Vesuvianite (purple and green)
stock #17.AL-503
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.3 x 1.3 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $320
Winter 2016-17

Sharp, gem-clear bi color Vesuvianite crystal from the great Jeffrey mine. The range of color and habit of Jeffrey Vesuvianites is incredible, they considered the worlds best and quite prized. This is a well formed thumbnail with fine luster and an unusual color palette.
Anglesite
stock #16.1-004A
Touissit, Toussit District
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
4.5 x 3.7 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $680
Winter 2016-17

A classic, sharp and very transparent cluster of Anglesites with a tiny bit of Galena included. Pale yellow color and some zoning to colorless. The specimen is more transparent in person, it is difficult to capture. The main crystals are clean of damage but there are contacts and the small crystals on the edges have broken areas mostly where this was removed. Despite that, the over all look is very esthetic. The mine closed in the 1990s these are getting harder to find in this quality.
Andradite with Actinolite (Uralite)
stock #16.1-290
Stanley Mine, Graham Co.
Arizona, United States
3.4 x 2.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $110
Winter 2016-17

Unusually sharp, isolated and nicely composed, this is a lot more esthetic than most specimens from this well known locale. No damage, 3 dimensional specimen that can easily be trimmed to make a fine thumbnail.
Anglesite- gemmy
stock #15.1-1000 (SM415)
Touissit, Toussit District
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
3.7 x 2.1 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $500
Winter 2016-17

A very good classic habit Touissit Anglesite that is the natural color "lemon" hue. Very lustrous and sharp some small contacts and chips are there but still the quality and condition is far above average, and still relatively affordable. More transparent that is seen in the photos, these have now become quite rare and pricey in this quality. A good value. Ex Charles M. Noll collection.
Epidote well crystallized , with Actinolite
stock #16.1-284
Ore Hill mine, Warren, Grafton Co.
New Hampshire, United States
6.7 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Winter 2016-17

Lustrous oil-green prisms are well presented on the contrasting Actinolite. From a less well known Northeastern US locality (the Ore Hill mine, Warren, NH) Ex Bob Whitmore collection, the condition is excellent.Choice piece from an uncommon locale.
SOLD Cobaltoan Calcite
stock #SOLD 16.1-301
Agoudal Mine, Bou Azzer
Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
3.1 x 2.8 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
Winter 2016-17

Superb color and esthetic form in this small but eye-catching specimen. A supurb exampole of this very important find. The sharp. lustrous scalenohedral crystals radiate in all directions and are in fine condition. The color is even richer in person. This part of the Bou Azzer (Aghbar) is now flooded and shut down, it is said it can never re-open. Modern classics and in this quality rare, destined to appreciate.
Anglesite with Arsentsumebite, Duftite
stock #16.1-300
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.5 x 2.5 x 3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $425
Winter 2016-17

A single crystal of Anglesite in the pointed habit that has had some dissolution pockets near the base that are now filled with crystallized Arsentsumebite and Mottramite. Nice color contrast and a pearly luster on the Anglesite add character. Some minor bruises exist at 10 magnificatrion these look like typical bruising but at 40X magnification it seems some of this is partly recrystallized so these are more likely semi-healed old in-situ damage or contacts. A nice piece with a rather uncommon association.
Legrandite -single crystal
stock #16.1-279
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
2.1 x .5 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $880
Winter 2016-17

A sharp and clean crystal of Legrandite with intense lemon yellow color. In undamaged condition even at 20X magnification, this is from the first find at Ojuela that produced the best of the specie. Legrandites have become something of a trophy specie and often very expensive even for average specimens. An outstanding thumbnail.
