Superb glassy garnets arranged in parallel or epitaxial stack making a wonderful natural sculpture. Perched on Muscovite crystals the Spessartine is very lustrous and in fine condition. Displays well from several angles, this was collected almost 25 years ago. Eyecatching and esthetic.
Fluorite- gem clear crystal on Calcite
stock #17.1-219
Cantera Llamas, Duyos, Caravia
Asturias, Spain
4.5 x 2.2 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380
new june 17

From the 2016 find at the Llamas quarry this is a super clear and glassy Fluorite with sharp edge beveling on all sides. Nicely perched on the Calcite matrix with a few extra tiny Fluorites for extra sparkle. Impressive perfection even under 20x magnification there are no nicks or imperfections. In some photos what appears as an internal cloud or veil is only external microscopic cubic indents on one face. The interior is certainly colorless and absolutely clear. This small location only produces a few nice pieces in any year and rarly this level of perfection.

Intense translucent green Octahedron perfectly set on sharp Quartz crystals. Ata quick glance a fine and attractive piece but the really significant feature is seen on a closer look. All the corners of the Octa have colorless epitaxial caps of Fluorite that is also well crystallized. A textbook perfect and esthetic specimen with incredible form. In undamaged condition and with top color, this was from a small find at Riemvasmaak 3 years ago.

Elba Island, Livorno Province
Tuscany, Italy
1.3 x .6 x .5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $440
new june 17

A very old, classic specimen mounted on a 19th century wooden pedestal. Old labels are included one of which shows a date of 1810 or 1870 (very hard to read). Either way this is a classic, antique piece with very good condition, form and clarity in the body. Type locality and a great addition to any display of vintage or modern tourmaline.
Corundum V. Ruby in Schist
stock #Alec-12-268
Zazatotsy Quarry, Ihosy District, Horombe Region
Fianarantsoa, Madagascar
6.8 x 3.4 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
new june 17

A big and sharp (2.7CM) main Ruby crystal is well exposed and nicely perched on the matrix. Very good color with some purple hues seen in some lighting that indicates that the core of the crystal may be a blue Sapphire. The crystal habit is the rare flattened habit with one overdeveloped face that dominates the prism. In fine condition with excellent esthetics, this also shows the crossing lines of inclusions that cause a star reflection on the terminations.
Anglesite with Linarite etc- EX Lechner, Shortmann
stock #13.1-069
Bruche Mine, Musen, Siegerland
North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
4.8 x 3.9 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $350
new june 17

A classic specimen from the famed Lechner collection of Austria, later sold by the Schortmanns in 1950-52. A Gossan and decomposed Galena matrix full of vugs hosts sharp and in some cases gemmy Anglesites. Scattered small Linarite crystals are near, on and in the Anglesites. The largest Anglesite is 8MM, several crystal forms and possibly some twinning is noted. Choice old piece.
Fluorite, Pink single crystal
stock #Alkec-20-079
Planggenstock, Goscheneralp, Goschenen Valley
Canton Uri, Switzerland
2.1 x 1.8 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
new june 17

Alpine pink Fluorite with a slight zoning, frosted faces and classic habit. Mounted on a turned wooden spindle this is a nice thumbnail that wont break the bank. Not perfect, there is contacting and cleaving on the underside so this is really about the top half of the octahedron, which is the logical display side. As a result the price is far less than usual for a nice Swiss Fluorite. Excellent value

In excellent condition, no visible damage.
