Albite with Fluorapatite
stock #18.1-447
La Marina Mine, Pauna
Boyaca, Colombia
7.2 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $80
Late Summer 2018

Albite in sharp, glassy, lustrous and mostly transparent are the majority of the specimen. There are a few scattered pink Apatites, the largest about 1 CM, which are also glassy, transparent and in fine condition. From the great find at La Marina Mine, that became famed for the pink Apatites and later for some of the worlds best Euclase. The Albites were sometimes matrix for both of these species and I think under appreciated on their own, they are superb and showy Feldspars. A choice specimen that is well crystalized on both sides and shows off the Albite more than the Apatite.
Fluorite -unusual form, classic locale
stock #18.1-448
Mex-Tex mine, Bingham, Hansonburg District, Soccoro County
New Mexico, United States
6.3 x 6.1 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Late Summer 2018

A rounded highly etched crystal mass that seems to have grown on a flat surface (Barite?) and later come off. Translucent to transparent, this is a multi hued piece and multi stepped as well, this has tones of green, purple and blue. Ex Hitchings collection, obtained in 1967. An unusual piece, the front display surface is finely detailed and remarkably in excellent condition. The back is cleaved and in part re-crystalized, none of which is visible on display. A very attractive Fluorite, better in person, this is not typical for the locale, there is also a dusting of small Quartz crystals that add some sparkle. With any backlighting this glows a good green to purple.
Stibnite and Calcite
stock #18-AX-12-106
Xikhuahshan Antimony mine
Hunan Province, China
4.3 x 3.4 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $80
Late Summer 2018

A delicate and complex miniature specimen of transparent, zoned Calcite scalenohedra mixed with metallic Stibnites. In fine condition this is a very three dimensional piece. From the prolific finds of 2008-9, an affordable Calcite/Stibnite combo that is complex and very detailed.
Amethyst - scepter
stock #16.1-222
Fat Jack Mine, Bradshaw Mountains, Yavapai County
Arizona, United States
5.2 x 2 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $700
Late Summer 2018

A very sharp, clear, light hued Amethyst scepter in flawless condition from the Fat Jack. Some wispy zoning is noted as is a multi stepping just below the head. We do not see many of these available and almost none with this clarity and undamaged condition. Outstanding, fine Arizona Amethyst.
Azurite
stock #18-AX-3-288
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
3.7 x 2.2 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $340
Late Summer 2018

A nicely perched deep azure-blue crystal on contrasting matrix. The habit is typical from Milpillas in the early finds and looks fine from several angles. Milpillas was such a productive locality when the Azurites were found that they are still very affordable. This piece is well above the average for quality and esthetics as seen. No damage but some small contacting that is not on the logical display angles. Very choice luster, sharp and with very bright color especially when well lit.
Calcite on Celestite
stock #18-AX-19-260
Clay Center, Ottawa County
Ohio, United States
5.3 x 4 x 2.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $85
Late Summer 2018

A nice spray of flat Celestite blades hosting light yellow Calcites. The Calcite are doubly terminated and scalenohedral. The Clay Center area has been a prolific mineral locale for decades best known for Fluorite but also a source of nice Celestite. In fine condition and displays well.
Cobaltoan Dolomite with Calcite and Malachite
stock #18.1-436
Mashamba West Mine, Kolwezi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
6.3 x 3.8 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
Late Summer 2018

The intense color of a good Cobaltoan Dolomite is unlike any other, unique in the mineral world. This specimen has top intense color, and the crystals are unusually well formed, some in tabular habit to 1.1 CM. In excellent condition as seen, this is an older piece collected years ago. Sawn on the back the front side is an open elongated vug that has protected the crystals well. Small dark green Malachite crystals are a nice color contrast. Super display esthetics and electric bright color jump out in any array of minerals.
Hematite Pseudo after Magnetite
stock #18. AX-19-437
Payun Volcano, Altiplano de Payun Matru
Mendoza, Argentina
4.2 x 2.2 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $95
Late Summer 2018

The form of these Hematite pseudos is simply incredible. This is a complete floater, no damage or contacts, sharp, metallic luster and very well detailed. One of the best mineral finds of the past several years the Payun Volcano mineralogy is fascinating and the morphology of the better crystals like this is exceptional.
