Azurite with minor Malachite
stock #4.2-539-.2
Tongshan Copper-Iron Mine, Guichi City
Anhui, China
7.4 x 6.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $140


A big, bright blue sparkling specimen with Azurite crystals densely packed on the display faces. The copper deposits in this area of Anhui province have been mined for thousands of years, probably the longest continuous operation on earth. Small scale mining lets specimens escape the huge crushers that are used elsewhere. Very attractive and affordable.
Smithsonite (Deep green, ex John Marshall Collection)
stock #0287-JM-455
Kelly Mine, Magdelena district
New Mexico, United States
9 x 6.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $875


Super deep rich color, no damage and large size from mining in the late 1950's. These are already cherished classics for their color and luster. Much more green than the usual blue color, displays well and a very good value
SOLD Chalcopyrite (fine Euhedral crystals)
stock #SOLD 10.1-070
Commodore Mine, Creede, Mineral County
Colorado, United States
5.5 x 4.1 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $0


An extraordinary, sharp and brilliant Chalcopyrite from the classic Creede district. Chalcopyrite is a delicate, brittle mineral that rarely survives without damage, it is quite rare to find really good crystal specimens. This is a very fine example with rich patina and form, individual crystals reach 2.2 CM and the overall condition is outstanding, no eye visible damage! Fine piece for the locality and for the specie.
Cinnabar on Dolomite
stock #7 CNA 522
Chatian Mine, Fenghuang
Hunan, China
6.5 x 5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $220


A very fine gemmy 1.3 cm main crystal of Cinnabar sits well in an exposed vug of crystallized Dolomite. It is rare to find this form, tabular and untwinned in any but micro crystals. The color is the richest possible red and is in good condition. Close examination shows a hairline crack in the prism but it seems solid and does not detract at all. This is far above the usual quality!
Galena (mirror bright modified cubes)
stock #10.1-068
Gyudyurska Mine, Zlatograd
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
8.5 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $140


Impossibly bright and lustrous, these modified cubes make a very eyecatching specimen. The fantastic Bulgarian Galenas are already noted as some of the best ever found. There are many forms and associations, but the most impressive are those with an intense metallic luster that is almost impossible to photograph. Damage free, this is a great value.
Eosphorite on Quartz (doubly terminated)
stock #0128-JM-2142
Taquaral, Itinga
Minas Gerais, Brazil
10.1 x 3.8 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $185


A 10 CM, doubly terminated gemmy quartz crystal showing parallel growth is host to a rich display of Eosphorite crystals. No damage, the Eosphorite blades are in radiating clusters that reach up to 1.7 cm. Ex John Marshall collection, he obtained this piece in the 1970's. Good Eosphorites are uncommon, and this is an exceptionally fine one.
Beryl (Zoned-milky white to Aquamarine)
stock #0126-JM-383
Palmital Mine, Minas Novas, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.9 x 3.6 CM (miniature)
price: $175


An unusual Beryl crystal, from a find several years ago (1960's) that produced these odd specimens. Bright glassy luster, a deep translucent bluish white zone at the base changes to a clear blue green near the termination. There is micro chipping on some edges, as all pieces had from this find, despite this the specimen is the most pristine I have seen of this style. A very different Beryl that is certainly rare!
Chrysocolla (psudo after Atacamite)
stock #0129-JM-3875
La Farola Mine, Cerro Pintado
Copiapo Province, Atacama Region, Chile
9.4 x 8.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $100


Brilliant rich blue color, densely deposited crusts on matrix. The Chrysocolla is in the form of rounded tube like structures and plates. From J. Hyrsl minerals (Czech Republic) who ascribes the form to a pseudomorph of Atacamite. Very attractive deep color.
