Fluorite with phantom zoning
stock #17.1-538
Okorusu Mine, Otjiwarango District
Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
5.7 x 4.3 x 3.7 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $290
Spring 2020

Gemmy Fluorite cubes of blue-green color in a cluster on minimal matrix from Okorusu. This Fluorite has well defined inner phantoms of a darker violet-blue color and some cubes have a thin color zone extra near the outer edge. This specimen displays well from either side. The main crystals are prominent, sharp and clean, the only damage seen is minor on the outer edges where this was removed. Most Okorusu Fluorites are damaged, or the crystals are very tightly packed together, this is a nice exception. The mine has been inactive now for about three years and may be gone forever.
Smithsonite
stock #17.1-614
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinaloa, Mexico
6.2 x 3.9 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
Spring 2020

"Wet-look" luster on bubble-gum pink Smithsonite from Choix. In undamaged condition, this is from the early finds made by Benny Fenn. This locality in Sinaloa is not currently producing, it has however in the past yielded many great colors and forms of Smithsonite. This is a good clean small cabinet size that shows the color and habit well. A thick layer with nice luster shows the inner structure on the edges.
