Pyromorphite
stock #16.1-254
Level 9, Jersey Vein, Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur dAlene District,
Idaho, United States
5.7 x 4.4 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1350
Spring 2020

Well formed "wet look" crystals of green and orange Pyromorphite clustered on a contrasting matrix. From the great finds at Bunker Hill Mine, this is a very fine example with especially bright luster and top form. Individual crystals reach to 1.3 cm and are in fine condition. The orange color crystals are much less common and are sometimes called Arsenian Pyromorphite, although there may not be much or any Arsenic in them. Sharp deep orange crystals are quite rare, most are more botryoidal and do not have sharp faces. This specimen does have some small but clearly sharp prismatic orange crystals. Overall very esthetic.
Stibnite
stock #9.1-247
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
6.7 x 5.2 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Spring 2020

An esthetic classic Romanian Stibnite crystal cluster with colorful patina on several crystals. This is a radiating group of metallic crystals that is damage free and looks good on all sides. This is an older specimen (30 years or more) from the Cavnic mines that have been closed for a few years. These older stibnites are unique in their habit and look and are clearly recognizable being unlike those from other localities.
Topaz on Quartz with Muscovite etc
stock #20.1-105
Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
4.7 x 4.2 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $260
Spring 2020

Several glass clear, colorless Topaz crystals in perfect condition are sticking out of a Quartz crystal matrix. From the Pegmatite of Sakangyi, which had been the source of the best of the Myanmar Topaz, but is now idle. In fine condition, this is a nice example of the occurrence and looks fine from several angles.
Cassiterite- gemmy crystals on matrix
stock #10.1-320
Ximeng County, Pu'er Prefecture
Yunnan, China
5.8 x 3.7 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Spring 2020

An nice older Chinese specimen of the dark transparent Cassiterites from Ximeng that are now very uncommon. These lustrous crystals on contrasting matrix show both twinned and untwinned forms. These are a dark brown to almost golden on some edges and are prettier in person. This find was unlike any other Cassiterites found in China, being more similar to the best from Bolivia, yet still recognizably different.
SOLD Quartz -yellow tips w. Halloysite inclusions
stock #SOLD 19.1-866
Cabiche, Municipio de Quipama
Boyaca, Colombia
5 x 3.7 x 2.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $0
Spring 2020

A choice and quite perfect example of the Yellow Tipped Quartz from the now famous find at Cabiche, Colombia. The Quartz crystals are gem clear with very bright yellow tips and a few wispy white inclusions near the terminations. The esthetics of the arrangement is very impressive in person and in exceptional condition as seen. This small find has been big news in the mineral world, this piece is far above average quality and about as fine a miniature as can be found.
Wardite -superb matrix crystals
stock #0769-JM-4030
Rapid Creek, Dawson Mining District
Yukon Territory, Canada
8.3 x 4.4 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $600
Spring 2020

From the noted John Marshall collection, this is an killer Wardite with fine, sharp and lustrous crystals perfectly arrayed in a distinct line. The Marshall collection card from 2003 states " Superb crystals on matrix, the display specimen in the British Museum is nowhere as good as this". Obtained from Gregory, Bottley and Lloyd, A great Wardite from anyplace the crystals reach 1.7 CM and are transparent in parts.
SOLD Quartz with Epidote inclusions
stock #SOLD 20.1-104
Cisneros, Mun. de Buenaventura
Valle del Cauca, Colombia
5.4 x 5 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Spring 2020

A stout Quartz crystal nested on and included by long crystals of dark green Epidote. The Quartz is a light milky green color but still transparent, the crystals of Epidote are clearly seen inside the Quartz. For ten years we have found occasional Quartz with Epidote from this region, but always badly damaged, still the potential looked exciting. This piece is from a new small find we were able to obtain in Colombia recently, these are by far the best specimens so far, this is a choice example. We hope for more in the future but that could be a long while!
Manganoneptunite with Pectolite
stock #AX-16-519
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
6.8 x 3.3 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $100
Spring 2020

A complex open vug in crystalized Albite hosts bright red gem clear Manganoneptunites along with Pectolite needles and Siderite, Rhodochrosite etc. While the individual crystals are best appreciated with magnification, this ihas color enough to be a display specimen, a good addition to any St Hillare suite. Often Manganoneptunites are dark, almost black or are crude crystals, but these are bright and perfectly formed.
