Arizona, United States
6.4 x 4.6 x 2.5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $100
Dec 2018

An attractive combination specimen from the remarkable finds at the Christmas mine. This is the type locale for Ruizite and one of the best locales for Kinoite. There are several vugs that are hold very tiny Ruizite in reddish balls. and much larger bright blue Kinoite mostly of covered by clear Apophyllite crystals. By eye it also looks like there is a few areas of Apacheite (powder blue) but this is not confirmed.

Dec 2018

Spheres of blue Rosasite scattered on Smithsonite and some Calcite. A good locality piece that is especially fine under magnification. The Silver Bill mine has a long history but is not very well known outside of Arizona. It has been a source of Wulfenite and other species as well as Rosasite.

Late Summer 2018

A very sharp, clear, light hued Amethyst scepter in flawless condition from the Fat Jack. Some wispy zoning is noted as is a multi stepping just below the head. We do not see many of these available and almost none with this clarity and undamaged condition. Outstanding, fine Arizona Amethyst.
Mimetite on Wulfenite

Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
1.7 x 1.2 x .7 CM (thumbnail)

Late Summer 2018

Clear widow-pane Wulfenite crystals are the matrix for Mimetite in bright red balls. A small but striking thumbnail from Rowley mine collected during the final efforts there before it was shut down. Delicate and with brilliant color there were not many found like this, and the habit is unique to this one occurrence.
Cerussite with Caledonite and Linarite on Fluorite
stock #18.1-359
Grand Reef Mine - Graham County
Arizona, United States
7.1 x 4.6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Late Summer 2018

Twined Cerussites contrast with an unusual matrix of small dark purple Fluorites. The Cerussites have a few blue inclusions but are mostly whitish. The matrix has several small zones of Caledonite and Linarite. Grand Reef has produced some excellent Lead secondary minerals and is a modern classic locale. This piece looks nice by naked eye but with strong magnification the details are very impressive.
Copper with Cuprite
stock #18.1-281
Ray Mine, Ray District, Dripping Springs Mountain, Pinal county
Arizona, United States
6.1 x 5.7 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Worldwide mix summer

A thin fan like sheet and branching Copper crystals that is partly coated with Cuprite. The Cuprite is in epitaxial crystals and flattened on the Copper. From the Ray mine where many fine Coppers were found, this example is illustrative of the thin vein fillings and coatings that were so significant there. In fine condition and a colorful example, some secondary Copper oxides add a green color to contrast the red Cuprite and metallic Copper hues.

Fine, colorful, delicate and in pristine condition, this is a bright and attractive miniature. From the final mining efforts at Rowley, a choice specimen from this modern classic locale. Transparent windowpane blades standing on contrasting Mimetite matrix. Some of the cryastals have a deep red center zone. Displays well from several angles, this is delicate but shippable.
