Interesting little Silicon Carbide specimens, available in a range of sizes from small to large.
These pieces are intended for mineral collectors. We cannot guarantee the locale, size, shape, or colours of the piece you will receive, but most of these specimens come from Poland.
While it does occur in nature, these pieces are man-made. It is also known as Carborundum and is widely used in industry, where it is used to make abrasives and high temperature ceramics.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
We sell a few other pieces of Silicon and Silicon Carbide – almost always just rough specimens. Please see our Silicon section for a list of these products, and more information about the stone.
