Bertierite w. Stibnite
stock #18-AX-12-320
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
15.7 x 6.2 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1700
Spring 2019

A super, large display specimen of a specie that is not often considered as a display-worthy mineral! A brushy tree like spray of well defined Berthierite with fine steel- grey color and very bright luster. In perfect condition and good looking on all sides, this is an older piece from the Herja Mine, ex Carter Rich and William Hladysz. This area of Romania produced what are by far the worlds best of the specie and this is a top percentile specimen that is certainly among the very best pieces. Now that the mines are closed this is certainly to be considered a classic. Much better in person.
Semseyite- large crystals with Sphalerite, Sphaerosiderite etc
stock #18-AX-18-197
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
9.1 x 7.8 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $500
Spring update

Very well formed, large (to 4 CM across) rosettes of sharp and lustrous Semseyite in undamaged condition. The matrix is a mix of lustrous black Sphalerites and Sphaerosiderite balls colored by Boulangerite. A few Chalcopyrites sprinkled in add a little extra color. These are the biggest undamaged osettes we have handled, the overall esthetics is very strong and fine for the specie.
Fizelyite w. Semseyite etc Type Locality
stock #16.1-668
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
5.8 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Pre Holiday 2017

An unusually fine, rich and even attractive specimen of well crystallized Fizelyite. A rare Silver and Lead sulfosalt that is most often a "black ugly", this specimen is quite appealing. This has very bright luster and sharp form, dense crystal coverage and is associated with some fans of Semsyite on a Sulphide matrix. From the old Finds at Herja / Baia Mare, Romania which is they type locality for the specie. Hard to fine in good specimens this is far above average for quality and condition.
Galena ps after Pyrrhotite -ex Minette Collection
stock #Alec-12-249
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
9.3 x 6.3 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $875
Spring 2017

A killer esthetic pseudomorph that has bright flattened Galenas arranged epitaxially and completely replacing large Pyrrhotite crystals. This was previously in the Minette, Loud and Hladysz collections. This is also the very best example of this unusual replacement I have seen, in excellent undamaged condition and impressive from all sides. The original Pyrrhotite crystals shapes are perfectly preserved and reach to 7.5 CM across.
