Spring 2017

Super rich specimen with sharp and lustrous Lazulite crystals dominating the display face. Good Rapid Creek Lazulite are the best ever found of this specie, and unlike any other location in the world. Magnification shows several of other phosphate minerals including what looks like fine Collinsite and Kulanite crystals. The Lazulites are in most cases transparent to translucent and have rich color. Loaded with other micro minerals this is attractive on a shelf or under a scope. Well above average quality for the locale the Lazulites are very large at over 1 CM.

Exceptional quality Alaskan Garnet well exposed on contrasting schist. Esthetic old specimen with a quality rarely seen, the largest Almandine is 2.7 CM. Some areas of the Garnets are translucent with slight rounded edges and nice growth details on larger faces. In fine condition, the crystals show textbook typical modifications and have a rich purple-red color. A classic US location.
Topaz (Imperial type, new find of zoned gem)
stock #17.1-137
Antonio Pereira Mine, Ouro Preto
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.3 x 1.2 x .8 CM (miniature)
price: $525
Spring 2017

A new find of Imperial topaz with zoned inclusions from the famed Ouro Preto. This late 2016 find was less than a dozen crystals that have deep brown to near black inclusions and "clouds" on the lower areas of the crystals. The tops and terminations are very fine, gem clear and slightly zoned in hues of yellow to orange. This world class locale has produced unique "imperial" Topaz for many decades. This find is very special, a unique habit that is different but still exhibits the well known fine gem crystal that is classic from here. In person this is more transparent, lustrous and undamaged, the top more traditional section of the crystal is well above average for the locale.

A large and super esthetic Auglaize Fluorite. From the heyday of the quarry production over 20 years ago, this is an eyecatching piece with good iridescence that has to be seen in person to appreciate. The open cavity here holds dozens of small perfect orange-brown cubes that off set larger gemmy purple cubes up to 1.5 CM. This is the best large matrix piece I have seen for sale.

An impressive specimen far beyond average with very large Spessartine of deep red- orange color perched on dark Quartz. Strongly esthetic and with a eye catching architecture.

Textbook perfect crystals of the rare mineral Kesterite that are coated with green Mushingtonite and perched on a Muscovite matrix.

A modern Chinese classic.
