Fluorite with inclusions of Chalcopyrite
stock #A 18-153
Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub District, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.5 x 6.8 x4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


A sharp multi-color pastel Fluorite with good clarity and phantoms. The crystals show excellent growth patterns and have sharp crystals of golden Chalcopyrite included inside. This looks fantastic with good lighting. A classic locale, the Denton Mine once produced a lot of good Fluorites, but is now gone forever. Some color changing based on light source, the core color is a pale yellow with blue to purple outer phantoms.
Calcite and Realgar
stock #6.2- 1010
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
9.1 x 6.3 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $225


From the incredible finds of 2002, this piece has a big gemmy lustrous compound twin Calcite crystal that stands nicely on a partial Calcite that makes a perfect base. The front side is dusted with micro xls of opaque white calcite and some brilliant red, gemmy crystals of Realgar that reach 2 CM. There is some chipping on this piece so it is very affordably priced as a result. Still it displays well and has good visual quality.
Rhodochrosite (large single crystal, unsual habit)
stock #A7-544
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 3 x .3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $320


A big, sharp and well-formed single crystal of the rare "Mt St. Hilaire habit" of Rhodochrosite. Due to the thin nature of this piece it will fit in a thumbnail catagory but it looks bigger in person. The color is a brownish that can glow deep red with a backlight. In good condition damagewise, there are just some very tiny edge chips seen at 10x magnification on the front face and a bigger chip on the backside. For this delicate thin habit this piece is remarkable. A great addition to any good suite of Rhodochrosites or Canadian minerals.
Fluorite- Unusual locale-etched sharp cube
stock #A 28-016
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.9 x 6.6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $475


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. Here a super sharp 4.5 CM cube is centered on a mix of cubes and etched masses of bright purple and yellow. Nice phantoms are seen on the edges, but the overall impact is very good. One of the better small cabinet specimens from this find.
Carletonite -Very well crystallized, intense blue.
stock #A16-087
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
6 x 5.4 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1875


Carletonite is one of the most desired of Canadian minerals and it is incredibly rare, it ONLY occurs at Mt St. Hillaire which is also the type locality. This is an even more rare cabinet specimen with great esthetics. None has been found for years, and the original find was mostly thumbnail sized crystals or larger cleavage pieces. There were never many cabinet sized specimens and these are now only very rarely for sale. This has crystals to 3 CM (huge for the specie) with rich color and some distinct zoning. The condition is quite good with the typically crude cubes nicely contrasting with the matrix. For any good collection this is a very eyecatching specimen of a significant, rare mineral.
Fluorite (elongated etched crystal)
stock #Alec-28-019
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.1 x 5.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. This is a particularly fine example of the distinctive habit, it has a main elongated crystal with very sharp edges resting on a jumble of smaller etched yet sharp crystals all having the same yellow core. Dark purple color that shows clear phantoms when backlit. Fine condition, displays well and an uncommon locale.
Boothite with Arsenolite (very rare hydrated Copper Sulfate)
stock #Alec 12-599
Baker, San Bernadino County
California, United States
6.5 x 3.6 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $575


Most "very Rare" minerals tend to be very tiny and very drab. This is an exception with bright blue sparkling masses of well formed crystals mixed with platy white Arsenolite crystals. This is similar to Chalcanthite but it has 7 H2O included making it "fully hydrated". This was part of the Ruth and Andy Palmer species research collection and was studied by Joe Mandarino. Almost never seen for sale and an exceptional example!
Rhodochrosite with minor Sphalerite, Pyrite, Quartz
stock #A7-548
Sweet Home Mine, Alma
Colorado, United States
2.6 x 1.7 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330


A well composed Rhodo thumbnail with great color from the Larry White collection. The piece is mostly just 3 rhombs juxtaposed with almost no matrix. Good translucency and luster this is a nice yet affordable example. The cost of any good Sweet Home specimens has consistently gone up every year, and since "they ain't makin 'em no more" the supply is now very small.
