Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
4.5 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $290

Sharp multi-stepped and transparent light purple cube of Fluorite perched on a dark Sphalerite matrix. From the Elmwood mine, a classic example that is pristine and very attractive. No damage seen and with incredible geometric steps. Esthetic yet affordable.
Epidote/Clinozoisite on Calcite scalenohedral
stock #17.1-AX-20-086
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.5 x 1.9 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Fall 2015

From what is commonly called Eden Mills, this is a very unusual combination. A single scalenohedron of Calcite hosts a lustrous Epidote crystal and sprays of clear Natrolite crystals as well. In good condition overall, the Epidote is broken on one end but fine otherwise, good magnifications reveals chipping on the Natrolites but is not naked-eye visible.

stock #Alec-16-174
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
4.3 x 2.8 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Fall 2015

Colorful and complex specimen with several Serandite crystals in different habits mixed with an assemblage of classic MSH minerals. Loaded with many small crystals on all sides this has the deeper orange color of early finds that is unlike the later pinkish ones.
Elbaite with Lepidolite ex Johansson collected in 1935

Mount Apatite, Auburn, Androscoggin Co.
Maine, United States
3.5 x 2.5 x 2 CM (miniature)

Fall 2015

A fine small specimen of a gem grade Tourmaline from this classic locale famed for purple Apatites. Collected by Warren Johansson his original label reads "Collected 1935 at old tool house near the Keith Quarry". The Elbaite is crudely terminated, it may have been recrystallized. Some chips are noted with 10X magnification. With great color and clarity and a bit of history too.

stock #17.1-AX-20-092
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.6 x 1.2 x 1 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Fall 2015

Brilliant lustrous and in fine condition, this Epidote is a deep green to brownish- golden color, translucent and very sharp. The VAG mine has been closed for years and is a classic American locale. A particularly fine example from the heyday of collecting in the 1970s.
Fluorite w. Quartz
stock #ALEC-32-233
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
2.5 x 2.3 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $130
Fall 2015

Simple cube of transparent Fluorite with modified edges with a small matrix of Quartz. Pale color and some internal clouding but as seen a nice example of the find at Llamas Quarry in quite good condition. Small natural contacts as seen and a cleave on the bottom where removed that is not seen on display. Better in person too.
Calcite on Quartz fingers
stock #ALEC-15-285
Banpo Mine - Dushan Co., Qiannan Aut. Pref.
Guizhou, China
5.6 x 4.7 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Fall 2015

Green Calcite in flattened disk-like crystals are perched on slender fingers of Quartz. When these were found the color was attributed to copper salts in the calcite, this was never confirmed though it is likely. An older specimen obtained in 2002 at the mine and formerly in the Shields Flynn collection. A very good example in fine condition from the one time discovery.
Vesuvianite
stock #15.1-319
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 3 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Fall 2015

A colorful, bright and fine small miniature of glasslike Vesuvianites from the Jeffrey Mine. The color, luster and esthetics are excellent. This quality in a cabinet specimen would be several thousand dollars. Some areas of contact are noted with magnification and some old recrystallized breaks as well. All the main crystals are pristine and undamaged. Better in person
