Celestine -floater cluster
stock #0223-JM-0223
Clay Center, Ottawa County
Ohio, United States
9 x 8.2 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Post Tucson 2015

Ex John Marshall Collection, a fine zoned blue Celestite that has no attachment point, it is crystallized all around. The individual crystals reach 3.5 CM and are sharp with sky blue cores. Vintage 1970's undamaged from a now classic locale. Clay center still sometimes produces a few good specimens but this quality is not typical, the color is a little more vivid in person.
Quartz- Red incusioons of Hematite
stock #ALEC-11-408
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
4.7 x 3.1 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $380
Post Tucson 2015

A classic Orange river Quartz on matrix that has excellent esthetics, form and condition. Deep orange red color with good transparency, this is much better than typical for this fantastic locality. One attached crystal that is on the "backside" has damage, that is not seen on display. The main crystal is perfect.
Hubeite and Inesite (very fine, type locality)
stock #ALEC-15-131
Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper Mine), Edong District, Daye County, Huangs
Hubei, China
12.6 x 11.9 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Post Tucson 2015

A superb Hubeite specimen. This is a fine, large and impressive plate fully crystallized by sharp transparent Inesites and darker brown red Hubeites. This Hubeite is especially good as it is very sharply formed, densely packed and in much larger than usual crystals. All in all this is showy and damage free which is remarkable for such delicate minerals.
Datolite
stock #15.1-413
Verhniy mine, Dalngorsk
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
6.5 x 6.3 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Post Tucson 2015

An attractive, fine specimen of older Dalngorsk Datolites. Transparent lustrous crystals with orange-brown phantoms in greenish prisms cover the matrix in an esthetic arrangement. Individual crystals are up to 2.9 CM, this sort of Datolite was rare when first found, and has not been available for several year.
Bixbyite, Pseudobrookite & Topaz
stock #A7-026-1356
Thomas Range, Juab County,
Utah, United States
4.6 x 3.4 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $220
Post Tucson 2015

From the Thomas Mountains a multi-species specimen with nice esthetics. This could be trimmed to thumbnail size but I like it as is. Fine condition, although with magnification some small contacts are noted on the Bixbite. It is not common to see all these species on the same matrix in close proximity.
Spessartine over Orthoclase
stock #ALEC-12-426
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
11.6 x 9.9 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $580
Post Tucson 2015

A big bright Spessartine garnet plate in which the original matrix of blocky Orthoclase crystals are now covered with bright sparkling garnets. Wonderful form, great condition with deep color, good luster and lots of sparkle. This quality was never common when Tongbei was productive, it is all but completely exhausted now. A future classic and likely to appreciate quickly.
Pyrolusite /Hausmannite pseudo after Manganite
stock #ALEC-10-857
Ilmenau
Thuringia, Germany
7.8 x 4.3 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Post Tucson 2015

A very old piece formerly from collections of Ara Dildalion and William Hladysz, but likely far older. The forms of the original Manganite crystals are very clearly seen are are up to 6.8 C. The luster of the piece is overall a dull "sooty" black but some faces and terminations have a shiny black luster as well. This region is the source of the great classic Manganites that are especially sought after. This sort of Psuedomorph is not especially pretty but they are rare and this one has especially good form
Spinel -Classic old locale
stock #15.1-168
Amity, Orange County
New York, United States
3.3 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $250
Post Tucson 2015

A very good example of Amity NY Spinel that was world famed when first found in the 1840's. The exact locale is now lost today, but occasional small finds are made in the area. This is an old specimen in fine condition, sharp, complete and with a nice contrast to the matrix.
