Titanite (sphene) twinned crystalswith minor dolomite
stock #11.1-W28
Dodo Mine, Prepolar Urals
Western Siberian Region, Russia
6.3 x 5.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $185


The better Titanites from the remote Dodo Mine have become quite rare in this size and quality. Sharp, lustrous and fairly translucent to transparent crystals show classic twinning and sit well perched on the matrix. The main crystals are in excellent condition, fully undamaged. There are small broken crystals on the matrix that can be seen with close inspection but are not distracting. This keeps the price down yet this still displays well.
Calcite enclosing Hematite (2 generations)
stock #11.1-37W
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.5 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $360


From a small find in the 1970's this calcite is very esthetic and colorful. The matrix is a sparkling white to light yellow druse of Calcite covered with hills of deep red to black drusy crystals. A single later generation clear crystal is perched on one side and all is well arranged and eyecatching. A very pretty display quality specimen that is uncommon, unusual, undamaged and still affordably priced.
