Calcite (gem clear twin crystals)
stock #15.1-517
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
7.7 x 4.9 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $625


The kind of killer sharp and clear Calcite that made the Elmwood mine famous. Excellent condition, top glasslike luster and a light cognac color make this an especially choice piece. The main Calcite prism is 5.6 CM tall and a sparkling gem perfectly standing so the clarity is striking. Now that the mine is closed probably forever, the finer Calcites like this are fast appreciating and much harder to find on the market.
SOLD Apophyllite on Prehnite (US classic)
stock #SOLD A-35-166 XXX
Bull Run Quarry, Conklin
Virginia, United States
7.3 x 3.1 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $0


A colorful and especially well crystallized Apophyllite from the old Loudon County finds of Virginia. The sharpness, luster and clarity of these crystals is very fine for the locale. Undamaged, choice and esthetic this was collected prior to 1965 buy is likely much older.
Metastibnite, Klebelsbergite, Peretaite, Valentinite, Sulphur, etc
stock #17.1-284
Pereta Mine, Pereta, Scanbsano, Grosetto Province
Tuscany, Italy
7.5 x 5.5 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $160


An old Italian specimen that is loaded with several well crystallized rarities. Included older labels have misidentified the Metastibnite as Kermesite which it does indeed look like. Aside from that, this hosts well developed crystals of Klebelsbergite in several forms, Peretaite, Sulphur, Stibnite, Valentinite and possibly Ottensite and Minyulite. A real treat under the microscope, but the largest metastibnite crystal is 2.8 CM and needs no magnification.
Apatite -CaF (Fluorapatite)
stock #8.1-458
Cerro de Mercado, Victoria de Durango
Durango, Mexico
4.9 x 3.5 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $180


An older Apatite from Cerro de Mercado that presents a fine 3.5 CM gemmy crystal well exposed on matrix. This locale was a prolific source of these Apatites although most were much less clear than this and few on matrix. Rich yellow-green (asparagus) color. A choice piece in good condition that looks better in person.
Alamosite- rare xl rosette with Wulfenite and Mottramite
stock #16.1-440-CN975
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
7.8 x 4.8 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $320


A very rare specie from Mina Ojuela ex Charles Noll, Crawford and Seaman Museum. etc. A transparent white crystal spray sits nestled in a mossy green matrix of Mottramite and characteristic Ojuela blocky Wulfenite. Better known from Tsumeb where it is one of the rarities sought much sought after, however the type locale for this mineral is in Alamos, Mexico.
Grossular Var Hessonite w. Clinoclore etc.
stock #17.1-003
Monte Argentea, Arenzana, Genoa
Liguria, Italy
4.9 x 4.2 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $180


A very good matrix Garnet specimen with the classic style of Piedmont region Grossular. The crystals are sharp and translucent- a deep red when backlit but with normal lighting (as in these photos) typically look darker, almost black. In excellent condition a very good locality piece with bright luster.
Scheelite on Quartz
stock #A-30-064
Skardu District
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
6.4 x 4.4 x 3.5 (cabinet)
price: $720


A choice specimen with a single doubly terminated Scheelite nicely perched on contrasting clear Quartz crystals. The Scheelite is quite sharp, gemmy and richly colored. A few small Quartz at the edges are broken but the Scheelite and most Quartz are in perfect condition damage wise. This is from a find in Pakistan over 5 years ago that was briefly big mineral news. The find was small and the specimens have all disappeared. The Scheelte is very well presented- it sits well up on the matrix and has excellent contrast. Even better in person.
HOLD Fluorite w. Sphalerite and Galena ex Ross Lille Collection
stock #HOLD TMP 33667A
Denton Mine, Rosiclare Level, South End, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.6 x 5.4 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A killer for the size, this has perfect blue to purple zoned cubes esthetically perched on a mixed mineral matrix. According to the notes on the old label "Mined 1-1983 collected by Ross, matrix is colloquially called burned limestone a superb small cabinet, permanent collection". The sharpness and transparency of the crystals are similar to the top Yaoganxian style but are more rare and an American classic.
