Quartz on Sphalerite and Galena
stock #8.1-394
Krushev Dol Mine, Madan, Rhodope Mts.
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
10.9 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $290


Impressive and lusterous, this is super esthetic! A cluster of very sharp undamaged Sphalerites reaching 2.7 CM are stacked in a very nice arrangement. The real interest are the sprays of delicate needle quartz. that decorate the piece and add lots of contrast. As a bonus there are some good Galenas as well. This can be displayed from several angles. Despite some damage to a few quartz needles, this is still a a top shelf piece from a very important location that is now closed.
Adamite (Spherical crystal aggregate)
stock #7 MEX 413
Ojuela Mine, Level 6, Municipio de Mapimi
Chihuahua, China
7 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $480


A Mexican classic! The Adamites of the Ojuela Mine are probably the worlds best. Many styles and colors are known, but almost nothing of quality has been found for many years. This type of ball aggregate is very desirable, getting hard to find and usually very expensive. On this one the large ball is 2.3 CM and well placed, it is fully crystallized with good green color. A flat spot on the top seems to be a contact but there is no damage anyplace. Quite esthetic and very well priced.
