Fluorite with Sphalerite
stock #18-AX-14B-009
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
10.2 x 8.6 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Spring update

Classic Elmwood purple Fluorite on Sphalerite in a very three dimensional piece. Most cubes show good zoning as well with color from very deep purple to some pale violet nearing white. Some corner cleaves are here, but most all the cubes are complete and perfect. Due to the cubes being well above the matrix base most also pass light very well which makes a bright presentation. This looks like a much more expensive specimen but the cleaves keep it reasonable. Now that the mine is closed these are the last of Midwestern US Fluorites and are sadly missed in the mineral world.
Rhodochrosite -Scalenohedral crystals on Quartz
stock #18.1-172
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
4.7 x 3.8 x 4.4 CM (miniature)
price: $1550
Spring update

Dramatic miniature with brilliant deep red gemmy Scaleneohedral Rhodos in perfect condition. An outstanding Uchucchacua piece with top luster and form. No chips, dings or cleaves even under strong magnification, which is very rare. Older specimen that is much better in person, this may remind you of a fine Wessels mine specimen. A very choice, competition grade miniature.
Prehnite crystals -Vintage Swiss
stock #16.1-168
Muotta Naira, Piz Lai BlauNalps Valley, Tujetsch, Vorderrhein
Grischun (Grisons), Switzerland
11.3 x 6.4 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Spring update

A matrix plate with clear light green Prehnite crystals to 1.4 CM scattered with smaller Prehnites and some tiny Epidote and Byssolite. Classic specimen, ex Charles Noll collection and a much older label from an unknown collection. In fine condition overall, the main crystals are pristine. Some crystals are also on the underside but the view shown is the logical display face.
