About these Strontianites

These strontianites are from the collection of Franz Lammer (1914-1997), and were collected during the period approximately 1967-1992. Although strontianite is a relatively common mineral, it is difficult to obtain fine collection specimens of sharp crystals. Among the finest ever found are the specimens that came from the magnesite deposit at Oberdorf an der Laming, Styria, Austria, a locality that has produced superb crystals of a few different habits.
