Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF) classic locale
stock #17.1-694
Pulsifer Quarry, Mount Apatite District, Auburn
Maine, United States
2 x 1.3 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330
Pre Holiday 2017

A classic and esthetic Pulsifer Apatite with the distinctive habit crystals. From the vintage Terry Szenics mining project, there is minimal matrix here, mostly all purple Apatite with some minor Lepidolite. Much better than average with very good form and naked eye appeal but this is not a specimen for perfectionists. There is some edge wear and smaller crystals are chipped or broken on the base area. The price reflects this but still the overall quality is far better than typical. These Apatites are legendary, now very scarce in this level of quality.
Prehnite on Quartz
stock #17.1-695
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
9.7 x 7.7 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
Pre Holiday 2017

Balls of crystallized Prehnite (up to 2.5 CM) in perfect condition are set on a matrix of Quartz crystals. A few Quartz crystals have breaks but most are undamaged. From the Goboboseb mountains better known for their great Amethysts, this is a bright, colorful and lustrous piece in person.
Cerussite on Barite
stock #A-12-481
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.9 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $135
Pre Holiday 2017

One of the best values in todays mineral market are the Cerussites on orange Barite from Mibladen. This is a especially fine example with no damage, transparent and complete Cerussite crystals and a nice composition. Compared with a similar Cerussite from any other locale, these are super inexpensive and a good value. This specimen is quite above average with no issues or detractions.
