Rhodochrosite -elongated Scalenohedral habit
stock #18-AX-10-930
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
4.8 x 2.3 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $490


Gem clear, bright and lustrous Rhodochrosite crystals from the now classic Uchucchacua Mine in Peru. The main crystal on the matrix is just over 2 CM long and there are several other smaller crystals as well. Protected in a narrow vug the main crystal is quite perfect and damage free. While Rhodochrosite can be found all over the world there are no more than 3 places that have ever produced crystals of this size, quality and habit. Of those localities Uchucchuacua is the only place that still is an occasional producer. Well beyond average quality yet still relatively affordable for a fine Rhodo.
Fluorite
stock #19.1-501
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.3 x 3 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $520


An especially fine, perfect and odd "Carthage Corner" Fluorite that is almost colorless but with a hint of purple in person. These strange etched crystal corners are quite incredible and distinctive for the Elmwood mines. This one is especially exotic with extra finger-like growths one edge which also look like tiny "corners". The specimen is displayable from all sides and the geometric etchings are as sharp as any I have seen. An American classic and a choice Fluorite for any suite. Even better in person.
Microcline V. Amazonite - new find
stock #19.1-745
10 Percenter Claim, Lake George, Park County
Colorado, United States
6.6 x 4.5 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $360


A new find of classic habit from pockets opened in late summer 2019. These very richly colored and well crystalized Amazonites follow in the fine tradition of fine Colorado Feldspars. Well above average intense deep blue-green color and bright luster, these crystals are translucent and the condition is fine. This piece has rich color zoning in person and the edges are remarkably distinct, sharp and clean.
Microcline V. Amazonite -new find
stock #19.1-744
10 Percenter Claim, Lake George, Park County
Colorado, United States
7.2 x 5.5 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $190


A new find of classic habit from pockets opened in late summer 2019. These very richly colored and well crystalized Amazonites follow in the fine tradition of fine Colorado Feldspars. Well above average intense deep blue-green color and bright luster, these crystals are translucent and the condition is fine.
Stephanite on Quartz - classic locale
stock #19.1-506
St. Andreasburg, Harz Mts.
Saxony, Germany
4.3 x 3.4 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $400


A very rich and well formed Silver sulphide specimen with a mass of Stephanite crystals, many showing the six sided habit that looks a lot like Polybasite. Fine luster and a nice contrast with the slender Quartz prisms some of which are doubly terminated. The Stephanites are in remarkable condition for such an obviously old specimen of this delicate mineral. Especially impressive under magnification. The St Andreasburg mines are some of the greatest historical Silver mines in the world. The Harz mountains were already being worked in the middle ages, even in the 10th century, while St Andreasburg began in the 1600 era and became a major site, with very deep workings. Between 1910 and 1930 most all the mines were finished, we have sonly such specimens to reflect on this era.
Siegenite on Galena
stock #7.AE-289
West Fork Mine, Reynolds County
Missouri, United States
4.3 x 3.7 x 4.4 CM (miniature)
price: $390


Rich growth of Siegenite crystals on Galena which is in cubes, modified cubes and octahedrons. Quite esthetic for this rare mineral (Cobalt Nickel Sulfide). Ex collections of Steven Chamberlain obtained from the Lendall Hill collection. Fine contrast and with many excellent display angles.
Grossular -fine Gem Garnet
stock #18-AX-31-006
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
1.7 x 1.7 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $950


Bright, lustrous, colorful and incredibly well formed gem Garnet from the Jeffrey Mine. A tiny bit of Diopside matrix and a small side car crystal are the only additions. In fine condition as seen, a quite superb thumbnail with well defined striations and a glass-like look. Single complete and well isolated crystals of this size are especially desirable. There were never many of top quality when the quarry was working but now these are just never seen.
Pseudomalachite
stock #19.1-406
Lubietova, Slovenske Rudohorie Mts,
Banska Bystrica Region, Slovakia
9 x 7.7 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $480


Large and superb, rich old specimen of Pseudomalachite from the ancient mining area of Lubitova. This locality was called Libethen by the Germans and Libetbanya by the Hungarians, but is now in Slovakia, and is Lubitova. Mined since the Bronze age and closed in 1863, this is one of the great locales of Europe and this specimen is an outstanding Pseudomalachite which has formed on and arround a gossan type matrix. In addition to the large botryoidal green masses there are hundreds of tiny spheres and a few stalactitic fingers in a dense mass of deep green. Very fine piece for the specie and for the locality.
