Almandine -fine crystals on Schist
stock #17.1-019
Granatenkogel North Slope, Gaisberg Valley. Bergurgl, Gurgler Valley, Ot
Tyrol, Austria
6.7 x 5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Pre Holiday 2017

An esthetic, old Garnet specimen with crystals to 2.8 CM in impeccable condition. What sets this piece apart is the rich red color and translucency, which is far better than most. Well presented and exposed in a nice composition. As is often the case with these Austrian classics, there has been a thin layer of clear shellac or varnish applied which stabilized the often crumbly Schist matrix and adds a little luster to the garnets. This is now seen as an undesirable tactic but in the 19th century it was common. This can be removed with Acetone if desired but it is historicaly accurate to keep it as well.
Pyromorphite - Arsenian classic habit
stock #17.1-475
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
4 x 2.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $600
Pre Holiday 2017

This is the wet-look luster that is most desirable from Bunker Hill and the melted type form of the Hexagonal crystals. An esthetic arrangement with well defined three dimensional form. The color is the distinctive bright orange best known from this locale. An American classic.
Pyromorphite -multicolor Arsenian
stock #17.1-476
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.2 x 2.5 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575
Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant wetlook luster and intense color with the melted style crystals make this an impressive piece. There was one significant pocket found decades ago that yielded this unusual habit and brilliant shine. Most of the display face is the rare deep orange red color but there is also bright yellow and green on the display face. The hexagons are distinct yet look to be coated with a melted surface of micro crystals. Striking.
Ludlamite (well crystallized, classic) with Siderite on Quartz
stock #17.1-479
Blackbird Mine, Lemhi County
Idaho, United States
4.4 x 4 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Pre Holiday 2017

Outstanding example of the specie from the old classic Idaho locale of Blackbird mine. These are considered to be the best specimens for the mineral and this one is especially choice. Sharp and gemmy crystals are well exposed and nicely perched on the contrasting matrix. No damage seen even under 20X magnification, the crystals reach up to 1.7 CM, and have fine luster. Micros of Siderite and another mineral are noted on a reddish druzy quartz matrix that sets off the green Ludlamites well.
Pyromorphite -well crystallized yellow
stock #17.1-477
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
5.2 x 3 x 2.7 (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

Bright and very well formed, sharp Pyro crystals in fine condition. The crystals are in free standing sprays on a drusy coated matrix. Very esthetic and lustrous, this is a relatively uncommon color for any Pyromorphite and a nice addition to any suite of the mineral.
Rhodochrosite with Calcite
stock #A-10-845
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
5.7 x 4.5 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $145
Pre Holiday 2017

An old (1960s vintage) and unusual Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia. The Rhodos are bright pink and very gemmy rhombs in small clusters and rosettes. A few white Calcites in rice grain form are sprinkled in and the whole rests on a contrasting greenish matrix that is a cast after what probably were earlier Calcite crystals. In fine condition.
