Paradamite with Smithsonite
stock #18.1-570
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
3.4 x 1.7 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Dec 2018

A killer Paradamite with outstanding color, form and with contrasting Smithsonite. Paradamite is a very rare mineral and choice pieces are not often available for less than a small fortune (sometimes even a large one) From the recent find, this has the best glassy luster, several crystal habits showing and the quality is top. The last good find of Paradamite was almost 20 years ago, and disappeared right away.
Kobyashevite with Selenite on Calcite
stock #18.1-535
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.5 x 5.1 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400
Dec 2018

The rare coper mineral Kobyashevite was discovered and described in 2011. A close relative of Devilline this Copper Sulfate specie was an exciting find at Mina Ojuela this year, and in this deposit the specimens are impressively large and attractive, certainly the worlds best. It seems that these specimens are postmining redepositions and are always partly overgrown with small needles of clear Selenite. The best examples have a rich blue-green or Turquoise color and when this is deposited on calcite crystals these have a very esthetic presentation. This specimen is in excellent condition and is the most attractive I have seen from the find. A choice and colorful rarity.
Adamite -Manganoan
stock #18-AX-11-043
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
2.7 x 2 x 19 CM (thumbnail)
price: $475
Late Summer 2018

An especially esthetic, sharp flowerlike burst of Manganoan (purple-magenta tipped) Adamite. This cluster rests on a solid gossan matrix like an icecream cone, and has excellent proportions. Fine luster and condition, in person a little more purple color is noted. Ojuela produced only a few of these that looked this good, a quality, competitive thumbnail. Collected pre 2000, perhaps much older.
Hemimorphite
stock #18-AX-19-217
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
10.1 x 7.7 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Late Summer 2018

Two generations of well-formed Hemimophite crystals on a gossan matrix. The smaller crystals are colorless, glass clear and very lustrous. The larger are a milky white with a hint of reddish included Hematite. Free standing, these larger crystals reach 2.5 CM. A very three-dimensional matrix and with several excellent angles for display, this is an older Mina Ojuela specimen that is not like material from later finds. The early finds are highly respected as perhaps the best prismatic crystals of the specie ever found. A modern Mexican classic that is still affordable.
Mimetite with Wulfenite
stock #13.1-139
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.7 x 3.6 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $440
Worldwide mix summer

A choice "wet-look" Mimetite with bright yellow-orange color. In fine condition as seen, from the 2012 pocket at Mina Ojuela, one of the best discoveries there in many years. The form is noticably different from the old San Pedro de Coralitos locality that is now very uncommon and expensive. On this piece the luster and color is noticably brighter, while the Mimetites are more tall and slender. Bright and attractive piece with some tiny Wulfenites scattered about that are best seen with magnification. Excellent value.
Adamite with Calcite
stock #17.1-617
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.9 x 3.8 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $125
Worldwide mix summer

Bright lemon yellow crystals that are sharp and gemmy contrast with white Calcites. Choice and lustrous, this is an older specimen from the "golden era" at Mina Ojuela. Vivid Fluorescence and in great condition.
Adamite- fan form crystals
stock #18-AX-29-112
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.6 x 3.9 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Spring update

Delicate sprays of Adamite in the classic fan form that are nicely perched on mix of Gossan and other Adamites. Attractive small miniature in fine condition, with fans up to 1.8 CM. Good luster and distinctive form this can only be from Mina Ojuela. From 2013 finds, good fans have become hard to find.
Adamite- Multi-color radiating crystals
stock #18-AX-11-273
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
9.1 x 7.8 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
Spring update

A large matrix specimen with big sunburst habit Adamite crystals prominent on contrasting matrix. The radiating crystals are also multicolored, with yellow, magenta and greenish hues. Aside from some small contacts the condition is fine. The largest cluster is sizable at 3.7 CM in diameter. A great example of the specie and a very attractive Ojuela piece as well. Several small sprays of multicolored Adamites are scattered on the back and edges but the main sunburst is the main feature by far.
