Fluorite - new find
stock #18.1-523
Fluorite Quarry, Jebel tighemi, Taourirt, Taourirt province,
l Oriental Region, Morocco
5.1 x 4.6 x 3.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $550
Dec 2018

A very fine, ultra clear and sharp pair of Fluorite cubes on matrix from the new find of Moroccan Fluorites. This find has produced a lot of larger, somewhat crude cubes, most being opaque to translucent only. Very few have come out with this perfection and transparency. No damage and displayable from almost any angle, the Fluorites are well exposed and just barly connected to the matrix being perched on small pedestals of crystallized matrix. The Fluorite itself does look a bit like a fine Llamas Quarry piece but is also differnt on close exam. Some faces show a slight frosting that under magnification shows a beautiful recrystallized texture with a melted look. The matrix is easily seen right through the Fluorite.
Calcite- gemmy, twinned
stock #15.1-513
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.4 x 5 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Dec 2018

Ultra clear, a pair of transparent crystals of twinned Scalenohedral Calcite from the great Elmwood mine. The faces are glassy and the termination tips show a slight hint of a cognac color otherwise these are perfectly colorless. The twinning is both a rotational and interpenetrated type, which is very easy to see in person. Just a hint of matrix is present, mostly on the backside of one crystal. The condition is fine and the terminations are uncleaved, A contact on the back, lower edge is noted but no damage. Now that the Elmwood is closed probably forever, good, clean Calcites of the quality are becoming quite uncommon and prized.
Prehnite -well crystalized
stock #18.1-587
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
Manyara Region, Tanzania
5.7 x 3.9 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Dec 2018

Radiating cluster of fine terminated Prehnite crystals from the famed Merelani Hills best known for its Tanzanite. In fine condition by naked eye, some very minor bruising is seen with magnification, but overall the visual impression is pristine. This is also a color-changing Prehnite and can look green to a gray-blue depending on the light source. Some of the crystals also show slight rotation or twisting like some of the classic European Alpine specimens.
Beryl var Goshenite- elongated crystals
stock #17.1-537
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.6 x 3.1 x 2.9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $480
Dec 2018

A superb toenail sized Erongo Goshenite. Perfect colorless Beryl crystals sprout from a Feldspar matrix in an attractive array. Excellent luster, clarity and with a slender habit all the crystals are terminated with the flat top and some tiny pinnacoid faces. An older specimen of a type almost never available. No damage at all, the specimen could be trimmed to a fine competition thumbnail but also looks great as is.
Fluorite - etched cube with
stock #18.1-540
Penas Blancas, Bourbur
Boyaca, Colombia
3.4 x 2.3 x 1.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $420
Dec 2018

A perfectly etched cubic Fluorite with the unique emerald green corners of Penas Blancas. This rare zoning has now been attributed to the same Chromium that colored the world class Emeralds found just a few hundred meters lower on this mountain. This is transparent and mostly colorless like an ice cube with complex crystallized. etched surfaces on all sides. There is no damage or chipping A very fine example that is choice, complete and shows the selective color in the corners perfectly.
Smokey Quartz on Microcline and Albite
stock #18.1-616
Moat Mt., North Conway
New Hampshire, United States
8.6 x 5. x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Dec 2018

Super well composed, a rare classic Northeastern USA specimen collected by the late Ernie Schlichter decades ago. All the Smokey quartz is in perfect parallel=position and very lustrous, being fully translucent to transparent. The Feldspars are a fine "baby blue- green" hue which has always been the most desirable but also the most uncommon from Moat Mt. The specimen seen from the front is in fine shape but the back is contacted and a single small chip is on a the side of the largest Quartz, not seen from the logical display angles. Far better in person there were only a few pockets found with this quality and this was kept by Ernie for his collection. The specimen is sawn on the base from when it was collected, as a result it sits at a perfect display angle. Choice and a quality not seen on the market..
SOLD Rhodochrosite -Scalenohedral form, Classic locale
stock #SOLD 18.1-668
N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
1.7 x 1.5 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
Dec 2018

A transparent gem crystal of bright red Rhodo from the classic N Chwanning #1 mine. This is part of a small find made late last year, the result of years of digging in an attempt to find more of the legendary scalenohedral Rhodos last found over thirty years ago. Those are now some of the most highly prized mineral specimens in the world. This new find was small as were most of the specimens, but the quality was excellent. The Rhodo crystals are perfect, lustrous and with top intense red. This specimen has a series of face modifications not seen in older materials. Condition is perfect, very few of the old find were so completely undamaged. Big display impact for the small size.
Rhodochrosite New find, classic locale

N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2.5 x 2.2 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1350
Dec 2018

A choice and brilliant thumbnail of complex, gem grade Rhodochrosite. This is part of a small find made late last year at the famed Nchwaning #1 mine. The result of years of digging in an attempt to find more of the legendary scalenohedral gem clear Rhodos last produced over thirty years ago. Those are now some of the most highly prized mineral specimens in the world. This new find was small but the quality was excellent. The Rhodo crystals are small but perfect, lustrous and with top intense red. This specimen has a mix of habits and forms all with a luster that is almost impossibly bright, best appreciated in person. A few tiny Hematite crystals are scattered on the piece as well otherwise this is all pure gem Rhodochrosite. We had the opportunity to select a few of the very best pieces from the find as they were unveiled at the Munich show, this is one of them.
