Bright purplish-pink color dominates this small cabinet specimen with several spherical groups of Smithsonite crystals on a Sulphide matrix. In contrast there are several Cerussites some twinned and in fine condition as well. Most Tsumeb Cobaltoan Smithsonite is a rather pale pink color this is really deep strong color, electric and impressive.

A super fine gemmy group of Wulfenite crystals with several habits on a complex, altered matrix. The specimen has many micro crystals that are not identified and a small zone of the rare Leiteite. Highly lustrous and quite esthetic with a deep cognac color. In excellent condition, ex Charles Noll collection.
Pyromorphite- Arsenian type

Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
7.2 x 3.2 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Pre Holiday 2017

An excellent Pyromorphite in fine condition from the now classic Bunker Hill mine. Excellent color with both bright yellow and orange zones. Two generations of crystals are present most with wet look luster. Sharp hexagonal barrel type crystals to nearly 2 CM are the first generation, some are hoppered but most have flat terminations. The last generation of sparkling micro crystals on top adds a nice touch. Better in person this can be displayed from almost any angle.
HOLD Alamosite- rare xl rosette with Wulfenite and Mottramite
stock #HOLD 16.1-440-CN3975
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
7.8 x 4.8 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Pre Holiday 2017

A very rare specie from Mina Ojuela ex Charles Noll, Crawford and Seaman Museum. etc. A transparent white crystal spray sits nestled in a mossy green matrix of Mottramite and characteristic Ojuela blocky Wulfenite. Better known from Tsumeb where it is one of the rarities sought much sought after, however the type locale for this mineral is in Alamos, Mexico.
Apatite -CaF (Fluorapatite)
stock #8.1-458A
Cerro de Mercado, Victoria de Durango
Durango, Mexico
4.9 x 3.5 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $150
Pre Holiday 2017

An older Apatite from Cerro de Mercado that presents a fine 3.5 CM gemmy crystal well exposed on matrix. This locale was a prolific source of these Apatites although most were much less clear than this and few on matrix. Rich yellow-green (asparagus) color. A choice piece in good condition that looks better in person. One old rehealed break is seen in the main crystal. A nice example.
Metastibnite, Klebelsbergite, Peretaite, Valentinite, Sulphur, etc
stock #17.1-284
Pereta Mine, Pereta, Scanbsano, Grosetto Province
Tuscany, Italy
7.5 x 5.5 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Pre Holiday 2017

An old Italian specimen that is loaded with several well crystallized rarities. Included older labels have misidentified the Metastibnite as Kermesite which it does indeed look like. Aside from that, this hosts well developed crystals of Klebelsbergite in several forms, Peretaite, Sulphur, Stibnite, Valentinite and possibly Ottensite and Minyulite. A real treat under the microscope, but the largest metastibnite crystal is 2.8 CM and needs no magnification.
Grossular Var Hessonite w. Clinoclore etc.
stock #17.1-003
Monte Argentea, Arenzana, Genova
Liguria, Italy
4.9 x 4.2 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Pre Holiday 2017

A very good matrix Garnet specimen with the classic style of Piedmont region Grossular. The crystals are sharp and translucent- a deep red when backlit but with normal lighting (as in these photos) typically look darker, almost black. In excellent condition a very good locality piece with bright luster.
Scheelite on Quartz
stock #17.1-AXA-30-064
Skardu District
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
6.4 x 4.4 x 3.5 (cabinet)
price: $720
Pre Holiday 2017

A choice specimen with a single doubly terminated Scheelite nicely perched on contrasting clear Quartz crystals. The Scheelite is quite sharp, gemmy and richly colored. A few small Quartz at the edges are broken but the Scheelite and most Quartz are in perfect condition damage wise. This is from a find in Pakistan over 5 years ago that was briefly big mineral news. The find was small and the specimens have all disappeared. The Scheelte is very well presented- it sits well up on the matrix and has excellent contrast. Even better in person.
