Large stolzite crystal from the Sainte-Lucie mine in Saint-Léger-de-Peyre, near Marvejols, in Lozère. The crystal is 5 cm long!
Stolzite is a rather rare mineral species, a lead tungstate, the mine of Saint Lucia has given the largest known crystals of this mineral, and this one with its 5 cm is in the largest. By its size, a world-class “monster”.
