Carrollite, Chalcopyrite & Calcite
stock #15.1-901
Kamoya, Kambove, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3 x 2.6 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $380
Fall 2015

Fine, sharp silver Carrollite crystals are set on contrasting matrix in an esthetic arrangement. The crystals show complex modifications and growth patterns. Some micro crystals of what looks like Vesigneite are also present. Green copper staining and secondary minerals adds additional contrast. In very good condition which is remarkable for such a delicate mineral. Far better than average.
Pyrite pseudo after Pyrrhotite with Galena and Calcite
stock #ALEC-10-627
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
5.7 x 2.9 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Fall 2015

An excellent Psuedomorph from Niaca with bright, lustrous metallic gold and silver hues. The condition is excellent and the esthetics are far better than most. These have occasionally been found in this famed mine, but never very many and none for some years.
Mimetite
stock #16.1-001
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3 x 1.8 x 1.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $170
Fall 2015

Bright, sparkling and lustrous curved Mimetite crystals from Tsumeb in perfect condition. A small but fine example that looks good from every angle. Esthetic yet very affordable for this quality.
Azurite w. Malachite - Large classic Tsumeb.
stock #17.1-AX-5-052
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
6.8 x 3.8 x 1.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $2950
Fall 2015

Very striking, esthetic, sharp and sizable Azurite with deep color and areas of Malachite alteration. In excellent condition and with textbook quality form. Despite all the many Azurites from Tsumeb over the past century, such fine examples have always been highly prized and are rarely available. Much better in person
Analcime - Classic Locale (circa 1981)
stock #15.1-550
Croft Quarry, Croft
Leicestershire, England
8.2 x 5.2 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $240
Fall 2015

Two generations of sharp and gemmy Analcime crystals in perfect condition. Ex Terry Szenics collection, these crystals range from colorless white to light pink, all have glasslike luster. There is no matrix at all, this is simply a mass of Analcime crystals in all sizes packed together. Unusual and attractive
SOLD Topaz & Quartz
stock #SOLD ALEC-12-214
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
6.2 x 4.9 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Fall 2015

Superb, absolutely gem clear Topaz crystals with glasslike luster sprout from the quartz crystal matrix. Outstanding condition and esthetic form. From the Gilgit area that has produced so much great Topaz, this has just a slight hint of color.
Autunite (fine xls)
stock #17.1- A10-060
Daybreak Mine, Spokane County
Washington, United States
5.3 x 3.8 x 1.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Fall 2015

An outstanding, classic Daybreak mine Autunite. Bright green to yellow green crystals in fine condition in clusters and radiating sprays. Vivid fluorescence. In excellent condition which is rare for this delicate mineral, this can be displayed from several angles. Choice.
Ferroaxinite- large compound crystals
stock #7.AE-344
Polar Urals - Tyumenskaya Oblast
Western Siberian Region, Russia
6.7 x 5.4 x 1.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
Fall 2015

Big and very lustrous Axinite crystals reaching 6.7 CM in size, with razor sharp edges. Transparent on the edges and translucent elsewhere, this is an older, flashy and eyecatching specimen. These have become quite rare (and very expensive) over the past decade or so, this size and quality was never common even then. Now considered a classic find, this example is a relative bargain. Some slight chipping but far less than most do and displayable without being noticable.
