Azurite- electric blue with Cerussite
stock #ALEC-27-085
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
3.5 x 1.7 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

A bright sharp, gemmy electric blue Azurite from the long gone but fondly remembered finds at Touissit. This is mostly all Azurite, but there are some small Cerussites sticking out in a few spots. The Cerussites do have damage but the Azurite (which is the main focus) is in great shape with sharp prismatic terminations. Far better in person, a fine yet affordable piece.
Vesuvianite -Purple phantom
stock #17.AL-500
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.5 x 3.5 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An especially bright and lustrous specimen of gemmy Vesuvianite with rare phantoms of deep purple enclosed by a lighter green exterior. In very good (but not absolutely perfect condition), what looks like damage in the photos is actually reflections inside these glass- clear crystals. There is some outside edge damage and contacts/ chipping that can be best seen with magnification, so not for ultra perfectionists, but this habit with bright color phantom is very rare. This is an excellent example.
Fluorite on Galena
stock #15.1-092
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.6 x 4.2 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $80
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, clear example of the classic Naica Mine Fluorite with beveled edge cubes on contrasting Galena. Some back edge chips are noted so this is priced to be especially affordable but it displays like a much more expensive piece.
Shattuckite with Malachite
stock #ALEC-4-285
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
11.2 x 6.4 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $3250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An intense color, well crystalized large Shattuckite with fine malachite sprays and sparkling luster. One of the nicest of this style, this displays well from any angle, and the color is very much "electric". This find produced the best Shattuckites ever seen and this is an especially choice example. Much more three dimensional than most and with great display impact, in fine condition. On close exam many small doubly terminated Quartz crystals are seen that are a brilliant blue color from included Shattuckite and add a lot of flash. Compared to other fine pieces this is a great value.
