Rutile ( single crystal with overgrowths))
stock #12.1-014
Pedra Preta Pit, Serra das Eguas, Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $125


A deep red prism crystal that is complete, sharp, lustrous and translucent. From a find about 4 years ago, there were not many found. Chipping on edges seen with 10x magnification, but still displays well. The form is unusual too with a central prism that has a series of parallel overgrowths on the sides that are orienting themselves in classic twin law.
Hematite (large twinned crystals)
stock #10.1-307
Ouro Preto
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.3 x 4.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $300


A big, bright metallic black complex twin of crystallized Hematite. Displays well from several angles, there is some inevitable chipping and contacts, but these are not distracting. The specimen is very complex and presents many forms with some mirror bright faces and others with very fine striations. These Brazilian Hematites rank well alongside the world's best and are relatively very affordable.
Vanadinite (exceptional electric red)
stock #12.1-016
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
7.9 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $2450


Among the many average to pretty good Moroccan Vanadinites it is special to find a really superb specimen. Top pieces also command top prices. This one is exceptional, it stands out for esthetics, color, perfect condition and visual impact. It is also far less expensive than usual for this quality. In person, this really sings and blows away other pieces. If you have wanted a superb Vanadinite but were put off by stratospheric prices, take a hard look at this one!
Fluorite (unusual gem clear crystal plate)
stock #8.1-248
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan, China
10.4 x 9.9 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


A very weird Fluorite! I obtained this in 2009 at the Shangbao Mine and sold it immediately. It is now back in trade. Simply, this plate is composed of many oriented parallel crystals that are as clear as glass, with a very pale pink to violet hue. The plate is cleaved on the back, but the display face is a remarkable mix of crystal faces and complex etching. I have never seen any other example of this odd form. A fine addition to any Fluorite collection or just an unusual specimen for display.
Uvite (green gem crystals with magnesite and Goyazite)
stock #12.1-004
Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
4.2 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $220


A very pretty small miniature with sharp glassy crystals. Micros of Goyazite as well as gemmy rhombs of Magnesite complete the specimen. In fine condition, this find at Brumado has produced some fantastic examples of this tourmaline family member. Good value.
Ferberite on Quartz
stock #12.1-005
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
5 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $120


A very cute, esthetic, sharp and undamaged Ferberite on quartz. From the display side the ferberite crystals are growing out of the termination of a quartz prism. An older piece originally sold by the Rocksmiths in the first wave of Chinese discoveries. Fine luster and architecture that is also affordable, and show why Yaoganxian has become a world class supplier of good sulfide minerals.
Beryl var. Aquamarine (tabular form) on Muscovite
stock #9.1-134
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
4.9 x 3.6 CM (miniature)
price: $140


Glassy, gemmy pale aqua crystal with classic flattend form from the great finds at Xuebaoding. A nice clean example that is affordable and esthetic. These were plentiful just a few years ago but are now much less common and more expensive when available. Good value.
Barite on Galena and Pyrite
stock #12.1-008
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca district
Huanzala, Peru
12 x 6.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


From the William Pinch collection, a fine, undamaged and attractive Barite from the now classic finds at Huanzala. Dozens of delicate glassy Barites to 2 CM across densely cover the sulfide matrix. No damage, several of the Barite blades are dusted with sparkling pyrites. A choice specimen that is also affordable.
