Epidote -Classic US locality
stock #10.1-480
Green Monster Mountain, Prince of Wales Island, Prince of Wales Island
Alaska, United States
5 x 2.5 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $280


A single, deep green crystal of Epidote from Prince of Wales Island. The termination shows the multiple steps that are typical of some from the Green Monster Mountain deposit. The crystal is crudely terminated on the base as well, not many doubly terminated prisms are seen. This piece was obtained by the previous owner from Shortmanns Minerals shop in Easthampton, Massachusetts. They worked closely with Ed Over and Arthur Montgomery selling many of their finds, and they were active on Green Monster. Sadly there is no documentation this is one of their pieces but it is a very nice example from this legendary locality.

A choice tabular habit Epidote from the legendary finds at Green Monster Mountain in Alaska, USA. The Epidote is a complete textbook form crystal and quite lustrous. Deep green to brownish yellow hues nicely contrast with the clear colorless Quartz so the specimen stands out well. A fine specimen from the short list of great classic US locales.

In fine condition, the crystals show textbook typical modifications and have a rich purple-red color. A classic US location.

Winter 2016-17

A fine classic Epidote from Green Monster that was collected by Ed Over, formerly in the Warren Johansson collection. From the legendary find by Over more than 70 years ago, this has fine doubly terminated Epidote crystals over 4 CM in size. Nicely sprinkled with Quartz crystals some of which have green Epidote inclusions. In excellent condition, a very choice specimen that is more impressive in person.

Green Monster Mountain, Prince of Wales Island, Prince of Wales Island
Alaska, United States
4.2 x 3.5 CM (miniature)

A small but very pretty Alaskan Epidote. The largest crystal is 3.2 CM long, glassy bright and decorated with quartz crystals. There is contacting on the perimeter and rear of the specimen but the main crystals are sharp and undamaged. A nice, affordable example of an American classic.are
Almandine (Garnet) on Schist
stock #10.1-337
Wrangell Garnet mine, Petersburg District,Wrangell Petersburg District
Alaska, United States
9.8 x 7.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $250


From a classic US locality this is a very fine example of highly lustrous Almandines in a good sized plate of Schist. This was once a prolific locale but little to nothing is seen now. The largest crystal is 2.3 CM. With strong lighting the deep rich red color is seen but at first glance these are dark, almost black. Excellent form and contrast, there is some contacting and edge chipping (probably a result of in-situ events, and not "mishandling") This is still a very displayable specimen with much better quality than is typical.
