Titanite -var. Sphene, twinned crystals
stock #18.1-AX-9-060
Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3 x 2.5 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $340
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gemmy twin crystals with sharp edges and bright luster on a contrasting matrix. In good condition overall but with some edge chipping, hence more affordable. This is from finds made in the 1990's which had especially good color.
Dioptase
stock #ALEC -19-194
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
4.5 x 3.7 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

Pure emerald green Dioptase in a jackstraw arrangement of bright crystals, in excellent condition with no matrix. A fine Kaokoveld specimen with gemmy zones and individual crystals over 1.6 CM. Very 3 dimensional, this has very good esthetics.
Elbaite on Albite
stock #A7-153-498
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Northern Areas, Pakistan
4 x 3.2 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $325
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very cute small specimen with sharp Tourmalines that grade from a bottle-green to colorless at the termination. Nice esthetics and fine form - there is no damage at all on the display side. A tiny chip on a small crystal on the back of the piece that can not be seen is the only issue to mention and it is quite minor. The contrast with the feldspar is great, this is a vintage 1980's piece ex Larry White Collection.
Grossular
stock #17.AL-497
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 2 x .9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $840
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear, sharp and with top glass-like luster this has a lot of impact for its size. From the long flooded deep areas of the main pit at Jeffrey, this is the sort of Garnet that made this spot world famous. Flat contact on back (typical of these plates) and very 3 dimensional of the display side, excellent condition. These have become very hard or very expensive to get in this quality.
Cuprite var. Chalcotrichite with Malachite
stock #12.1-208
Changmenshan Copper Mine, Jiulang
Jiangxi, China
7.2 x 5.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $575
pre Tucson 2015 update

Electric red crystals of Chalcotrichite in characteristic hair-like form are densely clustered in and near a protective vug. Great display quality for such a delicate mineral. This was found over 7 years ago, we have not seen new material from this locale since. Crystals reach well over 1 CM and are gem clear under magnification. This can be shipped (with insurance and special packaging) or delivered in person at a show or elsewhere. Please write us for details.
Beryl V. Goshenite on Muscovite with Albite
stock #7.AE-462
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.2 x 5.3 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

Unusually gem clear, free standing Beryl crystal from this world class locale. The main crystal is sharp and undamaged, a few wispy veils are seen inside from some angles. A very faint hint of blue is noted but this is essentially colorless Beryl (Goshenite) which is surprisingly rare. Sawn on the underside as is usual for collecting these, it sits well on the flat base.
Actinolite pseudo after Diopside (Uralite)
stock #8.AE-736
Calumet Mine, Turret District, Chaffee County
Colorado, United States
8.8 x 5.2 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $240
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very well documented and fine Colorado classic piece, this comes with 5 old labels, one of which notes: Collected in 1946 by C.G. Coil. Clarence Coil was a significant figure in Colorado Mineralogy. Well formed, terminated crystals are on several sides and in one large vug. This was in many collections over the years, including Elberto Tealdi (Milan, Italy) and Richard Kosnar. The esthetics and satiny luster in person show why it was included in these fine collections.
Azurite- electric blue with Cerussite
stock #ALEC-27-085
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
3.5 x 1.7 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

A bright sharp, gemmy electric blue Azurite from the long gone but fondly remembered finds at Touissit. This is mostly all Azurite, but there are some small Cerussites sticking out in a few spots. The Cerussites do have damage but the Azurite (which is the main focus) is in great shape with sharp prismatic terminations. Far better in person, a fine yet affordable piece.
