Fluorite on Albite w. Muscovite
stock #17.1-AX 18-219
Skardu District
Gilgit, Northern Areas, Pakistan
4.9 x 3.4 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $520
new june 17

A choice alpine gemmy sea-green octahedron of Fluorite nicely perched on Pegmatite matrix. From the Skardu area of Pakistan, this is more transparent and with deeper green hue than is usually seen. There is a small clean repair on the matrix but the Fluorite is not repaired. Overall in fine condition, the Fluorite has some adhering mica and contacts but no damage. The overall esthetics on this are excellent. Some faces of the Fluorite show more complex growth structures. The photos here are not backlit at all but glows impressively when lit that way.
Duftite on Calcite
stock #17.1-AX-14-309
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
9.8 x 7 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400
new june 17

A striking cabinet sized plate of sharp Calcite crystals almost totally encrusted with bright sparkling Duftite micro crystals. In exceptional undamaged condition, Duftite is rare in good display quality specimens but this is a very fine and colorful piece. The individual crystals are more distinct and larger than the more typical Tsumeb smudges. Classic form for the underlying Calcite there is some selective coating noted but overall very little of the white calcite is exposed. Choice.
