stock #Alec 20-077

price: $1050
Spring 2017

A large and super esthetic Auglaize Fluorite. From the heyday of the quarry production over 20 years ago, this is an eyecatching piece with good iridescence that has to be seen in person to appreciate. The open cavity here holds dozens of small perfect orange-brown cubes that off set larger gemmy purple cubes up to 1.5 CM. This is the best large matrix piece I have seen for sale.

Excellent bright blue Celestite crystals dominate this cabinet sized matrix. From the Pugh Quarry a classic US source of fine Calcite and more rarely Celestite. There is a broken crystal on the backside of the specimen that is not visible from the front. otherwise the crystals are in excellent clean condition. A very eye-catching specimen with far better than usual color.

Post Tucson 2015

Ex John Marshall Collection, a fine zoned blue Celestite that has no attachment point, it is crystallized all around. The individual crystals reach 3.5 CM and are sharp with sky blue cores. Vintage 1970's undamaged from a now classic locale. Clay center still sometimes produces a few good specimens but this quality is not typical, the color is a little more vivid in person.
