Peridote / Forsterite - melted look gem crystal
stock #8-AE-846
Sapat Gall, Naran, Kaghan Valley, Mansehra District
Kyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan
1.7 x 1.3 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $80


Classic habit, deep color and melted style surface on a small Gem Peridot. The condition is undamaged and a good value. The Sapat finds of Pakistan have provided many nice specimens, small ones like this are still quite affordable.
Vanadinite on Barite
stock #15.1-400
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.8 x 2.3 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $350


Vanadinite with outstanding intense color and bright luster set on contrasting white Barite blades. This combination is the least common and the most desirable. These specimens are laboriously dug without power tools by small teams in cramped artisenal mines and require years of labor to reach a good pocket. Choice and in excellent condition, Vanadinite of this high quality is one of the best mineral values available today. The color is hard to appreciate on a computer, in person it is brilliant.
Epidote and Prehnite
stock #15.1-498
Sadiola Mine
Kayes Region, Mali
5.8 x 4.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $240


A superb small cabinet Epidote and Prehnite specimen from the prolific find in Mali. Of the many specimens that have come out few have this bright luster, color and esthetics. The Prehnite ball is elegantly encased by the Epidote crystals that are in perfect condition. Far better than typical "mine run" quality. Due to the large recent production, this is an economical yet very choice specimen.
Smithsonite (Pink Cobaltoan)
stock #17.1-337
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
3.2 x 2.3 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $250


Pink gemmy crystals of Cobaltoan Smithsonite in on a perfect condition thumbnail. From the great Tsumeb mine, this looks better in person, has the rich, lustrous color that is the most desiarable. The better Tsumeb pink Smithsonites are the worlds best, this small specimen show why.
Spessartine on Hyalite Opal and Quartz
stock #15.1-471
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
6.1 x 3.8 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


A very remarkable and attractive Tongbei Spessartine quite unlike others. This matrix is a Quartz crystal that is encased in a layer of Kaolin that is in turn covered by a hard jacket of Hyalite Opal. The Opal is densely studded with sharp Spessartine crystals that are deep red and lustrous. Tongbei was at one time producing many fine specimens but is now exhausted with very little if any new production, now a classic location. The Garnets are choice and in fine condition, the form and contrasts make a nice display.
Cuprosklodowskite with Kasolite, Sklodowskite etc
stock #8.AE-869
Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Western area
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.5 x 4.4 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $675


Perhaps the most beautiful and richly colored U mineral, Cuprosklodowskite from the Musonoi mine is revered by collectors, a "must have" specie. This specimen is quite fine, well crystallized with a dense mass of brilliant green needles protruding from a shallow vug. Several other rare minerals are also present including bright yellow Kasolite in balls and slender crystals. Except for this find in the Congo some decades ago these rare minerals are usually far from esthetic. This specimen is from that older era and quite a bit above average. Now very uncommon on the market in such quality.
SOLD Galena single Cubo-octahedral crystal
stock #SOLD Alec-22-174
Viburnum Trend, Reynolds Conty (Iron Co.)
Missouri, United States
2.6 x 2.3 x 2.6 (thumbnail)
price: $0


A textbook perfect model of the cubo-octahedron form with bright faces and in perfect condition. Aside from a tiny bit of adhering matrix this is all Galena and complete on all sides. A super thumbnail Galena from the now classic Vibernum Trend. Uncommon habit in fine undamaged condition.
Amethyst -
stock #15.1-520
Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola
Mpumalanga, South Africa
7.3 x 5.6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
new june 17

From the find 3 years ago in the almost unpronounceable locale of Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola. This is the sought after deep purple color that has not been found in more recent digging there. This small cabinet piece has excellent form and color. "Cactus" habit quartz are usually much more pale or are not even purple. The royal purple this piece has is the most uncommon and most desired. In fine undamaged condition,
