MOLYBDENITE 

Kingsgate, Gough County, New South Wales, Australia

Similar in appearance to graphite, this extremely soft, flexible, silvery mineral is the main ore of molybdenum. It is somewhat fragile and marks paper in much the same way as graphite.


The Kingsgate mining district is now exhausted but it has been a very large molybdenum and bismuth producer in the past, the molybdenite occurring in numerous pipe-like quartz veins. The area has produced some of the finest molybdenite specimens in the world.

It is presented in a plastic display box.
