Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
6.3 x 3 x 2.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
new june 17

A choice and attractive Tsumeb specimen. A flower-like cluster of sharp Malachite pseudo after Azurite crystals is nicely perched on mounds of sharp well crystallized green Duftite. These are sizable (for the specie) and they are perched on what looks to be Mimetite and some Cerussite with a few gem clear Calcite crystals, a tuft of Rosasite and a few other micros of related species. This is the kind of elegant and complex mixing of diverse species and crazy chemistry that makes Tsumeb minerals so incredible. In fine condition, displays well and a real treat under the microscope.

stock #16.1-585
Walworth Quarry - Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.9 x 2.7 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $190
new june 17

A cute small miniature featuring glass clear cubes that are almost colorless but have a tiny hint of blue in some light. The main Fluorite is 1.3 CM across and there is no damage on the specimen. The matrix can be seen perfectly through the crystals. Walworth Fluorites are quite rare on the market and much respected by regional collectors and Fluorite lovers worldwide. From an older collection this is a very good value.

Thumbnail specimen of gemmy Eosphorite crystals in a radiating spray on Quartz matrix. As is sometimes the case there are micro crystals of Zanazzite associated. The condition is excellent and by naked eye perfect. At 20X magnification one small crystal can be found that has some termination damage. Remarkable for this delicate mineral in such long, slender crystals. great value.
Apophyllite -partly included by Celedonite
stock #A-27-099
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
7.9 x 5 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $250
new june 17

A sculptural arrangement of elongated crystals of Apophyllite with green inclusions and some zoning due to Celedonite inclusions. In fine condition and with great form this stands out among the many average pieces from the famed Deccan traps of India. As fine minerals from many locales have become so incredibly expensive, it is still possible to build a suite of top notch Indian minerals for a relatively modest investment.
Chalcopyrite on Sphalerite w. Pyrite-
stock #A19-098
Casapalca Mine, Casapalca, Huarochiri Province
Lima Department, Peru
9.8 x 7.2 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
new june 17

An outstanding cabinet display piece of fine, large (to 4.5 CM) crystals of iridescent Chalcopyrite on contrasting Sphalerite. Although Chalcopyrite is a common mineral, great crystals especially large ones are surprisingly rare. The patina and metallic color play make this especially attractive. An older Casapalca specimen in fine condition overall, with a few small chips mostly on outer edges. As Chalcopyrite is very brittle it is rare to have such large crystals in this fine condition.
Pyromorphite
stock #17.1-279 (A7)
Bad Ems
Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
2.8 x 2.6 x 2.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90
new june 17

Choice, classic thumbnail of flesh colored Pyromorphites showing fine Barrel shaped crystal form and hoppered terminations. A small bit of adhering Barite is noted but mostly this is all Pyro. A nice arrangement very three dimensional with good luster. Magnification shows the main crystals are undamaged but areas at the edges have some chipping, not visible by naked eye. A good, affordable German specimen.

new june 17

An esthetic cluster of well formed leaf-like pink Serandite with contrasting white Analcime crystals. A classic association from Mt St Hillaire, the only locale where sizable, fine crystals were found. Minor black Aegirine is also noted. A lot of visual impact for a small specimen. In excellent condition.
