Grossular with minor natrolite
stock #17.AL-504
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 3.3 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $240
Winter 2016-17

A good specimen of a type that is becoming hard to find and often very expensive. This has a nice presentation overall but has damage to some smaller crystals and with magnification more chipping is seen, so it is not for perfectionists. Good value for color, luster and contrast with the light matrix. Shows good isolation of the Garnets too. Far less expensive than an ultra perfect specimen but in normal display looks just as nice.
Anglesite with Arsentsumebite, Duftite
stock #16.1-300
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.5 x 2.5 x 3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $425
Winter 2016-17

A single crystal of Anglesite in the pointed habit that has had some dissolution pockets near the base that are now filled with crystallized Arsentsumebite and Mottramite. Nice color contrast and a pearly luster on the Anglesite add character. Some minor bruises exist at 10 magnificatrion these look like typical bruising but at 40X magnification it seems some of this is partly recrystallized so these are more likely semi-healed old in-situ damage or contacts. A nice piece with a rather uncommon association.
Epidote well crystallized , with Actinolite
stock #16.1-284
Ore Hill mine, Warren, Grafton Co.
New Hampshire, United States
6.7 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Winter 2016-17

Lustrous oil-green prisms are well presented on the contrasting Actinolite. From a less well known Northeastern US locality (the Ore Hill mine, Warren, NH) Ex Bob Whitmore collection, the condition is excellent.Choice piece from an uncommon locale.
Anglesite- gemmy
stock #15.1-1000 (SM415)
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
3.7 x 2.1 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $500
Winter 2016-17

A very good classic habit Touissit Anglesite that is the natural color "lemon" hue. Very lustrous and sharp some small contacts and chips are there but still the quality and condition is far above average, and still relatively affordable. More transparent that is seen in the photos, these have now become quite rare and pricey in this quality. A good value. Ex Charles M. Noll collection.
Andradite with Actinolite (Uralite)
stock #16.1-290
Stanley Mine, Graham Co.
Arizona, United States
3.4 x 2.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $110
Winter 2016-17

Unusually sharp, isolated and nicely composed, this is a lot more esthetic than most specimens from this well known locale. No damage, 3 dimensional specimen that can easily be trimmed to make a fine thumbnail.
Anglesite
stock #16.1-004A
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
4.5 x 3.7 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $680
Winter 2016-17

A classic, sharp and very transparent cluster of Anglesites with a tiny bit of Galena included. Pale yellow color and some zoning to colorless. The specimen is more transparent in person, it is difficult to capture. The main crystals are clean of damage but there are contacts and the small crystals on the edges have broken areas mostly where this was removed. Despite that, the over all look is very esthetic. The mine closed in the 1990s these are getting harder to find in this quality.
Vesuvianite (purple and green)
stock #17.AL-503
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.3 x 1.3 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $320
Winter 2016-17

Sharp, gem-clear bi color Vesuvianite crystal from the great Jeffrey mine. The range of color and habit of Jeffrey Vesuvianites is incredible, they considered the worlds best and quite prized. This is a well formed thumbnail with fine luster and an unusual color palette.
Plumbogummite (pseudo after Pyromorphite)
stock #16.1-280
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
4.1 x 3.7 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $420
Winter 2016-17

The Daoping area finds of Plumbogummite have been extraordinary, by far the best quality ever seen. this specimen is an esthetic treelike cluster of former Pyros which are sizable and well formed. The replacement with a powder blue to yellow green Plumbogummite seems to be complete. In excellent condition, a choice piece of a modern classic find.
