Large, pure and colorful dense botryoidal masses of Rosasite on a blocky gossan matrix. Mina Ojuela Rosasite are probably the best found in the past 70 years, this is a quite nice specimen this is an excellent deep blue green color and typical mossy luster.
Brazilianite (on albite)

A clean, bright, sharp and colorful specimen of clustered gemmy Brazilianites on a tiny shard of Albite matrix. The crystals reach 3.5 CM and are in fine condition. From 2009 finds in Linopolis, this is far above average and has a great esthetic, but at an affordable price.
Manganodolomite with Fluorite, Pyrite and Quartz
stock #5.1-112-3
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan, China
12.2 x 8.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $190


A big, colorful and unusual piece from Shangbao. I purchased a small lot of these at the mine in China in 2003, and I now wish I had bought many more, I have not seen any others since. Nice sharp pink rhombs reach 2.4 CM and are scattered on a bright sparkling Fluorite matrix composed of modified cubes (typical form at Shangbao). These are gemmy in some areas, lightly frosted in others and quite attractive everywhere. Minor quartz and pyrite are present too. Displays well from several angles, we took this back in trade and are able to offer it at the old 2003 price!
Ebaite (Rubellite) on Quartz
stock #AC-362
Pala, San Diego Co.
California, United States
6.1 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $2400


A FINE classic American Tourmaline specimen, Ex Frank Hess collection. Undamaged, unrepaired, doubly terminated Elbaite (3.5 CM) is penetrating the termination of a compound quartz crystal. A small green zone is visible at one termination but mostly this is just fine raspberry hue. This specimen dates from pre 1950 Pala area finds, it was sold by Schortmann's minerals but no mine attribution is given, it may have been from any of several small prospects or one of the more famous mines. Classic form and far better than average quality and esthetics for a fine San Diego pegmatite specimen!
