Creedite
stock #19.1-756
Mina Navidad, Abasolo, Rodeo
Durango, Mexico
5.2 x 3.2 x 3.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $180


Radiating cluster of very distinct Creedite crystals that are free standing, reaching nearly 3 CM tall. Aside from the much larger than usual crystals, this has very rich color, some transparency and fine luster. Mina Navidad has been the source of nearly all good orange Creedites, a mineral usually colorless or brown (rarely purple) and usually in much smaller crystals. This is far above average miniature, excellent for the size and especially esthetic.
Rutilated Quartz and Hematite
stock #13.1-175
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
3.8 x 2.4 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $190


A cute toenail sized rutilated Quartz that sits on bladed Hematite crystals that are also Rutilated. The Rutile hairs are bright golden color and very sharp, clearly seen both inside and out of the Quartz. Rutile on Hematite and Rutile inside Quartz are both often available, but it is quite uncommon to see both together like this.
Wulfenite "windowpane" type
stock #19.1-994
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
1.8 x 1.6 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160


A smaller thumbnail that has a super presentation. Two main Wulfenite windows are nicely perched on a sliver of crystalized Calcite matrix. Very tiny balls of red Mimetite add color so that at certain angles the Wulfenites are a more reddish or yellow depending on the perspective. In fine condition as seen, this looks great from several angles. The Rowley mine tended to have smaller and more delicate Wulfenites but they could be incredibly esthetic. A choice little piece with more display impact than might be expected.
Kinoite with Apophyllite
stock #17.1-271
Christmas Mine, Dripping Springs Mountains, Gila County
Arizona, United States
6.5 x 5.5 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $180


Royal blue Kinoite like this is best known in specimens from the Christmas Mine, it is rather rare elsewhere and almost only known as micro specimens. This piece is a very choice example with a good, dense coverage of brilliant blue crystals associated with clear colorless cubes of Apophyllite. This Calcium Copper Silicate is never found in large crystals but sometimes the clusters are rich enough (like on this piece) to be eyecatching from a distance. Far better than average, there are several separate vugs on different sides of this matrix and the crystals under magnification are especially brilliant.
Adamite
stock #17.1-616
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.3 x 3.2 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $130


Bright lemon-green color Adamite crystals with grading to colorless near their base. These are sharp and lustrous with very good relief from the matrix. Ojuela has produced vast numbers of Adamites in many hues and habits, these are modern classiocs and quite affordable compared to the mineral from anyplace else. A sparkling miniature of well developed crystals and choice, less common color.
Fluorite- Pink
stock #19.1-677
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
2.2 x 1.4 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $240


A choice little thumbnail cluster of light pink transparent Fluorites. From the important new find at Huangang, these clear octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite clearly seen inside. The specimen is a chain of 4 discrete complete Octas with no matrix. Can be displayed in any orientation. This was a large find at Huangang but this level of quality was very rare, perhaps 1 in 100 pieces at best. This style of Fluorite is unique, absolutely unlike the pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted but the interiors are very clear with good color. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices affordable this is certainly the right time to get a choice piece. Better in person.
Fluorite -Pink Octahedral with inclusions
stock #19.1-676
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
1.8 x 1.2 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $220


From the great new finds at Huangang, this is a perfect thumbnail of two light pink octahedral crystals. The crystals are nicely juxtaposed and the whole is a small but esthetic piece of high quality. These transparent octahedrons are included by fibers of an Asbestos like mineral, perhaps Byssolite. The condition of this is perfect on all sides, each corner and edge is undamaged. This was a very large and impressive find but this level of perfection was very rare, perhaps 1 in 100 pieces at best. This style of Fluorite is quite unique and absolutely unlike any pinks from any other locality. The faces are lightly frosted but the interiors are very clear and the included fibers are easily seen. The large number of specimens recovered has helped keep the prices very affordable this is certainly the right time to get a choice piece.
