Apatite (Fluorapatite)
stock #16.1-283
Sapo Mine, Goiabeira
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.3 x 3.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Winter 2016-17

Bi-colored and very lustrous Apatites are clustered in a stacked grouping that is a perfect floater (crystallized all around). No damage and displayable from any angle, this 2010 vintage Sapo mine piece is similar in form to some Alpine cleft type specimens. Sapo has produced many interesting and attractive habits and colors over the years, this is quite distinctive and more impressive in person.
Brazilianite with Muscovite
stock #7.1-023
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.1 x 3 x 2.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $525
Fall 2015

Another Brazillian classic. This features a fine sharp, glassy and partly gemmy Brazilianite that is nicely paired with Muscovite showing twin crystal forms. In great condition, the specimen displays very well from several sides. From the major pockets found in 2008, this quality is not being found now. There have been two major finds of fine Brazilianite in the past 70 years, both were different in habit, it may be a long while before the next one if ever. A good value for an esthetic and choice specimen.
Titanite v. Sphene
stock #8.wam-004
Capelinha
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.6 x 5.5 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
May 2015

A sharp and "monumental" looking cluster of Titanite in crystals to 3.1 CM. Transparent and with a good green color, some faces are smooth and glass clear and others have micro steps and a more etched look. Unknown inclusions add a little red zoning in a few spots. In very good condition for the specie, esthetic.
SOLD Elbaite on Lepidolite
stock #SOLD Alec 19-320
Urubu Mine, Monte Bello, Itinga, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.5 x 3.7 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Post Tucson 2015

From a find in the late 1990's this is a zoned "catseye" Tourmaline with gem clear green termination. The bottom termination of the main crystal shows the hollow interior with fine fibrous Elbaite that gives the catseye effect. Very attractive and nicely composed the condition is very good, in the photos most of what may look like chipping is small contacts that show some recrystallization. A good value with a main 5.8 cm Tourmaline well presented.
Elbaite -slightly curved crystal
stock #17.1-AX-19-100
Barra do Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.2 x 2.2 x 1.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

A darker bottle green Tourmaline with a subtle curve, color gradation and complete termination. 34.5 Grams in heft, there is an area of fibrous (cats eye) crystal in the curve zone where this crystal has had some natural breaks and rehealing. There is one repair at that point as well. A good, sizable, affordable crystal from a famed locale in good condition as seen.
Elbaite v. Indicolite
stock #17.1-AX-19-320
Pederniera Claim, Sao Jose da Safira, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.8 x .5 x .5 CM (miniature)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

Blue color zoned gem Tourmaline in perfect condition and with fine luster. The body of this is a darker blue that needs backlighting to show up well, the tip is a very transparent light blue that grades darker along the crystal. A very nice "steel blue" crystal from the famed Pederneira claim, these are modern classics and not very common at not stratospheric prices.
Beryl var. Aquamarine
stock #A7-044-1271
Sapucaia do Norte, Galileia Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.6 x .8 x .5 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Post Tucson 2015

A perfect floater etched Beryl crystal with pale green color more evident in person. No damage, the entire surface of this transparent crystal is the fine geometric etched patterns that make this type of Beryl so desirable. Bigger crystals with this degree of perfection are incredibly expensive, this smaller version is relatively affordable.
Rose Quartz
stock #ALEC-10-629
Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.8 x 3.2 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Rose Quartz crystals in a neat bundle from the great finds in Brazil circa 1970. This is mostly just pure crystallized rose Quartz with some inclusions. Fine transparency and minimal damage (micro chips and contacts)that is not easy to see by naked eye. The price reflects the minor imperfections, if you are not a strict perfectionist this is a very good value for the rarest type of crystallized quartz. The crystals reach 2 CM.
