Rhodochrosite with Acanthite, Silver, Fluorite etc.
stock #8.1-417
Wutong Mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh Pref.
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
6.1 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1850


A large (3.7 CM) rhomb of bright red Rhodo sits neatly on a contrasting matrix made up of Acanthite crystals, Native Silver in wires, Sphalerite, Pyrite and Fluorite. If that list is not long enough to clog a label, there are other dark sulfides one of which may be Stephanite but have not been confirmed. A super example of the Rhodo from this find and the association with Silver minerals is very special. Really attractive overall and one of the best I have seen for the relation to Silver.
Topaz
stock #8.1-418
Thomas Mountains
Utah, United States
3.9 x 1.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $90


A very clean, sharp and clear sherry color Topaz that is representative of the better quality gem crystals that the Thomas Mts have produced. Good value for a bright, sparkly toenail!
Vanadinite on Goethite (stalactitic)
stock # 8MOR 722
Mibladen, Midelt, Khenifra Province,
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
2.6 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $120


A fine, esthetic small piece with excellent color and contrast. There are a lot of Vanadinites around, but few have good form and perfection. Looks nice on all sides.
Quartz (red accicular)
stock #8.1-409
2nd Sovietsky mine,Dalngorsk, Primorsky Kray
Far Eastern Region, Russia
10.8 x 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


This is technically called red quartz although this example is much more a peach- orange color. From the famous finds several years ago at Dalngorsk, these are now very rare especially when this large, esthetic, and clean. Very sculptural, displays well from several angles. Some of the crystal sprays (that reach 6 CM) are doubly terminated, others have a contact on one end but typically on the underside so they are not noticeable from the viewing angles. The color is very attractive, but not strong red or deep orange so the price is not 3-5K. An excellent value for one of these!
Bournonite on Quartz and Fluorite
stock #6.2-997
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
8.5 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1950


A very large, lustrous cogwheel type Bournonite (over 5 CM across) that is complete sitting on Fluorite and Quartz crystals one of which penetrates the Bournonite. A exceptional example from Yaogangxian, recognized as the worlds best location for this specie. Some of the fluorite and quartz have damage especially at the edges of the piece, but overall the condition is superb. This sits upright and perfectly without assistance, and the esthetics are top shelf. Given the fragility of large bournonite, the quality and completeness of this crystal is even more remarkable. Add the Fluorite for a color accent (and an uncommon association) the whole is highly desirable.
Tourmaline (Elbaite- Indicolite)
stock #8 DK-060
Conselheiro Pena, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.8 X 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $2400


A killer gem crystal! First the piece is unrepaired, and the termination of this is like a cityscape. Individual peaks are staggered in an esthetic array. Secondly the color is rich and rare, a deep indicoloite blue grading to a deep bottle green. The luster is excellent and overall the condition is outstanding, no distracting damage or chips. Sizable too, so at a quick glance this looks dark and opaque due to the thickness, but this really glows with good lighting. The photos here have minimal backlight so the crystal is not "overlit" and unrealistic. You can really make it sing with stronger light if you want! Compare if you can find somthing like this, it is reasonable for so much good gem!
Smoky Quartz (alpine gemmy)
stock #8.DK-134
Tujetsch, Vorderhien Valley
Grischun (Grisons), Switzerland
4.4X1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $140


Gem clear, sharp and clean is what everyone looks for in a Swiss quartz. This is a fine small example with the lovely red brown color that makes these so distinctive. While this could be sold as a perfect example, 10x magnification and strong lighting can find some very tiny chips, so this is just "near perfect". Still an excellent small alpine crystal reasonably priced.
Tourmaline (elbaite) Steeply terminated
stock #8 DK-145
Golconda Pegmatite district, Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (small miniature)
price: $300


Deep gemmy green crystal with very unusual termination much like a Dunton mine, Maine but still distinctly different. The crystal is a flattened prism and the display side is relatively clean of damage (micro nicks of no real significance) the back and base have contacts and removal damage but it still displays well. It is a good gem crystal with a different look than any I have seen from Golconda.
