Cerussite- gem clear twins
stock #17.1-AX-26-009
Kombat Mine, Kombat, Grootfontein District,
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
5.3 x 3.2 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250
new june 17

A killer gem clear twinned cluster of glasslike crystals with fine cognac color. From the legendary finds in 1969-72 at Kombat that are now considered the finest gem Cerussite ever. This has several strong impact display angles, and the transparency in person is striking. A small attached reticulated cluster adds a little contrast and some faces show a cats eye effect in strong lighting. Nearly all fine facet grade but it would be a crime to cut these. Good Kombat twins are rare to find and treasured by their owners.
Chrysocolla Ps after Malachite (after Azurite)
stock #15.1-329
Lupoto mine, Lubumbashi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
8.3 x 6 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
new june 17

Really fine form and rich color on this specimen from the recent finds at Luputo. The pseudomorph retains the shape of the original Azurite crystals that were rep[laced by Malachite and finally replaced by the blue Chrysocolla. The delicate array of crystals is on a Gossan matrix and in excellent condition despite the fragility. The discovery of this material made big news in the mineral world. This is a choice example with particularly distinct crystal shapes well presented.
Barite - Phantom crystal
stock #Alec-22-180
Muddy Creek, Rio Grande Valley
Colorado, United States
3.6 x 3 x .6 CM (miniature)
price: $50

A simple single crystal of Barite with a dark phantom zone. This also has a druse of tiny sparkling Barites that add a little flash. In good condition and a nice example of the find.
Amethyst -
stock #15.1-520
Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola
Mpumalanga, South Africa
7.3 x 5.6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
new june 17

From the find 3 years ago in the almost unpronounceable locale of Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola. This is the sought after deep purple color that has not been found in more recent digging there. This small cabinet piece has excellent form and color. "Cactus" habit quartz are usually much more pale or are not even purple. The royal purple this piece has is the most uncommon and most desired. In fine undamaged condition,
Vesuvianite- complex clusster with 6 colors
stock #17.AL-505
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
7.5 x 7.4 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $3600
new june 17

A crazy, complex specimen that is composed of several generation of well crystallized Vesuvianite in a riot of colors. From deep emerald green to magenta, yellow and more this single specimen seems to have most of the brightest color spectrum for Vesuvianite. The crystals are sized from druzy sprays to prisms of 3 CM and are in several habits, many are also bicolored. This is fully crystallized on all sides, overall in great condition, some contacts and minor chipping can be found on a few areas , but the best display faces are free of damage. Over the years it was working, the Jeffrey mine produced the worlds best and most colorful Vesuvianites in many habits and colors. This specimen provides many of the colors that collectors search for from here, presented in a sizable, complex piece that invites gazing. Far better in person too.
Serandite with Analcime, Aegirine
stock #17.1-280
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 2.1 x 3.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $190
new june 17

An esthetic cluster of well formed leaf-like pink Serandite with contrasting white Analcime crystals. A classic association from Mt St Hillaire, the only locale where sizable, fine crystals were found. Minor black Aegirine is also noted. A lot of visual impact for a small specimen. In excellent condition.
Pyromorphite
stock #17.1-279 (A7)
Bad Ems
Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
2.8 x 2.6 x 2.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90
new june 17

Choice, classic thumbnail of flesh colored Pyromorphites showing fine Barrel shaped crystal form and hoppered terminations. A small bit of adhering Barite is noted but mostly this is all Pyro. A nice arrangement very three dimensional with good luster. Magnification shows the main crystals are undamaged but areas at the edges have some chipping, not visible by naked eye. A good, affordable German specimen.
Chalcopyrite on Sphalerite w. Pyrite-
stock #17.1-A19-098
Casapalca Mine, Casapalca, Huarochiri Province
Lima Department, Peru
9.8 x 7.2 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
new june 17

An outstanding cabinet display piece of fine, large (to 4.5 CM) crystals of iridescent Chalcopyrite on contrasting Sphalerite. Although Chalcopyrite is a common mineral, great crystals especially large ones are surprisingly rare. The patina and metallic color play make this especially attractive. An older Casapalca specimen in fine condition overall, with a few small chips mostly on outer edges. As Chalcopyrite is very brittle it is rare to have such large crystals in this fine condition.
