Quartz V. Amethyst Parallel growth scepters
stock #6.2-932
Ashaway Village, Hopkinton, Washington County
Rhode Island, United States
10.2 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


A very good example from this now classic find in Rhode Island. Light purple cap to the piece has very minor chipping but is far better than most which have easilly noticed damage. The milky shaft provides great contrast and the overall impression is excellent. These scepters are quite rare on the market and this is a good one.
Tourmaline (elbaite) Bi-colored
stock #8 RK-091
Cruzeiro Mine, Sao Jose de Safira
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $300


A translucent bi color crystal with full undamaged termination and good color. A nice example of a Cruziero from sometime in the mid 80's. Attractive.
Quartz, Flattened, doubly terminated
stock #8 DK-089
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
12.8 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


For even the most jaded quartz collector! This is a very different and attractive quartz that is mostly clear but with some internal milky clouds. Very flat and tabular, average is only 1.3 Cm thick, and resembling a fadden but without any "string" visible. To make it a little more exotic, there is a very slight twist to the crystal so it technically a gwendel but just barely! I have not seen any other quite like this and gwendels that are not from alpine clefts are very rare indeed! Ther are two very tiny hard to find chips on the backside of this otherwise it is absolutely pristine,
Rhodochrosite and Quartz
stock #8.1-039
Wudong mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh
Guangxi, China
6.5 x 4 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $650


A very pretty and balanced arrange ment of compound Rhodochrosite rhombs sitting on a matrix of drusy quartzon a shard of Dolomitic country rock. Top color for a Chinese rhodo and quite fine from anyplace! The largest rhomb is 2 CM and all are sharp and translucent. This glows with any backlighting but looks fine without .
Native Silver (psudo after Dycrasite)
stock #8.1-008
Pribam-Haje
Central Bohemia Region, Czech Republic
7.5 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $475


A fine and sizable classic silver psudo in outstanding condition. Very esthetic, a dense cluster of wires and branches cover the top side of the matrix which has been artfully etched from the enclosing calcite. Presents perfectly, this is an older piece from one of the greatest silver localities in Europe.
Native Silver wires on Acanthite, Calcite etc.
stock #6.2-770
Huangtongxiang Mine, Luijiang
Anhui, China
8.2 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $425


Excellent complex array of wires stand up over 3 CM from the matrix in esthetic branches. The matrix is a very rich, heavy ore with many small vugs filled with micro calcites, silvers and what looks like Chlorargyrite. A very fine Silver from a less well known Chinese locale that has not produced much for the past few years. Quite different from the Shanxi Province Silvers that are better known.
Quartz- Black Stemmed Scepter
stock #8.1-021
Treasure Mt. Herkimer County
New York, United States
3.5 x 1.7 CM (small miniature)
price: $90


The most desirable style of Herkimer "diamonds" is the the Black Stem scepter. These only occur in a single small zone and are not currently being found. This is a good, clean and undamaged example collected in the early 90's. Very distinct phantoming and lots of interesting inclusions.
Sphalerite on quartz with calcite
stock #6.2-605
Shuikoushan Lead Zinc Mine, Changning, Hengyang Pref.
Hunan, China
8.1 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


A very fine, large (3.9 CM) sharp and glassy Sphalerite sits on the matrix of Dolomite coated with quartz and minor calcite. When backlit the Sphalerite glows Orange Red. The crystal is complete with no damage. Very esthetic.
