Mimetite
stock #10.1-334
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong, China
4.9 x 3.2 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Spring 2014

A very showy, dense cluster of glassy Mimetite crystals with minimal matrix. This is the quality of Mimetite that made Pingtouling world famous. The individual crystals reach 1.6 CM and are quite transparent with a rich yellow to orange color range. In very fine condition damagewise, some slight chipping can be found on the "underside" and is not visible from most views. This find was finished by 2003, and is considered (along with Tsumeb's gem pocket) as the worlds best for the species. Displays well from several sides. Good examples like this one are now quite uncommon.
Anglesite (Gemmy with natural color)
stock #Alec 18-015
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
5.8 x 4.5 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450
Spring 2014

An esthetic, super clear, razor sharp and untreated (natural color) Anglesite. From the great finds in 1980-90 at Touissit, these are now regarded as the worlds best for the specie. Far better in person this is a delicate light greenish yellow hue and from some angles shows fine internal rainbows. Undamaged by naked eye, very tiny chips can be found only with 20X magnification, this is virtually perfect and quite impressive for this very fragile mineral!
