Hematite with Rutile
stock #20.1-164
Cavradi, Tavetsch, Grissons
Graubunden, Switzerland
3 x 1.7 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $140
Spring 2020

Swiss Hematite with very well formed blades standing on minimal matrix. A close exam shows some tiny but brilliant red Rutile crystals on some faces. A nicely composed thumbnail (or toenail) that looks good from both sides. In excellent condition, a very lustrous and classic Alpine specimen. This specimen was originally labeled as from St Gotthard, but we are assured this habit with the epitaxial Rutile is unquestionably from Cavradi and is distinctive for the Cavradi Gorge.
Titanite with Adularia, Byssolite, Apatite etc.
stock #15.1-1054-(SM2740)
Grischun (Grisons)
Graubunden, Switzerland
10.5 x 6.5 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $600
Winter 2016-17

An old Swiss classic Alpine specimen. Complexly structured matrix hosts several minerals in layers with gemmy green Titanites on the top. Beds of Bysollite needles have well crystallized Adularia protruding and micro sprays of Apatite throughout. This displays the complex nature of mineralization in Alpine clefts very well. The Titanites crystals are up to 1 CM though most are smaller. Ex Charles M. Noll and Jim Dufoe collections.
