Erythrite (fine crystals)
stock #12.1-003
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
5.3 x 3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $730


From the Wm. Pinch Collection, a superb small specimen. Bright lustrous, undamaged Erythrite crystals to 1.3 CM in size on contrasting matrix. The sharp dark purple-magenta colored prisms are gemmy and perfectly terminated. Really fine Bou Azzer Erythrites are the best ever found for the species, and far less expensive than lesser specimens from the old classic locations. A great value.
Brochantite (exceptional accicular crystals)
stock #10.1-260
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Cananea
Sonora, Mexico
6.6 x 4.6 x3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400


An extraordinary, delicate, electric green brochantite from what may be the best discovery ever of the species. In person the color is an intense emerald green deeper than can be rendered on most computer monitors. Perfect condition, strong esthetics and intense color make this piece stand out in any display. There have been only a few small pockets of Brochantite over the past few years at Milpillas which is far better known for incredible azurites. There have been very few fine specimens in these finds, and none recently. Without a doubt these will be regarded as some of the best of the specie ever seen, and are a fine affordable investment. This specimen can be shipped with special arrangements but it is far safer to deliver in person at a major show or by other arrangement.
Proustite (ruby- silver crystals )
stock #12.1-002
Imiter Mine, Imiter District, DjebelSaghro, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
6.7 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1350


Proustite is a "noble" silver mineral. It is rare, sometimes beautiful, expensive and highly desirable. From the classic locations in Germany and Chile good pieces often sell for more than double their weight in gold. Recent finds in Morocco produced a lot of low end, affordable specimens but only a few fine pieces. This specimen stands out as fine, with unusually large crystals, excellent ruby color and dense coverage. The largest crystal here is about a centimeter in size, but most are smaller. The matrix is a silver rich Galena/ Acanthite. A real attractive, fine piece well below market for a good example of this "holy grail" specie!
Sphalerite (Ruby Jack and Black Jack)
stock #0018-JM-1303
Pitcher, Ottawa County
Oklahoma, United States
8x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $150


A much better than average tri-state classic, ex John Marshall collection. Crystals to 3.6 CM on a thin matrix plate range in color from translucent ruby red to black. Pitcher Field produced huge numbers of Sphalerites 40+ years ago, it is now rare to see good ones. In fine condition, well composed and far more attractive than is typical.
Azurite with minor malachite
stock #7-MOR- 209
Touissit, Toussit District
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
7 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A cluster of highly lustrous sharp Azurites to 3.4 CM in size with scattered accents of green Malachite. From the 1980 vintage finds at Touissit, this is a very eyecatching and attractive example. The largest crystals are in excellent condition chipping and contacts do exist however that can not be seen from the main display angle. The luster is glasslike, far better than most Touissit pieces.
