SOLD Franklinite, single complete octahedron
stock #SOLD 15.1-628
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
2.9 x 2.7 x 2.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
Spring 2020

A single black octrahedral crystal from vintage 1930's ex. Warren Johansson collection. Dr Johansson was a prolific field collector and active trader well into his nineties. His label is with the specimen. Very nice face modifications and a slight melted look as is classic for the specie. Most Frankinites have considerable damage or are incomplete, but this one is all there, with only minor edge rough spots and one clean contact. Of course this is from the type locality which is really the only source of any sizable crystals worldwide, yet these were at one time plentiful in Franklin. A nice piece that can fit a Thumbnail box but just barely.

Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
6.2 x 4.2 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $285
Spring 2017

A nice classic Franklin, New Jersey Willemite crystal well exposed on Calcite. Vivid fluorescence, sharp prism faces and not acid etched out of the matrix (which was usually done but looks melted and is less desirable). The crystal is typically crude and slightly rounded on some edges with natural cracks but no repairs.

Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
4 x 2.9 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $260
May 2015

A complete 2.9 CM crystal of Rhodonite is perched above a smaller 2.3 CM crystal resting on Calcite matrix. Nicely exposed, the Calcite has not been acid "melted" so this is fully natural. An affordable classic specimen with good color, form and in nice condition, these are getting quite
Rhodonite (Blocky crystals with minor Franklinite, Calcite)
stock #13.1-041
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
4.6 X 3.8 X 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380
Spring 2014

A cluster of five main Rhodonite crystals up to 3.3 CM in size are arranged in an attractive cluster. This is an American classic that has become quite scarce on the market in recent years. The condition is excellent and like most of these had some acid etching to expose the Rhodonite well. The color is well above average and this piece is very 3 dimensional.
