Cinnabar on Dolomite
stock #6.2-053
Chatian Mine, Fenghuang
Hunan, China
7.2x4x6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $400


A sawn matrix block shows an open vug with several forms of cinnabar crystals, some are gemmy and very sharp reaching 1 cm. Some damage to crystals at the edge of the pocket but not excessive. This relatively dense coverage (there are about 10 crystals here) is not common and the best crystals here are very good indeed.
Calcite with minor realgar
stock #6.2-064
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
14.5x13.5x11 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


A substantial cluster of fine calcites in very good condition and with great translucence and some transparency. The largest crystal is 13 CM and the color is a light yellow to amber ranging to white. A good sized cabinet piece this has several possible display sides.
Beryl (aquamarine) on Muscovite
stock #6.2-073
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8.2x5 CM (cabinet)
price: $800


A single tabular crystal perfectly perched on a reddish muscovite matrix. The crystal could not be better displayed, and is in fine condition. The crystal is 5.5 CM across and over 2 cm thick with a light green to blue color and some clear parts showing some etching. Tiny bits of muscovite are embedded in the beryl adding some texture. Really great form on this small cabinet piece!
Sphalerite on quartz with galena
stock #4.2-169.1
Shuikoushan Lead Zinc Mine, Changning, Hengyang Pref.
Hunan, China
14.3x9x10 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


A reddish druzy quartz matrix hosts several well formed ruby color sphalerite crystals reaching 2.3 CM and clusters to 5.3 cm. With top or backlighting the crystals glow well, they look darker red to black with front light. There is some nice bright galena as well. This like many has been sawn for removal. This may also be a good candidate for artful re trimming. Very reasonably priced!
Pyromorphite on matrix
stock #4.2-228.1
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi, China
5.9x3.7x 2.2 (miniature)
price: $295


Matrix with very well crystallized bright green prisms standing on end. Individual crystals to .9cm displays very well. This type of Pyromorphite is simply no longer being found, it has proven to be one of the greatest of all the Chinese mineral finds, and old stock of this quality is fast disappearing. a very fine miniature at a very good price.
Mimetite on Gossan matrix
stock #5.1-158.3
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong, China
5.9x3.8 (miniature)
price: $300


Sharp crystals with good color on a very delicate gossan matrix. A very good example from this important location which like many others is no longer producing any quality materials. Very reasonable price for a very good miniature!
Calcite with minor Realgar
stock #5.1-083
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
17x13 cm (cabinet)
price: $1650


A perfect condition large (11.5 cm) twin calcite sits esthetically on top of a mound of smaller calcites and intermingled tiny realgar crystals. All on a calcite matrix, a great example of the best quality from this find, the smaller crystals have distinctive realgar phantoms. A very attractive large cabinet piece!
Calcite with realgar
stock #5.1-085.3
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
10x7.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


A delicate, thin, tapering (7.9CM) single calcite rises above the smaller crystals. Gemmy in places and clear enough to clearly show the bright red realgar crystals inside. A very tiny flaw at the tip is only visible from one side. Even so, this is a top display calcite at a reasonable price.
