Sphalerite (Cleiophane) with Galena
stock #9.1-154
Krushev Dol Mine, Madan, Rhodope Mts.
Plovdiv Oblast, Bulgaria
6.7 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


A big (2.9 CM) yellow-green Sphalerite compound crystal sits perfectly on a matrix of galena and some quartz.. Outstanding condition, this is rare older Madan material that is not often available.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CF)
stock #8.1-458
Cerro de Mercado, Victoria de Durango
Durango, Mexico
5.2 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $145


The Cerrro de Mercado apatites are a Mexican classic, and now its quite hard to find nice ones. I try to purchase any decent piece I see since I think these are still undervalued and destined to be good investments. These were once plentiful, although undamaged crystals and good matrix piece were never very common. This example is in very good condition and an esthetic matrix piece as well. The main 3.4 CM crystal is quite sharp, gemmy and is well placed on the matrix. The small specimen has good presence and glass like luster. There are a few other tiny crystals scattered about although some are damaged they are not visible from the display side.
Tourmaline (Elbaite) in stacked prisms
stock #8.1-449
Golconda Pegmatite district, Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.9 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $425


A fine zoned green gem crystal with a remarkable and rare termination. This looks like a reversed scepter as the inner termination rises above the base prism. Very sharp and clean, there are some very tiny chips on a few edges but not distracting at all. Pretty much all gem with green color ranging from yellowish to a deeper bottle green color.
SOLD Wulfenite
stock #SOLD 8.1-357
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
3.3 x 2.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


Quite simply a killer thumbnail / toenail. This is electric red with top glasslike luster and wonderful esthetics. The condition is exceptionally good too, there is outer edge chipping but the main crystals and display zone are quite pristine, For this find this is the closest to absolute perfection as I have seen. I was asked how this compares with other red wulfenites, so, for comparison I put this alongside a fine Ed Over vintage Red Cloud wulfenite. This is clearly a more brilliant red with less orange tones. This degree of brilliance and color intensity was only seen in a few pieces, This is the best Thumbnail I have seen.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-348
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
6 x 4.8 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


Rich deep orange color and glassy luster make this a very good eyecatcher. Crystals reach 2.4 CM in with many complete and well positioned. There is damage but in contect it is easy to overlook, yet it keeps this from a much higher price point.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-351
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
5.1 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A very cute and sparkling wulfenite cluster of delicate thin blades on a shard of matrix. some minor cerussite as well, but mostly wulfenite in crystals to just under 1 cm. Some chipped crystals can be found but as these are thinner than paper and incredibly fragile it is forgivable due to the many undamaged crystals. A very pretty Wulfenite for the price!
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-337
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
6.8 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $600


A very unusual and attractive Wulfenite of exceptional delicacy. This is an unusual habit for this find (and almost all wulfenite localities) that is a little like some older San Fransisco Mine and Tiger pieces, but not quite. This habit has irregular shaped blades with thin, tapered edges and seem to be complexly recrystalized and so seem very rounded and less geometric. The crystals are insanely thin sometimes thinner than a piece of paper. Consequentially there is edge damage in many areas, and some breakage but many of the larger crystals are relatively good and complete. For this ultra delicate style this is the best condition example I have seen, it A good piece for the collector who seeks the unusual and can accept some damage.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-342
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
4.9 x 4 CM (miniature)
price: $1250


Fantastic bright red-orange color and eyecatching form, this is a very 3- dimensional crystal cluster. There is almost no matrix, just interlocked bright wulfenite. Some damage can be found but not badly detracting most of the major crystals are quite good and the overall quality is fine. This wulfenite has unusual geometric outlines on some crystals that show complex parellel intergrowths. Good luster and presentation, a very good value.
