Linarite (well crystallized) with Caledonite etc.
stock #ALEC-10-402
Grand Reef Mine - Graham County
Arizona, United States
7.5 x 6.3 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $675
pre Tucson 2015 update

The Linarites of the Grand Reef mine are very much sought after and not just by Arizona collectors. This specimen main vug (3.5 CM across) is packed with lustrous free standing crystals that reach over 1.2 CM. Zones of Caledonite and other secondaries are scattered about as well. This is a fine example of this relatively rare and delicate mineral from this great location. Damage is minimal (hard to see without magnification) since the crystals are well protected in the vug. This could be trimmed smaller, but I like the context of the mineralized matrix as is.
Grossular gem grade with included Clinochlore
stock #17.AL-487
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2 x 1.6 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $850
pre Tucson 2015 update

A pretty and fine specimen that is a rather hard to describe and to photograph. A cluster of transparent garnets with a tiny bit of matrix. It is easy to see the matrix through the clear Grossular, and with magnification individual crystals of Clinochlore and what looks like Diopside can be seen inside the crystals. Undamaged, clear and with very, very glassy luster, this has outstanding deep color and is far better in person.
SOLD Acanthite -textbook habit crystals
stock #SOLD ALEC-22-178
San Juan de Rayas Mine - Level 407
Guanajuato, Mexico
2 x 1.6 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

This thumbnail Acanthite shows textbook forms and habits in sharp, undamaged crystals that have very good luster. A modern classic locale, the San Juan de Reyes mine has been the source for some outstanding silver minerals, this one is an excellent example.
Diopside (gem clear) with green Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-490
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
5.3 x 3.9 x 4.1 (cabinet)
price: $1950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer quality gem clear Diopside cluster with a light sherry color is perched on a contrasting matrix of white Diopside and bright green Vesuvianite. In outstanding condition this has fine eyecatching esthetics, showing the tabular crystals in a perfect stack. Good Diopside from this locale is sought after, these are very uncommon in such quality and condition as they are fragile. An excellent addition to any suite from Jeffrey Mine and a a fine Diopside from anyplace
SOLD Vesuvianite -exceptional color
stock #SOLD 17.AL-482
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.2 x 1.9 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

Rare color and perfect form making this a serious competition grade thumbnail. Even more rare, no damage at 30X magnification can be found. This deep violet to pink purple zoned crystal cluster has great luster and stands out in a display . This is the sort of color and quality that has made the Jeffrey mine a world class locale. This level of quality is rarely available and much sought after.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-493
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.9 x 2.2 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $650
pre Tucson 2015 update

A really attractive piece with an unusual composition. A small "mountain" of tiny Vesuvianite crystals (mixed green, purple and pink) are the base for a single gem clear crystal jutting out of the summit. A bright, high luster piece that is unlike any other we have seen. In very good condition, a few crystals show some breaks that recrystallized. Micro level chips exist that are not seen without magnification. The summit crystal is especially clear and perfect. This is the kind of specimen that helped make this closed mine a world classic.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-485
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.5 x 1.7 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

Brilliant form and esthetics, this is gemmy Vesuvianite of top quality, would make a fine competition thumbnail. The transparent green crystals are far more glassy in person, and the arrangement of radiating prisms is very organic looking. The display impact for the size is remarkable.
Liddicoatite
stock #ALEC-30-029
Andrembesoa Commune
Betafo Dist - Vakinankaratra Rgn -Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
4.5 x 1.8 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1600
pre Tucson 2015 update

An older Madagascar Liddicoatite, this is a fine gemmy clear zoned crystal with exceptional luster. No damage at all, the crystal shows excellent dichroism, the color shift goes between a green hue and yellow. Better in person the color zoning is quite unusual too.
