Scheelite
stock #7 CNA-424
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
10x6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $650


Way better than most, this is a glassy, lustrous and sharp chain of gemmy Scheelites (largest is 4.6 CM) That really glows with any backlighting. Lots of gemmy areas with all of the display side and most of the back damage free. Displays well from several angles. Formerly in the Mike Walter collection.
Magnetite on Matrix
stock #7 CNA-435
Gaoligong Shan, Baoshan Prefecture
Yunnan, China
10.8 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


A huge 8 CM magnetite "stretched" octahedron sits on top of a pegmatite matrix that has several other fine magnetites. Super esthetic and with great patina on the display faces this is the best Chinese Magnetite I have seen. The faces show well defined growth hillocks and the "front" as I see it is damage free, there is a contact on the back side. Impressive for any magnetite and incredible from China!
Stannite on Quartz and Muscovite
stock #7-CNA-571
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
7.4x5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250


The main Stannite is over 2CM, and has exceptional form, luster and is sharp and complete with stacked growth "towers" on the apexes of the crystal. For this rare specie this is a huge crystal with remarkable shape, much better than the usual globular masses without distinct faces. Overall esthetics and condition are fantastic for this usually nondescript mineral. The color ranges from silver black to a brassy golden depending on the angle of illumination. Yaogangzian Stannites are the best in the world, redefining the species, this is a very fine example.
Pyromorphite
stock #7 CNA-587
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi, China
11.3 x 8.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $3750


A large, fine Pyromorphite from the 2000-2001 discoveries at Daoping, now recognized as one of the best finds in the world. The recent finds have not had the same color or stature of the best of the early materials which are now classics and richly priced when available. This pice is all pyromorphite, there is no matrix, the front is densely packed with radiating crystal clusters with individuals to just over 1 CM. Very close examination shows a few small spots with chipping on crystals, this is really minor and not seen in casual inspection but it keeps the price of this from being over 10K. Great display piece with a good 3 dimensional presentation.
Elbaite Tourmaiine
stock #7 -13-082
Paroon Valley
Konar (Kunar) Province, Afganistan
5.4x3.3 (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $975


A big and glassy crystal with a very dark blue green shaft becomes a lighter blue towords the top, grades to a water clear zone and ends with a thin pink-red cap. Great luster and in very good condition, with only very tiny bits of edge wear that is not easy to find and a small inobtrusive chip to the back aside of the termination. While not distracting, this damage exists and makes the crystal much less expensive yet it looks like it cost far more.
Elbaite
stock #7.CAL-183
Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill,Mesa Grande District, San Diego County
California, United States
4.6x2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $1250


A richly zoned crystal that is very sharp and damage free. This is the classic bicolor for this mine showing a sharp flat termination. It has much richer than usual color depth and really glows with any backlight.
Brazilianite
stock #6.4-101
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
8.5x7 CM. Xls to 2CM (cabinet)
price: $850


A fine spray of sharp, lustrous and brilliant yellow-green Brazilianites wrap the matrix in an esthetic arrangement. Outstanding gemmy quality, all the main crystals are perfect, however there is some damage at the edges to small crystals that is not distracting. A very fine, esthetic matrix piece of what is perhaps the best quality find of this mineral in decades.
Crystalized Gold
stock #7- CALIF -065
Eagles Nest Mine, Placer County
California, United States
6.8x3.9 CM 48 grams (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $4400


A very fine, classic California crystalized gold with minor offsetting milky quartz . Almost 7 CM across, and over 48 grams this is a substantial flat piece that displays well from either side. A close looks shows complex forms, wires and stretched octahedra. Slightly darker and with a more matt luster compared to some other Eagles Nest gold, this is very esthetic. Based on weight and size alone it is a fine value!
