Fluorite on Dolomite
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
4.7 x 3.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
A sharp, remarkably transparent, glassy Fluorite cube is perched on a bed of dolomite crystals. From the near legendary Walworth Quarry, this is an unusually stepped cube in fine condition. A few smaller crystals are also on the same matrix. Colorless but in some light a faint hint of blue is noted.
A choice small cabinet specimen of blue Hemimorphite from Wenshan. Very nice sparkling luster and good blue color, this is similar to some older Mexican material. Sawn on the backside, the matrix also shows layered deposition and stacked vugs of Hemi. This is a very good piece from this current, prolific find. There are several lots of these on the market so the cost for a nice specimen is unusually low.
A nice Cassiterite is perched atop a quartz crystal matrix. Dark opaque black with good luster the condition is very good but there is some chipping on the front and contacts on the backside (not seen on display) From the unusual locale at Gaoligong Shan, a well developed Cassiterite.
