Beryl v. Aquamarine with Rutile on Clevelandite
stock #17.1-AX-19-182
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
6.5 X 4.4 X 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $560
Spring 2017

An older, quite attractive Pakistani Beryl that is almost has a Heliodore hue but not quite. The two prisms are well terminated and have an unusual melted look . There is Rutile as well in several spots. Attractive arrangement, no breaks or repairs.
Apophyllite (disco ball habit) on Stilbite
stock #17.1-AX- 21-022
Rahuri, Ahmadnagar District,
Maharashtra, India
8.6 x 6.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Spring 2017

Probably the most desirable and rarest form of the mineral Apophyllite is the so called disco ball habit. Originally found some years ago while digging a well in Rahuri, these created a sensation. More recently a nearby well yielded a smaller find, all quickly sold. This specimen is from the first well, collected by the Maki family. Excellent esthetics with glass clear undamaged crystals, with two separate radiating hemispheres (over 3.5 CM) nicely perched on the crystallized matrix. A choice example.
Barite - Included by Malachite
stock #Alec-19-258
Likasi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.1 X 5 X 4 CM (miniature)
price: $520
Spring 2017

Clear Barite crystals with some blebs and wisps of bright green Malachite inside and on the prisms. from the great Shaba Crescent area, this is a nice example. As is typical for this locale, magnification shows several bruises but most of the main crystals are in reasonable clean condition. Though not right for a perfectionist, this is still a good display specimen and these are no longer coming out from the Congo.
Elbaite - multi color classic Tourmaline
stock #13.1-274
Pala, San Diego Co.
California, United States
4 x 1.4 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $420
Spring 2017

Very good form and color, a single terminated crystal of classic Pala area Elbaite. A single clean repair is noted, so much more affordable than usual. 12.4 grams, pretty much all gem grade with 3 separate color sections. Fully transparent, we did not backlight the photos, so it will be better in person. This had an older price of 775.00.
Dolomite on Quartz
stock #14.1-334
Williamsville Quarry, Poplar Bluffs
Missouri, United States
6 x 4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $110
Spring 2017

A very colorful Dolomite, bright yellow to Orange bladed crystals contrast well with a dark druzy quartz matrix. I have not seen another specimen like this piece from this locale, better known for Calcites. Super showy and in fine condition.
Fluorite with Barite
stock #7AE-087
Berbes, Ribadesella
Asturias, Spain
9.4 X 5.6 X 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Spring 2017

Clear and very sharp zoned violet Fluorite cubes mixed with Barite blades. Classic Berbes type specimen in excellent condition. The bright luster and overall arrangement make this a much better than typical specimen. Better in person.
Copper- large crude crystals with Silver
stock #13.1-407
Calumet and Hecla Mine, Calumet, Houghton County
Michigan, United States
4.7 x 3.7 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $250
Spring 2017

An old specimen from Houghton County with sizable (2 CM) distinct yet crude crystals standing above a mostly Copper matrix. Some sharp faces are seen but overall the crystals are very distorted. A few spots of Native Silver are also seen with magnification.
Smithsonite with Calcite
stock #13.1-802
Kelly Mine, Magdalena
New Mexico, United States
8.8 x 6.3 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
Spring 2017

A very pretty, classic Smithsonite from the famed Kelly mine. Nice wet look luster and three dimensional surface. In fine condition, undamaged on the display side, sawn on the back and sits well for display. These have become quite prized over the past few years and this is a particularly good value for this quality. The large knob that protrudes from the concave area is 3.2 CM across and has a few small Calcites on the surface.
