Thomsonite -Ca fine spheroidal habit
stock #Alec 6-067
Shakur Quarry - Nasik District
Maharashtra, India
9.3 x 8 x 7.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1950
Spring 2017

A killer cabinet sized Thompsonite with perfect spheres of radial crystals stacked like scoops of ice cream. One of the best pieces (and my favorite) from a small find about 4 years ago. Looks great from all sides, the orange color is uncommon for Thompsonite as well. A great addition to any Indian mineral or Zeolite suite there is no damage at all. Choice!
Adamite
stock #9.1-376
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.7 x 3 x 1.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Spring 2017

Bright green color botryoidal Adamite from the great Ojuela mine. In fine condition and with vivid SW fluorescence, Adamites in this form are classics. An attractive older specimen of better quality than newer finds.
Amethyst
stock #ALEC-24-399
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
4 x 3 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Spring 2017

A sharp flower-like spray of Amethyst with Lepidocrocite needle inclusions. A choice miniature of rich color and luster from the unique finds at Karur in Southern India. Many of the individual crystals in the spray are sceptered, overall in good condition there are some broken crystals that keeps the price down yet are not distracting.
Andalusite (showing Pinite alterations)
stock #16.1-1274
Lusens Valley, Sellrain Valley. Northern Tyrol
Tyrol, Austria
8 x 7.4 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Spring 2017

A classic Tyrolian Andalusite, several sharp crystals are well exposed from enclosing Quartz. These old Austrian specimens are some of the best examples of this specie, which is usually not very impressive. This is in fine condition and has strong esthetics. With several old labels, this is a about as sharp and perfect as these crystals get.

One of the colorful and desirable minerals from Tsumeb, a nice specimen of bright red Chalcotrichite. The specimen vug has several tufts of red hair crystals and a mass of Calcite that is bright red colored by included Chalcotrichite. The cavity in this specimen is also lined with tiny Dolomite crystals and provides a good protection for the delicate crystals inside.

A single slender dark purple Amethyst (7.3 CM long)rises from a small cleft in a pale green Prehnite layer. A nice example of a typical habit Goboboseb specimen. Some zoning in the Quartz and in very good condition.
SOLD Spessartine on Smoky Quartz
stock #SOLD Alec-30-019
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
6.9 x 4.9 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Spring 2017

A particularly good, undamaged and colorful combo from the great finds of Tongbei. There have been loads of good specimens from Tongbei, but it can be hard to find one that is above average yet still affordable. This one is quite choice, the smokys are the less common transparent type and the garnet have rich color and bright luster. This area has almost completely shut down, and is now a modern classic locale.
Copper- Spinel twin- exceptional
stock #16.1-315
Itauz Mine, Zhilandy group
Karagandy Province, Kazakhstan
6.8 x 2.2 x 1.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
Spring 2017

We have seen and handled a lot of nice Kazakhstan Coppers, which can be very fine. This small cabinet specimen is my personal favorite so far. Textbook sharp linked chain of crystals in a perfect floater with a tree-like spray on top of the elongated spinel twins. Fantastic form, no damage at all and with a nice patina. A worthy and esthetic piece that is incredible in person.
