Barite with Calcite included by Hematite
stock #Alec-2-029
Frizington, West Cumberland Iron Field
Cumbria, England
8.8 x 6.3 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $1200


Even if you have seen a lot of great classic English Barites, this one is something special! The Barite blades are sharp, glassy to 6 CM in size, with a pale blue-grey color and partly included by dark red hematite. Just that is enough for a fine collection, but what makes this exceptional is the bright gem clear Calcites that are also partly included by hematite encrusting selective faces of the Barite. Very esthetic, the main crystals are in perfect condition but some edge and base damage (from removal) is noted, it will not be noticed from most logical display angles.
Erythrite
stock #ALEC 4-294
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
6.2 x 4.1 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $675


The Erythrites of Bou Azzer are the worlds finest. They come out sporadically and the best examples are very much in demand. This is a very fine example, in perfect condition, with showy esthetics, sharp bright crystals and great color. Displays from several angles, a very good value on a contemporary classic!
Vesuvianite
stock #ALEC 5- 063
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.7 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $680


Jeffrey Mine vesuvianites are modern classics, now that the mines are closed good examples are now very hard to find. This piece hosts fine, sharp, glassy gem crystals with bright yellow green color. very good quality and value!
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-513
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.5 x 3.7 CM (miniature)
price: $360


A excellent cluster of glassy, bright gem Vesuvianites from the now closed Jeffrey Mine. Modern Classics, good examples are now very scarce. A lustrous medium green piece in excellent condition that shows small zones of deep purple and dark emerald green. Expect these to appreciate well.
Amethyst (gem clear phantom) with Prehnite and Lepidochrosite
stock #Alec-4-267
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
10 x 6.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450


A superb example of a very fine phantom quartz from this classic location. Pristine, damage free and optically clear main crystal (6 CM tall) is decorated with light green Prehnite balls and holds elegant, wispy phantoms. From every angle this displays well, but my personal favorite is looking straight down from the top (the C axis. The matrix block is sawn on the underside and on some edges, so it sits perfectly on its own. These are often collected using diamond saws to avoid damage. It is possible to further trim the specimen to remove all traces of the sawing, but for me it is fine as is. If you like good quartz, you will love this specimen!
Spinel (Huge compound crystal)
stock #8DK-170
Luc Yen
Yen Bai Province, Vietnam
9.2 x7.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $600


Gigantic stacked red-purple octahedrons in symetrical position. The color is good the luster is glossy and there are even some gemmy zones. The largest distinct crystal face is 7.3 CM across and shows triangular hoppering. For the size this is a very impressive specimen and is from the early finds over 20 years ago.
Pyromorphite on Barite (Unusual twisted crystals)
stock #1024-JM-2646
Mine des Farges, Ussel, Correze
Limousin, France
8.2 x 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100


A rich, classic des Farges specimen from the John Marshall Pyromorphite collection. A pretty and unusual piece that is also well documented, this was found in 1965. Deep green color and wet luster with both hoppered hollow crystals and twisting tube forms covers the display face densely. The matrix is pure barite with typical platy crystals and dark staining. A very good example that is better in hand.
Rhodochrosite on Acanthite with Native Silver, Galena etc.
stock #9.1-120
Wudong mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh
Guangxi, China
8.5 x 6.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $5800


A remarkable, fine Silver and Rhodochrosite specimen, one of the best from the 2009 finds at Wuzoh. A crystallized cluster of etched Rhodo 4.7 CM in diameter sits on a bed of mixed Acanthite and Galena crystals. The rest of the matrix is Sphalerite and quartz with small zones of native silver in wires and flattened crystals. Some of the Galena has an overgrowth of Acanthite and seems to be psudomorphing. Much galena from this zone is highly argentiferous and this specimen shows that well. Impressive esthetics the largest Rhodo rhomb is 1 CM, giving great contrast to the metallic sulfides. For some reason specimens from this mine have more native silver on the back or sides away from the well developed crystals on the front. This is no exception, the best silver is on the left side and top rear. Displays well.
