Spodumene Var. Hiddenite
stock #7-PAK-310
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
5.2 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $125


A single gemmy mint green crystal with a complete, jagged termination. From the finds in Shigar about 5 years ago, this seems to be one of those with stable color. A very good value in an uncommon spodumene variant.
Autunite -Fine crystals from type locale
stock #9.1-039
Les Odoux, near Autun
Bourgougne-Franche-Compte, France
8.5 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100


A bright, attractive and well crystallized French example from the area that gave Autunite its name. Distinctly different from the well known Spakane Washington Autunites, these are much more rare. Fine lemon-yellow to green crystals and sprays cover much of the flat matrix with individuals reaching over 8MM. Brilliant FL of course. This matrix is exceptionally fragile so we will need to make special shipping or delivery arrangements for this piece. Ex collection of Ernie Schlicter.
Cassiterite (twinned) on Arseopyrite
stock #7-BOLI-131
Viloca Mine (Araca Mine)
Loayza Province, La Paz department, Bolivia
10.8 X 7.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1750


A very fine, esthetic and pristine example with very well formed twinned prismatic crystal. These are well positioned and free standing with excellent luster. Individual prism reach 2CM and the matrix is well crystallized arsenopyrite for a nice contrast. Nearly all Viloco Cassiterite comes out damaged, this large piece is a rarity as there is only very minor chipping at a a few edges that are not obvious, it is virtually pristine. Displays well from many angles.
Tourmaline (elbaite) with Albite. Unusual Bi-color
stock #8DK-165
Darra-I Pech Pegmatite Field
Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan
7 x 4 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


Unusual light violet termination on a deep green prism that sits on a shard of matrix. A few scattered crystals of clevelandite are on the tourmaline as well. The crystal is 7 CM long and the termination is complete with minor contacting, mostly on the back side.Displays well and a very good value for an unusual color combination.
Tourmaline (Elbaite)
stock #8 DK-162
Barra de Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.9 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A big, fat multi colored parrelel growth Elbaite crystal with distinct zoning. Good color -this would cut some large and fine cats eye gems, this is also fluorescent and has two distinct color zones. This has been photographed for an upcoming article on Fl. Tourmaline. Real nice luster and undamaged except at the attachment point . A good value for a large and unusual Elbaite.
Cubic Magnetite with Sphalerite, talc etc.
stock #9.1-083
ZCA Mine number 4, Balmat, Balmat-Edwards District, St. Lawrence, Co.
New York, United States
6.4 x 4.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $250


The best USA magnetites are these unique cubic crystals. Good ones are not common. This example has lusterous and fine crystals that reach 1.4 CM. Displayable from several sides, one face has a contrasting Talc that sets off the dark Magnetite well. Far better than average condition, but with damage at the outer edges and contacts/chipping can be seen. Since the magnetite here is exceptionally fragile, this degree of damage is actually very minimal, and the piece is a fine example of a rare form and a classic occurance. Ex. Ernie Schlicter, 1970's vintage.
Rose Quartz
stock #8-DK-080
Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5 x 4.1 CM (miniature)
price: $280


Rose quartz crystalized in a cluster with micro sprays of Eosphorite. Nice color and arrangement. Rose Quartz in crystals is only known from a few places and is very rare in general.
Adamite and Calcite
stock #8 MEX 631
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
9.4 x 4.4 (cabinet)
price: $250


Unusual and attractive esthetics! A well crystalized Adamite cluster rises from a matrix of gossan that holds a sparkling calcite vug. Good contrast and overall appeal, the color of the Adamite is a rich lemon-green. Some unidentified micro crystals are on the reverse side are a bonus.
