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 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.
Danburite (gemmy pink) on Calcite
stock #16.1-277
Charcas
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
5.3 x 5.2 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Winter 2016-17

Set like a pink jewel in a cluster of Calcite crystals, this equant Danburite is in outstanding condition. What may look like damage is simply internal veils seen inside the crystal. Very esthetic, this displays well from several angles. There is chipping on some calcite mostly on the underside and back, but not seen on the logical display side. A modern classic, choice.
Calcite on Quartz (amethyst)
stock #16.1-278
Mina Peregrina, Guanajuato
Guanajuato, Mexico
8.4 x 6.4 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Winter 2016-17

Bright glassy clear crystals of light pink-violet Calcite perched on a contrasting amethyst matrix. Classic material from Guanajuato, this is quite eyecatching. In excellent condition, there is a single clean repair that is super hard to find, that needs to be mentioned. This keeps the price low yet this displays like it cost far more.
Legrandite -single crystal
stock #16.1-279
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
2.1 x .5 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $880
Winter 2016-17

A sharp and clean crystal of Legrandite with intense lemon yellow color. In undamaged condition even at 20X magnification, this is from the first find at Ojuela that produced the best of the specie. Legrandites have become something of a trophy specie and often very expensive even for average specimens. An outstanding thumbnail.
Fluorapatite -stacked crystal chain
stock #16.1-158
La Marina Mine, Pauna
Boyaca, Colombia
2.1 x .8 x .6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $400
Winter 2016-17

A fine, sharp pink Apatite from the well known finds at the La Marina Emerald mine. Delicate transparent to translucent crystals with bright glasslike luster are in a faden-like stack. Small but very pretty and in fine condition.
Elbaite Bi color
stock #16.1-017
Mesa Grande, San Diego Co.
California, United States
3.3 x 1 x .7 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Winter 2016-17

Gem clear and quite impressive for the small size, a delicate pastel hue Tourmaline. Formed of two clear crystals one with a perfect termination, the smaller is broken at the tip, hence quite inexpensive. Despite this break the tourmaline still looks quite attractive.
Cuprite (gem) w. Plancheite
stock #12.1-167
Kolwezi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.5 x 4.3 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Winter 2016-17

Sharp Cuprites to 1.8 CM are set nicely on a contrasting Malachite and Plancheite matrix. Some natural pitting on the back side but no real damage, the Cuprites are all bright translucent red when backlit.A good value and no longer available.
