Sulphur (native crystals on Aragonite)
stock #6.2-946
Agrigento, Agrigento province
Sicily, Italy
7.5 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Excellent large zoned yellow crystals to 3 CM size are clustered in a hemispheric arrangement on a thin matrix. Good clarity with gemmy areas and selective frosting on some faces. In excellent condition despite the age and delicacy of this specimen. A very pretty classic specimen, and far better in person.
Pyromorphite
stock #4.2-372
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
7 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


A fine intense green Pyro from the incredible 2001 find at the Daoping Mine. A This has the delicate accicular habit in 2 distinct generations that are sprouting from a large vug. Despite the delicacy of this specimen there is minimal damage (mostly at the outer edges) and it displays very well. A rich wet look luster adds to the visual impact. Daoping Pyros are some of the finest ever found, and still relatively affordable.
Mimetite (green Botryoidal)
stock #10.1-318
Level 13, Potosi Mine, Santa Eulalia
Chihuahua,
6.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Green Balls of rich, heavy Mimetite cover one surface of the gossan matrix. An older piece, pre 1975 and a very nice example of this uncommon style and form. This is similar to the famous bright yellow San Pedros De Corallitos Mimetites but green and wet looking. The balls are also more defined and bigger than the Mina Oujella mimetites. There is some chipping on a few balls but not distracting at all. Quite distinctive.
Epidote (sharp Prismatic form)
stock #12.1-010
Capelinha, Jequitinhouha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.1 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $160


Sharp, bright shining lustre and well composed. The "back" side has a light dusting of secondary epidotes so it is slightly duller, the "front" is just glassy clean and pretty. From a small find that was not typical, these look much better than most Capelinha Epidotes. Very good display and more affordable than other locations.
Epidote (doubly terminated) on Quartz (doubly terminated)
stock #12.1-011
Capelinha, Jequitinhouha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.3 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $120


Real unusual and quite remarkable, a perfect floater! Doubly terminated epidote crystals (largest is 2.4 CM) on a clear quartz 7.3 CM long that is also doubly terminated. Several smaller epidotes penetrate into the quartz and can be seen from all sides. I have never seen any other like this.
Rutile (epitaxial) on Hematite
stock #12.1-013
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A modern classic, these star shaped radial rutile specimens are simply fantastic. When first found in Brazil, these were a huge sensation, the best ever seen. This is a good, small miniature that is far less expensive than larger examples, but still has a good impact. With brilliant luster, this specimen is a textbook example of epitaxy. These were rather plentiful from Brazilian dealers 3 years ago but are now getting scarce.
Hematite (large twinned crystals)
stock #10.1-307
Ouro Preto
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.3 x 4.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $200


A big, bright metallic black complex twin of crystallized Hematite. Displays well from several angles, there is some inevitable chipping and contacts, but these are not distracting. The specimen is very complex and presents many forms with some mirror bright faces and others with very fine striations. These Brazilian Hematites rank well alongside the worlds best and are relatively very affordable.
Vanadinite (exceptional electric red)
stock #12.1-016
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
7.9 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $2100


Among the many average to pretty good Moroccan Vanadinites it is special to find a really superb specimen. Top pieces also command top prices. This one is exceptional, it stands out for esthetics, color, perfect condition and visual impact. It is also far less expensive than usual for this quality. In person, this really sings and blows away other pieces. If you have wanted a superb Vanadinite but were put off by stratospheric prices, take a hard look at this one!
