Scheelite with Fluorite, Lollingite, Magnetite etc.
stock #Alec 14B-122
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhead League
Inner Mongolia Region, China
8.2 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
Spring 2013

From an exciting 2012 find, a single bright Scheelite (3.6 CM) is neatly perched on contrasting matrix. An important note: there has been recent discussion about the yellow green color of some Scheelites with rumors of faking by dyes or other chemicals. This is not certain and may well not be true, but it does have to be considered. Color aside, the form, habit, luster and presentation of these Scheelites are just incredible. In great condition overall, the Scheelite is quite transparent and inclusions of silvery Lollingite are noted with magnification. This find will certainly be remembered as exceptional for the species and the prices of these are already increasing fast even in China.
Erythrite- large free standing crystals on Quartz
stock #12.1-291
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
3.8 x 3.6 CM (miniature)
price: $675
Spring 2013

A sweet miniature with exceptional sharp free standing crystals. The crystals are up to about 3 CM tall most of which is aerial. No damage by naked eye on the display face which is incredible for such a delicate mineral. 10 x magnification finds some minor edge chips that are just not noticeable. the back of the matrix has been sawn in order to collect this without damage. Bou Azzer is unquestionably the worlds best locale for many Cobalt minerals and especially for Erythrite. This is far above average.
Fluorite on Celestine (stepped cubes)
stock #A7-172-1365
Tule Mine, Melchor Muzaquiz
Coahuila, Mexico
6.3 x 5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Spring 2013

Two very gemmy, zoned purple crystals are perched attractively on a contrasting celestine. An older example from the ccollection of Larry White. The Fluorites are exceptionally sharp, clear and show the classic stepping that is the signature of this now classic location. As a bonus the Fluorites are sprinkled with sparkling clear to amber colored calcites. The dark edge zoning is especially pronounced and the specimen is far better than typical. The display side of this is very clean damage wise, the only cleaves are on the backside that are not visible when displayed.
Helvite with Spessartine
stock # Alec 14B-121
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
8.8 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1550
Spring 2013

An exceptionally fine Helvite with great form, color and presentation. The largest crystal is 2.5 CM in diameter, all are in undamaged condition and have the most desirable red to yellow color. The sprinkling of bright red garnets adds an extra sparkle. The location of Tongbei has produced the best Helvites ever seen, and now the location seems to be near the end. These are already modern classics and this specimen is very far above the average with super strong esthetics.
Cobaltoan Calcite
stock #13-1-002
Agoudal Mine, Bou Azzer
Souss-Massa-Draa region, Ouarzazate Province, Tazenakht, Morocco
6 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
Spring 2013

A especially choice piece from the best find of Cobaltian Calcites in Morocco in almost 20 years! This is a striking, fine and really well formed "flower". Composed of scalenohedral and hoppered scalenohedral crystals up to 2 CM long this has an electric intense pink color that is easily noticed in any lighting. A great impact specimen, it reminds me of a N'chwaning Rhodochrosite but with a cobaltian color. In very good condition overall, the only notable damage is at the outer edges, the main central crystals are excellent.
Apophyllite with Natrolite on Albite
stock #Alec 10-1044
Das Antas Tunnel
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
7.7 x 6.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
Spring 2013

A very nice Brazilian specimen from the find of the late 1960's at the Dos Antas tunnel. At that time these were big news in the mineral world and many considered these to be the worlds best green Apophyllites. They are notably different from anything that came out later in great floods from India. This is an esthetic, undamaged example from a somewhat obscure locality. A nice addition for any Zeolite or Brazilian collection.
Roselite (well crystallizedl)
stock #12.1-251
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
6.8 x 4.6 x 5 Cm (cabinet)
price: $875
Spring 2013

An especially "electric" colorful specimen with large well defined crystals and outstanding luster. The matrix is a block of pinkish dolomite/ calcite with some of the altered serpentine country rock adhering. The Roselites are in a shallow depression and contrast well with the host matrix. Very striking specimen with great impact. Bou Azzer Roselites are by far the best ever found and this is a quite fine example.
Mimetite (classic wet botryoidal)
stock #12.1-309
San Pedro Corralitos, Municipio de Casas Grandes
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.8 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $360
Spring 2013

From the most desirable early find (1968-69) at San Pedro Corralitos, this is a very lustrous "wet" looking yellow Mimetite. A little larger than a thumbnail, this specimen has a lot of eye appeal despite its size. No damage, great color and form, the quality of these first specimens was never seen since then- despite more than 40 years of looking!
