Superb, textbook form Bournonite twin crystals are perched on contrasting Quartz. Undamaged, (which is rare with Bournonites) and showing fine patina on sharp "cogswheels" and interconnected prisms. Excellent for this locale, this is quite choice from anyplace.
Serandite with Natrolite etc.
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.
Epidote/Clinozoisite on Calcite scalenohedral
stock #ALEC-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.

Tennessee, United States
4.5 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Fall 2015

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.

A sweet miniature with a great form from the collection of Larry White. Classic locale, the Elbaite here is 2.3 CM long and has a clear green section one one end. Doubly terminated with one end rather crudely recrystallized. The Microcline plate provides a fine contrast. Choice.

stock #ALEC-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 1970's.

A very good specimen of the rare cubic habit Magnetite from this now classic discovery made 20 years ago. Very good luster and the desirable face modifications on individual crystals that reach 2 CM. Typical edge bruising and damage on the outer areas, the main crystals are in a protected vug and are sharp, complete and shiny.
