stock #8AE-773
Wessels Mine, Hotazel, Northern Kalahari Mn Fields
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
3.2 x 2.5 x 1.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $100
Spring update

A rich mass of bright purple Sugilite crystals showing color zoning and packed together in bands in matrix. Mostly all Sugilite, this is an older specimen from Wessels Mine that is quite different than more recent materials.
Scorodite - gemmy crystals, very rich
stock #17.1-803
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
7.3 x 5.2 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Spring update

A very fine old time Scorodite plate with hundreds of sharp, transparent crystals to about 3mm thickly covering the display face. Far larger specimen than was typical with a dense coverage. From Bou Azer, this quality of material has not been found there for decades. No damage seen even at 30X magnification (which is very rare) and the crystals have a color range from a purplish- brown to greenish-blue. All are perfectly transparent with glassy luster. Formerly in the Chris Amo collection, choice.
Anhydrite with Calcite
stock #17.1-648
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.6 x 6.2 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Spring update

Exceptional quality and esthetics, these blue Anyhydite crystals in the flat blade form are dusted with small sparkling Calcites. Older specimen from Naica, that produced some of the worlds best Anhydrite crystals, now quite uncommon on the market and very rare in this quality. Sharp undamaged terminations and baby-blue color. The tiny Calcites are mostly colorless transparent, doubly terminated scalenohedrons but some have dark unknown inclusions as well. Ex Hitchings collection, this in an early 1960 vintage piece. Naica is now flooded and seems it will not again be worked.
Fluorite on Quartz, Classic locale, zoned crystals
stock #0525-JM-2770
Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
7 x 5.3 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Spring update

A fine old classic Freiburg Fluorite specimen ex. Yale and JH Marshall collections. The Fluorites are zoned with clear to deep purple colors and have rotated phantoms. Sharp corners and edges these are good condition despite some small bruising. Some old damage is on the Quartz some of which has rehealed, but this is overall quite fine and can be displayed (or trimmed) so damage is not noticable. Not typical of the majority of specimens we have seen, there are a few areas of crystallized Sulfides as well.
Dioptase w. Calcite, Duftite etc.
stock #13.1-257
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.3 x 3.8 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $330
Spring update

Super colorful multi-specie specimen from Tsumeb. In fine condition with excellent luster and sparkle throughout. The Calcite rhombs are dusted with micro crystals of Dioptase which gives a sugar cube texture but with emerald green color. Very good display impact in person.
