Epidote -Classic US locality
stock #10.1-480
Green Monster Mountain, Prince of Wales Island, Prince of Wales Island
Alaska, United States
5 x 2.5 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $280


A single, deep green crystal of Epidote from Prince of Wales Island. The termination shows the multiple steps that are typical of some from the Green Monster Mountain deposit. The crystal is crudely terminated on the base as well, not many doubly terminated prisms are seen. This piece was obtained by the previous owner from Shortmanns Minerals shop in Easthampton, Massachusetts. They worked closely with Ed Over and Arthur Montgomery selling many of their finds, and they were active on Green Monster. Sadly there is no documentation this is one of their pieces but it is a very nice example from this legendary locality.
Lepidolite on Clevlandite
stock #16.1-569
Virgem do Lapa
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5 x 4.1 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $130


An unusual yet attractive Lepidolite, with color and form that is not at all typical. From the great Pegmatite deposits of Virgem da Lapa, ex. Leoben collection. The Lepidolites are in thin stacks of diverging crystals in clusters having a Orange to Pink color. The matrix is white to colorless Clevelandite in crystals and massive plates. Lepidolite is one of the most attractive Mica minerals often taking many diverse forms and vibrant colors. A choice miniature.
SOLD Apophyllite
stock #SOLD 18-AX-7-080 (650)
Pannan District
Maharashtra, India
4.9 x 4.4 x 4.5 CM (miniature)
price: $110


Pointed terminations on clear green Apophyllite that sits on snowlike Heulandite crystals. Choice, undamaged and colorful, good Indian Zeolites are perhaps the most attractive yet affordable minerals in the world. Ex. Larry White collection. Larry had great taste and took great care to select clean, perfect examples for his collection. This is a nice example of the HQLP (High Quality, Low Price) concept.
Azurite- spherical nodule with radiating crystals
stock #18-AX-7-061-(1067)
Daye Copper Mine, Huangshi Prefecture
Hubei, China
2.6 x 2.2 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $480


A perfect 360 degree ball of crystallized Azurite from the ancient mining area of Daye, China. A top thumbnail with beautiful form and simple esthetics. In incredible condition with no damage seen by naked eye or 10X magnification. Ex Larry White collection, he obtained this in 2004 when these were more available. They are now uncommon and never in this quality. We know of a few larger specimens but never quite so perfect and complete.
Diopside -Classic gem crystal with Tremolite
stock #19.1-356
DeKalb, St Lawrence Co.
New York, United States
3.6 x 1.5 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575


A fine old DeKalb, New York Diopside crystal with exceptional transparency and color. This has a "crown" of altered Tremolite that adds a nice accent. These encrustations were usually removed by mechanical means but this is still intact and I think gives an nice touch to the crystal. Some typical contacting on the rear and one side, overall the condition is excellent with far better than usual luster.
Spessartine on Quartz
stock #19.1-358
Shengus (Shingus) Haramoush Mts. Skardu District
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
3.2 x 2.5 x 1.7 CM (thumbnail)
price: $390


Super esthetic, an outstanding thumbnail of etched Spessartine showing fine geometric forms. Dark red translucent Garnet with some color zoning on edges. The front display side is in excellent undamaged condition, the back side has contacts with recrystallization so is less distinct. The Garnet faces are showing growth structures which are especially clean and attractive. Similar to the well known Brazilian Spessartine from Navegadora, this is unusual for a Pakistani Garnet. Choice.
Elbaite on Quartz
stock #19.1-357
Paprok, Kamdesh District
Nuristan, Afghanistan
3.3 x 1.9 x .9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $120


A cute thumbnail featuring a zoned Elbaite crystal 2.3 CM long. Complete, undamaged and terminated, the color is a mint pastel green. With strong magnification a tiny Hambergite crystal is seen on one face of the Tourmaline.
Skeletal Galena -hoppered epitaxial forms
stock #19.1-355
Ninth of September mine, Madan, Rhodope Mountains
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
3.2 x 3.1 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $380


An incredible geometric maze made with interlocked stepped cubic crystal structures. A super thumbnail or toenail (it will fit in a TN box) from a 2018 find at the September Ninth Mine in Madan. This one shows intricate examples of epitaxial growth, hoppering and cubic stacking. This small find produced what may be the best ever hoppered skeletal Galena crystals. This is even more impressive in person, and displays well from most any angle. This specimen has some associated Sphalerite that acts a small matrix and gives contrast for the metallic Galena.
