Diopside -large fine single crystal
stock #8AE-077A
Orford Nickel Mine, Brompton Lake, Sherbrooke
Quebec, Canada
7.1 x 2 x 1 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Spring update

A very big blocky Diopside crystal that is a perfectly formed, has a good color and some translucence. Ex Steve Chamberlain, A. Edwards, and Canning collections, this is remarkably perfect, undamaged and about as clean as can be. Several faces show complex growth patters and have a nice silky luster. Choice for the specie and excellent for the locale.
Pyromorphite -Hoppered crystals, classic locale
stock #13.1-075
Les Farges, Correze
Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France
2.8 x 2.4 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $300
Spring update

Excellent stacked hoppered crystals in fine condition with contrasting yellow-green terminations. The branching "V" of the two main crystal arms show off the elongated crystal structures well. Older specimen from Les Farges the crystals reach to 2.5 CM freestanding which is large for the locality. The color ranges from olive green to a mustard color and has orange hues under some lights. Strong display despite the small size
Grossular- isolated gem crystals
stock #18.1-106
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2.3 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $480
Spring update

Perfect isolated gem clear garnets nested on contrasting matrix. This large thumbnail shows exactly the form and habit that is most desired from Jeffrey mine. This sort of isolation and quality have become iconic specimens in larger sizes. Those larger plates are rare and coveted, they sell for mid 6 figures. This is a scaled down model of that style of specimen, choice and esthetic but smaller and far less costly.
Fluorite- Zoned classic
stock #18.1-107
Annabel Lee Mine, Bethel Level, North End, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.5 x 6.1 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
Spring update

Great zoning of orange/yellow to purple cubes with very fine translucency. Classic old specimen from the Anabelle Lee mine in a complex cluster of jumbled elongated cubes that displays well on several angles. Small edge bruises and etched contacts keep this from being a super expensive specimen, but it is forgivable with such rich color, habit and geometry. Relatively affordable, beautiful and classic.
