Fizelyite w. Semseyite etc Type Locality
stock #16.1-668
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
5.8 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Pre Holiday 2017

An unusually fine, rich and even attractive specimen of well crystallized Fizelyite. A rare Silver and Lead sulfosalt that is most often a "black ugly", this specimen is quite appealing. This has very bright luster and sharp form, dense crystal coverage and is associated with some fans of Semsyite on a Sulphide matrix. From the old Finds at Herja / Baia Mare, Romania which is they type locality for the specie. Hard to fine in good specimens this is far above average for quality and condition.
Grossular- transparent gem crystals
stock #17.AL-481
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.2 x 2.6 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1350
Pre Holiday 2017

A killer miniature of absolutely transparent bright gem Grossular from the Jeffrey mine. When the mine was running, there were many different habits, colors and associations of Garnet found, usually in small zones that were never repeated. Over the years many habits have become especially desirable to collectors and this habit is one of them. This has rich red-orange color with good crystal separation, brilliant luster and impeccable transparency. Overall the arrangement of the Grossular is esthetic and the whole displays well from all sides. No damage, an esthetic example for the specie from the worlds greatest Grossular locale.
Quartz v. Amethyst -
stock #A 32-053
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
8 x 6.8 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1500
Pre Holiday 2017

An incredibly formed Quartz- a "mushroom cap" style Amethyst on a contrasting matrix (this is not a scepter but more like an umbrella). In outstanding condition with great form and color, this is a very rare habit, I have only seen one other specimen. The Karur diggings have occasionally produced some exotic Quartz and this is a great example of "exotic". Below the fringe line of the cap a few tiny single crystals some sceptered protrude like little fingers. Complex parallel and stacked crystals in radial form join at the peak of the cap in a crude termination of sorts. Even the matrix is unusual, a mix of small crystals of Calcite, Quartz, Albite, Clinoclore etc that is much like some Alpine matrixes. A very special addition for any fine Quartz suite.
Quartz v. Amethyst -Flower form
stock #17.1-294
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
6.2 x 4.2 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

A very esthetic and unique flowerform Amethyst from the amazing discoveries at Tamil Nadu. At the top of the starburst or flower this has single larger petal or crystal that is wider and flatter but is also hoppered, skeletal and loaded with interesting inclusions. Undamaged and complete (which is rare for this habit) and with the deepest possible purple color this is a striking display piece. We have been quite active gathering the best of this location and this is a standout.
Chryoprase (unusual crystallized specimen with Pimelite/Nimite)
stock #16.1-682
Szklary (Glasendorff) Zabkowice, Zabkowice District
Lower Silesia, Poland
6.6 x 5.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Pre Holiday 2017

A very odd and attractive Chrysoprase specimen from the very old mines at Szklary, Poland. The matrix hosts very unusual but attractive clear quartz crystals with a mint green color caused by forming on top of the Chrysoprase. Szklary had both gem grade Chrysoprase and many Nickle minerals mined since the middle ages. We obtained a suite from that region in an old Czech collection, this notes it was obtained in 1980 the year the mine closed. We have never seen another one like this, the sparkling luster is not at all typical. Some areas of the earthy green minerals Pimelite and/or Nimite are noted as accessories, more typical for the area. A pretty quartz oddity.
Pyromorphite
stock #17.1-474
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.6 x 2.9 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant yellow to light orange lustrous crystals of Pyromorphite from the famed Bunker Hill Mine. These are uncommon colors for Pyromorphite and this piece is in excellent condition. Several good display angles and with minimal matrix, this is a really nice small miniature from a classic, closed mine.
Euchroite - Type locale

Svatodusna deposit, Lubietova, Banska Bystrica Co.
Banska Bystrica Region, Slovakia
10.7 x 5.8 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $110
Pre Holiday 2017

An older, sizable matrix with a good covering of Euchroite crystals up to about 3mm. The condition is excellent, the color a deep green and a nice contrast to the matrix. From the type locale.

Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.3 x 3.5 x 2 CM (miniature)

Deep green Dioptase crystals is selectively deposited on milky white Calcite rhombs in an attractive arrangement. The contrast is very distinctive and a classic Tsumeb habit. In fine condition, this is a choice yet affordable specimen from this iconic locale
