Wulfenite (ex Ed Over, large compound crystal group)
stock #AC-419
Hilltop mine (Hand Mine),Rustier Park, Chiricahua Mts. Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
4.1 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $900


For this fabled location, this specimen is exceptional for size and form. Obtained by Ed Over in the 1930's for Arthur Montgomery and later sold by Schortmann's Minerals, this specimen stands apart from others. The Hilltop Mine in the Chiricahua Mts. is a long closed locale. Most Specimens have 1+ CM yellow crystals on matrix and are highly desirable (and expensive) when available. A few unusually large crystals were found but most were badly damaged or crudely formed. At over 4 CM across, this is the largest Hilltop crystal cluster I have handled. More orange than usual with a secondary druse of tiny bright yellow crystals that sets off the larger blades well. Unfortunately, chipping is visible along one edge but perhaps forgivable on a remarkable old classic.
Sulphur (native crystals on Aragonite)
stock #6.2-946
Agrigento, Agrigento province
Sicily, Italy
7.5 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Excellent large zoned yellow crystals to 3 CM size are clustered in a hemispheric arrangement on a thin matrix. Good clarity with gemmy areas and selective frosting on some faces. In excellent condition despite the age and delicacy of this specimen. A very pretty classic specimen, and far better in person.
Pyromorphite
stock #4.2-372
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
7 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


A fine intense green Pyro from the incredible 2001 find at the Daoping Mine. A This has the delicate accicular habit in 2 distinct generations that are sprouting from a large vug. Despite the delicacy of this specimen there is minimal damage (mostly at the outer edges) and it displays very well. A rich wet look luster adds to the visual impact. Daoping Pyros are some of the finest ever found, and still relatively affordable.
Mimetite (green Botryoidal)
stock #10.1-318
Level 13, Potosi Mine, Santa Eulalia
Chihuahua,
6.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Green Balls of rich, heavy Mimetite cover one surface of the gossan matrix. An older piece, pre 1975 and a very nice example of this uncommon style and form. This is similar to the famous bright yellow San Pedros De Corallitos Mimetites but green and wet looking. The balls are also more defined and bigger than the Mina Oujella mimetites. There is some chipping on a few balls but not distracting at all. Quite distinctive.
Epidote (sharp Prismatic form)
stock #12.1-010
Capelinha, Jequitinhouha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.1 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $160


Sharp, bright shining lustre and well composed. The "back" side has a light dusting of secondary epidotes so it is slightly duller, the "front" is just glassy clean and pretty. From a small find that was not typical, these look much better than most Capelinha Epidotes. Very good display and more affordable than other locations.
Epidote (doubly terminated) on Quartz (doubly terminated)
stock #12.1-011
Capelinha, Jequitinhouha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.3 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $120


Real unusual and quite remarkable, a perfect floater! Doubly terminated epidote crystals (largest is 2.4 CM) on a clear quartz 7.3 CM long that is also doubly terminated. Several smaller epidotes penetrate into the quartz and can be seen from all sides. I have never seen any other like this.
Rutile (epitaxial) on Hematite
stock #12.1-013
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A modern classic, these star shaped radial rutile specimens are simply fantastic. When first found in Brazil, these were a huge sensation, the best ever seen. This is a good, small miniature that is far less expensive than larger examples, but still has a good impact. With brilliant luster, this specimen is a textbook example of epitaxy. These were rather plentiful from Brazilian dealers 3 years ago but are now getting scarce.
SOLD Rutile ( single crystal with overgrowths))
stock #SOLD 12.1-014
Pedra Preta Pit, Serra das Eguas, Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $0


A deep red prism crystal that is complete, sharp, lustrous and translucent. From a find about 4 years ago, there were not many found. Chipping on edges seen with 10x magnification, but still displays well. The form is unusual too with a central prism that has a series of parallel overgrowths on the sides that are orienting themselves in classic twin law.
