Epidote & Prehnite
5.9 x 4.6 x 3 CM (cabinet)
The Mali Prehnites with Epidote can be wonderfully esthetic and this is great example of fine form and color. Even though the location has been very productive for a few years it now seems to be tapering off. The better pieces from this find are destined to appreciate and become classics. Meanwhile this is quite affordable for such a pretty and pristine specimen.
Wenshan County, Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture
9 x 7 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
A rich and very colorful example of the Hemimorphite from the earliest find at Wenshan. The form and condition are excellent and the more recent finds did not have this habit. Nice blue-green Hemimorphites from classic locales can be very expensive but the better Chinese specimens are often more attractive with much less cost
Rhodochrosite on Fluorite
Lame (Lamo) Zn-CU deposit, Dachang, Nandan, Hechi Prefecture
Guangxi Autonomous Region,
4.8 x 3.5 x 2.5 (miniature)
A very pretty, unusual Rhodochrosite from an unusual locale. Crystals perched on delicate clusters of small Fluorites, all of which are growing on Quartz crystals in an esthetic array. Fine condition and with great display qualities, this is a very fine miniature and far better in person.
