Calcite- classic locale clear crystals
stock #17AX-794(A10)
Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
7 x 5.4 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Late Summer 2018

English classic Calcite crystals on a gossan Matrix. Glass clear and lustrous as these are supposed to be. These Egremont Calcites from the West Cumberland Iron fields were mostly being found in the 19th century or earlier, they are highly respected. On this piece there are a few cleaves and a recrystallized old break, this keeps the price lower, but none of these are easily seen on display. Ex Ruth and Andy Palmer, these clear Calcites are only available from the dispersal of old collections.
Tremolite- prismatic crystals on matrix.
stock #18-AX-35-187
Pierrpont, St. Lawrence County
New York, United States
5.1 x 3.9 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $290
Late Summer 2018

Tremolite crystal in a sharp prismatic form nicely exposed on matrix. Ex S. Alverson Collection, this was collected over 25 years ago. The most prominent crystal is doubly-terminated and there are a few lesser crystals on the matrix as well. This find was not the well known Selleck road location but a small prospect that was kept private and never published. The color on this piece is a lighter hue of green than the Selleck material. Choice.
Cerussite with Caledonite and Linarite on Fluorite
stock #18.1-359
Grand Reef Mine - Graham County
Arizona, United States
7.1 x 4.6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Late Summer 2018

Twined Cerussites contrast with an unusual matrix of small dark purple Fluorites. The Cerussites have a few blue inclusions but are mostly whitish. The matrix has several small zones of Caledonite and Linarite. Grand Reef has produced some excellent Lead secondary minerals and is a modern classic locale. This piece looks nice by naked eye but with strong magnification the details are very impressive.
