as well.

It occurs as veins & plates but also commonly occurs in nodular form, quite often exceeding many tons in weight for a single nodule. Usually the interiors of these large nodules are of lighter colour & porous which makes them unsuitable for gem cutting.

Magnesite is magnesium carbonate and occurs as veins & nodules and is an alteration product of serpentine and other magnesium rich rock types. This is produced by hydrothermal leaching of the magnesium from the serpentine.

Calcium, manganese, cobalt, and nickel may also occur in small amounts.

In Western Australia most magnesite is white, however in certain locations the presence of nickel mineralisation is responsible for the pleasing green colour found in "citron chrysoprase".

Thank you for your interest and Blessed Be!
