SOLD Topaz & Quartz
stock #SOLD ALEC-12-214
Gilgit, Gilgit district
6.2 x 4.9 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
Superb, absolutely gem clear Topaz crystals with glasslike luster sprout from the quartz crystal matrix. Outstanding condition and esthetic form. From the Gilgit area that has produced so much great Topaz, this has just a slight hint of color.
Autunite (fine xls)
stock #17.1- A10-060
Daybreak Mine, Spokane County
5.3 x 3.8 x 1.5 CM (cabinet)
An outstanding, classic Daybreak mine Autunite. Bright green to yellow green crystals in fine condition in clusters and radiating sprays. Vivid fluorescence. In excellent condition which is rare for this delicate mineral, this can be displayed from several angles. Choice.
Big and very lustrous Axinite crystals reaching 6.7 CM in size, with razor sharp edges. Transparent on the edges and translucent elsewhere, this is an older, flashy and eyecatching specimen. These have become quite rare (and very expensive) over the past decade or so, this size and quality was never common even then. Now considered a classic find, this example is a relative bargain. Some slight chipping but far less than most do and displayable without being noticable.
Wulfenite with minor Mimetite
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
2.2 x 2 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
Well formed, esthetic and choice, these Wulfenite crystals have textbook form. From the final mining of this classic locale, this is in fine condition. A dusting of micro Mimetites and tiny balls gives some faces a slightly matte look, others are extra lustrous. A few crystals also show inclusions of the orange red Mimetite balls.
