Silver - wire mass
stock #9.1-022
Dzhezkazgan Mining District
Zhezgazghan Oblysy, Kazakhstan
4.8 x 3.1 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $780
Spring 2020

A choice, dense mass of thick and thin wires (some flattened) forming a cluster of curls. From finds about 20 years ago in Kazakhstan, this is a far better than typical specimen with good form, character and a nice dark patina. Ex Ernie Schlichter, these are just not seen anymore and are quite distinctive, a very nice Silver with classic form.
Elbaite (doubly terminated) on Cleavelandite
stock #10.1-294
Paprok, Kamdesh District
Nuristan, Afghanistan
5 x 4.9 x 4.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $560
Spring 2020

A well exposed complete doubly terminated Elbaite crystal with a pink termination on one end and a flat blue cap on the other end. In fine condition from the famed Paprock pegmatite, this has several color zones and gradations along the length of the crystal. Magnification shows some needle inclusions that look like Byssolite. A choice older Paprock specimen in good shape and nicer in person.
Azurite - rosette nodule
stock #8.AE-1015
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.6 x 4.4 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $240
Spring 2020

From the brief attempt to reopen the great Tsumeb mine for specimen extraction this is a fine example of a rosette nodule. From the 5.1 sublevel of the west 4 stope this specimen shows unusually large crystal blades and classic radiating form that is much more distinct than were most that were found. In fine condition, complete and quite unlike most of the Azurite from Tsumeb.
SOLD Grossular -
stock #SOLD 13.1-151
Sierra de la Cruz, Municipio de Sierra Mojada
Coahuila, Mexico
5.7 x 3.9 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Spring 2020

A super piece with crystals over 2 CM across that are well exposed and present a very three dimensional effect. In very good condition overall the main crystals are all complete, undamaged and have just a few contacts. The color is top for the locale, a deep cranberry red with hints of purple tones. The Garnets contrast well with the white matrix. This locale has not produced anything for a few years, and is now a modern classic. The color and habit of these Grossular is unique.
