Manakarra, Mumuju area, Sulawesi Barat Province
Sulawesi Island, Indonesia
4.5 x 3.1 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Spring 2017

Esthetic and undamaged specimen with several shades or purple, violet and green colors, a very rare combination. There is a lot of this material on the market now in all price ranges but little is of this quality. Attractive on all sides, a 360 degree piece. The exciting new finds of Indonesian Chalcedony or purple grape agate has been big news in the mineral world. This piece has very well defined balls and a velvet-matte luster. We dug through tons of this material and found just a few perfect, complete, colorful and sculptural pieces. This one is from that top .001 percent, pristine and pretty.

Amethyst -Siamese twin scepters
stock #17.1-135
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
2.4 x .8 x .5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $520
Spring 2017

A killer thumbnail of conjoined scepters with amazing form and perfection. The scepter heads have many tiny inclusions that look like rutile but could be lepidocrocite or similar material. The delicate purple color is softly zoned and all is fully transparent. No damage, from recent finds at Karur, we are very active seeking good materials from this locality, it has great potential but produces very few fine pieces like this. Exceptional for the locale or from anyplace. Choice, esthetic and really unusual.
SOLD Rhodochrosite- gemmy crystals on Sulphide finger
stock #SOLD 17.1-136
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
4.5 x 2.1 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $0
Spring 2017

As fine as it can get! Perfect crystals of gem clear Rhodochrosite studding a slender finger of Sulphide matrix which gives great contrast. Elegant crystal arrangement with top color and luster, simply a top miniature specimen that is 360 degrees viewable. The terminations of the Rhodos are all quite perfect too, even under strong magnification. Clearly a fine competition grade miniature. Ex M. Budil, F Gaboury, from a find at Uchucchacua, Peru in 1999. It is incredible that even with this many crystals the specimen is still perfect and undamaged.

stock #Alec12-581
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
6.2 x 4.2 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $285
Spring 2017

A nice classic Franklin, New Jersey Willemite crystal well exposed on Calcite. Vivid fluorescence, sharp prism faces and not acid etched out of the matrix (which was usually done but looks melted and is less desirable). The crystal is typically crude and slightly rounded on some edges with natural cracks but no repairs.
Beryl v. Aquamarine with Rutile on Clevelandite

An older, quite attractive Pakistani Beryl that is almost has a Heliodore hue but not quite. The two prisms are well terminated and have an unusual melted look . There is Rutile as well in several spots. Attractive arrangement, no breaks or repairs.
Apophyllite (disco ball habit) on Stilbite
stock #17.1-AX- 21-022
Rahuri, Ahmadnagar District,
Maharashtra, India
8.6 x 6.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Spring 2017

Probably the most desirable and rarest form of the mineral Apophyllite is the so called disco ball habit. Originally found some years ago while digging a well in Rahuri, these created a sensation. More recently a nearby well yielded a smaller find, all quickly sold. This specimen is from the first well, collected by the Maki family. Excellent esthetics with glass clear undamaged crystals, with two separate radiating hemispheres (over 3.5 CM) nicely perched on the crystallized matrix. A choice example.
