SOLD Fluorite pink, new find
stock #SOLD 19.1-674
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
3.5 x 2.9 x 2.5 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0


A killer small miniature from the great new finds at Huangang, A perfect cluster of two sharp deep pink to almost red Fluorites. These Octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite. The condition of this is perfect on all sides, each corner and edge is undamaged. This was a very large and impressive find but this level of perfection was very rare. This was selected from hundreds of pieces. This style of Fluorite is quite unique and absolutely unlike any pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted and the interiors are very clear. The included fibers are easily seen. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices reasonable for such incredible specimens.

Adamite (Cuprian)
stock #19.1-877
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.5 x 3.4 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $260


Rich color and bright luster, a fine druse of sharp Adamite crystals on a Gossan Matrix. A few small Calcites and some areas of Conichalcite are also present. The Cuprian Adamite from here are now considered the worlds best by far and can be very esthetic. For years Cuprian Adamite was also known from Tsumeb and was also very attractive but recent studies have shown those should in fact are Zinco-Olivenite. This miniature has two well-crystallized areas that are on opposite sides of the matrix. This specimen is in excellent condition the blue green color is especially bright and this has a good display impact despite the small size.

SOLD Painite
stock #SOLD 19.1-861
Ohngaing, Mogok Valley, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
1.2 x .8 x .5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A terminated, unusually sharp Painite crystal from the type locality of this rare specie. This crystal has bright luster, some transparency / translucence and red highlights under strong lighting. Far better than typical for this usually crude mineral. For many years Painite was described as the worlds rarest gemstone., at that time a crystal of this quality would be priced in the mid 4 figures when available. That has changed over the past decade but this is still certainly a rare mineral. Although dark this is not etched, included or cracked and could certainly be faceted.

A milky Quartz with a subtle phantom is a the matrix for a mass of sharp zoned Fluorite crystals. These Fluorite cubes have a blue to purple edging and white to yellow cores.

Esthetic and in very good condition, the Fluorites are about 3 mm in size. An attractive and unusual specimen, the Fluorites cover three of the faces of the Quartz, the remaining 3 faces are empty.
