Fluorapatite (Apatite CF)
stock #8.1-458
Cerro de Mercado, Victoria de Durango
Durango, Mexico
5.2 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $145

The Cerrro de Mercado apatites are a Mexican classic, and now its quite hard to find nice ones. I try to purchase any decent piece I see since I think these are still undervalued and destined to be good investments. These were once plentiful, although undamaged crystals and good matrix piece were never very common. This example is in very good condition and an esthetic matrix piece as well. The main 3.4 CM crystal is quite sharp, gemmy and is well placed on the matrix. The small specimen has good presence and glass like luster. There are a few other tiny crystals scattered about although some are damaged they are not visible from the display side.
Tourmaline (Elbaite) in stacked prisms
stock #8.1-449
Golconda Pegmatite district, Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.9 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $425

A fine zoned green gem crystal with a remarkable and rare termination. This looks like a reversed scepter as the inner termination rises above the base prism. Very sharp and clean, there are some very tiny chips on a few edges but not distracting at all. Pretty much all gem with green color ranging from yellowish to a deeper bottle green color.
