Anhydrite with Calcite
stock #17.1-648
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.6 x 6.2 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Spring update

Exceptional quality and esthetics, these blue Anyhydite crystals in the flat blade form are dusted with small sparkling Calcites. Older specimen from Naica, that produced some of the worlds best Anhydrite crystals, now quite uncommon on the market and very rare in this quality. Sharp undamaged terminations and baby-blue color. The tiny Calcites are mostly colorless transparent, doubly terminated scalenohedrons but some have dark unknown inclusions as well. Ex Hitchings collection, this in an early 1960 vintage piece. Naica is now flooded and seems it will not again be worked.
Pyrite pseudo after Pyrrhotite with Galena and Calcite
stock #ALEC-10-627
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
5.7 x 2.9 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Fall 2015

An excellent Psuedomorph from Niaca with bright, lustrous metallic gold and silver hues. The condition is excellent and the esthetics are far better than most. These have occasionally been found in this famed mine, but never very many and none for some years.
Selenite
stock #ALEC-19-073
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.3 x 3.7 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $190
Post Tucson 2015

A cute, gem clear crystallized and esthetic Selenite from the famed Naica Mine. Crystals to 4 CM long are sharp and undamaged with perfect transparency. Selenite (Gypsum) is a common mineral but good specimens like this are rare. The photos look somewhat cloudy inside the crystals however in person they are all absolutely clear with excellent luster
Fluorite on Galena
stock #15.1-092
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.6 x 4.2 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $80
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, clear example of the classic Naica Mine Fluorite with beveled edge cubes on contrasting Galena. Some back edge chips are noted so this is priced to be especially affordable but it displays like a much more expensive piece.
SOLD Selenite (clear gypsum)
stock #SOLD Alec 10-419
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.1 x 3.1 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

Glass clear and super sharp, a single gem clear crystal perched on a gossan matrix. Classic locale, this is vintage 1970's ex. Wm. Hladysz collection. The clarity and size is impressive as is the overall condition, the crystal is contacted at the back where attached to the matrix but otherwise in fine shape. For a delicate mineral this is a textbook perfect example, and better in person.
Fluorite on Dolomite with Chalcopyrite
stock #8.1-445
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.4 x 5.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $250


An older piece (60s vintage) from the John Marshall collection, this is distinctly different from more recent materials from Naica. Clear, transparent Fluorites are well placed on a contrasting matrix. The crystals are undamaged, bright, gemmy and have slightly curved faces. Displays very well, this will be a great addition to any Fluorite collection.
