Hematite (large twinned crystals)
stock #10.1-307
Ouro Preto
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.3 x 4.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $200


A big, bright metallic black complex twin of crystallized Hematite. Displays well from several angles, there is some inevitable chipping and contacts, but these are not distracting. The specimen is very complex and presents many forms with some mirror bright faces and others with very fine striations. These Brazilian Hematites rank well alongside the worlds best and are relatively very affordable.
Rutile ( single crystal with overgrowths))
stock #12.1-014
Pedra Preta Pit, Serra das Eguas, Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $125


A deep red prism crystal that is complete, sharp, lustrous and translucent. From a find about 4 years ago, there were not many found. Chipping on edges seen with 10x magnification, but still displays well. The form is unusual too with a central prism that has a series of parallel overgrowths on the sides that are orienting themselves in classic twin law.
Rutile (epitaxial) on Hematite
stock #12.1-013
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A modern classic, these star shaped radial rutile specimens are simply fantastic. When first found in Brazil, these were a huge sensation, the best ever seen. This is a good, small miniature that is far less expensive than larger examples, but still has a good impact. With brilliant luster, this specimen is a textbook example of epitaxy. These were rather plentiful from Brazilian dealers 3 years ago but are now getting scarce.
Epidote (doubly terminated) on Quartz (doubly terminated)
stock #12.1-011
Capelinha, Jequitinhouha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.3 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $120


Real unusual and quite remarkable, a perfect floater! Doubly terminated epidote crystals (largest is 2.4 CM) on a clear quartz 7.3 CM long that is also doubly terminated. Several smaller epidotes penetrate into the quartz and can be seen from all sides. I have never seen any other like this.
Epidote (sharp Prismatic form)
stock #12.1-010
Capelinha, Jequitinhouha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.1 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $160


Sharp, bright shining lustre and well composed. The "back" side has a light dusting of secondary epidotes so it is slightly duller, the "front" is just glassy clean and pretty. From a small find that was not typical, these look much better than most Capelinha Epidotes. Very good display and more affordable than other locations.
Mimetite (green Botryoidal)
stock #10.1-318
Level 13, Potosi Mine, Santa Eulalia
Chihuahua,
6.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Green Balls of rich, heavy Mimetite cover one surface of the gossan matrix. An older piece, pre 1975 and a very nice example of this uncommon style and form. This is similar to the famous bright yellow San Pedros De Corallitos Mimetites but green and wet looking. The balls are also more defined and bigger than the Mina Oujella mimetites. There is some chipping on a few balls but not distracting at all. Quite distinctive.
Cassiterite (gemmy)
stock #10.1-320
Ximeng County, Pu'er Prefecture
Yunnan, China
5.8 x 3.5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $260


Glass like gemmy Cassiterites up to 1.8 CM set on a contrasting matrix. It has become hard to find good Ximeng Cassiterites, they are distinctive and desirable, with higher luster than most any other locations. This is a good example that really shines in good light.
Epidote and Quartz
stock #10.1-336
Green Monster Mountain, Prince of Wales Island, Prince of Wales Island
Alaska, United States
4.2 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $185


A small but very pretty Alaskan Epidote. The largest crystal is 3.2 CM long, glassy bright and decorated with quartz crystals. There is contacting on the perimeter and rear of the specimen but the main crystals are sharp and undamaged. A nice, affordable example of an American classic.are
