Adamite and Calcite
stock #8 MEX 631
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
9.4 x 4.4 (cabinet)
price: $250


Unusual and attractive esthetics! A well crystalized Adamite cluster rises from a matrix of gossan that holds a sparkling calcite vug. Good contrast and overall appeal, the color of the Adamite is a rich lemon-green. Some unidentified micro crystals are on the reverse side are a bonus.
Spinel (large twinned crystal)
stock #8 DK-155
Luc Yen
Yen Bai Province, Vietnam
5.1 x 4.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $680


Sharp. lusterous and with deep purple-red color, this is a fine Spinel with strong form. Gemmy with glass-like surfaces, the transparency is above average for such a large crystal. The faces alternate from a melted or rounded form to sharp prismatic. The crystal shows well "spinel twinning" and is exceptionally sharp for its size. No damage, displays well.
Dioptase with Calcite,Duftite and Arsenotsumebite
stock #9.1-169
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.7 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $250


Brilliant, deep emerald green Dioptase sparkles on a contrasting multicolored matrix. There are several different micro crystals covering the specimen. A very pretty yet affordable miniature from this classic locale. No damage, fantastic color.
Cuprite and Copper
stock #9.1-030
Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts., Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
6.6 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $650


A beautiful, scuptural specimen of well developed Cuprite decorating branching native copper. The Cuprite has excellent fresh red color and shows both single octahedra and flattened elongated octahedra in chains to over 2.5 CM. Individual crystals show bright glassy faces and the whole has a super esthetic form. Bisbee Cuprites are rarely this attractive.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF) on Muscovite
stock #6.2-093
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.6 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


A fine, bright and glassy Apatite CaF sits esthetically in a nest of Muscovite. From the high elevation locality of Xuebaoding best known for great Scheelites, these are now very hard to find in such good condition. The main crystal is over 2 CM across (this is large for the locality) and has excellent pink-violet color. Strongly fluorescent and gemmy, a very attractive example.
