Kammererite with Zaratite
stock #13.1-251
Kop Krom Mine, Kop Daglari
East Anatolia, Turkey
5.5 x 3.6 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Intense color and in excellent condition, a rich specimen of well crystallized Kammererite. The Kop Krom mine has produced by far the best examples of this rare Chrome Clinochlore, this piece also has a druze of tiny Zaratite crystals best seen under magnification. The Kammererite crystals on this piece are not the typical plates or druse, they are sharp, prismatic and well exposed on the matrix. Hard to find in this quality.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF)- classic locale
stock #14.1-078
Nevel Quarry, Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
10.9 x 7.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
pre Tucson 2015 update

A large cabinet sized matrix of quartz and mixed pegmatite that hosts a dense mass of interlocked purple Apatite crystals. From the famed Nevel Quarry in Maine that is more famed for fine Tourmalines. The sharp and glassy crystals reach over 9mm but most are about 5-6 in size. The color is a good medium purple that is lighter than from the nearby Pulsifer Quarry. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare from the Nevel and this one also has a few tiny unidentified Phosphate crystals as well. Minor bruises are seen with magnification and some cracks are noted in the matrix yet the naked eye display is excellent.
Rhodochrosite with Acanthite and Fluorite, Quartz, Pyrite and Sphalerite
stock #ALEC_22-062
Wutong Mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh Pref.
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
4.8 X 3.5 X 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1350
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine, high impact specimen with well formed red rhombs (up to 2.2 CM) offset with branching crystallized Acanthite. This specimen shows very well the combination of Sulphide species that were associated with this remarkable find of Rhodochrosite. Excellent condition and form, this can be displayed from several angles.
