Golden Barite w-Calcite
stock #6.2-746
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi, China
7.8 x 5.4 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sweet gemmy golden Barite with tabular Calcites that are decorated in turn with Pyrite. The Barites have dark phantoms and the overall contrast is excellent. This is from a small find at Nandan in 2002, which were mostly very damaged. This has minimal damage, none of which is naked eye-visible from logical display angles. Much nicer in person too.
stock #ALEC-12-213
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
3.8 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

There have been many Cassiterites recovered from Xuebaoding, but the prismatic type with the pyrimidal termination is by far the rarest form. This is a good lustrous single crystal that shows the habit well. There are contacts and a few tiny chips so the price reflects this yet it is still a very nice example.
Variscite with Wardite crystals etc.
stock #13.1-362
Little Green Monster Mine, Clay Canyon, Fairfield
Utah, United States
5.8 x 4 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $120
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unpolished Variscite etc. nodule showing many of the associated species (Crandellite etc) and having a fine vug of blue green Wardite in distinct crystals. Often Wardite from the Fairfield area is white or grey, this is a much more attractive color and the crystals are very sharp, clear and much better than typical.
stock #ALEC-29-059
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
6.4 x 6 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
pre Tucson 2015 update

Great color and luster, this is a Datolite from Mexico that looks much more like a good Russian specimen. From a small find in late 2013, this has the form, clarity and quality of the top few percent. Some edge chipping/ contacts is inevitable but overall in very good condition.
Zircon (Hydrous)- var Malacon
stock #13.1.352
Ambatofotsy Pegmatite, Soavinandriana, Itasy Region
Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
3.7 x 3.6 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $95
pre Tucson 2015 update

A rare altered, hydrous variety of Zircon called Malacon, here in distinct crystals. The curved faces and the pearly luster are distinctive from the find a few years ago in Madagascar. No damage and viewable from all sides, a nice example.
Adamite (purple/manganoan) with Lotharmeyerite
stock #13.1-385
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.2 x 3.1 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $340
pre Tucson 2015 update

A classic assemblage of Adamites with some distinct purple crystals and tiny Lothameyerite crystals scattered as well. The Geothite matrix has several vugs but the largest vug is the most logical for display with a 2.5 CM span of Adamite. The crystals are sharp, glassy and have classic form, in quite good condition, the only damage is at the edges and is mostly not naked eye visible. purple is the rarest color for Adamite and the most desired, usually these are quite expensive.
Rhodonite- Single crystal
stock #Alec-29-033
Conselheiro Lafaiete
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.3 x 2.6 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $220
pre Tucson 2015 update

A translucent bright red single crystal of Rhodonite that is complete and distinctive. There are a few tiny unidentified yellow crystals on one face, otherwise this is all Rhodonite. This area had a major discovery a few years ago that produced some of the worlds best Rhodonites that sold for huge sums. This specimen is not that good or anything close to that expensive. An extremely flattened Rhomb, there is some minor edge chipping is seen in the photos but still displays well.
Fluorite, Spinel twin
stock #8.1-068
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.3 x 2.2 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very rare Chinese example of a light pinkish spinel- twinned Fluorite perched on a muscovite matrix along with a few small Aquamarine Beryls. From the great locale of Xuebaoding, which has been the source of several habits of cubic Fluorite, but spinel twins and in this color are almost unheard of. Etched faces on all sides there is no damage seen even at 20 magnification. An important specimen for this major locale.
