Fluorite, Helvite and Lollingite
stock #A-14B-117
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
8.9 x 7.9 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $3600
Worldwide mix summer

A crazy but extraordinary piece, of a superb quality that is rarely available on the web, Complex, with colorless transparent Fluorites perched on very sharp Lollingite crystals. A few of the Fluorites have inclusions of Helvite crystals and there are fine rosettes of Helvite crystals on the Lollingite as well. In outstanding condition, this can displays in many orientations with strong impact. From the first significant discovery at Huanggang, the form of the Fluorite is textbook perfect. Superb in person, a very choice top Chinese specimen.
Mimetite with Wulfenite
stock #13.1-139
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.7 x 3.6 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $440
Worldwide mix summer

A choice "wet-look" Mimetite with bright yellow-orange color. In fine condition as seen, from the 2012 pocket at Mina Ojuela, one of the best discoveries there in many years. The form is noticably different from the old San Pedro de Coralitos locality that is now very uncommon and expensive. On this piece the luster and color is noticably brighter, while the Mimetites are more tall and slender. Bright and attractive piece with some tiny Wulfenites scattered about that are best seen with magnification. Excellent value.
Pyromorphite
stock #18.1-282
Rosenburg Mine, Braubach, Bad Ems District, Lahn Valley
Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
4.2 x 2.3 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $680
Worldwide mix summer

A perfect, undamaged small Pyromorphite with a pleasing form from the classic Bad Ems area. A thin plate of matrix crystalized all around with mustard green pyros some of which have a yellow tip. This region is world renowned for the many fine Pyromorphites that it once produced, especially the large brown hoppered crystals. This old piece is of a less common style and color. Remarkable to be 360 degree displayable and completely damage free. One face of the specimen has less green and more typical brown but even that side displays well too. The Rosenburg Mine closed in 1963, and it was most active in the late 19th and early 20th century. Specimens of this quality are usually quite old and have passed through many hands, making it rare to be so pristine.
Chalcedony on red Scolecite
stock #18.1-006
Malegaon, Nasik
Maharashtra, India
5 x 3.6 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $975
Worldwide mix summer

The "caviar agate" type of Chalcedony that is both very esthetic and now very hard to find. The transparent to translucent balls of Chalcedony are perched on needle crystals of a dark red Scolecite. They really do look like large fish eggs. Rich color and wet look luster make this specimen stand out. There were not many of these found and few had this very bright color. Strange but beautiful Indian specimen.
Anglesite pseudo after Cerussite -Classic
stock #15.1-477
Broken Hill, Yancowinna County
New South Wales, Australia
4.3 x 3.1 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Worldwide mix summer

A rare and elegant pseudomorph, the twinned crystals of Cerussite have been fully replaced by Anglesite and the outer surface is covered on all sides by sharp small Anglesites. The specimen is in exceptional condition and is a floater, with no attachment point, crystallized all around. These Pseudomorphs were found long ago in the early upper mine workings. This choice example is remarkable for perfection and classic form, a rarity almost never available.
Scorodite
stock #15.1-504
Oumil Mine, Bou Azzer, Ouarzazate
Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
5.3 x 4.4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

A good clean vug of densely packed Scorodite crystals from Bou Azzer. The crystals reach 6mm but most are smaller. The color is mostly green but a few blue-purple prisms are seen on some edges. From finds about 12 years ago, this is a very good representative specimen with good coverage.
Beryl var Goshenite with Clevelandite, Schorl
stock #18.1- 280

Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.2 x 4.5 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Worldwide mix summer

A clear, colorless Beryl crystal with double termination (crude but complete) and very glassy faces. Fine transparency and interesting internal structures are easily visible. It is surprising how very uncommon colorless Beryl (Goshenite) is. This specimen is ex Les Hitchings collection, obtained in 1968 by him. A high percentage of this is facet grade gem, the backside is contacted and included by Clevelandite but overall the prism is complete and choice.
Copper with Cuprite
stock #18.1-281
Ray Mine, Ray District, Dripping Springs Mountain, Pinal county
Arizona, United States
6.1 x 5.7 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Worldwide mix summer

A thin fan like sheet and branching Copper crystals that is partly coated with Cuprite. The Cuprite is in epitaxial crystals and flattened on the Copper. From the Ray mine where many fine Coppers were found, this example is illustrative of the thin vein fillings and coatings that were so significant there. In fine condition and a colorful example, some secondary Copper oxides add a green color to contrast the red Cuprite and metallic Copper hues.
