Grossular
stock #ALEC-30-031
Eden Mills Quarries, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
6.1 x 5 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $780
Post Tucson 2015

A classic, showy specimen of excellent glassy Grossular nestled in a contrasting Calcite from the so called "Eden Mills" locale (Lowell) in Vermont. The Garnets are shiny, translucent and have good color. In fine condition, there are some very tiny contacts but no damage is noted even with 20X magnification. Great luster, this specimen was in several fine collections including Fr. Thomas Fitzpatrick's. Very few of these specimens come to market and are quite sought after.
Hematite
stock #ALEC-22-270
Ziller Valley, North Tyrol
Tyrol, Austria
6.6 x 3.9 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $270
Post Tucson 2015

An Alpine classic, sharp and lustrous rosettes of Hematite scattered on a matrix that is also covered with tiny Adularia crystals. Micros of Epidote are seen as well, the specimen is really all about the roses. Excellent luster and silvery black color this Tyrolian (Austria) piece looks just like a Swiss specimen.
Mimetite
stock #17.1- AX-21-005
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.3 x 4.4 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1700
Post Tucson 2015

An exceptional, undamaged, wet look Mimetite with great color and form. From the 2012 find at Mina Ojuela, showing the elongated botryoidal look unique to this discovery. These specimens are now considered equal to or better than the old find at San Pedro Corralitos, which are very sought after and prized. Destined to become classics, the find is exhausted. Fantastic esthetics, better in person!
Roselite & Calcite (Cobaltoan) w. Goethite
stock #15.1-297
Aghbar Mine,Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Quarzazate Province
Souss-Massa-Draa region, Ouarzazate Province, Tazenakht, Morocco
6 x 3.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $580
Post Tucson 2015

Large deep purple-red crystals of Rosellite in a vug decorated with fine Cobaltoan Calcites as accents. Well composed and showy, the biggest crystals are 1.4 CM which is huge for the specie. In perfect condition inside the vug, outside a thin rim of chipping is noted where this was removed. Very strong display impact for the size.
Grossular on Diopside and Calcite
stock #ALEC-20-156
Eden Mills Quarries, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
6.7 x 6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100
Post Tucson 2015

A very special and undamaged Grossular with bright luster and red brown color nicely perched on a complex crystallized matrix. An American classic locale, the so called "Eden Mills" area is usually the Lowell Quarry or the "C" pit, both of Lamoille County, Vermont. The locations are long closed and good specimens are rare. This one is fine and unusual as the matrix has 3 habits of clear calcite crystals nestled in etched Diopside crystals. This particular assemblage is quite uncommon. Several smaller Grossular are present with the largest 1.8 CM across. Good Lowell area specimens are highly sought after and treasured. Few are available and even average specimens are now rather expensive, really good ones are very rare and commensurately priced.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-516
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2 x 1 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Post Tucson 2015

Esthetic bi-color Vesuvianite with excellent luster. In fine condition and much better in person, from the world s best locality for Vesuvianite, the great Jeffrey mine. These are modern classics and the mine is now gone forever. Once common, this quality level has become quite rare and often very expensive.
SOLD Mimetite with Calcite
stock #SOLD 16.1-035
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.2 x 6.1 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Post Tucson 2015

From a find over 40 years ago, this is an esthetic specimen showing perfect orange balls of Mimetite reaching 8mm scattered on matrix. The Calcite crystals are in several habits and add a nice sparkle for contrast. Not much resembling this was ever found and these are just not available. In fine condition.
Pyromorphite with Wulfenite (rare at this locale)
stock #A7-546-414
Sherman Mine, Burke, Coeurd'Alene District, Shoshone Co.
Idaho, United States
5.8 x 5.1 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Post Tucson 2015

A very delicate Sherman Mine Pyromorphite, crystallized on all sides with individuals reaching 1 CM. Micro crystals of bright red prismatic gemmy Wulfenite are scattered over the specimen (best seen on the 4th photo in the series). Although small I am informed that this is a great rarity for Idaho, one find vintage 1970's. In very good condition the only damage is found with magnification and is limited to edge crystals not seen by naked eye. Most of the matrix is filled with large vugs presenting dense clusters of elongated crystals having both hollow and pointed tips. Nice yellow to green hues and good luster, ex Larry White collection obtained in 1976. The Pyros from here are now very hard to find in any quality, the Wulfenite is a great rare bonus.
