Wulfenite
stock #15.1-541
Chah Milleh Mine, Anarak Dist., Nain Co.
Esfahan Province, Iran
3.3 x 1.9 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $95
Worldwide mix summer

A cute thumbnail of the orange-red Wulfenites from the 2015 find in Iran. These crystals are remarkably similar to Red Cloud mine Wulfenites but the matrix is a little more complex and has many tiny Wulfenites with different habits. The main Wulfenite is contacted/ chipped on its bottom edge so this is not for a perfectionist but the contact is where this would sit and so is not visible under most display conditions. The price reflects this. Good color, transparency and sharpness.
Beryl var. Emerald on Quartz
stock #18.1-053
Mina El Toro, Chivor Municipio de Chivor
Boyaca, Colombia
5.4 X 4.3 x 3.5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $1200
Worldwide mix summer

Large translucent Emerald crystals protruding from a vuggy Quartz matrix. From a little known mine (Mina El Toro) that is in the Chivor district of Colombia, this is an attractive specimen with rich color. The main crystal is 4.3 CM long and the termination is quite choice. Quartz is a rare matrix for Colombian Emeralds since most are found in Calcite veins. On close inspection the Quartz shows several crystal faces that are distorted and bent, a very odd matrix. Displays well obviously not top facet grade but not priced at 20,000 per carat either. The form and color make this a very attractive specimen that is a fine addition to any suite of Beryls, Colombian minerals or just a collection of nice esthetic pieces.
Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #18.1-278
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
2.2 x 1.4 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160
Worldwide mix summer

A sharp windowpane type Wulfunite crystal on matrix that is dusted with tiny Calcite crystals. In fine condition despite the delicay of the piece, the crystal has a more red color seen from the back and a more yellow-orange from the front.
Quartz with Rutile and Chlorite
stock #18.1-109
Manihar Valley Kuilu District
Himachal Pradesh, India
9.8 x 5.4 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Worldwide mix summer

A remarkable Alpine type quartz from the amazing new finds in the Manihar Valley. The clarity of this Quartz in person looks like a fine Swiss specimen, the small areas of Chlorite and a few sprays of Rutile needles are also distinctive. A few of the prisms in this cluster are doubly terminated, and all are clear enough to see through to see the chlorite matrix on the back side. A very sculptural arrangement, there is no damage here just a few contacts and the whole is a very esthetic cluster.
Wulfenite
stock #18.1-276
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
5.5 x 3.8 x 3.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $375
Worldwide mix summer

Intense bright yellow Wulfenite crystals with minimal matrix in a complex cluster. The crystals show several different edges including beveled, flat and recrystallized jagged edges. Not perfect but in very good condition, there are some tiny chips that do not stand out on display, minimal for such a delicate piece and not distracting. From the great Touissit mines that have been closed for decades now, they once produced some exceptional specimens and this is a choice and richly colored example of one.
Sphalerite -gemmy prismatic
stock #18.1-275
ZCA Mine number 4, Balmat, Balmat-Edwards District, St. Lawrence, Co.
New York, United States
1.6 x 1. x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $200
Worldwide mix summer

Small thumbnail of sharp, glassy transparent crystals of Sphalerite from New York. Textbook forms and with bright luster, the crystals are in fine condition. A modern northeastern US classic locale, these Sphalerites are choice little gems.
Phenakite - Untwinned crystals on matrix
stock #18.1-157
Phenakite mine, Khetchel Village, Molo Quarter, Momeik Township, Kyaukme
Shan State, Myanmar (Burma)
4.6 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

Sharp glassy crystals of Phenakite perched on Microcline and Quartz. Most Myanmar Phenakite is twinned, this is the more rare untwinned form of blocky crystals which are in fine condition. Matrix examples are also quite uncommon, most specimens are loose single six sided prisms. A good value for a choice, uncommon type Phenakite.
Wherryite (type locale) with Caledonite and Leadhillite, Diaboleite etc.
stock #13.1-403
Mammoth Mine, Tiger, Arizona
Arizona, United States
3.4 x 2.6 x 2.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330
Worldwide mix summer

The sort of colorful rarity array that has made the Tiger Arizona world famous. The most obvious specie here is the bright blue Caledonite in microcrystals, some associated Leadhillite is seen in and near the main mass, two small crystal sections that look like Paralaurionite are noted but hard to confirm. The sides and back have green to yellow green zones of Wherryite and a few bright blue spots of Diaboleite and or Linarite. As is often the case with complex Tiger specimens there are several other very small crystals seen at 20-40X magnification that are not identified. A rich large thumbnail from this venerable classic locale.
