Elbaite ex Herb Obodda collection
stock #ALEC-30-020
Mawi Pegmatite
Nuristan, Afghanistan
3.8 x .7 x .7 CM (miniature)
price: $1200
pre Tucson 2015 update

Superb. A sharp, gem clear multi-colored Tourmaline crystal in perfect condition from the early finds in Afganistan. Not much else to say, the photos show it well. This quality is now very rare and hard to find at any price. The central green zone is a rich vivid color, not like the pastel hue that was typical from later finds in Paprock. Far better in person.
Elbaite v. Indicolite
stock #ALEC-30-018
Santa Rosa Mine, Itambacuri
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.2 x 1.1 x .9 (miniature)
price: $700
pre Tucson 2015 update

A gemmy, bright blue Santa Rosa Tourmaline with a hue not often available. Not a perfect specimen but still very displayable, the main termination and main crystal is complete, undamaged but with a little matrix adhering, the small side crystals have damage that can be seen with careful examination. That said it has an uncommon color and luster with very good clarity that is really nice.
Vesuvianite with Aragonite and possible Pectolite
stock #17.AL-484
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.5 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $350
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unusual and attractive combo, bright yellowish-green crystals of Vesuvianite are scattered on a branching crystals that were previously identified as Pectolite but now seen to be at least in part Aragonite or similar Carbonate. We have just sent off a sample for anlaysis to confirm. Both the Vesuvianite and the Pectolite/ Aragonite are in excellent condition- no damage can be found even with 40X magnification, which is incredible for such delicate minerals. The Vesuvianites are perched so that it is easy to see they are doubly terminated.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-483
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $500
pre Tucson 2015 update

This is an intense electric pink Vesuvianite, undamaged and sparkling bright. The matrix is microcrystalized Vesuvianite also but a light mint green color which makes a nice contrast. This color Vesuvianite is quite rare and this is a very esthetic piece with a lot of impact for the size.
grossular
stock #17.AL-486
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.3 x 1 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $750
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear, sharp and with great luster, this is a very strong small display piece of transparent garnet. The plate is undamaged and the whole specimen is translucent to transparent. Relatively affordable for one of this quality, this piece shows well the brilliance that made the Jeffrey Mine world famous. The color is a mid orange-red with just a hint of pink hues in some lighting.
Grossular
stock #17.AL-515
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 3 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1400
pre Tucson 2015 update

A super bright emerald green that is far more intense than can be seen on most monitors, This is the so called "chromian" Grossular. A fine competition grade and with excellent form overall, this is far better in person. One of the most prized colors for Garnets from the Jeffrey mine, this specimen has a nice contrast with the lighter green Grossular. The overall esthetics are very 3 dimensional making a very special piece.
Cerussite on Barite
stock #13.1-381
Mibladen, Midelt, Khenifra Province,
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.9 x 3 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $120
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very nice example of Cerussite on contrasting Barite from Mibladen. No damage, the sharp, gemmy Cerussite (double terminated) is well perched on the orange Barite. This locality has provided many good Cerussites, this one is much better than average and a very good value.
SOLD Vesuvianite
stock #SOLD 17.AL-495
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 1.5 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

A esthetic tower of stacked bi-colored Vesuvianite crystals that is absolutely pristine and sparkling. A careful exam at 20X magnification show not the smallest chip or contact, a very rare thing indeed! The green to pink/purple hues are well presented and the overall composition a piece of sculptural art. Small but choice.
