Datolite
stock #ALEC-29-059
Charcas
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
6.4 x 6 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
pre Tucson 2015 update

Great color and luster, this is a Datolite from Mexico that looks much more like a good Russian specimen. From a small find in late 2013, this has the form, clarity and quality of the top few percent. Some edge chipping/ contacts is inevitable but overall in very good condition.
Variscite with Wardite crystals etc.
stock #13.1-362
Little Green Monster Mine, Clay Canyon, Fairfield
Utah, United States
5.8 x 4 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $120
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unpolished Variscite etc. nodule showing many of the associated species (Crandellite etc) and having a fine vug of blue green Wardite in distinct crystals. Often Wardite from the Fairfield area is white or grey, this is a much more attractive color and the crystals are very sharp, clear and much better than typical.
Cassiterite
stock #ALEC-12-213
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
3.8 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

There have been many Cassiterites recovered from Xuebaoding, but the prismatic type with the pyrimidal termination is by far the rarest form. This is a good lustrous single crystal that shows the habit well. There are contacts and a few tiny chips so the price reflects this yet it is still a very nice example.
Golden Barite w-Calcite
stock #6.2-746
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
7.8 x 5.4 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sweet gemmy golden Barite with tabular Calcites that are decorated in turn with Pyrite. The Barites have dark phantoms and the overall contrast is excellent. This is from a small find at Nandan in 2002, which were mostly very damaged. This has minimal damage, none of which is naked eye-visible from logical display angles. Much nicer in person too.
Weloganite with Dresserite, Dawsonite
stock #ALEC-10-946
Francon Quarry, Montreal
Quebec, Canada
8.5 x 8.1 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sizable cavity filled with sharp Weloganite crystals up to 2.2 CM long. There are numerous tiny crystals of the classic related species (and probably some Strontianites too. The Francon Quarry is now gone, its Weloganites were by far the best ever found worldwide. The biggest of these are undamaged with the elegant complex hourglass habit well presented. There are some "natural" broken crystals in the pocket that show signs of partial rehealing. A good, affordable specimen with some well formed, rare crystals.
Calcite included by Realgar
stock #8.1-123
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
3.1 x 2.9 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $140
pre Tucson 2015 update

We have seen very few of these esthetic Calcites from the Shimen mine, and none for several years. This was obtained in China in 2002, it is a single gemmy Calcite included by and associated with blood red Realgar. The crystal displays well and the staining of the orange-red color adds a very attractive touch.
Fluorite
stock #ALEC-20-071
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
4 x 3.2 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

Good Fluorite from the Elmwood mine is always desirable but the mine is mostly producing Calcite now. This is a small but quite nice specimen that sits on a contrasting matrix. Nice zoning and clarity, this one has the delicate surface steps and it is possible to see the matrix through the Fluorite. A modern American classic, still affordable for now, but attractive enough for any collection.
Rhodonite- Single crystal
stock #Alec-29-033
Conselheiro Lafaiete
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.3 x 2.6 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $220
pre Tucson 2015 update

A translucent bright red single crystal of Rhodonite that is complete and distinctive. There are a few tiny unidentified yellow crystals on one face, otherwise this is all Rhodonite. This area had a major discovery a few years ago that produced some of the worlds best Rhodonites that sold for huge sums. This specimen is not that good or anything close to that expensive. An extremely flattened Rhomb, there is some minor edge chipping is seen in the photos but still displays well.
