Fine butterscotch yellow crystals both standing and laying on a Calcite/Smithsonite matrix. For this delicate mineral (in thin fragile crystals) it is in exceptional condition. Micro chips exist but are very minor. Very good esthetics.

Hubei, China

An especially attractive specimen from the now famed finds at Hubai. Fine patina and form with the treelike structure perched on crude Chalcocite crystal base. These have been found in many forms in this find but this habit is especially nice and quite rare.

Winter 2016-17

A sweet and esthetic arrangement of crystals on a 5 CM stalk of Aegirine. Found before 1990 formerly in the Mikel collection via Dave Joyce. A nice yet affordable example of why Mt St Hillaire is one of the worlds greatest mineral locales.

Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
4.7 x 3.1 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Winter 2016-17

A sizable twinned crystal of Cerussite dominates a Cerussite matrix from this famed Pyromorphite locality. Silky luster with alternating faces that have a light frosting makes this quite distinctive. The largest prism is 2.8 CM long which is huge for this now classic locale
Legrandite
stock #ALEC-24-140
Ojuela Mine, Level 6, Municipio de Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.2 x 5.2 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Winter 2016-17

A fine and pretty matrix Legrandite with sharp canary yellow crystals protected in a vug. The condition as seen is excellent and undamaged despite the fragility of this rare mineral. While this could be trimmed to a fine thumbnail the larger matrix seems fine to me as is showing many other vugs and associations adding interest. Choice.
