Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF) on Muscovite
stock #6.2-093
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.6 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


A fine, bright and glassy Apatite CaF sits esthetically in a nest of Muscovite. From the high elevation locality of Xuebaoding best known for great Scheelites, these are now very hard to find in such good condition. The main crystal is over 2 CM across (this is large for the locality) and has excellent pink-violet color. Strongly fluorescent and gemmy, a very attractive example.
Vesuvianite (with Mangoan-Vesuvianite)
stock #9.1-159
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.1 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A very well crystallized miniature with glasslike green crystals that show the purple cores of the Mangoan vesuvianite. The largest crystal is 2 cm across and is undamaged on the display side. The back and sides have contacts and removal breaks that while not distracting, can be seen. Quite attractive and a good example of an important discovery that is now gone.
Vesuvianite and Mangoan-Vesuvianite
stock #9.1-160
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
5.7 x 5.3 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $320


Outstanding example of the species and this closed locality. A brilliant, sparkling cluster of jewel like crystals that range from a few millimeteres up to 1.8 CM. The luster is excellent and crystals are gemmy. Esthetic and eyecatching, this is far better than average for this classic find. Very clean of damage and displays well from many angles. The color is more vivid and rich in person.
Calcite (frosted) on Quartz
stock #9.1-163
Rossie Lead Mine, St. Lawrence Co.
New York, United States
4.8 x 4 CM (miniature)
price: $250


From the classic old locality of Rossie that was active from 1830 to 1860. A nicely frosted main crystal with a few smaller on the sides sits on a quartz matrix. No damage. good clarity and some internal rainbows . This seems to be an untwinned crystal that was less common at Rossie. Calcites from here were used in many crystalographic illustrations and studies in the classic literature. These are rarely available now.
Azurite, Malachite w. Minor Cuprite and unknown micro xls.
stock #9.1-164
Cole Shaft, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise County
Arizona, United States
8.3 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A pretty and quite esthetic classic from the John Marshall collection, previously in R. Graeme collection. Labels included list the exact locality as "141 F stope, 1200' (366M) level, Cole shaft." Sharp, undamaged and lusterous blue azurites to 1.3 CM in size scattered in a green vug about 5 CM across. Nice Bisbee material has become very expensive and much less common. A very good value.
Chalcopyrite (skeletal Crystals) and Enstatite
stock #9.1-165
French Creek Mines, St Peters, Chester Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
4.5 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $350


A delicate and esthetic classic. The early French Creek Chalcos are distinctive and very much sought after, they are definately the most desired US chalcopyrites. The skeletal growth structures make very intricate geometric forms that are well presented here. The enstatite crystals reach 1.6 CM and are all terminated. These make a fine contrast and the overall presentaion is very fine.
Fluorite (Pink- Orange Octahedral) on Muscovite
stock #9.1-166
Chumar Bakhoor, Hunza Valley
Gilgit, Northern Areas, Pakistan
8.4 x 6.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $850


A single modified octahedron (3 CM) of Fluorite set esthetically in a nest of Muscovite blades. The Fluorite has a slight frosting but is very clear internally and the color is especially unusual, being pinkish with an orange hue. At quick glance this can even look like a Scheelite. Overall in good condition, there are some rough areas from muscovite contacts as seen in the photos, they are not distracting. For any Fluorite or Pakistani suite, this is a very desirable addition.
Sphalerite
stock #AC-017
Joplin Field, Tri State District, Jasper County
Missouri, United States
8.6 x 5.4 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $325


A brilliant and pristine red Sphalerite from the classic Tri State district. Even though this was once easilly available it was not usually as attractive as this piece. The mines have been closed for decades now and is now quite uncommon to find any good USA "ruby jack". A sizable vug of 7.5 Cm across is packed with lusterous sparkling Ruby color crystals that reach 1.1 CM however most are smaller. No damage, great esthetics and all crystals are translucent. There are some saddle shape Dolomites and a sprinkling of Chalcopyrite as well for a nice contrast. The back of the matrix block has a nice display of Sphalerite as well (6 CM across), and would be an excellent piece on its own. Very classy color and great eye appeal as well as being an affordable classic US piece!
