Shattuckite in Quartz with Malachite
stock #17.1-793
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
6.1 x 4.6 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
Late Summer 2018

One of the most sought after Quartz from Namibia are the Shattuckite included pieces like this. The main 4.6 CM tall milky Quartz crystal has several zones of dark blue inclusions. A Malachite spray adds a nice accent. The quartz shows signs of re-crystallization and has the "corncob" type habit. The termination is more transparent than the body of the Quartz and a few spots of Shattuckite can be seen through the top.
Azurite- slender form, complex cluster
stock #17.1-789
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
6.6 x 4.2 x 2.8 (cabinet)
price: $650
Late Summer 2018

All Azurite crystals with no matrix to speak of. This slender jackstraw habit much like a modern art sculpture was distinctive for the Touissit mine more than twenty years ago. The Azurites are of a complex habit and have several different styles of jagged terminations. In fine condition despite the delicate form, a few bits of adhering gossan are noted in some of the nooks and crannies. A choice and now classic specimen this style Azurite is noticeably unlike any from other localities.
Pyromorphite - Classic locale
stock #0209-JM-1739
Red Gill Mine, Roughton Gill, Caldbeck Fells
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
3.3 x 3.1 x 2.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $380
Late Summer 2018

An extraordinary specimen for this locale. A super three dimensional very old Red Gill specimen, Ex. Ecole des Mines (Paris), Phil Scalisi and John Marshall collections. The crystals are free standing up to 1.6 CM and very lustrous. Older labels and collection card are included. Red Gill is famed for its Linarites and Caledonites, but its Pyromorphites are very rare, often with much smaller crystals. I have not seen a better Pyro specimen from this mine.
Phenakite- Gem twin crystal
stock #8AE-580
Khetchel, Malo, near Momiek
Shan State, Myanmar (Burma)
1.7 x .7 x .6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160
Late Summer 2018

Colorless, glass clear and sharp, a single Phenakite crystal from the find in 2006. The termination shows the "drill bit" form of twinning with the six re-entrant angles clearly seen. A textbook clean example, this style of Phenakite from Myanmar are unique and instantly recognizable. No damage but with clean contacts as seen.
Pyromorphite -Rare locality
stock #0694-JM-554
Electric Point Mine, Gladstone Mountain, Leadpoint, Stevens County
Washington, United States
4.2 x 3.7 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $110
Late Summer 2018

This is the only Pyromorphite I have seen from this locality, therefore I could say it is the best one I have EVER seen! Actually it is fairly rich, a nearly pure piece of Pyro, but clearly not fine display grade, with modest crystals and some vugs of botryoidal crusts. Ex John Marshall Pyromorphite Suite obtained by trade with the Royal Ontario Museum in 1972. A rare locality piece with good color and some nice areas.
Rauenthalite- type locale
stock #18-AX-10-695
Gabe Gottes Mine, Ste-Marie-aux-Mines, Haut Rhin
Alsace, France
5.7 x 3.5 x 2.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $70
Late Summer 2018

From the type locale at Ste-Marie-Aux-Mines, several areas of white acicular crystals scattered on matrix. Not an esthetic specie (though not really ugly either...), but rare, and an unusually large piece, most specimens are small, often under 1mm. Ex William Hladysz collection.
Pyromorphite and Mimetite - Classic Locale
stock #1040-JM-753
Driggith Opencut, Caldbeck Fells, (Cumberland)
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
6.5 x 5.4 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Late Summer 2018

A richly crystalized specimen in fine condition collected in 1970 by John Marshall. John notes on his collection card " Found in the north end of the open cut above Driggith Mine on West Fell. Specimens in the south end tested Mimetite but this is deeper green and more Pyromorphite in shape". These crystals are far larger than average and the condition is excellent. Sadly this quality has not been found for decades, John spend many weeks digging in this zone and this was his best specimen. A very fine Driggith piece.
Topaz - new find
stock #18.1-350
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.3 x 2.3 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $120
Late Summer 2018

From a small zone of blue Topaz crystals found in mid 2017 on Hohenstein in Erongo, Namibia. The matrix is made of thousands of micro Topaz crystals, so this is all Topaz. The main crystal is 1.3 CM tall with glassy luster. In fine condition, and a quite different style than the usual Topaz from Erongo. In excellent condition, esthetic and a good value.
