Fluorite on Muscovite with Quartz
stock #11.1-W29
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
8.5 X 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1600

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!
Chlorargyrite/Iodargyrite exceptionally well crystallized
stock #0590-JM-2663
Proprietary Mine, Broken Hill, Yancowinna County
New South Wales, Australia
7.8 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450

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.
