Native Silver
stock #7.AE-205
Elura Mine, Cobar, Robinson Co.
New South Wales, Australia
4 x 2.2 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $490
Post Tucson 2015

One of the very best most detailed Elura Silvers I have ever seen. The Elura mine is the source of a distinctive habit of crystallized Silver, this being a superb example. Herringbone crystals and elongated spinel twins, some of which are flattened are all joined in a tree like sculpture. Excellent patina and in perfect condition, no damage can be found even at 30X magnification. These have become scarce in recent years and this quality was never common.
Calcite
stock #17.1-AX-7-028-1284
Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
5.3 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Post Tucson 2015

Classic old English Calcite from the Egremont mines, Ex Larry White collection. The habit and clarity are typical of this region and these Calcite can be very expensive when they turn up at shows. Fine condition and eye clean (no damage noted by naked eye)the crystals have a slightly milky look but are still fully transparent.
Mimetite -New find at classic locale
stock #17.1-AX-29-018
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.8 x 4.2 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

From another small but exciting new find at the great Mina Ojuela, a well crystallized bright Mimetite. The orange red color is vibrant and the tiny crystals sparkle thoughout. No damage can be seen by naked eye, but a little is seen at 20 X magnification. The individual crystals are all transparent and gemmy. A nice addition to any Ojuela suite.
Cerussite- new find, Ojuela
stock #ALEC-29-108
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
7.3 x 4.8 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Post Tucson 2015

A delicate and complex Cerussite fro m the recent find at Mina Ojuela. These are glassy crystals associated with Pyrite that have inclusions that make part of the crystals opaque. There is some green to blue green inclusions and coatings as well so the overall look is dark. There are many crystal habits on this piece, some twinned, sixlings and untwinned prisms. Some damage exists but much less than on nearly all pieces in the find. The longest crystal is 3.1 CM, before this find Cerussite was very rare at Ojuela.
Phenakite on Adularia
stock #ALEC-26-011
Mt. Antero, Chaffee Co.
Colorado, United States
3.4 x 2.5 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $100
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, sizable Phenakite from Colorado. The old labels say Phenakite on Adularia, they are somewhat transparent and glassy. The main crystal is big for the locale at 1.1 CM, it has a fine glassy luster and is in good condition With magnification it seems to show some twinning and has unusualy curved faces formed from several offset faces. A nice affordable Mt. Antero specimen.
Wulfenite
stock #ALEC-29-036
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.9 x 3.5 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

A delicate small Tsumeb Wulfenite that has fine transparency. Very nice butterscotch color, there are some unidentified tiny white platey crystals as well on the matrix. The specimen has some tiny edge chipping damage on one of the crystals so the price reflects this. This could be trimmed to a thumbnail but I like it just as it is. By naked eye this displays just like an undamaged piece.
Rose Quartz
stock #ALEC-10-629
Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.8 x 3.2 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Rose Quartz crystals in a neat bundle from the great finds in Brazil circa 1970. This is mostly just pure crystallized rose Quartz with some inclusions. Fine transparency and minimal damage (micro chips and contacts)that is not easy to see by naked eye. The price reflects the minor imperfections, if you are not a strict perfectionist this is a very good value for the rarest type of crystallized quartz. The crystals reach 2 CM.
Amethyst Scepter
stock #ALEC-12-008
Simeone Quarry, Wrentham
Massachusetts, United States
4 x 3.2 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $220
pre Tucson 2015 update

A small but well defined Massachusetts Amethyst in scepters and parallel growths. Sharp with good clarity and subdued zoned color, this is for its size a very fine specimen from this locale. A fair sized contact on the edge back is not seen when mounted for display. All of the three top tips are perfectly undamaged even at 30X magnification. Very few were found in this condition.
