Barite (gem clear w. Phantoms)
stock #Alec-213-230
Sulcis
Sardinia, Italy
5.5 x 3.5 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $245


An older, well formed amber colored Barite from the Sulcis area of Caligari in Sardinia. Ex. Mineral Gallery (K. Ward) This shows several good phantoms with backlighting, and has a second generation overgrowth in some areas. Over all in fairly good condition there is contacting on one side and at the rear, small edge chipping is present but not easily seen from the logical display angle. A nice, good color piece from a classic local with the main crystal reaching 4.8 CM.
Cassiterite
stock #4.2-269
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8 x 7.4 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A well placed cluster of lustrous Cassiterite perched on the classic Muscovite matrix of Mt. Xuebaoding. Very nice presentation and contrast, the Cassiterite is just over 4 CM across and in very good condition. By naked eye there is no damage but good magnification shows slight edge chips that are not at all distracting on display.
Willemite & Calcite
stock #9.1-365
Franklin/ Sterling Hill
New Jersey, United States
9.5 x 6 x3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A classic Franklin piece, sharp well developed flesh to reddish color Willemite crystals are well exposed on a calcite matrix. Vivid green and red fluorescence and a very attractive daylight specimen too. Unlike many Willemites this was NOT etched out by acid melting of the calcite so it has a more natural look. The largest crystal has been re-attached to the matrix as is common with this type of specimen. The largest crystal is sharp and complete all around, one crystal in the matrix is cleaved as seen, all others are quite perfect.
Tourmaline (Elbaite/Liddicoatite) "mushroom form"
stock #0810-JM-4200
Luc Yen
Yen Bai Province, Vietnam
4.9 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $580


An early piece of well formed multi-color tourmaline from the now famous deposits at Luc Yen, Vietnam. Very sharp and with glassy luster, this is in superb condition with no visible damage to the crystal. Better in person and a little more gemmy than the photos show. This is quite likely a mix of Elbaite and Liddicoatite but has not been analyzed to determine this. Ex John Marshall collection, this is well above the quality of the vast majority of these Tourmalines, and a nice addition to any suite.
Cerussite
stock #13.1-122
Flux Mine, Patagonia
Arizona, United States
3.6 x 3.1 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $300


A very esthetic, 3 dimensional specimen with well formed delicate crystals from the great finds of the 1980's at the Flux Mine. These are all quite delicate and usually show considerable damage, but this is an unusually pristine example. The sprays of Cerussite contrast with the black matrix very well. This can be packed and shipped but we recommend insurance since it is so delicate. Now an American classic this is a far above average toenail specimen.
Chabazite (very rare color, gemmy yellow crystals)
stock # stock #AC-053
Wasson's Bluff
Nova Scotia, Canada
7.8 x 5 cm (cabinet)
price: $250


Bright, lustrous, gemmy lemon yellow Chabazite crystals are scattered in an open vug segment. Very unusual color and clarity, this specimen was collected sometime before 1940. The typical color for Chabazite from Nova Scotia is salmon to orange red and is opaque to slightly translucent. These are glass clear, gemmy and up to .8 cm. Esthetic and an important Canadian specimen.
Fluorite on Quartz
stock #7-13-592
De'an Mine
Jiangxi, China
11.4 x 10 cm (cabinet)
price: $390


Two deep purple cubo-octahedrons etched from the quartz matrix are well placed and displayed with great form and contrast. In fine condition with no damage, however the fluorites do show some stress cracks as do almost all of these. Some color changes can be noted in this fluorite in different light sources.
Dravite (unusual gem clear crystal)
stock #14.1-049
Namalulu, Simanjiro District
Manyara Region, Tanzania
3.8 x 1.1 x .8 CM (miniature)
price: $340


From recent finds of Dravite in Tanzania, this is a very sharp, lustrous and surprisingly gemmy single crystal. Deep red brown color in excellent condition this glows with a backlight, in normal lighting it looks darker, more like the photos shown here.
