Apophyllite - Pink
stock #16.1-1266
Guanajuato, Municipio de Guanajuato
Guanajuato, Mexico
8.7 x 6.8 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $260


A fine crust of Apophyllite crystals with a light pink color and glassy luster. An older piece from Guanajuato with the typical Quartz matrix having amethyst zoning. From the Stanek collection (Brno, Czech republic) we do not see many Guanajuato specimens available, most Mexican pinks are from Zacatecas or Charcas but these were found long before those later finds. In super fine condition.
Acanthite and Polybasite on Quartz
stock #18.1-190
San Juan de Rayas Mine, Municipio de Guanajuato
Guanajuato, Mexico
5.7 x 4.4 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Spring update

A melted look sculpture of Acanthite crystals on Quartz also holds a few small Polybasite crystals in sharp hexagons. Choice older piece from the San Juan de Reyas mine in Guanajuato. In excellent condition as seen and with a nice dark metallic patina. Under 20 X magnification I can see glints of blood red color that indicates at least a tiny bit of Ruby Silver (Pyrargryite) is also present but very small.
Adularia (orthoclase) Var. Valencianite
stock #18.AX-27-238
Valenciana Mine
Guanajuato, Mexico
9.8 x 5.9 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Spring update

A classic and fine old specimen of the Adularia variety Valencianite. Ex Harvard University, Ken Hollman and Terry Szenics collections. From the Valenciana Mine(Guanajuato, Mexico) this has sizable crystals to 2.7 CM,and is in perfect undamaged condition. A dusting of small clear Quartz crystals and a few micro Sulfides ads some character as well.
Calcite on Quartz (amethyst)
stock #16.1-278
Mina Peregrina, Guanajuato
Guanajuato, Mexico
8.4 x 6.4 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Winter 2016-17

Bright glassy clear crystals of light pink-violet Calcite perched on a contrasting amethyst matrix. Classic material from Guanajuato, this is quite eyecatching. In excellent condition, there is a single clean repair that is super hard to find, that needs to be mentioned. This keeps the price low yet this displays like it cost far more.
