Cuprian Adamite
stock #Alec 9-097
Kamareza, Laviron Mines,
Attiki Prefecture Laurion District, Greece
9.1 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Spring 2013

From one of the earth's oldest mineral localities this is a pretty, bright color densely crystallized plate of Cuprian Adamite. In outstanding condition, this thin plate hosts hundreds of perfect crystals. With 10x magification I can find only 2 tiny bumps. A classic locality piece with top color.
Legrandite
stock #Alec-12-500
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.5 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $480
Spring 2013

One of the most desirable rare minerals from Ojuela, Legrandite well displayed in a radiating burst of distinctive yellow. This is filling a shallow pocket in the gossan matrix,2.8 CM across. Several prismatic crystals are compleet here but there are several broken ones too (legrandite is especially brittle and and there are almost no specimens of any size without some damage). Despite the damage this is still well above average. None has been found for over 20 years now, this is an early piece last sold in the 1970s.
