SOLD Topaz on Smoky Quartz
stock #SOLD 19.1-776
Murzinka Mine,Sarapulka Dist., Sverdlovskaya Oblast, Middle Urals
Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia
5.2 x 3.8 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $0


A cluster of crude Quartz crystals are the base of a single sharp water clear Topaz. A very slight hint of blue is noted in some light but this is nearly colorless. The Quartz is contacted but the Topaz is well terminated. A classic older Russian locality Murzinka has been mined for over 150 years for gem crystals at this famed pegmatite.
Fluorite on needle Quartz
stock #19.1-761
Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
9.7 x 7.8 x 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


The legendary Dalgngorsk deposits occasionally yield a modified cubo-octahedral Fluorite with ice clear windows. These are sometimes sitting on a nest of contrasting opaque slender quartz Tessin habit crystals. This is an choice example of this sort that is far better in person.
Quartz Scepters with Sphalerite, Calcite etc
stock #18-AX-1-378
Verhniy mine, Dalngorsk
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
4.8 x 4.2 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $285


A well proportioned Scepter of Quartz that has a milky phantom in the head sits on a mix of smaller crystals. Overall very esthetic and looks great from all sides, this is in outstanding condition. Vintage 1992-3 from the Verkhnil (Verhniy) Mine at Dalngorsk, this miniature has nice display impact. Ex William Hladysz collection.
Topaz
stock #18-AX-12-226
Sherlova Gora, Adun-Cholon Range, Nerchinsk, Chitinskaya Oblast
Transbaikalia, Russia
3.1 x 2.7 x 2.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $220
Spring 2019

A single transparent Russian Topaz with a very light blue hue. Nice but not perfect, there are contacts on the back and a few small edge nicks but still displays very well. Russian Topaz from Sherlova Gora is a classic, the area was producing Topaz back into the early 1700 era. This has better clarity than typical for the locale.
Quartz - scepter with Cumberland habit
stock #18.1-654
Boron Pit, Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
4.8 x 1.7 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $220
Spring 2019

Sceptered Quartz in excellent undamaged condition with the cap having no prism faces. The shaft of the scepter has several tiny Cumberland habit crystals arranged epitaxially, and which also have a yellow zoning. An attractive Quartz specimen of unusual habit from a find in 2018, this looks great from any side.
Beryl var. Emerald -Classic locale
stock #18-AX-1-384
Malyshevo, Ekaterinburg, Ekaterinburgskaya Oblast
Urals Region, Russia
4.5 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $260
Spring 2019

From this famed old locale in the Urals, a terminated Emerald crystal on matrix with deep green color. A few smaller Emeralds are also present but the main crystal (1.7x 1.5 CM) is dominant on the specimen. The large flat termination face is dusted with a sparkling dusting of Mica that adds some interest as well. The history of the minerals from this region is an incredible story that is still ongoing today.. This is a good representative piece with some edge translucence but not cutting worthy. Not at all a common item in the mineral marketplace, yet quite affordable..
Quartz Scepter showing epitaxy
stock #18.1-655
Boron Pit, Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
4.8 x 2.2 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Spring 2019

A new find from the great Dalnegorsk (this from the Bor pit). Choice sceptered quartz in excellent condition, with no chips or dings that hosts smaller Quartz crystals in epitaxial arrangement. The shaft of the scepter is composed of hundreds of tiny oriented small Quartz crystals stacked in perfect epitaxial alignment. These crystals and the "accessory" crystals are of the Cumberland or "Beta" type with little or no prism faces just two terminations joined. The smaller accessory quartz are also epitaxially oriented and have some inclusions and adhering matter that gives them a yellowish color. Some have called these Citrine but I think this color is simply a result of these inclusions. A few tiny crystals of Hedenbergite are on the base of the shaft as well. A choice, undamaged example and a nice scepter with amazing structure when examined closely.
Calcite - unusual habits with Clinochlore
stock #15.1-589
Nikolaevskly Mine Dal'negorsk
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
8.2 x 4.4 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Spring 2019

A complex older Dalngorsk specimen that displays very well from several angles. These Calcites are gemmy clear and some have sharp mushroom like caps on the terminations of Scalenohedrons. The face details and ice-like etching makes these especially impressive in person. In excellent condition as seen, this is not anything typical and certainly a great addition for any Calcite collection or Dalngorsk suite.
