Amethyst phantom with Apophyllite crystals
stock #17.1-086
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo region, Namibia
6 x 1.9 x 1.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A fine and unusual Brandburg type amethyst crystal in perfect condition, with the very rare addition of Apophyllite crystals on some faces. Classic and esthetic, this is the best example I have seen of this uncommon association. The Apophyllite is gem clear and sharp, most are doubly terminated and all are very lustrous. In the Quartz, movable internal bubbles (enhydro) are a nice bonus. The Goboboseb region has produced lots of Amethysts but the quality, esthetics, condition and the Apophyllites make this one stand out from the crowd. Choice.
Fluorite - zoned, classic yellow- purple
stock #A-29=058
Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.1 x 4.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150


An American classic, sharp Fluorite with excellent color and form from the Minerva #1. Complex cubic stepping and hoppers on several faces and a few Chalcopyrite crystals add a nice accent. The Fluorite cubes are very sharp, in fine condition, colorful and translucent to transparent. Looks great from several angles and with backlighting is really dramatic. The photos here are NOT backlit so it looks as it will in a typical display without special lighting. Sadly such quality Illinois Fluorites are fast becoming rare and expensive. No damage except on the underside where it was attached, this is choice and clean on all display faces.
Beryl- Highly etched gem crystal
stock #17.1-296
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo region, Namibia
8.8 x 2.6 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1500


A very odd, beautiful and choice gem Beryl that reminds of the famed Ukrainian Heliodore, yet this is an Erongo specimen. In fine condition, all sides of this crystal are stepped and etched with complex, faceted faces. Close to 100 percent facetable gem grade transparency and 44 grams of green to yellowish color, like a midpoint between Aquamarine and Heliodore. We recently (2017) obtained this in Namibia where it was the best and largest of a single pocket. So far there seems to be no more. Doubly terminated (crudely) and in our experience, unique.
SOLD Quartz on blue Opal with Chrysocolla
stock #SOLD 17.1-300
Khorixas District prospect
Kunene Region, Namibia
6.7 x 3.7 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


A sparkling and intensely bright colored specimen from the one time blue Opal finds at Khorixas, Namibia. Layers of deep blue Opal and Chrysocolla are the base on which a bright quartz druse formed. Similar to the well known (and now highly valued) gem silica drusy of Chile and Arizona, but with a unique look and habit. An eye catching deep blue specimen in fine condition. This was a small deposit and nothing new has been found in a few years. Almost impossible to find any on the market now.
Fluorite -Bicolored scepter
stock #16.1-642
Erongo mountain, Usakos and Omaruru districts
Erongo region, Namibia
4 x 3.1 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $450


The Erongos sometimes produce impressive and very unusual Fluorites often in just a small single pocket find. A few years ago a find of loose green scepters, mostly very etched thumbnails made news. This specimen is similar but from a more recent small find. Less etched, larger, bicolored and on matrix, this has great esthetics. Formed of two crystals grown close together the tips are perfectly terminated in deep purple color but the stalks and base are bright green. Few were found, this example is especially choice.
Smithsonite (Pink-Cobaltoan) with Cerussite
stock #16.1-614
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, United States
5.3 x 4.6 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $520


Bright purplish-pink color dominates this small cabinet specimen with several spherical groups of Smithsonite crystals on a Sulphide matrix. In contrast there are several Cerussites some twinned and in fine condition as well. Most Tsumeb Cobaltoan Smithsonite is a rather pale pink color this is really deep strong color, electric and impressive.
Wulfenite (gem clear crystals) with Dolomite, Leiteite
stock #16.1-460-CN-5369
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
7.3 x 4.9 c 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $880


A super fine gemmy group of Wulfenite crystals with several habits on a complex, altered matrix. The specimen has many micro crystals that are not identified and a small zone of the rare Leiteite. Highly lustrous and quite esthetic with a deep cognac color. In excellent condition, ex Charles Noll collection.
Pyromorphite- Arsenian type
stock #17.1-546
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
7.2 x 3.2 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $880


An excellent Pyromorphite in fine condition from the now classic Bunker Hill mine. Excellent color with both bright yellow and orange zones. Two generations of crystals are present most with wet look luster. Sharp hexagonal barrel type crystals to nearly 2 CM are the first generation, some are hoppered but most have flat terminations. The last generation of sparkling micro crystals on top adds a nice touch. Better in person this can be displayed from almost any angle.
