Fluorite -Classic New York cube
stock #18-AX-16-200
Penfiled Quarry, Penfield, Monroe County
New York, United States
3.2 x 2.2 x 3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $650
Spring update

Sharp purple-blue cube of Penfield NY. Fluorite, with both glass clear and lightly frosted faces. A much sought after locality, these few Fluorites are highly prized. Totally transparent and in far above typical condition, this had been in the Francesco Spertini collection since the sixties. With magnification some interesting growth structures can be seen on faces and inside the cube. The display side is clean and damage free but the underside has a cleave and matrix contact. That underside can be seen through the clear crystal but is easily hidden as it is the obvious base or bottom of the crystal. A good value, these are typical very costly when available.
Sphalerite- Gem crystal
stock #18.AX- 161
ZCA Mine number 4, Balmat, Balmat-Edwards District, St. Lawrence, Co.
New York, United States
1.2 x .8 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $110
Spring update

A small, gem clear single crystal of amber colored Sphalerite. Complete and undamaged from the remarkable finds decades ago at the ZCA (Zinc Corp. of America) mine in Balmat, NY. A "textbook quality" crystal, despite the small size this has good eye-catching luster and color.
Dravite- Classic locale
stock #118-AX-30-071
Gouverneur, St. Lawrence County
New York, United States
4.3 x 3.8 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $850
Spring update

A stunning classic Dravite specimen with honey brown lustrous crystals nicely exposed on matrix. Ex Carter Rich and Bill Hladysz, this is in remarkable condition, with only contacts on the back and one side but no damage at all. These old Gouverneur specimens (St Lawrence County, NY) rarely have such sharp form, warm color and strong esthetics.
Fluorite in Dolomite cast
stock #17.1-696-17a
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.1 x 2.8 x 1.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $160
Pre Holiday 2017

A single gem-clear cube of Walworth Fluorite is perched perfectly inside a thin Dolomite cast. Walworth Fluorites are classic but not often available as few are found each year. This is even more unusual as the thin shell or "cup" is an uncommon matrix composed of tiny Dolomte crystals. The Fluorite is clean, undamaged and colorless. This could trim to thumbnail size if desired.
Diopside -Gem crystals, classic locale
stock #Alec-35-034
Calvin Mitchell Prospect, Dekalb, St Lawrence County
New York, United States
5.7 x 4.7 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Pre Holiday 2017

A spray of gemmy green Diopside crystals (to 1.4 CM) stand on a matrix of Quartz from famed Dekalb, NY locale. The Diopsides are undamaged and glassy, terminated and a few show fibrous areas inside. Not often available and usually quite expensive.
Quartz (Herkimer Diamond- Black stem scepter)
stock #17.1-684
Treasure Mountain, Little Falls, Herkimer County
New York, United States
3.6 x 1.8 x 1.3 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $340
Pre Holiday 2017

A Northeastern US mineral legend, the black stemmed scepters of Herkimer are quite rare and despite hundreds of diggers toiling in the hard Dolomite only a few are found every few years. From a recent exceptional pocket this is a perfect example with no damage (extra rare) and doubly terminated (crudely) which is almost unheard of. The black stem is partly deep smoky brown with a few tiny areas of transparency. The top is sharp and glassy and also has dark inclusions some of which are brightly fluorescent. A fine small example of this most uncommon of Herkimer Diamond Quartz!
Fluorite- gemmy cubes on Dolomite.
stock #16.1-585
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.9 x 2.7 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $190
new june 17

A cute small miniature featuring glass clear cubes that are almost colorless but have a tiny hint of blue in some light. The main Fluorite is 1.3 CM across and there is no damage on the specimen. The matrix can be seen perfectly through the crystals. Walworth Fluorites are quite rare on the market and much respected by regional collectors and Fluorite lovers worldwide. From an older collection this is a very good value.
Fluorite on Dolomite
stock #15.1-584
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
4.7 x 3.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Spring 2017

A sharp, remarkably transparent, glassy Fluorite cube is perched on a bed of dolomite crystals. From the near legendary Walworth Quarry, this is an unusually stepped cube in fine condition. A few smaller crystals are also on the same matrix. Colorless but in some light a faint hint of blue is noted.
