Parisite-(Ce), Malawi...

Painted in the lead up to the 2012 Joint Australian Mineralogical Societies Seminar in Perth, with the theme being rare earth minerals. Parisite is not something that you pick up out in the bush! This specimen was up for sale in Tucson last year and is a very large specimen for the species. It comes from Mount Malosa in Malawi and was priced at $4,500.

Painted using watercolour and a little gouache on black paper.

The original painting has found a new home.
