Sphalerite - gemmy
stock #18.1-221
Rucheng Mine, Caojia, Nuanshui, Chenzhou
Hunan Province, China
7.9 x 6.8 x 2.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
Worldwide mix summer

A nearly pure plate of large crystals up to 3CM across that are transparent in many areas and have a rich dark red hue. A single Quartz crystal on one edge is the only non Sphalerite part of this specimen, there is no matrix. In very clean condition, all the crystals on the display side are undamaged, contacted on back only. From the famed finds made in the 2000-2005 era in Hunan province. These localities are all closed now and specimens have become quite rare on the market in this fine quality.
Pyromorphite- Mimetite series, Classic locale
stock #18.1-220
Donori, Calagari Province,
Sardinia, Italy
5.9 x 4.7 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

Choice, quite lustrous green Pyromorphite (originally labeled as Mimetite) from the old locality at Donori, Sardinia. Very good coverage and deep apple green color, a few small crude crystals are seen with strong magnification, but overall this is a botryoidal specimen. Quite three dimensional and in fine condition, this is much richer than most I have seen from the locality. These are now often labelled as being Pyromorphite- Mimetites as it seems there are both species in the deposit and may be zoned.
Goshenite & Fluorite on Schorl
stock #18-AX-14-365
Erongo Mountain, Karibib
Erongo Region, Namibia
4.2 x 3.3 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Worldwide mix summer

A fine miniature from the Erongo that features a gem clear Goshenite Beryl perched atop a cluster of purple Fluorite that is offset with lustrous black Schorl. In excellent condition the front display side is in perfect shape, the base area is contacted. Few of this find were so distinctive. Choice, esthetic and well balanced.
Fluorite on Sphalerite
stock #8.1-273
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
14.9 x 9.8 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Worldwide mix summer

A larger cabinet specimen of a modern American classic. Two zoned purple to white cubes sit on opposite sides of a lustrous Sphalerite matrix. A few small Dolomite crystals add a nice accent as well. In very good condition and quite esthetic, the backside is contacted but not seen from display side. The cubes are 5.7 CM across diagonally.
Pyromorphite
stock #7AE-036
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
8.8 x 7.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $875
Spring update

Large mass of pure Pyromorphite in 3 dimensional hills with good grass green color. From the Daoping mine near Yangshao, this was mined before 2005 in the upper oxidized zone. That area has now been finished and the mine is closed. Well covered on the face with dense crystals, nearly all are perfect a few chips can be found with careful looking, but obviously not very noticable. The price reflects this. The luster is mixed, some crystals are quite bright and others have a more matte look. A good rich, sizable Pyromorphite from an important mine.
Pyrite Pseudo after Marcasite with Dolomite
stock #0170-JM-2630
Nanisivik Mine, Nanisivik, Baffin Island
Nunavut Territory, Canada
8.7 x 6.1 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $250
Spring update

Golden, sharp and brilliant, Pyrites have fully replaced Marcasite crystals and these are well clustered on a series of large Dolomite crystals. Older specimen, ex John Marshall collection, obtained in 1991, there is no sign of instability or other problems as can happen with Pyrite pseudomorphs. A few crystals do have edge chips but most are perfect and complete. Attractive example with textbook twinned crystals from an very interesting, remote location.
Calcite -Pineapple habit, on Quartz with Fluorite and Dolomite
stock #5.1-074.3
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan Province, China
8.3 x 5.3 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $280


The distinctive "pineapple" style Calcite from Shangbao came out sporadically in the 2000-2008 era, this is a very choice example of the habit. Set on a matrix of sparkling Quartz the addition of a few scattered purple Fluorites adds extra contrast. In fine condition as seen, the terminations of the Calcites are transparent and the body of the prism is more milky, all with the "pineapple color". Top Shangbao Fluorites are now regarded as some of the worlds best (and most expensive). 15 years ago at the mine the Calcites were more expensive from the miners than Fluorites because they were more rare and hard to extract intact. Times change.
Stibnite- tabular crystals
stock #7.AE-290B
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
7.6 x 6.2 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Spring update

Choice old Cavnic Stibnite with the rare type of flattened crystals. Sharp and clean, fine metallic luster and very three dimensional. These mines are closed and specimens of this quality are not often available. Even more impressive in person.
