Elbaite -slightly curved crystal
stock #ALEC-19-100
Barra de Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.2 x 2.2 x 1.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

A darker bottle green Tourmaline with a subtle curve, color gradation and complete termination. 34.5 Grams in heft, there is an area of fibrous (cats eye) crystal in the curve zone where this crystal has had some natural breaks and rehealing. There is one repair at that point as well. A good, sizable, affordable crystal from a famed locale in good condition as seen.
Fluorite w. Boulangerite and Scheelite inclusions (rare)
stock #6.2-565
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
2.8 x 3.5 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

Single clear cube of Fluorite densely filled with metallic needle crystals of Boulangerite. There are also a few tiny gemmy Scheelites and Calcites scattered on the sides and edges. With a loupe it is impressive to see that there are several perfect clear golden Scheelites inside the Fluorite, with excellent clarity. These Scheelites also have Boulangerite growing inside of them, in an arrangement that I have not seen ever before. The specimen in vintage 2002, and a very special oddity.
Benitoite
stock #15.1-292
San Benito Peak, San Benito County
California, United States
8 x 4.9 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Post Tucson 2015

An array of zoned blue Benitoite crystals on contrasting white Natrolite. Classic material from this famed locale with crystals to 2 CM size. Some chipping on crystals as seen in the photos, a relatively affordable piece with a pleasing arrangement on the matrix.
Chalcocite
stock #ALEC-19-108
Flambeau Mine, Ladysmith, Rusk County
Wisconsin, United States
4.4 x 2.4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $480
Post Tucson 2015

A stacked cluster of sharp, well formed, slightly iridescent crystals from the famed Flambeau mine. In fine condition, the largest crystals are about 1.5 CM across and show the twinned psuedo hexagonal habit with pyramid terminations. Classic "soot" black with metallic edges in a very distinctive form.
Fluorite on Schorl
stock #ALEC-14-159
Erongo mountain, Usakos and Omaruru districts
Erongo region, Namibia
7.3 x 5.3 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
Post Tucson 2015

A wonderful sculpture of well formed crystals in fine condition. An excellent Erongo specimen that looks great on all sides. The Fluorites are zoned, complex translucent to transparent purple crystals. The Schorl is very lustrous and shows several types of terminations. A sprinkling of tiny Quartz crystals adds the final touch. A very good value for the quality.
Fluorite -zoned
stock #14.1-283
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
9 x 8.1 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250
Post Tucson 2015

Outstanding deep grape purple color in large gem-clear phantomed crystals. The contrasting greenish Muscovite matrix presents the Fluorites as very three dimensional. The crystals reach over 4.4 CM which is very large for this type, but they still have fine color. In exceptional, undamaged condition, this is a strong, eyecatching display piece. Nothing of this quality has come from Yaoganxian for a few years, these are now considered modern classics and make a fine esthetic addition to any good Fluorite or Chinese suite.
Barite on Stibnite
stock #12.1-239
Kadamzhay, Alai Range
Osh Oblast, Kyrgyztan
3.6 x 1.5 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

A remarkable, delicate miniature of clear Barite crystals showing distinct phantoms neatly perched on a slender Stibnite crystal. Amazing to see there is no damage at all even under 30X magnification. The Stibnite is terminated as well but it can be difficult to see as the Barites cover it from most views. An unusual specimen from a very unusual locality that we almost never see good specimens from. Choice!
Groutite on petrified wood
stock #8.AE-643
Holbrook, Navajo County
Arizona, United States
4.9 x 2.4 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $200
Post Tucson 2015

A rarity from the famed petrified forests of Arizona, an agatized wood limb fragment is covered on several sides with bright shining needle crystals of Groutite. In good condition and quite unusual.
