Elbaite -Gem crystal, classic find
stock #16.1-220
Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
2.7 x 1.4 x 1.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575
Spring 2017

A classic form from a now classic find. The steep termination of this Tourmaline and the blue green color is a textbook type for the Newry "big pocket". Nearly all gem grade, sharp and clear with a slight touch of color zoning. While huge amounts were found in this big strike close to 50 years ago, most was cut for gemstock. This large thumbnail has a few tiny crystals of Lepidolite on one edge. Some tiny rough areas as seen in the photos but for the locality this is in very fine condition.
Fluorite -Octahedron on Matrix
stock #10.1-296
Turkey Creek, Grant County
New Mexico, United States
4.2 x 3.7 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Spring 2017

A perfect, complete and sharp New Mexican Fluorite, ex Marty Zinn. Even though it is not stated on the label this is certainly a Turkey creek specimen. Violet at the corners and green at the core, this rests on a tiny shard of contrasting matrix. This style and quality are never seen on the market now.
Eosphorite on Rose Quartz- ex Richard Gaines
stock #Alec-10-786
Lavra de Ilha, Taquaral, Itinga
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7 x 4.7 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Spring 2017

Delicate sprays of perfect transparent Eosphorite crystals are clustered on crystalline Rose quartz. From the Richard Gaines collection, this is older material from several decades ago. The color contrast and sparkling luster make this often unattractive mineral an attractive display specimen. Even better in person.
Morganite Beryl with Elbaite and Lepidolite
stock #15.1-343
White Queen Mine, Pala, San Diego County
California, United States
5.5 x 5.1 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $825
Spring 2017

A classic USA Beryl Var. Morganite with nice form and a peachy-pink color that contrasts well with the deep purple matrix. Small green Elbaite Tourmalines are scattered on the matrix giving extra color. The largest crystal is 3.8 CM across and quite lustrous. The backside is partly contacted and has adhering quartz, so the best display is as shown. Attractive, in good overall condition and from the renowned White Queen Mine, this was collected more than 20 years ago but likely is a lot older. A good value for one of these
Elbaite - unusual color zoning on Clevelandite
stock #16.1-565
Stak Nala, Haramoush Mountains
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
3.8 x 2.8 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $480
Spring 2017

A very fine small miniature with two super sharp gem Elbaites in an esthetic arrangement. From a recent find at Stak Nala, this pocket had an unusual zoning for this mine with a colorless area and a faint line of blue at the top that is captured in some of the photos. Depending on the lighting the colorless area can look slightly violet, the crystals grade to a dark green that is opaque near the bottom but translucent higher up. In fine condition the terminations are perfect even at 10x magnification. While similar to some older Stak Nala pieces this zoning is not like the more typical recent finds. Small but very choice!
Quartz - Herkimer-like habit
stock #10.1-487
Cong Ly
Hunan Province, China
6.3 x 4.2 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Spring 2017

Very sharp and perfectly transparent, this sizable prism has a slightly smoked hue. We obtained a few of these in China almost 15 years ago, the exact location itself was not visited but the miners who sold these called it Cong Ly, they indicated it was not a true mine but a hillside. We have never seen any exactly like these since then. I would love to find this locality today! The bottom as seen has a break and contact where it was removed but the prism and termination are perfect undamaged by naked eye. Only with 20X magnification can I find a few micro bruises but no chips. A pretty Quartz that has both an alpine look and a Herkimer like habit.
Hemimorphite- Finger like growth
stock #16.1-628
Wenshan County, Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture
Yunnan, China
4.8 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $475
Spring 2017

An exceptionally esthetic botryoidal growth of Hemimorphite with a rich blue green color. Looks a lot like a Smithsonite. This is in undamaged condition, has perfect wet-look luster and a coating of micro clear Hemimorphite crystals to add a little sparkle. Wenshan has become a world class producer of Hemimorphite but this habit is not at all typical, a very choice miniature.
Barite on Rhodochrosite
stock #Alec-27-248
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
4.4 x 2.3 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Spring 2017

Glass clear Barite blades in perfect condition sitting on crystallized pink Rhodochrosite. From the prolific finds at Cerro Warihuyn, which produced some of the best Barites found in decades- esthetic, attractive and very affordable. There are a lot of these on the market but this is well above the average miniature, way better in person. The locality is supposedly almost exhaused, which will be a great loss to the mineral world!
