There are thousands of fluorites from the great Yaoganxian Mine, but very few are of this calibre. Incredible quality for the size and perfection. A single 4 CM glass clear, undamaged zoned cube sits on a 3 dimensional matrix perfectly. Top quality esthetics far better in person! This stands out from the rest and while it is a bit more pricey than average specimens, this quality is almost impossible to find in China today. The only comparable specimen I saw recently at a show was well over twice this price!
An early Pala, California piece ex John Marshall and C. Goodspeed collections. This specimen is well over 80 years old. In pristine condition with a classic well etched termination and gem clear with very pale color. Very cute classic crystal that is also affordable.
Ex Yale University collection and JH Marshall. An exceptional old classic specimen! A big, showy, well crystallized and heavy specimen of these rare Silver Chloride/Iodide species. Broken hill has produced the very finest of these minerals and both species are well presented in crystals up to 4mm densely packed. A rich yellow to waxy green color, the specimen is sawn on the backside and shows the matrix as a pure translucent green Mass. The old Yale labels (included) call this Cerargyrite which was in use in the 1950s and earlier. Far better in person and price well below the tags we have seen on many lesser pieces.
