Barite on Dolomite and Rhodochrosite
stock #AX-12-503
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
10.9 x 7.9 x 6.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $725
Dec 2018

A fine cabinet specimen that is far beyond the average Barite from Cerro Warihuyn. The Barite is a smoky golden color, very clear and mostly all transparent. The matrix is a mix of Dolomite and Rhodochrosite which adds a nice pink contrast. A few tiny dark Sulphide crystals are noted too, but they are minor in the composition. The free standing Barites are very fine for this important locality, 4.7 CM across with nice zoning. No damage to note except a small chip on the backside of the Barite that is not visible from any logical display angle. The presentation side is in perfect condition. Far better in person. This locale had produced lots of Barite and is world renown for them, this specimen is exceptional compared to the vast majority of the find.
Calcite - manganoan
stock #17.1-129
Langyang Mine
Fujian, China
12.1 x 7.7 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $675
Dec 2018

Like a pagoda on a snowy mountain, this is an especially esthetic example of this habit. The front display surface is in impeccable condition, the Quartz and Calcite are perfect, undamaged. The backside is incomplete but not visible in any display angle. The final cap or top story of the Pagoda has a classic three faced termination and the whole has great luster as well as contrast. There werenot many of these in such fine condition, the find was in 2016 and there have not been more as far as we know.
Paradamite with Smithsonite
stock #18.1-570
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
3.4 x 1.7 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Dec 2018

A killer Paradamite with outstanding color, form and with contrasting Smithsonite. Paradamite is a very rare mineral and choice pieces are not often available for less than a small fortune (sometimes even a large one) From the recent find, this has the best glassy luster, several crystal habits showing and the quality is top. The last good find of Paradamite was almost 20 years ago, and disappeared right away.
Pyromorphite -hoppered crystals.
stock #18.1-634
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
4.8 x 3.8 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $520
Dec 2018

A pretty Pyromorphite with better than average, very distinct hoppered crystals on smaller prisms. From late finds at the amazing Daoping mine, this is a not the typical color from here, it is more like an olive green hue in person. Choice and in excellent condition, Daoping has become a great modern classic locality and this sort of Pyromorphite shows why.
Aragonite- radiating crystal clusters
stock #18.1-490
Sefrou, Sefrou Province
Fes-Meknes region, Morocco
8.6 x 4.8 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
Dec 2018

Very impressive form and esthetics for any Aragonite. Ball like radiating clusters of crystals in elongated translucent prismatic form twins that are joined in a chain. Some internal coloring on some areas adds a nice contrast. Fine condition overall, a few chips are seen on the backside but otherwise this is a 360 degree piece, displayable from most any angle.
Grossular -
stock #18-AX-19-232
Sierra de la Cruz, Municipio de Sierra Mojada
Coahuila, Mexico
4.8 x 4 x 3.1 (miniature)
price: $160
Dec 2018

Large red-purple "Raspberry" Garnets on contrasting matrix from Coahuilla. The crystals reach 1.4 CM and some are intergrown. Aside from some contacts the crystals are unusually complete and well exposed on the matrix. This locale was still active and producing until about 4 years ago. This style of Garnet is unique to this zone which over the years produced many fine specimens. A good, affordable specimen.
SOLD Wulfenite on Quartz- new find
stock #SOLD 18.1-544
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.9 x 3.4 x 1.7 CM (small miniature)
price: $0
Dec 2018

From an exciting small new (2018) find, bright gem Wulfenites set on contrasting Quartz crystals. In excellent condition as seen, this has top transparency, bright luster and is overall super esthetic. From San Carlos, a mine only known for Vanadinites that had come out almost 20 years ago. Choice and pretty, we hope to see more from here but nothing is ever certain in guessing the future of a particular locale. This is one of the very best specimens of about three hundred produced.
Dioptase
stock #18-AX-14-218
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
3.4 x 2.4 x 1.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $620
Dec 2018

A super clean, brilliant toenail sized Dioptase from finds at Kaokoveld in 2012. Very sharp and lustrous crystals in excellent condition and having an esthetic arrangement. While Dioptase is known from quite a few localities in the world but this sort of very fine specimen is from either Tsumeb (closed forever) or Kaokoveld, bot being in Namibia. Top emerald green color with transparent areas set this apart, better in person.
