A simple esthetic arrangement of Schorl and Fluorite on a plate of tiny Microcline crystals. Nice color contrast, excellent condition and an affordable cute display miniature.
Fluorite in Quartz
stock #8.AE 893
Miandrivazo Dept. Menabe region, Tulear
8.3 x 2.3 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
A sharp Quartz prism hosting many small crystals of purple/blue Fluorite from the find about 12 years ago. Now quite rare but when these were available most were much smaller, damaged and had some faces lapped or ground to show the inclusions. This is fully natural, in good condition and quite large. The Fluorite inclusions are easily seen and the surfaces are nicely etched with geometric patterns visible with magnification.
Cubanite twinned crystals
1.6 x 1.2 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
A sharp and lustrous thumbnail in exceptional condition. Clean twinned crystals with classic form and bright striations. Classic material from the Henderson #2 mine at Chibougamou which has been closed for years but once produced the finest Cubanites ever seen. Good value for form and quality.
A remarkable series of colorful, sharp and lustrous Anglesites reaching 3.1 CM in a stacked cluster. Matrix includes Balydonite and Mimetite among other unidentified species. The Anglesites show the bi-pyramidal form and have yellow, greenish and orange-brown inclusions along with typical milky white areas. Both unusual and very attractive, an outstanding lead secondary specimen from the amazing Tsumeb!
