Quartz -included by Hedenbergite on Andradite
stock #18-AX-12-231
Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
4.7 x 3.1 x 3.7 CM (miniature)
price: $110
Late Summer 2018

A scepter-like Quartz rises from a matrix of tiny orange Andradite Garnets. The Quartz is a deep blue-green, being thickly included by Hedenbergite (some of which sticks out of the Quartz). In fine condition- a cute miniature with a nice contrast. choice specimen that is affordable and esthetic.
Azurite on Malachite
stock #18.1-406
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
2.4 x 2.1 x 1.7 (thumbnail)
price: $160
Late Summer 2018

Pretty thumbnail of lustrous Azurite on contrasting green Malachite. There were many Milpillas Azurites in the big finds that ended 3 years ago, this resulted in great opportunities for collectors to get very good pieces at abnormally low costs. This is such a piece with the bright color, sharp form and fine contrast. In excellent condition, looks good front and back.
Grossular -c lassic locale
stock #14.1-215
Asbest, Sverdlovskaya Oblast
Urals Region, Russia
6 x 5.7 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Late Summer 2018

A rich mass of Grossular Garnets on a Rodingite matrix from the famed Asbest deposit in the Urals. Some of the Grossular are gemmy and have good color as well. These are always being compared with the better known deposits in the town of Asbestos in Canada, and there are many similarities between the two. Perhaps the most striking difference is that there are very few fine Grossular from Asbest in collections, there are quite rare on the market and usually very small. This is super specimen for the locale. in great condition very lustrous and more impressive in person.
Smithsonite -Botryoidal, classic locale
stock #14.1-336
Lavrion
Attiki Prefecture Laurion District, Greece
5.7 x 3 x 2.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $240
Late Summer 2018

A choice Greek Smithsonite with deep color, bright luster and excellent form. In undamaged condition as seen, the fingers and globs of Smithsonite rise from a contrasting gossan matrix. This is from one of the oldest mineral localities on the planet, and is an attractive example of the orange-brown color. Nice sparkle in person.
