Cerussite on Barite
stock #13.1-381
Mibladen, Midelt, Khenifra Province,
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.9 x 3 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $120
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very nice example of Cerussite on contrasting Barite from Mibladen. No damage, the sharp, gemmy Cerussite (double terminated) is well perched on the orange Barite. This locality has provided many good Cerussites, this one is much better than average and a very good value.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-495
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 1.5 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $480
pre Tucson 2015 update

A esthetic tower of stacked bi-colored Vesuvianite crystals that is absolutely pristine and sparkling. A careful exam at 20X magnification show not the smallest chip or contact, a very rare thing indeed! The green to pink/purple hues are well presented and the overall composition a piece of sculptural art. Small but choice.
SOLD Grossular (honey gem)
stock #SOLD 17.AL-488
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
6.4 x 4.9 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

The Jeffrey mine has produced more colors of Grossular than any place on earth, some are quite distinctive. This yellow to light orange honey color is unlike any other I have seen from anyplace else and is fairly rare at Jeffrey. Like the darker color crystals that are more famous, these are very transparent and usually have many internal veils that look like lots of bruising and damage. Up close it you see these are in excellent condition, just very clear. With only micro sized contacts, the crystals are very well formed. Larger than typical Grossular crystals from Jeffrey, these are up to 2.3 CM, almost an inch. Bright luster and much nicer in person. Honey color like this is a must for a fine garnet suite, and not often available in this fine quality.
Vesuviantite
stock #17.AL-491
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.9 x 1.5 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $2600
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine miniature, bright and esthetic "V" of prismatic Vesuvianites are nicely decorated with smaller crystals with contrasting pink and purple hues. Excellent luster, the small crystals sparkle and the larger crystals have glassy smooth faces. This has the eye appeal that makes this type of Vesuviianite so desirable. In very good condition with no eye visible damage, 10X magnification shows some small chips and contacts that are clearly not distracting. Specimens of this calibre when available are usually far more expensive.
Topaz
stock #AC-372
Jos Plateau
Plateau State, Nigeria
4.2 x 1.6 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

An older specimen that came out in the 1960's, this is an alluvial piece that is distinctly waterworn. The remarkable thing is that the crystal form is very clear despite the tumbling and softened edges, it still has a gemmy clear core, no internal cleaves and typical habit. Ex Schortmann's minerals (with label), they were the first to offer Nigerian Topaz that was collected by missionaries in that period from gravel bars. This has a very faint blue green hue but in most lighting seems milky white.
Kammererite with Zaratite
stock #13.1-251
Kop Krom Mine, Kop Daglari
East Anatolia, Turkey
5.5 x 3.6 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Intense color and in excellent condition, a rich specimen of well crystallized Kammererite. The Kop Krom mine has produced by far the best examples of this rare Chrome Clinochlore, this piece also has a druze of tiny Zaratite crystals best seen under magnification. The Kammererite crystals on this piece are not the typical plates or druse, they are sharp, prismatic and well exposed on the matrix. Hard to find in this quality.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF)- classic locale
stock #14.1-078
Nevel Quarry, Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
10.9 x 7.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
pre Tucson 2015 update

A large cabinet sized matrix of quartz and mixed pegmatite that hosts a dense mass of interlocked purple Apatite crystals. From the famed Nevel Quarry in Maine that is more famed for fine Tourmalines. The sharp and glassy crystals reach over 9mm but most are about 5-6 in size. The color is a good medium purple that is lighter than from the nearby Pulsifer Quarry. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare from the Nevel and this one also has a few tiny unidentified Phosphate crystals as well. Minor bruises are seen with magnification and some cracks are noted in the matrix yet the naked eye display is excellent.
Rhodochrosite with Acanthite and Fluorite, Quartz, Pyrite and Sphalerite
stock #ALEC_22-062
Wudong mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
4.8 X 3.5 X 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1350
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine, high impact specimen with well formed red rhombs (up to 2.2 CM) offset with branching crystallized Acanthite. This specimen shows very well the combination of Sulphide species that were associated with this remarkable find of Rhodochrosite. Excellent condition and form, this can be displayed from several angles.
