stock #ALEC-31-100
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
5.5 x 5.4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
pre Tucson 2015 update

Iranian Wulfenite with a distinctive look and sizable crystals in very good condition. From the little know and very old Ahmad Abad Mine, this has a nice decoration of tiny calcite scalenohedrons. Very few of this size are damage free, this on is remarkable and intact. A fine addition to any Wulfenite suite.
Malachite stalactite
stock #15.1-069
L'Etolle du Congo Mine - Lubumbashi
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.2 x1.6 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $60
pre Tucson 2015 update

Small but perfect, an older stalactite of bright green Malachite from the Congo. The surface on all sides is a druze of sparkling malachite crystals that makes this very different from the usual smooth malachite stalactites.

Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.5 x 2.4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $450
pre Tucson 2015 update

An "air clear", sharp, lustrous example of the very desirable Walworth NY Fluorite. These are famed for the clarity and overall esthetics as well as their rarity. Only a few specimens are found each year, some years there are none. This specimen was collected in the 70's by Bill Haladyz, it has the quality that has made these highly collectable. Better in person, this is classic USA Fluorite unlike from anyplace else worldwide.

Jonas Mine, Itatiaia District, Conselheiro, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.6 x 1.2 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $2600
pre Tucson 2015 update

Jonas Tourmaline is one of the most sought after gem crystal specimens and usually very expensive. This is a richly colored Elbaite, a little different from most Jonas pieces, it looks quite similar to some Cruzieros. This was part of a small suite of verified Jonas specimens and was unique in the parcel. The color at the termination end is deep intense red as would be expected, but the zoning is much rarer. The clarity is gem grade and the small side crystal is a nice esthetic addition. No damage at all, there is a contact one one side face that is not seen from any logical display angle. A fine, classic locale tourmaline with top color and quality.
Elbaite w.Lepidolite
stock #ALEC-30-023
Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill,Mesa Grande District, San Diego County
California, United States
5.6 x 1.4 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $1850

Unusually clear gem grade and with muche better than usual color intensity. This is the classic look and habit of the Himalaya mine, but in exceptional condition and quality. No repairs and very close to perfect condition damagewise (just one chip about .5 millimeter that is clearly not distracting or easy to see). This is an old specimen, far better in person, and far better than most of this size and type.
stock #ALEC-16-192
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
6 x 3.7 x 1.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $850
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very nice sculptural old Touissit Wulfenite specimen that displays well. In good condition overall, there is minor damage as seen in the photos and is typical of nearly every piece when examined with care. That said, this is a very displayable piece with quite good color and very shiny luster. These are now hard to find with this quality and esthetic form.
Wulfenite w. Calcite
stock #ALEC-31-093
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
5.2 x 3.8 x 4.3 CM (miniature)
price: $575
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unusual and attractive Iranian Wulfenite from an exciting new (old) locality. The Ahmad Abad Mine in Yazd Province last worked over 200 years ago, it has recently produced a small number of quite impressive Wulfenites of many styles. This has complex orange crystals decorated with Calcite in tiny scalenohedrons. Most crystals show the chevron or "arrowhead" habit, some old broken areas are noted most of which have recrystallized and some breaks have secondary coatings of Calcite. Large crystals for this find and a nice addition for a Wulfenite suite.
Wulfenite w. Calcite & Plattnerite
stock #ALEC-31-094
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
4.8 x 4.9 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $600
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very complex Iranian specimen, a delicate structure of thin, translucent bladed Wulfenites are decorated with tiny calcite scalenohedrons and black accicular Platnerites. An interesting and showy esthetic, this is in remarkably pristine condition for such delicacy. From small scale collecting at this old abandoned mine.
