FATA Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan
13.6 x 6.5 (cabinet)

Sharp fadden quartz with large single crystal rising out of a "haystack" base of quartz. Few specimens of this size are undamaged. This is in perfect condition and display well from any side.

Katanga, Central Area, Katanga Copper zone
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
4.2 x4.0 CM (miniature)
price: $440
Spring 2013

Sharp, gemmy crystal cluster perched on matrix. The largest crystal is 1.5 CM across these glow bright red when backlit, shown here in "normal" lighting. A quite esthetic and pretty small specimen of a classic find.
Brazilianite (on albite)
stock #12.1-124
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.4 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


A clean, bright, sharp and colorful specimen of clustered gemmy Brazilianites on a tiny shard of Albite matrix. The crystals reach 3.5 CM and are in fine condition. From 2009 finds in Linopolis, this is far above average and has a great esthetic, but at an affordable price.
Ebaite (Rubellite) on Quartz
stock #AC-362
Pala, San Diego Co.
California, United States
6.1 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $2400


A FINE classic American Tourmaline specimen, Ex Frank Hess collection. Undamaged, unrepaired, doubly terminated Elbaite (3.5 CM) is penetrating the termination of a compound quartz crystal. A small green zone is visible at one termination but mostly this is just fine raspberry hue. This specimen dates from pre 1950 Pala area finds, it was sold by Schortmann's minerals but no mine attribution is given, it may have been from any of several small prospects or one of the more famous mines. Classic form and far better than average quality and esthetics for a fine San Diego pegmatite specimen!
Andorite (exceptional large crystals) with Zinkenite
stock #7-BOL-199
San Jose Mine, Oruro
Oruro Department, Bolivia
4.7 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $700


A fine and attractive example of this rare Lead, Silver, Antimony "black ugly" mineral! Until the 2004 find, Andorites were one of the rarer Sulfosalts and crystals were always quite tiny. This piece is from that discovery and a very good value for the size, condition and form. The metallic luster and steel to brassy hues are as good as these ever get. Ex Kosnar, there are now very few of this caliber to be found, lesser pieces are typically far more expensive!
Elbaite (multicolor gem Tourmaline)
stock #10.1-312
Paprok, Kamdesh District
Nuristan, Afghanistan
5.6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $2650


A very fine and very attractive specimen! Elbaites with vivid color and gem clear quality reach 5.5 CM in a jackstraw cluster. There is practically all tourmaline with no matrix, only a few areas of minor Cleavelandite. The better Paprok Elbaites have become highly respected for distinctive color and glassy faces. This specimen is top tier, it is a rich, sharp, colorful glassy and in outstanding condition.
HOLD Sphalerite (Exceptional large crystals) and Dolomite
stock #HOLD 0249-JM-457
Pelican Mine, Picher, Tri-State District, Ottawa County
Oklahoma, United States
10.9 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $570


An exceptional, well formed Sphalerite from a long gone classic locality. Big, textbook clustered crystals reach 3.6 CM and show elegant twinning. This is far better than most "good" specimens from Tri state, it is admittedly more expensive but a very good value for the price. While this is a "black, ugly" mineral the overall esthetics and luster on this one makes this an remarkable and desirable addition for any collection.
