Amethyst
stock #7 BRAZ 212
Irai, Alto Urugual region
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
12 x 9 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


Two perfect radiating clusters (suns) joined together in an impressive and esthetic piece of glasslike quartz. No damage at all, a fine purple hue that grades to a clear outer edge the piece is fully transparent and glows with even a hint of backlight. Not the typical quality, this is a fine mineral specimen for a fine collection.
Fluorite (large frosted octahedron)
stock #7 AC-134
Huayllapon Mine, Pasto Bueno District
Pallasca Province, Ancash Department, Peru
12.8 x 8.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $650


A large and fine single Octahedron of mint green Fluorite with the very desirable "stipple faced" or melted look on the crystal faces. This Alpine Fluorite is sizable and impressive from a location that has not produced good material for many years. Pasto Bueno Fluorites are quite highly regarded, and and also rather distinctive. This one is in fine shape on the display side but it is cleaved where it was removed on the underside. Displays very well and a bargain for such a large crystal.
Amazonite (microcline)
stock #7 COLO-502
Lake George, Park County
Colorado, United States
6.4x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


A single crystal of the "white stripe" find showing excellent color and form. No damage (except on the base where it was removed) and just a tiny hint of matrix. This is a very good American classic locality and an esthetic crystal.
Pyrite (striated cubes)
stock #7- AC 180
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca district
Dos de Mayo Province, Huanuco Department, Peru
11.8 x 9.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $550


An fine, unusual and well balanced older piece from what has become a very famous mine for great pyrites. This form is not like the material that Huanzala has produced for the past decade, this has sharp slightly modified cubes showing pronounced striations. There are many great forms that Huanzala has produced and some fine suites have been developed to showcase them. This would be a fine addition to such a suite, or for any collection of good esthetic minerals. The cubes are sizable, the largest 6.5 CM. Minimal damage, the main crystals are very clean, there is some chipping and periferal damage on the rear and lower areas, despite that it is still very esthetic and presentable.
Triphane (Spodumene) Large Gem crystal
stock #7 AC -305
Khauraz
Laghman Province, Afghanistan
33.8CM X 4.6CM X 2.6 CM Thick (cabinet /museum)
price: $4500


A HUGE and impressive monster that is doubly terminated, top gem grade yellow triphane. Sharp, glassy lustre and damage free with only some tiny bits of matrix adhearing to the main prism which is over a foot long!. One end has the classic hackly / fibrous termination while the other shows a staggered pair of prismatic tips with some fine growth hillocks. This crystal like all fine gem spodumene is highly dichroic and shows an excellent orange -pink transition on the C axis. The piece has been in a private collection for several years and the color (unlike many) is quite stable. Good triphane has never been plentiful. This one seems to have been from the major find of 99-2000 and I have not seen much new material available over the past few years, and none as large and fine as this. I consider this a very fine display piece that is both reasonably priced and will likely have outstanding investment value
Rutile
stock #7-BW-211
Graves Mt., Lincoln Co.
Georgia, United States
6.8 x 5.4 s 5.0 CM (cabinet)
price: $375


A big, doubly terminated crystal from Americas great Rutile locale, Graves Mt. This shows two distinctly different termination forms and has good luster. There are substantial contacts on the piece some with minor muscovite ( a common occurence here) in the faces, but the large size and unusual form are what makes this piece a good one.
Azurite
stock #7 AZ-117
Copper Queen Mine , Cochise county, Bisbee
Arizona, United States
10x10x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $4000


A superb, classic locality piece with fantastic esthetics and rich color. This is essentially all Azurite with a tiny bit of malachite on the reverse side, and numerous micro crystals several of the classic species the locality is famous for. This specimen is composed of well crystallized Azurite in several habits up to 1 CM in size. This stands without aid and is very 3 dimensional. The condition is exceptional as this example is clearly very old, likely from the heyday of the mine in the later 1800's. Rare to find in this condition and quality !
Fluorapatite on Microcline
stock #7-13-414
Imilchil
Anti-Atlas Mts., Morocco
9 x 7 x7 CM (cabinet)
price: $250


A pinkish matrix of crystalized Microcline is host to many yellow- green crystals of Fluorapatite many of which are doubly terminated. These crystals are a little greener than the classic Mexican Mercado examples and with a very different matrix. This is not a common locality. There are some broken crystals evident.
