Calcite/Marcasite Dolomite
stock #ALEC-17-1052
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
5.7 x 2 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $385
pre Tucson 2015 update

A exceptional and odd form with an elagant look. Sharp Dolomite crystals are sprinkled on a stalk of matrix decorated with golden Marcasites and tiny Calcites. The top of the curving finger of matrix has a light amber colored Calcite that is sharp, complete and transparent to translucent. ALll in all some great esthetics from the Benchmark quarry, more famed for its Herkimer style quartz. A very fine NY Calcite!
Calcite w. Dolomite & Marcasite
stock #ALEC-17-881
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
6.5 x 3.3 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very odd and esthetic twinned calcite sits on a thin shaft of matrix that has some Marcasite and Dolomite adding nice accents. The yellow Calcite has a great contrast to the matrix, and is quite translucent. This is the best form of this type Calcite I have seen, it comes from from the amazing NY collection of William Hladysz. Certainly one of a kind.
Rutile
stock #9.1-227
Graves Mt., Lincoln Co.
Georgia, United States
5.3 x 4.2 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
pre Tucson 2015 update

An American classic- Graves Mt Rutile, with a sharp, very lustrous crystal nicely exposed on matrix. No damage, but with the typical matrix contacts these all have. Some faces reflect ruby red highlights although overall this looks deep black. Better in person, a nice small cabinet sized piece that display very well.
Prehnite & Grossular
stock #ALEC-27-164
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.2 x 2.5 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $1400
pre Tucson 2015 update

Bright green Grossular with bright lustre is the matrix for the rare blocky habit Prehnite crystals. Displays well from every side, this is simply an esthetic specimen of a rare and special combination. These were found over 20 years ago in a single zone, there were not many good ones then and now they are highly appreciated. A modern classic from the closed and much missed Jeffrey Quarry
Wendwilsonite
stock #ALEC-30-072
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
5.1 x 4.3 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $390
pre Tucson 2015 update

One of the most desirable species from Bou Azzer's amazing deposits of rare Cobalt minerals is Wendwilsonite. This well protected vug in a cobalt pink matrix holds a number of small crystals of several species the most significant being these deep red gemmy Wendwilsonite. In fine condition, the crystals reach 6+mm which is quite large for the specie.
SOLD Grossular -gemmy
stock #SOLD 17.AL-508
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.5 x 2.9 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear sharp and colorful, that is why Jeffrey Garnets are world class. This small miniature is that and has a nice crystal distribution. No damage in the center display area, there is only very tiny chipping on some outside edges. The crystals are so clear that internal light reflections look like damage in some photos. This is a matrix plate so the reverse side is just matrix, on the front only a small area of matrix is seen but it is the most desirable light-colored type. Larger specimens of this quality can be priced for thousands but for the collector of miniatures this is a great value.
Vesuvianite Bi-colored, Dichroic
stock #17.AL-489
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.9 x 1.7 x 1.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A classic habit Jeffrey mine Vesuvianite single crystal showing the very desirable bi-color zoning with deep purple and green. The crystal is translucent to transparent, with bright glassy luster. The purple core shows a strong dichroism with a remarkable color shift when rotated. Held in front of a light source (like a computer screen) the transparent areas change from purple to green. Now considered to be the worlds best vesuvianites, these are fast becoming impossible to find in this quality and very expensive.
Vesuvianite with Diopside
stock #17.AL-492
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4 x 3.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $2800
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer miniature with top color, great esthetics, sharp gemmy crystals and in perfect condition. This is almost all Vesuvianite with a scattering of gemmy Diopside crystals that add a nice contrast. The deep green Vesuvianites are all with the pointed terminations and have gem clarity. This quality was rare and special when the mine was working but is now almost never available. Far better in person this piece really glows in any display.
