Olmite (poldervartite)
stock #12.1-134
N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
Kuruman, South Africa
5.3 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $110
Spring 2013

A single bright and well formed crystal of Olmiite is nicely perched on the Manganese matrix. Fine condition and well presented, this is a nice single crystal (1.2 CM) on matrix that shows great color, form and luster well. Not just a ball this has well defines crystal faces unlike most specimens. This find has produced many forms of this rare mineral, it is a great time to get examples of this esthetic specie while they are still affordable.
Fluorite on Limonite (unusual triple penetration twins)
stock #Alec 1-027
Heights Mine, Durham, Weardale County
, England
8.8 x 5.7 (cabinet)
price: $350
Spring 2013

This is really something different! English Fluorites are famed for the sharp penetration twins and daylight fluorescent glassy crystals. I have never seen a symetrical TRIPLE penetration like this. Nice color and luster, gemmy crystals reach to 1.7 CM with a few minor edge chips here and there, overall in nice shape. The condition is shown clearly in the photos. An oddity for a good Fluorite suite!
Babingtonite on Prehnite
stock #8.1-234
Miegu County, Liangshan Autonomous Prefecture
Sichuan, China
6.5 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $130
Spring 2013

The Meigu area produced the best Babingtonites in the world. Enough have been found to make affordable pieces available now. The top pieces still sell for huge sums even in China. This is a nice specimen, though not a top piece, offered at an affordable price. If from a US locality USA just 10 years ago it would have sold for 1500-2000$ quickly! These finds give every collector a chance to have a good example. This has crystals to 2 CM with good luster on green Prehnite. More pretty in person.
Malachite Psudo after Azurite
stock #Alec 3-375
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
12.4 x 7.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $875
Spring 2013

An impressive larger piece with great form and silky luster. Individual crystals to 4 CM long show the shape of the original Azurites fully replaced by rich green Malachite. From the now finished finds at Milpillas, this is already a classic, yet still affordable. Good Malachite psuedos were never common here, but the good ones were some of the best ever found anyplace. This is a really fine example.
Calcite enclosing Chalcopyrite
stock #AC-385
Faraday Mine, Farady Township, Bancroft District, Hastings County
Ontario, Canada
5.5 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
Spring 2013

Ex Joe Stachura. From the one time find about 30 years ago, this is a killer example of this esthetic discovery. A glass clear calcite (optical grade) encloses a garden like array of bright Chalcopyrite in many forms. The impact and condition are great, some minor rough spots exist as seen on the photos but this is still far better than most. Rare to find on the market, these are treasured pieces unlike anything else!
Stibnite on (and in) Fluorite Cubes
stock #6.2-333
Dehegou Mine, (Zhangergou, Lushi) Lushi County
Henan, China
9 x 8.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Tucson group

The relatively rare pyramidal or "4 sided pointed chisel tip" termination is well displayed on this stibnite and the matrix is almost pure cubic Fluorite included by stibnite. Some stibnites display a brassy and blue irridescent alterations. The largest crystals are perfect but there is minor damage elsewhere and a broken stib near the center that can be seen depending on the angle of display. That said it is still very displayable, esthetic and shows a rarer crystal form and a great association.
Azurite and Mottramite
stock #Alec 5-046
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.6 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $1450
Spring 2013

An intense and fine miniature! Superb esthetics and in perfect condition, this has bright glassy lustre and fine color contrast. Tsumeb produced lots of Azurites, but a very small percentage were this good. For the size this is about as pretty as an Azurite can get. A real bargain for this closed, classic location!
Bornite (very fine crystals) with Chalcocite, Quartz, Barite, Chalcopyrite etc.
stock #9.1-296
Dzhezkazgan Oblast
Karaganda Oblast (Qaragandy Oblysy), Kazakhstan
10.7 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $875
Spring 2013

EX. Ernie Schlichter. Bornite is not a rare mineral but in good crystals it is is super rare! The best have come from Kahzakstan, and this is an esthetic and above average example with sharp crystals reaching 2.3 CM on contrasting matrix. Displays great with excellent patina of Blue-Black-Silver hues. By naked eye the condition is quite fine, there are chips found with magnification and typical hairline cracks are noted as seen in the photos. This is in great condition overall for such a delicate mineral, and very attractive for this usually drab specie!
