Tourmaline (Elbaite- Liddicoatite series)
stock #9.1-371
Nujiang Valley (Gaoligong Mountains/ Gaoligongshan), Nujiang
Yunnan Province, China
4.4 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $80


From a find about 12 years ago in Yunnan province, China. Pink Tourmalines with redder caps that came from the pegmatites of Gaoligong Shan it what seems to have been a mix of Elbaite and Liddiacoatite perhaps in zones. This piece ishows the typical morpholgy of the find and has a nice bubble gum color. The outer edges have contacts and chipping but there are several complet terminated crystals with no damage, the largest being 1 CM tall.
Amethyst scepter
stock #A7-468-(1018)
Deer Hill locality, DeerHill, Stow, Oxford County
Maine, United States
3 x 1.5 x 12 CM (thumbnail)
price: $75


Thumbnail sceptered Amethyst with zoning and a deep purple cap. Ex Larry White thumbnail collection, a nice example from this classic Oxford County Maine (USA) locality that is better known for very large crystals, good thumbnails are quite rare. The condition is excellent.
Cuprite with Malachite
stock #20.1-318-(LW494)
Kambove
Haut-Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
2.4 x 2.3 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90


A cluster of dark red Cuprite crystals with tufts of fibrous Malachite. Some minor contacting on the back but the front and sides are quite fine with no visible damage. The Cuprites are translucent and if backlit will glow to a bright cherry-red. A nice thumbnail from a modern classic locality.
Rurile in Quartz
stock #20.1-316
Binnenthal
Valais, Switzerland
4.1 x 2.8 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $40


Sagenite type Rutile inside Quartz from the Binn Valley. Classic alpine specimen that has been recrystallized on the bottom and back. A few bruises are noted but still displays OK and is very reasonable in price for a an old Swiss specimen. Older labels with no collection attribution are also included.
Copper - spinel twin
stock #20.1-304-(LW631)
Ray Mine, Ray District, Dripping Springs Mountain, Pinal county
Arizona, United States
2.8 x .9 x .5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90


Slender, elongated spinel twins of Copper from this classic USA locality. This looks fine from all angles; it comes from the Larry White thumbnail collection. A good example for the location and a choice thumbnail.
Copper - branching crystals
stock #20.1-305-(LW1019)
Santa Rita, Grant County
New Mexico, United States
3.3 x 2.6 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $65


A complex branching Copper specimen composed of many small crystals in stacked or aligned arrangements. Good patina, the color ranges from a dark that is almost black to a red copper hue. A multitude of tiny crystals in many divergent habits are best appreciated under magnification.
Schorl with Cleavelandite
stock #20.1-299-(LW1122)
Urucum Mine, Galileia
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.4 x 2.6 x 1.7 CM (thumbnail)
price: $80


A "candelabra" style specimen of slender Tourmalines in a pretty arrangement offset by well-crystallized Cleavelandite. This will fit in a thumbnail box (barely) and has very nice contrast. Originally labeled as an Elbaite, but on close study it is a Schorl. Ex Larry White collection he obtained it from the Brauns in 1975. I do not see many attractive Schorl of this sort and never in thumbnail size. While not a rare specie it is surprisingly rare to see in thumbnail collections.
Barite (Baryte)
stock #20.1-297
Mefis, Taouz, Errachidia Province
Draa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.3 x 3.3 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $90


Glassy and transparent, a thick tabular habit Barite with inclusions. This find a few years ago produced some large crystals that were mostly milky and somewhat crude. We obtained a few that were more sharp, defined and clear though smaller than average from the find. These sold quickly but we have this piece back via a collection purchase. This is one of the best.
