Rhodochrosite with Polylithonite, Aegerine etc
stock #17.1-660
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
2.7 x 2.6 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $475
Dec 2018

A neat variation of classic form from Mt St Hillaire, the flattened triangular Rhodochrosite Rhomb with some extra faces. This specimen here also has several tiny "normal" Rhodo rhombs. Lots of micro crystals on some faces and edges, including Polylithonite. In perfect condition by naked eye, only at 30X magnification are some rough spots found as is a secondary coating in a few spots. Displays well from most any angle, this is good looking on either side. An attractive large thumbnail.
Chromian Wulfenite
stock #18.1-621
Chapacase Mine, Tacopillia Dist, Tacopilla Province
Antofagasta Region, Chile
2.5 x 1.7 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $110
Dec 2018

A choice, rare example of the deep red Chromian variety of Wulfenite. Known from just three localities, the best specimens have all come from finds over 20 years ago in Chile. This piece is from those finds and shows classic form micro crystals on all sides of the matrix. Especially brilliant under the microscope this is in good condition and has well formed crystals with several habits densely encrusting. No eye visible damage but some micro chipping is found with 20X magnification on a few of the many otherwise perfect crystals.
Barite (Barytes) large transparent crystal
stock #18-AX-16-553
Marcil Quarry, Sainte-Lotilde-de-Chateauguay, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
5 x 2.6 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $250
Dec 2018

A large glass clear Barite crystal that is complete and perfectly transparent. In very good condition and complete except on the bottom, this has a faden-like line seen in the center of the prism. Sharp and lustrous, a choice example from this less well known mine.
