Thompsonite-Ca with Mesolite
stock #18-AX-6-041
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
5.8 x 4.1 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Worldwide mix summer

A sparkling pink hemisphere of Thomsonite sits esthetically on a contrasting matrix. From a pocket found a few years ago, these pink Thompsonite were an exciting new find then, unlike any others with a covering of tiny needles of Mesolite that gave a nice luster. In fine condition, these are no longer available, and at that time very few were undamaged like this. A great addition to any suite of Indian or Zeolite minerals.
Brochantite on Malachite -historic
stock #1145-JM-3267
Frisco, San Francisco Mts. Beaver County
Utah, United States
5.4 x 4.4 x 3 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $175
Worldwide mix summer

A vug of well protected Brochantite crystals ex John Marshall collection that has an excellent provenance. John bought this from Johnathan Smith (NYC mineral dealer) in Feb 1994. Jonathan had obtained this from the Alan Green collection who had gotten this from the Schortmann brothers at their famed sale in NYC in 1950, at the Hotel Lexington. This is the period where the Schortmans were selling minerals collected by Ed Over and Arthur Montgomery. All the original labels for this are included. In good condition, a cute Utah Copper specimen with pedigree.
Phosgenite- complete complex crystal
stock #15.1-999-SM-3078
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
3.8 x 2.5 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Worldwide mix summer

An excellent, well formed complex Phosgenite from Touissit, Morocco. Ex Charles Noll collection, this is crystalized all around, nearly all transparent gem clear and with an elaborate shape. Touissit Phosgenites are only rarely available, they are regarded as some of the worlds best. Much less common on the market than the Sardinian Phosgenites, these were only discovered shortly before the mine closed for good. This is in fine condition as seen, which is also very rare with this delicate and brittle mineral.
Vanadinite -fine deep red
stock #6.2-775
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
6.1 x 3.4 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $725
Worldwide mix summer

A super bright red Vanadinite from Mibladen. This remarkable locale for almost 40 years has produced Vanadinite, all dug laboriously in tiny hand excavated crawlways. The best of these are with this electric red color and habit. The luster and condition of this piece are very fine, far better than average, with crystals to 1.4 CM across, on a contrasting matrix. Better in person, a very good value for this quality. Mined in 2006 and with excellent display impact.
Barite -transparent with Phantoms
stock #16.1-083
Susville, La Mure, Isere
Rhone-Alpes, France
3.9 x 3.5 x .9 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Worldwide mix summer

Transparent blade crystals of Barite with a white fringe and phantoms inside. Sharp and lustrous from a small but remarkable French find 3 years ago. A choice example, very delicate and in eye-perfect condition. With 10 x magnification the main crystals are pristine. At 20 X a tiny chip is found on a tiny side crystal near the base. A choice example.

stock #18- AX-10-811
Kirkby Thore. Vale of Eden
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
6.3 x 4.6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $140

A sharp and curious old English specimen of Daisy bed or Daisy Wheel habit gypsum crystals on matrix. Some of the flowers have the rare but desirable Rhombohedral crystal preserved at the center or core of the flowers. The matrix has these flowers displayed on two sides.
Spodumene - dichroic, bi-color crystal
stock #7AE-304
Pech, Chapa Dara District
Kunar Province, Afghanistan
9.1 x 5.3 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
Worldwide mix summer

A big, well terminated, pale but very clear gem crystal of Spodumene. The crystal is strongly dichroic and if rotated in front of a computer monitor the color changes from violet to a mint green. This was collected more than 15 years ago, this is not like the more recent finds. Very good condition, the color is a bit deeper than seen in the photos.
Fluorite, Helvite and Lollingite
stock #A-14B-117
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
8.9 x 7.9 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $3600
Worldwide mix summer

A crazy but extraordinary piece, of a superb quality that is rarely available on the web, Complex, with colorless transparent Fluorites perched on very sharp Lollingite crystals. A few of the Fluorites have inclusions of Helvite crystals and there are fine rosettes of Helvite crystals on the Lollingite as well. In outstanding condition, this can displays in many orientations with strong impact. From the first significant discovery at Huanggang, the form of the Fluorite is textbook perfect. Superb in person, a very choice top Chinese specimen.
