Brochantite (exceptional accicular crystals)
stock #10.1-260
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
6.6 x 4.6 x3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400


An extraordinary, delicate, electric green brochantite from what may be the best discovery ever of the species. In person the color is an intense emerald green deeper than can be rendered on most computer monitors. Perfect condition, strong esthetics and intense color make this piece stand out in any display. There have been only a few small pockets of Brochantite over the past few years at Milpillas which is far better known for incredible azurites. There have been very few fine specimens in these finds, and none recently. Without a doubt these will be regarded as some of the best of the specie ever seen, and are a fine affordable investment. This specimen can be shipped with special arrangements but it is far safer to deliver in person at a major show or by other arrangement.
Erythrite (fine crystals)
stock #12.1-003
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
5.3 x 3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $730


From the Wm. Pinch Collection, a superb small specimen. Bright lustrous, undamaged Erythrite crystals to 1.3 CM in size on contrasting matrix. The sharp dark purple-magenta colored prisms are gemmy and perfectly terminated. Really fine Bou Azzer Erythrites are the best ever found for the species, and far less expensive than lesser specimens from the old classic locations. A great value.
