Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #17.1-AX- 21-052
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
4.6 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
An excellent, fine, delicate and colorful specimen of windowpane Wulfenite on matrix. A few tiny bits of Mimetite are found on close inspection. In incredible condition for such a delicate mineral, with good magnification I can find only one tiny chipped crystal that is out of sight anyway, essentially perfect. This was found in the last mining attempts at Rowley, that project is now finished and there may never be any more of these. A clean, classic and very esthetic specimen.
A sizable pure mass of Cuprite, nearly all crystallized with individual crystals reaching 1.5 CM. A few small vugs have some hairy Cuprite V. Chalcotrichite, in excellent condition overall, this is a rich specimen from a classic locality. Better in person.
Ilfeld, Nordhausen, Harz Mts
5.7 x 4.1 x 2 CM (cabinet)
A fine, old German Manganite with very lustrous metallic crystals. Looks good on all sides but the "front" is a bit better. Typical crystal habits reaching to 3.3 CM. Some contacts and breakage keeps the price very low for one of these classics yet this still displays quite well.
Fluorite -new find
Hameda, Jorf, Er Rachidia Province
7.9 x 5.8 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
Glassy bright yellow Fluorite with sharp transparent cubes in an esthetic cluster. From a new find in the Hamada area that has produced much better than previous specimens. Choice display specimen with distinctive habit and color. All of the main crystals are perfect, undamaged which is rare in a Moroccan Fluorite.
