Fluorite on Quartz
stock #18-AX-20-230
La Viesca Mine, Huergo, La Collada, Siero
Asturias, Spain
6.6 x 4.1 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Late Summer 2018

A multi-color phantom Fluorite nicely perched on a sculptural matrix covered with druzy Quartz crystals. Excellent transparency and in fine condition, there are a few additional Fluorites on the specimen one of which is a slender, highly elongated cube. A classic European locale, the La Viesca Mine is famed for vibrant color varieties and general quality of its Fluorites. This one is a bit unusual but still has the look and style well known from this venerable locality.
Barite- perfect rosettes
stock #18.1-434
La Union Mine, Sierra de Cartagena
Murcia, Spain
5.8 x 3.3 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Late Summer 2018

Remarkable, perfect and esthetic. Free standing rosettes of Barite crystals on a rough matrix arranged in a line. This locale has produced a lot of nice Barite specimens but very few have anything close to this elegant perfection. Under 40X magnification there are no chips or damage seen, which is incredible with such a delicate mineral in thin bladed crystals. Better in person too.
Quartz, red doubly terminated (Eisenkiesel)
stock #18.1-412
Chella, Valencian Community
Valencia, Spain
2.3 x 1.2 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $60
Late Summer 2018

A choice single crystal of the blood red "Eisenkiesel" habit, complete all around. With strong bright Hematite inclusions, these Spanish Quartzes are distinctive. The local name for these is "Jacinto de Compostela" and they are unlike any other Quartz.
Lavendulan with Conichalcite etc.
stock #8AE-993
La Reconquistada, Pastrana, Mazzaron
Murcia, Spain
7.3 x 4.7 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
Late Summer 2018

A very rich specimen of several uncommon Copper species, most importantly Lavendulan. Also containing a sizable zone of Conichalcite, minor Azurite and what appears to be Barahenaite (not analyzed). The Lavendulan is present in thick bands, crusts and small crystals of several habits. The Conichalcite is in translucent green globules covering one entire face. Lavendulan is a Phosphate and also an Arsenate, with the complex formula ofNaCaCu5(AsO4)4Cl·5H2O. Not often seen on the mineral market except in small blebs or micromounts.
Dolomite- Penetration twins, gemmy crystals
stock #18- AX-19-153
Cantera Nueva, Eugui
Navarra, Spain
7.1 x 6.3 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
Worldwide mix summer

A fine transparent cluster of Dolomite crystals from the classic Spanish locality of Eugui, Navarre. An uncommon matrix piece, the crystals are up to 4 CM in diameter and very sharp, undamaged. Dolomite is a very common mineral and crystals are not rare at all, but sharp, gem clear Rhombs like this are really only found at this one locality and they are very rare in such quality. Some minor dark zoning is seen but overall these are white to colorless and mostly transparent. The penetration twinning is textbook sharp and clear, an excellent piece found in 1998.
SOLD Pyromorphite
stock #SOLD 15.1-980-SM 1456
Horcajo, Ciudad Real
Castile-La Mancha, Spain
4.6 x 3.7 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $0
Worldwide mix summer

A first rate Horcajo Pyromorphite with fine color and in impeccable condition. Crystals in several habits including simple needles and barrel crystals with hoppers and pointed tip terminations. Individual prisms to 1.2 CM are thickly strewn on matrix, but despite the delicacy the condition is remarkable. Ex Charles Noll collection obtained by him over 40 years ago.
Fluorite - cube with beveled edges
stock #18.1-236
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.5 x 2.2 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

Transparent cube, slightly elongated with beveled edges and light purple color. From the small digs at the Llamas site, this has both clear and lightly frosted faces, no damage but some contacts that can be seen through the cube from different angles. We are very impressed with the quality of these Fluorites, they are one of the best recent finds for the specie.

stock #18.1-169
Resuperferolitica Mine, Santa Eufemia
Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain
8 x 6 cm (cabinet)
price: $675
Spring update

Ex. John Marshall collection, a very well crystallized Santa Eufemia Pyro with large individual crystals that exceed 1.6 CM. This is overall in excellent condition and is crystallized on 2 sides with large vugs filled with sprays and freestanding individual crystals. A super display piece from a very important locality.
