Staurolite
stock #ALEC-10-1074
Coray, Finistere
Brittany, France
10 x 7.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $165
May 2015

A French Staurolite on matrix from an old collection, the crystals are up to 2.7 CM in size. There are several penetrations that seem to be twinned, and the crystals protrude nicely from the matrix. A sizable piece with many crystals, displays very well.
Olivenite- well xl'd
stock #15.1-433
Wheal Gorland
Cornwall, England
5.5 x 3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
May 2015

A really good Cornish Olivenite with fine color and contrast to the matrix. There are several other Copper secondaries on the Quartz matrix that add nice color. The crystal druze is sizable and in excellent condition. Classic old material that displays well.
Langite
stock #15.1-531
Bedford United Mine, Tavistock Hamlets, Tavistock
Devon, England
4.3 x 4.1 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $130
May 2015

A small, brilliant colored English Langite from the classic location of Tavistock. Bright sparkling crystals and a nice contrast to the matrix too. In fine condition there looks to be some Caledonite (not verified) intermixed in the Langites, but it could also be an unusual Brochantite which is more common from the locale.
Stilbite -Radial type-classic locale
stock #15.1-523
Paterson
New Jersey, United States
7.2 5.6 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $140
May 2015

An old Schortmann's specimen circa 1948-50 from the Patterson New Jersey area. The radial ball of Stilbite is 3.2 CM across and nicely exposed. This sort of esthetic is not very common from this classic locale best known for Prehnites. In fine condition.
Epidote
stock #13.1-343
Garnet Hill, Calaveras County
California, United States
3.9 x 1.9 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $165
May 2015

A single sharp and well formed Epidote crystal from the Garnet hill locale in California's Gold country. Undamaged as seen, there are some tiny secondary epidotes ecrusting some faces. A very good example from this interesting locale.
Quartz var. Citrine (old find)
stock #17.1-AX-10-935
"Santander Pegmatite"
Santander, Colombia
4.7 x 2.1 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $330
May 2015

A fine and gemmy Citrine pair of sharp crystals from a find made in Colombia in the 1970s. There have not been more since these came out, and this is a good example of the quality of the find. An extremely small chip is noted on this, otherwise in fine condition with delicate lemon color. Where the two crystals are joined there are interesting wispy inclusions some of which are curved and hairlike. The location has always been given as the "Santander Pegmatite" of which there are many. Recent attempts to relocate this find have so far failed.
Barite (gemmy golden) on Quartz w. Fluorite
stock #ALEC-26-010
Pohla Mine, Schwarzenberg District
Saxony, Germany
10 x 7.4 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
May 2015

A venerable German classic- this matrix plate hosts several sharp gem clear Barites to 2 CM. In very good condition, the matrix has some minor Fluorite and Pyrite but is mostly composed of sparkling Quartz. Displays well as is or could be trimmed to make several fine miniatures. Previous dealer labels included (with 500.00$ price tag).
Rhodonite on Calcite with Franklinite
stock #9.1-251
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
4 x 2.9 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $260
May 2015

A complete 2.9 CM crystal of Rhodonite is perched above a smaller 2.3 CM crystal resting on Calcite matrix. Nicely exposed, the Calcite has not been acid "melted" so this is fully natural. An affordable classic specimen with good color, form and in nice condition, these are getting quite
