SOLD Malachite ps after Azurite
stock #SOLD 15.1-361
Sacramento Mine, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mtns, Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
3.2 x 3 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $0
Post Tucson 2015

Well-formed, architectural classic Bisbee Pseudomorph of Malachite replacing Azurite. Very sharp prismatic replacement with a fine patina on the crystals. From a small collection made in 1921-22 by a Bisbee miner, that was recently re-discovered, wrapped in vintage newspapers and long underware. In perfect undamaged condition, few such small miniatures were saved. A great bit of history and a very attractive Arizona specimen
Spodumenne var. Kunzite
stock #ALEC-12-603
Darra-I Pech Pegmatite Field
Konar (Kunar) Province, Afganistan
11.1 x 7.3 x 9.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Post Tucson 2015

An older, sizable matrix specimen of light blueish Clevelandite hosts a 5.8 CM Kunzite crystal sharply terminated with good color and zoning. Associated are Quartz crystals to over 3 CM and a few scattered Elbaite and Schorl are noted too. The esthetics are quite nice while the Kunzite is nicely etched and in fine undamaged condition. Some chipping and bruises are seen on the quartz which keeps the price quite low but this still displays nicely.
Topaz w. Smoky and Citrine Quartz
stock #15.1-288
Sherlova Gora, Adun-Cholon Range, Nerchinsk, Chitinskaya Oblast
Transbaikalia, Russia
5.8 x 5.5 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Post Tucson 2015

Natural blue Topaz from the Urals is a prized European classic. This is a distinctive piece with the Topaz in excellent condition. Notable selective frosting on some faces, zoning and fine clarity. Along with the Quartz are what look like crude Colombites and Actinolite sprays. Very affordable for one of this quality.
Anglesite on Galena
stock #15.1-386
Touissit, Toussit District
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
6 x 3.7 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
Post Tucson 2015

Several super sharp, gemmy clear Anglesites are scattered on this Galena matrix. The largest is about 2CM long and stands above the matrix nicely. There is a repair on the specimen that is more or less invisible but it is there and keeps the price lower. Lots better in person and overall in fine condition, this is simply an esthetic, fine colorless Anglesite
Fluorite w. Sphalerite
stock #15.1-029
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
3.9 x 3.2 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $85
Post Tucson 2015

A simple attractive small specimen from the now classic Elmwood mine. An affordable Fluorite on Sphalerite with frosted faces, lilac hue, subtle zoning and nice contrast. Not perfect, so not expensive - there is some very small edge rubbing and a cleaved crystal at the rear. Still attractive and a good value there have not been many Fluorites recovered in the past 2 years.
Topaz & Quartz
stock #8.E-922
Nyet, Braidu Valley, Skardu District
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
5.5 x 4.7 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Post Tucson 2015

Sharp gem Topaz nicely perched on doubly terminated quartz. This has a delicate light natural pinkish to sherry color and sharp, glassy luster that presents well from any angle. No damage (which is quite rare as well) from finds more than a decade ago. Esthetic and a very good value.
stock #10.1-177
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4 x 3.6 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $975
Post Tucson 2015

A fine, sweet pinwheel style Adamite with brilliant color and luster. Minimal matrix this is mostly just a pure, bright Adamite specimen. In fine condition there is no damage aside from the outer edge contacts seen in the photos. The tiny crystals that compose the wheels are perfectly terminated and pristine. A very pretty example that is hard to find now.
stock #14.1-064
Wheatley Mines, Pheonixville
Pennsylvania, United States
5.5 x 3.3 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Post Tucson 2015

Wheatley Pyromorphite with dark green hoppered crystals and very bright luster. This piece is ex Warren Johansson's collection, Warren sadly passed away this year at the age of 93. This piece is classic in habit and overall look, it is crystallized on all sides with the best face shown here. Minimal damage this is in far better condition than 99% of these and is clearly not "dump collected" but dates from the original mining of the mid 19th century.
