Anglesite
stock #13.1-084
Touissit, Toussit District
Oriental Region, Morocco
3.9 x 2 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $390
Post Tucson 2015

From Touissit, a good clear Anglesite with a nice yellow hue and excellent luster. In good condition overall, there is a very small chip on the back side of the large crystal that is not seen on display. This location produced many outstanding Anglesites which are now considered the world's best. Now the mine has been closed for over 20 years and nice Anglesites are quite scarce and very expensive.
Corundrum var. Sapphire with some color change

Corundum deposit, Yingshan Co., Huanggang Pref.
Hubei, China
7.1 x 5.6 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)

Post Tucson 2015

From a little known Chinese locality, These Corundum crystals are well formed and similar but noticeably distinct from the better known Madagascar specimens. Individual crystals reach 1.6 CM and are a blueish hue in daylight but have a more purple-red look in some artificial lights. The color change is subtle but clear. In very good condition, the crystals are well exposed and have a small amount of translucency at the edges.

Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao

price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

Perfect 360 degree "floater" compound crystal of fine green Pyromorphite from the famed and prolific Daoping Mine. Outstanding hoppered form with distinct striations on all faces. No eye visible damage, micro chips under .1 mm can be found with 20X magnification. This is far better than most of these large crystals and it displays well.

price: $330

Bright and gemmy Celestite (Celestine) crystals are in radial sprays on vivid Sulphur crystals. In fine condition, the matrix is an open pocket that has protected the delicate crystals inside. Similar to old specimens from Sicily, the luster and sparkle of this specimen is equal to those.

Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia

A very fine Tsumeb specimen with excellent zoned Smithsonite crystals on a contrasting matrix. This flat matrix displays well on both sides, it can be difficult to decide which is the better face to present. The "rear" has a huge stepped, etched Smithsonite crystal that is 2.4 CM across, the front shows several smaller, textbook perfect color-zoned crystals. Very esthetic and in fine condition.

An old specimen (comes with a label from Commercial Mineral corp. vintage 1965) There are small sharp Pyrites and Calcites scattered on many faces. No mine name is on the old label but we are assured this is a fine example from the Ladywash mine in Eyan.

A cute, gem clear crystallized and esthetic Selenite from the famed Naica Mine. Crystals to 4 CM long are sharp and undamaged with perfect transparency.
