Garnet (Almandine)- Antique specimen
stock #13.1-387
Ziller Valley, North Tyrol
Tyrol, Austria
4.5 x 3.4 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Late Summer 2018

A very old (18th century) Tyrolian Garnet specimen from the Zillertal. This area has been the source of Almandine for centuries, these were sold and traded worldwide. This comes with an early Julias Bohm label and a much older (crumbling) one as well as an affixed one on the specimen back. The matrix is an unusual one, a complex mix with Actinolite, Hematite, Magnetite, Quartz and more unusual, small Galena and other Sulfides. Not the usual mica Schists we typically see from the Tyrol. The main crystal is well exposed and complete 1.5 CM in diameter and has some good translucent areas.
Cinnabar- twinned elongated crystal
stock #6.2-054
Chatian Mine, Fenghuang
Hunan Province, China
6.3 x 5.5 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
Late Summer 2018

A long (2.7 CM) terminated twin Cinnabar on a crystallized Dolomite vug. A strong piece with esthetic structure, the back has been sawn to aid collecting this piece, the saw marks are not visible on display. With strong light the crystal is quite translucent and glows a deep cherry red. The termination shows the complex re-entrant angles (drill bit type) of twinning. There is a crack near the base of the crystal that looks like an old repair, checking with Acetone did not reveal any problem but we have priced this as if it was repaired (a previous price of 1100.00 was a very good value if not repaired). The better Chinese Cinnabar crystals are well known as the worlds best and were eagerly sought for more than 150 years. For a while in the past two decades these were more available but now the old mines are closed. We will hope that the future produces more.
Dioptase on Shattuckite
stock #18- AX-14-226
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
6.1 x 5.7 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $850
Late Summer 2018

Fantastic Copper species piece with Emerald green Dioptase crystals on royal blue Shattuckite. The Dioptase are highly lustrous, sharp and up to 1 CM. The underlying Quartz matrix is very solid and there are few hints of Malachite at the edges. These were found a few years ago in a one time find in the Kaokoveld, and sold very quickly. Happy to be able to offer this one again. The color contrast on this is especially fine.
Fluorite on Beryl (Aquamarine)
stock #18-AX-10-745
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
7.3 x 5.2 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $600
Late Summer 2018

A choice combination specimen with light pink octahedral Fluorite on gemmy clear Aquamarine. The largest Beryl is 2.5 CM tall and well exposed on the matrix of Muscovite and Albite. This is a typical Northern Pakistan assemblage. The condition is quite fine, good magnification finds some tiny rough spots on a few Beryl edges but this is perfect by naked eye. Ex. William Hladysz collection. Separately both the Beryl and the Fluorite are fairly good but not extraordinary, however in a combination like this they are much more impressive.
Wulfenite with Calcite, Quartz etc
stock #18.1-283
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos
Chihuahua, Mexico
8.2 x 4.9 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Late Summer 2018

Dozens of lustrous wet-look Wulfenites are clustered in recesses on a complex matrix. Several of the Wulfenites are transparent on close exam, and they contrast well with the Calcite, Dolomite and a few colorless Quartz crystals. Most of the specimen is in fine condition but close (10x magnification) finds some small areas of chipping. By eye a strong display piece with good contrast and color. Ex Immer Cook collection, this was obtained from Schortmanns Minerals more than 40 years ago.
Quartz, red doubly terminated (Eisenkiesel)
stock #18.1-412
Chella, Valencian Community
Valencia, Spain
2.3 x 1.2 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $60
Late Summer 2018

A choice single crystal of the blood red "Eisenkiesel" habit, complete all around. With strong bright Hematite inclusions, these Spanish Quartzes are distinctive. The local name for these is "Jacinto de Compostela" and they are unlike any other Quartz.
Barite with Calcite and Chalcopyrite
stock #18.1-324
Niobec Mine, St Honore
Quebec, Canada
5.1 x 3.5 x 1.7 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $160
Late Summer 2018

A choice, sharp, partly transparent Barite without damage from the great pocket finds at Niobec. Nearly all of the Barites we see from this zone have at least some chipping, I am told they formed on the pocket roof and were mostly all dislodged, being damaged in the process. This small specimen has a perfect, sharp and complete termination, is dusted with tiny Chalcopyrites and has a few sharp Calcites as well. A fine example from this modern classic find.
Calcite -light violet
stock #18.1-411
Hyatt Mine, Talcville, St. Lawrence County
New York, United States
3.4 x 2.1 x 1.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $60
Late Summer 2018

A single scalenohedral Calcite crystal with a light Violet hue. Sharp with a slight milky zoning, this is in good condition as well. Calcites from this locale are not often available.
