Rhodochrosite on Quartz with Sphalerite etc
stock #Alec-15-073
Lame (Lamo) Zn-CU deposit, Dachang, Nandan, Hechi Prefecture
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
10 x 8.7 x 7.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


A very esthetic specimen ex. Shields Flynn Collection that presents several disk-like sharp Rhodo crystals (up to 2.6 CM) nicely perched on large quartz prisms. This was from the one time find at Lamo Mine (Quanxi, China)in 2003. Very good contrast and color, the Rhodos are in fine condition as are most of the quartz crystals (only one has some tip bruising). Later finds some 20 KM from this mine produced fine Rhodochrosite which became quite famous but none with this look. This piece was sourced by Bert Ottens and is excellent for this find.
Epidote (gemmy, prismatic)
stock #A-17-233
Hachupa (Hashupi). Shigar Valley, Skardu District
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
6.4 x .8 x .7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $160


A single sharp complete Epidote crystal that is nicely terminated, clear and glassy. Unlike many of the Pakistani Epidotes which are flattened in cross section, this is a pencil like prism that also shows color zoning from greenish brown to yellow. Very good condition and a nice, simple yet affordable gem crystal.
Barite with Malachite inclusions
stock #Alec-19-235
Likasi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.9 x 3.2 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
pre Tucson 2015 update

Esthetic, sharp green and glassy Barites are perched on a matrix along with some small zones of Malachite in an attractive specimen. From the famous finds of the 1980-90's this is a very colorful Barite with several nice angles for display. In very good condition, there is a little minor chipping mostly on the backside and not noticable without magnification. A good value, these have become quite expensive and few are this attractive.
Topaz with, Elbaite, etc.
stock #14.1-044
Murzinka Mine,Sarapulka Dist., Sverdlovskaya Oblast, Middle Urals
Urals Region, Russia
3.6 x 2.6 x2.4 (small miniature)
price: $195


A small but very esthetic version of classic light blue topaz from the Urals. A gem clear crystal with pale blue color at 1.9 CM in size is neatly perched on contrasting matrix. Small additional crystals of Tourmaline are on the matrix adding interest. Very good condition damage wise this presents nicely.
Barite (gem clear w. Phantoms)
stock #Alec-213-230
Sulcis
Sardinia, Italy
5.5 x 3.5 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $245


An older, well formed amber colored Barite from the Sulcis area of Caligari in Sardinia. Ex. Mineral Gallery (K. Ward) This shows several good phantoms with backlighting, and has a second generation overgrowth in some areas. Over all in fairly good condition there is contacting on one side and at the rear, small edge chipping is present but not easily seen from the logical display angle. A nice, good color piece from a classic local with the main crystal reaching 4.8 CM.
Cassiterite
stock #4.2-269
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8 x 7.4 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A well placed cluster of lustrous Cassiterite perched on the classic Muscovite matrix of Mt. Xuebaoding. Very nice presentation and contrast, the Cassiterite is just over 4 CM across and in very good condition. By naked eye there is no damage but good magnification shows slight edge chips that are not at all distracting on display.
Tourmaline (Elbaite/Liddicoatite) "mushroom form"
stock #0810-JM-4200
Luc Yen
Yen Bai Province, Vietnam
4.9 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $580


An early piece of well formed multi-color tourmaline from the now famous deposits at Luc Yen, Vietnam. Very sharp and with glassy luster, this is in superb condition with no visible damage to the crystal. Better in person and a little more gemmy than the photos show. This is quite likely a mix of Elbaite and Liddicoatite but has not been analyzed to determine this. Ex John Marshall collection, this is well above the quality of the vast majority of these Tourmalines, and a nice addition to any suite.
Cerussite
stock #13.1-122
Flux Mine, Patagonia
Arizona, United States
3.6 x 3.1 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $300


A very esthetic, 3 dimensional specimen with well formed delicate crystals from the great finds of the 1980's at the Flux Mine. These are all quite delicate and usually show considerable damage, but this is an unusually pristine example. The sprays of Cerussite contrast with the black matrix very well. This can be packed and shipped but we recommend insurance since it is so delicate. Now an American classic this is a far above average toenail specimen.
