Tanzanite (gem blue Zoisite)
stock #7AE-353
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
Manyara Region, Tanzania
2.2 x 1.4 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $350
Spring 2019

A Tanzanite crystal with excellent color change. This is well terminated, glassy deep blue to purple crystal in good condition. The tip of the termination is especially transparent and shows a nice blue "cloud" inside. The backside of the crystal shows a more complex area that has stepped faces and is likely a recrystallized contact. A nice specimen of the specie that is reasonably priced
SOLD Cuprosklowdowskite with Torbernite, Vandenbrandeite
stock #SOLD 10-AX-30-045
Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Western area
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
7.6 x 6.2 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $0

One of the most colorful and attractive of the Uranium minerals, the Copper rich version of Sklowdowskite. This one has the brilliant green needle crystals protected in a vug. The associated species are best seen with magnification but do add some contrast and color. From the famed mine of Musonoi in the Katanga Copper region that produced what are certainly the best examples of the specie more than 20 years ago, this is a good example that will not break the bank.
Enargite -Classic locale
stock #16.1-601
Leonard Mine, 3800 foot level, Butte
Montana, United States
5.2 x 4.8 x 3.9 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $380
Spring 2019

A cluster of unusually bright, lustrous and sharp Enargite crystals with a few small Pyrite and Quartz on the edges. In excellent undamaged condition with Enargites free standing up to 1.7 CM. A choice, classic Leonard Mine (Butte, Montana) specimen from the golden age of mining there. The flashy luster on this black Copper Sulphide is quite esthetic (and even attractive for a black mineral)compared with the more usual sooty black specimens.
