Beryl V. Goshenite on Muscovite with Albite
stock #7.AE-462
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.2 x 5.3 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

Unusually gem clear, free standing Beryl crystal from this world class locale. The main crystal is sharp and undamaged, a few wispy veils are seen inside from some angles. A very faint hint of blue is noted but this is essentially colorless Beryl (Goshenite) which is surprisingly rare. Sawn on the underside as is usual for collecting these, it sits well on the flat base.
Actinolite pseudo after Diopside (Uralite)
stock #8.AE-736
Calumet Mine, Turret District, Chaffee County
Colorado, United States
8.8 x 5.2 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $240
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very well documented and fine Colorado classic piece, this comes with 5 old labels, one of which notes: Collected in 1946 by C.G. Coil. Clarence Coil was a significant figure in Colorado Mineralogy. Well formed, terminated crystals are on several sides and in one large vug. This was in many collections over the years, including Elberto Tealdi (Milan, Italy) and Richard Kosnar. The esthetics and satiny luster in person show why it was included in these fine collections.
