stock #8.1-219
Piaotang, Dayu
Yunnan, China
4.5x3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $600

Sharp and glassy Euclase on matrix to 1.4 CM. A great example from this small one time find. These were the best Chinese examples of this rare Berylium gem mineral. The crystals have some micro cavities on a few faces with unknown black materials inside. Good condition in general, there are broken and damaged crystals on the edges and back the display side looks fine to the unaided eye.
Bournonite with Fluorite
stock #7 -CNA-442
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
5x3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $650

An exceptionally large metallic crystal, sharp, lusterous and with fine termination. As a bonus it is sprinkled with lotss of small light violet fluorites for an extra sparkle. In very good condition overall though there are some small spots of damage that are very forgivable in a crystal of this size and can be minimized with careful display. This is FAR better than average and really shines!
stock #7 CNA-424
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
10x6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $650

Way better than most, this is a glassy, lustrous and sharp chain of gemmy Scheelites (largest is 4.6 CM) That really glows with any backlighting. Lots of gemmy areas with all of the display side and most of the back damage free. Displays well from several angles. Formerly in the Mike Walter collection.
Magnetite on Matrix
stock #7 CNA-435
Gaoligong Shan, Baoshan Prefecture
Yunnan, China
10.8 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450

A huge 8 CM magnetite "stretched" octahedron sits on top of a pegmatite matrix that has several other fine magnetites. Super esthetic and with great patina on the display faces this is the best Chinese Magnetite I have seen. The faces show well defined growth hillocks and the "front" as I see it is damage free, there is a contact on the back side. Impressive for any magnetite and incredible from China!
