Fluorite- Cathage Corner habit
stock #15.1-031
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.6 x 4.2 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $340
Spring 2017

A perfect complete Carthage Corner habit Fluorite crystal showing the pyramidal etched growth that is so desirable from the Elmwood mine. A pale purple hue is seen from some angles but the interior is flawlessly clear and colorless. Naturally etched from the corner section of a large perfect cube this rare habit is best at the Elmwood in Carthage, Tennessee.
Rosasite with Calcite and Malachite
stock #Alec 11-254
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.5 x 3.9 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Spring 2017

A really colorful dark green Rosasite with Malachite on a matrix of clear rhombs of Calcite. The specimen is covered with small spheres and botrytoids of velvety Rosasite intermixed with Malachite. The condition is choice and the contrast with the white Calcite crystals sets everything off well. A little different esthetics than the usual Rosasite.
Azurite with Malachite -Electric Blue
stock #16.1-646
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
5.2 x 4.3 x 3.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $650
Spring 2017

The type of bright electric blue Azurite that was major news in the mineral world. The association of crystallized Malachite adds an strong contrast to the lustrous Azurite crystals. I good condition there is chippining at outer sides but the center is clean and undamaged. Better in person, when these were first found a specimen of this quality would be priced in the thousands. This was a huge find and so the prices have become much more affordable for a choice Azurite. As of 2014 the Azurite zone is finished and no more is expected.
Hyalite (opal) -gem clear
stock #A7-071-526
Tarcal, Eperjes- Tokaj Mountains
Borosod-Abauj-Zemplen Co., Hungary
3.5 x 2.9 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $110
Spring 2017

A glass clear bubbly mass of Hyalite opal perched on matrix. Vivid fluorescence, undamaged and esthetic. It is possible to easily see bubbles inside the Hyalite. Even prettier in person.
Mimetite var. Campylite on Quartz
stock #16.1-1272
Dry Gill Mine, Caldbeck Fells
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
6.9 x 6.2 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $80
Spring 2017

An attractive, clean and undamaged cluster of curved crystals of Mimetite resting on Milky Quartz crystals. This cluster has the classic color and habit of Campylite which while not a recognized specie is still very distinctive. Good contrast and presentation.
Tetrahedrite - Highly lustrous crystals
stock #Alec-19-308
Casapalca Mine, Casapalca, Huarochiri Province
Lima Department, Peru
6.8 x 6.1 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Spring 2017

Metallic and bright lustrous these very sharp crystals are sprinkled with a few small quartz and pyrite crystals. Individual tetrahedrons up to 2.7 CM are jumbled in a complex arrangement on this matrix plate. In fine condition overall for this delicate mineral, only one crystal has an edge bruise, all others are perfect, complete and pristine. Really hard to find this level of quality at any price.
Epistilbite- large, well crystallized with Mordenite
stock #16.1-1273
Teigarhorn, Berufjordur, Suour Mulasysia
Eastern Region, Iceland
10.6 x 7 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Spring 2017

An old classic Icelandic specimen of the relatively rare Zeolite Epistilbite. This large specimen contains a vug of well protected Epistilbites surrounded by fibrous Mordenite crystals. In undamaged condition with sharp transparent crystals most of which are colorless. An old label is glued to the specimen and seems to date to the 1920 vintage but could be even older. Much better quality, display impact and crystal size than the more recent specimens from Fossarfel, this is an older Teigerhorn piece. Choice.

A sweet Arizona Fluorite with light satin frosted faces on octahedral crystals. In excellent undamaged condition, the pale mint green Fluorite contrasts well with the white Quartz. A hard to find quality of esthetics for this locality.
