Creedite
stock #19.1-756
Mina Navidad, Abasolo, Rodeo
Durango, Mexico
5.2 x 3.2 x 3.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $180


Radiating cluster of very distinct Creedite crystals that are free standing, reaching nearly 3 CM tall. Aside from the much larger than usual crystals, this has very rich color, some transparency and fine luster. Mina Navidad has been the source of nearly all good orange Creedites, a mineral usually colorless or brown (rarely purple) and usually in much smaller crystals. This is far above average miniature, excellent for the size and especially esthetic.
Adamite- Manganoan (purple) with Austinite
stock #19.1-752
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
2.8 x 2.2 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $700


Killer thumbnail with intense bright color and great esthetics. A cluster of Adamite crystals showing saturated color zoning and featuring a saturated Purple sector. In perfect, undamaged condition. The back side and a few other spots have some nice small balls of Austinite as well, an unusual combination that adds a bit to the overall interest. Purple Adamite from Mina Ojuela is one of the most desired of Mexican minerals, this color and quality is found rarely and prized.
Fluorite -deep purple -fluorescent red
stock #19.1-758
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.7 x 3.6 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $330


Rich "royal purple" cubes on a contrasting gossan matrix from the prolific Mina Ojuela. Excellent transparenc with lightly etched faces this has the best color that can be found at this locality and has the rare brilliant red fluorescence that makes this Fluorite unique. In great condition as seen, the display side is undamaged there are some contacts on the backside only and not seen. Choice and eyecatching, the red UV response is especially strong on this specimen.
Smithsonite -"sky blue"
stock #10.1-284
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
8.3 x 4.8 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $260


The Choix locality at one time produced a rainbow of various colored Smithsonite. The "sky blue" was one of the more rare colors, while the green blue was the most common. The area is no longer being worked and these have become more prized in the past few years, yet are still far less expensive than most other localities. This is a vibrant and deeply colored example with very nice texture and luster, it is in excellent condition as well. I recently saw a polished cabochon of this material that looked just like a fine gem Silica, the color in person is similar. This will add a rich color to any cabinet or suite of Smithsonite.
Adamite
stock #17.1-616
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.3 x 3.2 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $130


Bright lemon-green color Adamite crystals with grading to colorless near their base. These are sharp and lustrous with very good relief from the matrix. Ojuela has produced vast numbers of Adamites in many hues and habits, these are modern classiocs and quite affordable compared to the mineral from anyplace else. A sparkling miniature of well developed crystals and choice, less common color.
Smithsonite-
stock #17.1-600
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
5 x 3.2 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $330


Top color, a bright pink Smithsonite from an old find at Choix. This small prospect has been the source of some incredible Smithsonites with remarkable colors. This is a really intense "bubble gum" pink even more vivid in person. The delicate botryoidal form is quite three dimensional on this piece. No longer available the locality has become too dangerous for any mining, and in recent years very few good specimens were found as the locale is more or less played out. Great display impact for the size
Smithsonite -Purple
stock #17.1-598
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
4.3 x 3.4 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $260


A purple Smithsonite with distinct botryoidal structure and an elegant sculptural form. Purple is perhaps the rarest Smithsonite color and not known from many other localities. From the early finds by Benny Fenn this is a nice miniature that looks fine from either side. Sadly this locality is no longer working as it is quite dangerous at this time. In excellent condition as seen, a nice addition to any suite of Smithsonite or of Mexican minerals.
Aurichalcite
stock #19. AX-886
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.7 x 5 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


A dense carpet of bright blue-green needle crystals of Aurichalcite on Gossan Matrix. An older Mina Ojuela specimen, this is in impressive condition for such an obviously fragile mineral. This locality has been a source of world class Copper, Lead and Zinc minerals for centuries. Especially amazing under magnification, this small cabinet specimen has a rich three dimensional character and displays well.
