Hydrozincite, Smithsonite - Type locality for Hydrozincite
stock #16.1-685
Bleiberg District, Gailtaier Alpen and Karnische Alpen
Carinthia, Austria
9.5 x 5.6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Worldwide mix summer

A large specimen from Bleiberg (Type locale) that is mostly Hydrozincite some formed over and with Smithsonite. Very well defined bothroids on a cast of Gossan that has additional layers of Hydrozincite seen on the underside. In fine condition, fluorescent and with some luster. One old label included mentions only the Smithsonite. For what is often an un attractive mineral specie, this is quite attractive and well composed.
Fluorite- very clear crystals,
stock #18.1-249
May Stone and Sand Quarry - Fort Wayne, Allen County
Indiana, United States
3.2 x 3.3 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $260
Worldwide mix summer

A choice toenail of very clear sharp and undamaged Fluorite crystals on matrix. These also have a small phantom - a sharp interior cube but only seen with longwave UV light. An older specimen ex Hitchings collection collected over 40 years ago. A fine modern USA classic.
Beryl var Emerald
stock #18.1-239
Carnaiba Mine, Pindobacu, Campo Formoso
Bahia, Brazil
2.3 x 1.5 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160
Worldwide mix summer

A flattened Emerald prism that is doubly terminated (crude at one end), translucent and has a few dark inclusions. From the Camp Formoso zone of Bahia, Brazil, this was in the Hitchings collection and came out over 20 years ago. This zone still produces some small Emeralds but much less often than in the past. On our r visit there last year we did not find a single good specimen to purchase, the mines seem to be minimally active. This is a good example of the style of Emerald from this region, and shows well the typical flattened hexagon form.
Cerussite with Anglesite and Linarite - US Classic locale
stock #18.1-241
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.1 x 2.7 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $125


From the famed Bunker Hill Mine, this is a choice small specimen of sharply crystallized Cerussite with a few small Anglesite prisms as well. Both twins and single crystals are noted. The matrix also includes some small bits of Linarite and what looks like Caledonite in spots on Cerussites. Choice cognac color and sharp form protected in a shallow vug. The condition in the vug is good, the only notable damage is outside the vug itself. Choice for the locale and an attractive Lead secondary from this famed Pyromorphite locality.
Silver- Wires in and on Calcite. Classic locale
stock #18.1-242
Kongsberg Silver mining district, Kongsberg
Buskerud, Norway
2.6 x 1.8 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
Worldwide mix summer

A very sweet thumbnail of crystalline Calcite shot through with wire Silver. From Kongsberg, this piece was in the collections of Ernie Schlichter and Larry White. Classic habit from this classic locale, the specimen displays well from several angles. Excellent dark patina on the wires adds a good contrast to the white Calcite
Gold- flattened crystals
stock #18.1-244
Round Mountain, Open Pit Gold mine, Nye County
Nevada, United States
2.2 x 1.5 x .7 CM (thumbnail)
price: $590
Worldwide mix summer

Brilliant gold color and luster with stacked flattened crystals of Octahedral habit. Very choice and esthetic example of the habit from the great finds at Round Mountain. 3.3 grams, in fine condition and with a strong display esthetic. Ex Larry White collection, this habit was much less typical at the mine, most pieces were wires, leaf or a combination, this is more substantial prismatic flat crystals.
Calcite with inclusions of Malachite, Chalcotrichite and unknown.
stock #18.1-245
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
1.7 x 1.8 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $690
Worldwide mix summer

An incredible, crazy little Tsumeb thumbnail! A ball-like cluster of Calcite rhombs most of which are colored a cadmium yellow. In some other zones the color is deep red from included needle crystals of Chalcotrichite and a few are green from included Malachite. Malachite balls in chains along some areas add a nice green accent making a bright, very colorful specimen. In perfect condition damage wise, this is crystalized all around, a floater. It is not clear what is causing the Cadmium yellow color, it is not typical at all. Ex Hitchings collection dating to mid 1960 vintage. Unique.
Red Beryl on Rhyolite
stock #18.1-237
Wah Wah Mts, Beaver County
Utah, United States
1.6 x 1.2 x .7 CM (thumbnail)
price: $590
Worldwide mix summer

A bright red thumbnail with rich color saturation and sharp form. The Beryl is translucent and in parts transparent. Doubly terminated (crudely on one end) the prism has a crack near the bottom that seems to be natural separation and the related chipping is not damage per se, the crystal is well anchored in this way to the matrix. Red Beryls (sometimes called red Emeralds) are still only found at this one locality and can be incredibly pricy. This a very good value for the specie.
