Sphalerite and Pyrite
stock #A-10-908
Nanisivik Mine, Nanisivik, Baffin Island
Nunavut Territory, Canada
5.4 x 4.5 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $185


A well formed specimen of both Sphalerite and Pyrite from a location not seen very often but has produced some fine things like this. Great three dimensional structure and separation of individual crystals, this is as good an example as I have ever seen from this remote locale. In very good condition, the pyrite are in several habits and forms while the Sphalerites reach up to 2 CM and have nice rounded faces. A really nice small cabinet piece.
Legrandite w. Smithsonite etc.
stock #A-10-656
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.2 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $360


Gem clear bright yellow crystals of the Legrandite in several vugs on a Gossan matrix. A sprinkling of slender white Smithsonite crystals are also in some of the vugs as well, along with micro crystals that I can not identify. Many Legrandite crystals are perfect, undamaged and highly lustrous, but this is not a specimen for perfectionists since there are also some broken crystals in a few areas. For such a delicate mineral the condition overall is incredible, especially since some crystals protrude outside the protective vugs. Displays nicely but could be trimmed to make top notch thumbnail(s) if desired. As a rule these older Legrandites are very expensive even with some damage, this one is quite reasonable.
Quartz v. Amethyst -
stock #A 32-053
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
8 x 6.8 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1800


An incredibly formed Quartz- a "mushroom cap" style Amethyst on a contrasting matrix (this is not a scepter but more like an umbrella). In outstanding condition with great form and color, this is a very rare habit, I have only seen one other specimen. The Karur diggings have occasionally produced some exotic Quartz and this is a great example of "exotic". Below the fringe line of the cap a few tiny single crystals some sceptered protrude like little fingers. Complex parallel and stacked crystals in radial form join at the peak of the cap in a crude termination of sorts. Even the matrix is unusual, a mix of small crystals of Calcite, Quartz, Albite, Clinoclore etc that is much like some Alpine matrixes. A very special addition for any fine Quartz suite.
Grossular- transparent gem crystals
stock #17.AL-481
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.2 x 2.6 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1350


A killer miniature of absolutely transparent bright gem Grossular from the Jeffrey mine. When the mine was running, there were many different habits, colors and associations of Garnet found, usually in small zones that were never repeated. Over the years many habits have become especially desirable to collectors and this habit is one of them. This has rich red-orange color with good crystal separation, brilliant luster and impeccable transparency. Overall the arrangement of the Grossular is esthetic and the whole displays well from all sides. No damage, an esthetic example for the specie from the worlds greatest Grossular locale.
Fizelyite w. Semseyite etc Type Locality
stock #16.1-668
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
5.8 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


An unusually fine, rich and even attractive specimen of well crystallized Fizelyite. A rare Silver and Lead sulfosalt that is most often a "black ugly", this specimen is quite appealing. This has very bright luster and sharp form, dense crystal coverage and is associated with some fans of Semsyite on a Sulphide matrix. From the old Finds at Herja / Baia Mare, Romania which is they type locality for the specie. Hard to fine in good specimens this is far above average for quality and condition.
Stilbite on Prehnite
stock #15.1-495
Sadiola Mine
Kayes Region, Mali
7.3 x 3.5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


A slender fingerlike growth of green prehnite that is studded with pale yellow Stilbite crystals. In undamaged condition this displays well on all sides. This is from the discoveries in Mali that have produced a lot of good Epidote, but such very fine stilbite /Prehnite specimens are far more rare. This was selected from several hundred specimens as an especially esthetic piece.
Lazulite with Apatite and Wardite, Siderite, Quartz
stock #A-27-032
Rapid Creek, Dawson Mining District
Yukon Territory, Canada
9.3 x 4.9 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $425


A sizable and well composed plate fully covered with lustrous crystals. The Rapid Creek find of Lazulite is certainly the most gemmy and attractive crystals ever found of the specie, and this is a fine example. Sharp, glassy individual indigo prisms reach 1 CM. All are in a complex cluster sprinkled with white and colorless Apatite and golden gemmy Siderites. Lots of sparkle and pop, this is well better and larger than average, a good value from a modern classic.
Cobaltoan Calcite
stock #A-24-588
Aghbar Mine,Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Quarzazate Province
Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
6.6 x 4.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $800


A very bright color rounded knob that is also covered with rounded crystals of rich magenta-purple Co Calcite. The back and botton are the attachment points where this was broken from the bedrock but the display surface (front, top and sides) is in perfect condition and very impressive. The individual crystals have a bright wet-look luster and many are also two toned making a very eyecatching display. This locale has now been flooded and we do not expect to see the produced again. A future classic with the unique color that makes the best of these so desirable. Choice.
