Pyromorphite- fine hoppered crystals
stock #18.1-AX 27-227
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
3.5 x 2.4 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1550
Spring update

A perfect, top notch Pyromorphite with killer form, top color and luster. This came out of the ground in 2000 one of the first and best ever finds at Daoping. This locality is now rightly regarded as perhaps the best source ever of Pyros worldwide. This top quality and rich color is no longer found and rarely available. A modern classic, damage free with sizable crystals, this is a fine competition grade miniature.
Quartz - Gem smoky crystal included by Schorl Tourmalines
stock #17.1-642
Erongo Mountain, Karibib
Erongo Region, Namibia
11.1 x 4.7 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $850
Spring update

A large gem clear Quartz that is a light smoke brown with coatings and inclusions of Schorl Tourmaline. Complex multi faced sides with ramparts make this a statuesque crystal. In excellent condition the overall look is an alpine type habit. In exceptional undamaged condition a few areas show a coating of Hyalite opal as well. Especially fine and choice for the locale this is far better in person.
Fluorite on Schorl/ Elbaite
stock #17.1-535
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
6.6 x 3.8 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Spring update

A pair of Tourmaline crystals decorated with several globular Fluorites. The Fluorites are included by hairlike Tourmalines that are a light green hue. From The slopes of the Hohenstein Massif in the Erongo, this is a likely a mixture of green Elbaite and Black Schorl Tourmaline. A very unusual arrangement and a nice setting for the transparent Fluorites.
Fluorapatite -purple classic crystals
stock #13.1-306
Mount Rubellite, Hebron, Oxford County
Maine, United States
2.9 x 2.2 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $400
Spring update

An old, somewhat crude cluster of small colorless and larger purple Apatite crystals. The biggest Apatite is 1.8 CM across which is the largest I know of for the locale. From the Mount Rubellite Quarries an old but less famous Maine location for Apatites. Some chipping, crude edges and contacts are noted but the color, huge crystal size and low price help compensate for imperfections.
Apophyllite- classic Virginia locale
stock #AC-402
Fairfax Quarry, Fairfax County
Virginia, United States
5 x 4.6 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $285
Spring update

A rosette like cluster of flat blocky style Apophyllite crystals to 4.5 CM diameter. Glassy and lustroust with pleasing form and in fine condition from an old collection, this is pre 1950 but likely much older. Classic style and locality, this is a choice, esthetic example.
Fluorite on Galena- Classic British
stock #1157-JM-MC-5

Cumberland, Cumbria, England
8.6 x 7.6 X 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Spring update

A choice, very old English specimen with a long provenance. Ex James G. Manchester collection (author Minerals of NY City and its Environs) later in the John Marshall collection. Green clear Fluorite crystals are dusted with tiny sparkling transparent doubly terminated Quartz. Some well formed small Galenas add a nice contrast. In very good condition, most of the main Fluorites are damage free and a very few others have tiny bruises. For the age this is in incredible shape.
Wulfenite- Classic locale, complete single crystal
stock #18.AX-098-(A29)
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
2.1 x 1.8 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160
Spring update

Rich red, lustrous and in very good condition, this is a fine thumbnail from Red cloud that is fully terminated on all sides. Complete crystals like this are quite rare. There are two tiny (under 3 MM) areas of attached matrix that were the points of attachment for this to form from, a near perfect "floater". One tiny contact from another Wulfenite is noted on one side but no chipping or damage. An American classic with textbook form.
Skutterudite -large well defined crystals
stock #18.1-095
Bouismas Mine, Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht
Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
7.7 x 6.7 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $675
Spring update

Bright metalic large crystals in an esthetic cluster well exposed and isolated on matrix. Nearly pure Skutterudite with just a few specks of contrasting white Calcite. Modern classics, Moroccan specimens of this calibre are world class, and by far the best of the specie. Better in person this is a striking piece in hand with sharp definitions.
