Amethyst- flower form
stock #Alec- 24-412
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
8.4 x 6.4 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
new june 17

Bright luster, rich color and with very fine esthetics, this is a choice Amethyst flower from Karur. This form of Quartz is known from just a few locations (Brazil etc) but by far the best color, clarity and sharpest habits are from Tamil Nadu in Karur, India. This locality produces small numbers of specimens in a good year, some years there are almost none. This is far better than average, better in person. Close examination shows most crystals are thickly included with golden needles, much like Rutile but usually identified as Lepidocrocite.
Fluorite on Quartz and Calcite, Ex. Szenics collection
stock #17.1-AX-27-231
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan Province, China
10.2 x 7.8 x 7.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400
new june 17

The ball like stepped cubo-octahedral Fluorites from Shangbao have become highly desirable and often quite expensive. This is an excellent and unusal specimen with fine display surfaces on front and back, almost a perfect floater. The individual Fluorites reach 2.7 CM and are a little deeper green than seen in the photos. In the square central windows of the crystals the interiors can be clearly seen as mostly glass clear, gemmy. Distinctive specimen from the finds vintage 2005, ex Terry Szenics collection. Very three dimensional and far better in person, this came from a short period when these could be obtained, prior and later specimens are quite different and to my eye not nearly as unique.
Stilbite -classic location with Fluorite, Albite and Clinochlore
stock #16.1-236
Malmberget, Gallivare
Lappland, Sweden
9.2 x 3.8 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
new june 17

Very fine, sharp bi-colored Stilbites from the Malmberget Mine that is world famed for a great find of gemmy Calcite. This is a rather old specimen with a few very small near colorless Fluorites and associated minerals. The Stilbites are quite sharply terminated reaching over 2 CM long and with bright luster. In excellent condition, no visible damage.
Fluorite, Pink single crystal
stock #17.1-AX-20-079
Planggenstock, Goscheneralp, Goschenen Valley
Canton Uri, Switzerland
2.1 x 1.8 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
new june 17

Alpine pink Fluorite with a slight zoning, frosted faces and classic habit. Mounted on a turned wooden spindle this is a nice thumbnail that wont break the bank. Not perfect, there is contacting and cleaving on the underside so this is really about the top half of the octahedron, which is the logical display side. As a result the price is far less than usual for a nice Swiss Fluorite. Excellent value
Anglesite with Linarite etc- EX Lechner, Shortmann
stock #13.1-069
Bruche Mine, Musen, Siegerland
North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
4.8 x 3.9 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $350
new june 17

A classic specimen from the famed Lechner collection of Austria, later sold by the Schortmanns in 1950-52. A Gossan and decomposed Galena matrix full of vugs hosts sharp and in some cases gemmy Anglesites. Scattered small Linarite crystals are near, on and in the Anglesites. The largest Anglesite is 8MM, several crystal forms and possibly some twinning is noted. Choice old piece.
Corundum V. Ruby in Schist
stock #Alec-12-268
Zazatotsy Quarry, Ihosy District, Horombe Region
Fianarantsoa, Madagascar
6.8 x 3.4 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $730
new june 17

A big and sharp (2.7CM) main Ruby crystal is well exposed and nicely perched on the matrix. Very good color with some purple hues seen in some lighting that indicates that the core of the crystal may be a blue Sapphire. The crystal habit is the rare flattened habit with one overdeveloped face that dominates the prism. In fine condition with excellent esthetics, this also shows the crossing lines of inclusions that cause a star reflection on the terminations.
Elbaite -Vintage Black cap or Moorshead form, Type locale
stock #16.1-230
Elba Island, Livorno Province
Tuscany, Italy
1.3 x .6 x .5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $440
new june 17

A very old, classic specimen mounted on a 19th century wooden pedestal. Old labels are included one of which shows a date of 1810 or 1870 (very hard to read). Either way this is a classic, antique piece with very good condition, form and clarity in the body. Type locality and a great addition to any display of vintage or modern tourmaline.
Fluorite with epitaxial overgrwths on Quartz
stock #17.1-AX-14-294
Riemvasmaak, Kakamas district
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
5.4 x 3.8 x 2.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $770
new june 17

Intense translucent green Octahedron perfectly set on sharp Quartz crystals. Ata quick glance a fine and attractive piece but the really significant feature is seen on a closer look. All the corners of the Octa have colorless epitaxial caps of Fluorite that is also well crystallized. A textbook perfect and esthetic specimen with incredible form. In undamaged condition and with top color, this was from a small find at Riemvasmaak 3 years ago.
