Eosphorite on Rose Quartz- ex Richard Gaines
stock #Alec-10-786
Lavra de Ilha, Taquaral, Itinga
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7 x 4.7 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


Delicate sprays of perfect transparent Eosphorite crystals are clustered on crystalline Rose quartz. From the Richard Gaines collection, this is older material from several decades ago. The color contrast and sparkling luster make this often unattractive mineral an attractive display specimen. Even better in person.
Fluorite -Octahedron on Matrix
stock #10.1-296
Turkey Creek, Grant County
New Mexico, United States
4.2 x 3.7 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $350


A perfect, complete and sharp New Mexican Fluorite, ex Marty Zinn. Even though it is not stated on the label this is certainly a Turkey creek specimen. Violet at the corners and green at the core, this rests on a tiny shard of contrasting matrix. This style and quality are never seen on the market now.
Elbaite -Gem crystal, classic find
stock #16.1-220
Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
2.7 x 1.4 x 1.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575


A classic form from a now classic find. The steep termination of this Tourmaline and the blue green color is a textbook type for the Newry "big pocket". Nearly all gem grade, sharp and clear with a slight touch of color zoning. While huge amounts were found in this big strike close to 50 years ago, most was cut for gemstock. This large thumbnail has a few tiny crystals of Lepidolite on one edge. Some tiny rough areas as seen in the photos but for the locality this is in very fine condition.
Copper Pseudomorph after Azurite rosette
stock #15.1-1118-(SM3654)
Copper Rose Mine, Georgetown, Grant County
New Mexico, United States
4 x 2.9 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $320


A fantastic Copper after Azurite rosette that is sharp, very large and quite old. An early Wards label (likely 1900-20) is included and one from the Charles Noll collection as well. This habit and style is unique to this locality and this specimen perfectly preserves the form of the Azurite crystals and the rose shaped cluster they grew in. Nice patina and in perfect condition.
Kolwezite with Spherocobaltite and /or Cobaltoan Dolomite
stock #Alec 12-257
Kolwezi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
7.8 x 6 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $480


Bright and colorful, this is a very rich specimen of the rare mineral Kolwezite. Original labels list Spherocobaltite as well, this is hard to confirm visually, there is certainly lots of Cobaltoan Dolomite present which can look somewhat similar. In excellent condition, formerly in the Ruth and Andy Palmer rare species collection and the William Hladysz collection as well.
HOLD Olivenite - classic Cornish
stock #HOLD 13.1-087
Wheal Unity, Gwennap
Cornwall, England
6.3 x 4.2 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $800


Fine and well crystallized Olivenites fill a cavity with Quartz crystals at the edges. Excellent color and perfect condition, and when seen under magnification, the clear quartz prisms have Olivenite rosettes inside. Far better than average for size and esthetics. Wheal Unity Olivenites are usually not so densely crystallized and these are a more blocky habit than typical, the matrix shows some of the distinctive wood copper habit as well. Previous old labels (unattributed) are included. Cornish Olivenites set the world standard for the species, and are highly respected classics. The cavity is nicely centered on the matrix and stands out well. Choice.
Galena ps after Pyrrhotite -ex Minette Collection
stock #Alec-12-249
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
9.3 x 6.3 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $875


A killer esthetic pseudomorph that has bright flattened Galenas arranged epitaxially and completely replacing large Pyrrhotite crystals. This was previously in the Minette, Loud and Hladysz collections. This is also the very best example of this unusual replacement I have seen, in excellent undamaged condition and impressive from all sides. The original Pyrrhotite crystals shapes are perfectly preserved and reach to 7.5 CM across.
Celestite and Calcite
stock #Alec-19-296
Pugh Quarry, Custar, Wood County
Ohio, United States
9.8 x 7.1 x 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $380


Excellent bright blue Celestite crystals dominate this cabinet sized matrix. From the Pugh Quarry a classic US source of fine Calcite and more rarely Celestite. There is a broken crystal on the backside of the specimen that is not visible from the front. otherwise the crystals are in excellent clean condition. A very eye-catching specimen with far better than usual color.
