From a new 2018 find at the lesser known Sieroszowice Mine, in Poland, these specimens showed up in Tucson (2018) and are some of the most colorful and certainly aesthetic Halites you'll see from any locality. I've only seen a few other Halite specimens from this mine, and they didn't have color quite like this. The captivating green hue is what immediately draws the eye on this piece. The crystallization is superb for the species with amazingly sharp, lustrous, skeletal cubic faces and gorgeous three-dimensional form. The green hue is caused by inclusions of the very rare copper halide, Tolbachite, which is only found in a few places in the world. I'm told from our source that the material also has small inclusions of sulfur, bitumens and covellite, interestingly enough. Very attractive for the species, so much so that many collectors who ordinarily wouldn't have an interest in Halite have decided to add them to their collections.
