Beryl Var Emerald, Rare Locale (Norway)
stock #16.1-250
Byrud Emerald Mine, Minnesund
Eidsvoll, Norway
5.6 x 3.8 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Spring update

Good quality gem clear emeralds on matrix from this seldom seen locale. This mine closed in 1909 after just 10 years, and produced a few good Gem crystals but was not productive enough to compete. It is possible today to visit the dumps and a few Emeralds have been found but usually much smaller than this one. Norwegian Emeralds of quality are very rare in the market. The largest crystal here is 1.4 CM long with very good color and clarity, but not terminated, with chipping and broken areas as seen. Despite the damage it is far better than typical from this locale and this is a choice piece for the area. The color here is due to Vanadium, not Chrome as seen in Colombia. The quality is better than typical Vanadium Beryls at other localities.
Quartz var Amethyst with movable bubble
stock #17.1-529
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
7.7 x 2.7 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Spring update

A sharp, gem clear Goboboseb Amethyst that has a good sized movable bubble and excellent zoning. Unlike most of these so called Brandburgs, this one has no chips or dings, and is far better in person. The Goboboseb area is a very harsh place for digging Quartz, and the small miners camped there do not often find crystals this clean. These Quartz are one of the mineral kingdoms best values.
Sphalerite- Dark red crystals on druzy Quartz
stock #6.2-456
Shuikoushan Lead Zinc Mine, Changning, Hengyang Pref.
Hunan Province, China
7.6 x 7.1 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Spring update

Dark red gemmy Sphalerite crystals with typical complex twinning are well exposed on contrasting matrix. Excellent luster, the Sphalerites with backlighting glow a bright red, they can seem very dark without it. From vintage 2003 finds at Shuikoushan in excellent condition with no visible damage. The matrix is druzy quartz that has a reddish hue. Very esthetic, these were once found in large quantities but few were this choice, they are no longer available.
Cassiterite variety Needle Tin
stock #18.1-104
Minera Monserrat, Challapampa, Poopo Province
Oruro Department, Bolivia
5.6 x 5.5 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Spring update

A very unusual specimen from Boliva that looks like an old Cornish "needle tin". A three dimensional matrix densely covered with delicate accicular crystals of brown Cassiterite. In fine condition as seen, ex. Hitchings collection. Especially impressive under magnification, this is an uncommon habit and a well crystallized example.
Smithsonite
stock #18.1-103
Choix, Municipio de Choix
Sinola, Mexico
4.3 x 3.8 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Spring update

Bright pink Smithsonite in a bubbly habit with no adhering matrix. Fine color and luster in an attractive shell-like cast structure. From the long known prospects at Choix, Simaloa, Mexico. Sadly this locality has had many problems and has stopped producing due to cartel violence. The bright colored Smithsonites from here are now highly regarded as fine specimens.
Fluorite-
stock #17.1-544
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
2.3 x 1.8 x 1.5CM (thumbnail)
price: $150
Spring update

Brilliant gemmy green Fluorite thumbnail, with intergrown cubo-octahedral crystals on Muscovite. In fine condition as seen, from a small recent (2017) pocket on Hohenstein. Not typical at all, a fine thumb!
Red Quartz with Fluorite
stock #18.AX-14-342
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
3.1 x 1 x .9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $340
Spring update

An outstanding thumbnail of bright red quartz (included by Hematite) that is decorated with deep purple cubes of Fluorite. Eyecatching esthetics and strong color the Quartz is in excellent condition showing some zoning and no damage. 20 X magnification finds a few micro rough areas on the Fluorites but that is not seen by naked eye. Choice and very unusual. From a small find a few years ago in the Orange River near the Namibian Border.
Vivianite -Single gemmy crystal
stock #18.1-105
Tomokoni Mine, Machacamarca District
Potosi, Bolivia
4.5 x 2.3 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $325
Spring update

A gem clear single crystal with excellent dark green to bluish color, and glasslike luster. Sharp and elegant, this is at its best with some backlight to bring out the inner colors. On the backside some small matrix is adhering, but mostly this is a single, loose crystal. Typical curving of the termination can be seen at some angles. Choice older specimen from 1980 vintage finds, excellent condition.
