Prehnite -elongated crystals
stock #18.1-393
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.9 x 3 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $130
Late Summer 2018

The amazing Prehnite crystals from Jeffrey mine took many forms and habits, unlike anything ever seen elsewhere. Although Prehnite is not really a scarce mineral, sizable prismatic Prehnite crystals are incredibly rare. This prismatic Prehnite cluster is a good example, sharp, with some complete doubly terminated crystals to 3.8 CM long. The luster is pearly and the crystal tips are transparent, the body is more milky translucent. There is chipping only on the outer edges, the center area is pristine and undamaged. A good small miniature showing an elongated habit, wide center sections and with square cross section terminations.
Vesuvianite
stock #18-AX-23-143
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
8.8 x 7.2 x 6.1 (cabinet)
price: $720
Late Summer 2018

Large block of nearly pure Vesuvianite with every side showing bright crystals to 1.6 CM though most are much smaller. Some contacts and very small chipping can be found so the pricing reflects this, yet the overall display impact is strong. An excellent value for a showy Jeffrey Vesuvianite. A few additional vugs hold the rare Emerald green (so called Chromian) Vesuvianite and a few bits of purple color pop out too. Overall this is the classic mint green color, sparkling with glassy luster on crystals that are transparent to translucent.
Variscite- pure gem nodule
stock #18-AX-9-074
Utahlite Hill, Lucin, Lucin Sistrict, Pilot Range, Box Elder County
Utah, United States
11.4 x 8.5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


A big polished half nodule of very choice gem grade Variscite with top grade color. Some patterns showing faintly but overall a strong and even color. 328 grams nearly all gem grade with just a thin skin on the exterior, super rich. This is an old piece from the less well known Utahlite Hill that had a more pure Variscite than the better known Clay Canyon locale.
Hemimorphite
stock #18-AX-19-217
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
10.1 x 7.7 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Late Summer 2018

Two generations of well-formed Hemimophite crystals on a gossan matrix. The smaller crystals are colorless, glass clear and very lustrous. The larger are a milky white with a hint of reddish included Hematite. Free standing, these larger crystals reach 2.5 CM. A very three-dimensional matrix and with several excellent angles for display, this is an older Mina Ojuela specimen that is not like material from later finds. The early finds are highly respected as perhaps the best prismatic crystals of the specie ever found. A modern Mexican classic that is still affordable.
Fluorite (globular crystals) with Schorl
stock #17.1-304
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
8.1 x 4.9 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Late Summer 2018

Very odd but also quite attractive, a mass of rounded translucent Fluorite crystals stacked on each other. A few Schorl crystals and a little Hyalite opal add some contrast but this is nearly all Fluorite. The color is the "jellybean green" and a vitreous luster. In fine condition and in person more impressive. From a 2017 find on Hohenstein massif, the major specimen source now in the Erongo. It has been incredible how many different types and forms of Fluorite have been found here, often unique to a single pocket.
Serandite (on Albite)
stock #18-AX-27-094
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
2.2 x 1.8 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $190
Late Summer 2018

A very cute thumbnail of bright, transparent Serandites on contrasting Albite. Serandite is usually opaque or at best milky, translucent on thin edges. These tiny crystals are transparent, colorful and lustrous. As is typical of St Hilaire specimens there are micros of other species as well, most noticeably Polylithonite and Natrolite. Despite the small size the luster and color make this one pop.
Ludlamite - fan crystals
stock #15.1-852
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
4.7 x 4.1 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $850
Late Summer 2018

A rare miniature sized and very fine Ludlamite from the classic locale of Santa Eulalia. Excellent color, condition and with the desirable fan aggregates of crystals standing above the matrix. Most of what is seen from Santa Eulalia are thumbnails (which can be superb) but those too are very uncommon, they were found before 1985. This is a very large (miniature) specimen with fine form, luster and presentation. Between Santa Eulalia and the later Bolivian Ludlamite finds, these are the worlds best for the specie. Many of the Ludlamites from both locales have a rather unstable Sulphide matrix. This one seems to be very solid, stable with no rotting pyrite or other issues.
Apatite (CaF)
stock #18.1 -388
Sapo Mine, Goiabeira
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.7 x 4.2 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Late Summer 2018

A fine cluster of Apatite (Fluorapatite) crystals with a silky luster and a hint of zoning. From the remarkable Sapo Mine which has been the source of many different forms and types of Apatite, but is now closed. An older specimen, this habit and color were quite uncommon. Very esthetic, there is a natural crack (not a repair) and contact on the backside that is out of sight from the display side. There is no damage, a very clean specimen. A few Muscovite books are the only matrix, the cluster of crystals are well isolated and the composition is elegant.
