Smithsonite with Cerussite and Calcite
stock #17.1-333
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
3.6 x 2.3 x 1.7 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $290
Pre Holiday 2017

This specimen is one of a kind, a unique Tsumeb oddity with great esthetics. An elongated, gemmy crystal of Smithsonite rises from a gossan matrix and hosts a few gem clear smokey Cerussites. The Smithsonite shows signs of being a compound crystal with parallel growth but a single termination. The Cerussites and a tiny part of the Smithsonite (only seen with magnification) are chipped but this is on the "back" not visible on display, the front and side view are pristine undamaged. Tiny Calcites with some odd habits are also scattered on the matrix. The crazy composition of this specimen is typical of why so many collectors love Tsumeb minerals.
Peridote / Forsterite - melted look gem crystal
stock #8-AE-846
Sapat Gall, Naran, Kaghan Valley, Mansehra District
Kyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan
1.7 x 1.3 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $80
Pre Holiday 2017

Classic habit, deep color and melted style surface on a small Gem Peridot. The condition is undamaged and a good value. The Sapat finds of Pakistan have provided many nice specimens, small ones like this are still quite affordable.
Vanadinite on Barite
stock #15.1-400
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.8 x 2.3 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Pre Holiday 2017

Vanadinite with outstanding intense color and bright luster set on contrasting white Barite blades. This combination is the least common and the most desirable. These specimens are laboriously dug without power tools by small teams in cramped artisenal mines and require years of labor to reach a good pocket. Choice and in excellent condition, Vanadinite of this high quality is one of the best mineral values available today. The color is hard to appreciate on a computer, in person it is brilliant.
Epidote and Prehnite
stock #15.1-498
Sadiola Mine
Kayes Region, Mali
5.8 x 4.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $240
Pre Holiday 2017

A superb small cabinet Epidote and Prehnite specimen from the prolific find in Mali. Of the many specimens that have come out few have this bright luster, color and esthetics. The Prehnite ball is elegantly encased by the Epidote crystals that are in perfect condition. Far better than typical "mine run" quality. Due to the large recent production, this is an economical yet very choice specimen.
Smithsonite (Pink Cobaltoan)
stock #17.1-337
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
3.2 x 2.3 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $250
Pre Holiday 2017

Pink gemmy crystals of Cobaltoan Smithsonite in on a perfect condition thumbnail. From the great Tsumeb mine, this looks better in person, has the rich, lustrous color that is the most desiarable. The better Tsumeb pink Smithsonites are the worlds best, this small specimen show why.
Spessartine on Hyalite Opal and Quartz
stock #15.1-471
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
6.1 x 3.8 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Pre Holiday 2017

A very remarkable and attractive Tongbei Spessartine quite unlike others. This matrix is a Quartz crystal that is encased in a layer of Kaolin that is in turn covered by a hard jacket of Hyalite Opal. The Opal is densely studded with sharp Spessartine crystals that are deep red and lustrous. Tongbei was at one time producing many fine specimens but is now exhausted with very little if any new production, now a classic location. The Garnets are choice and in fine condition, the form and contrasts make a nice display.
Cuprosklodowskite with Kasolite, Sklodowskite etc
stock #8.AE-869
Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Western area
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.5 x 4.4 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $675
Pre Holiday 2017

Perhaps the most beautiful and richly colored U mineral, Cuprosklodowskite from the Musonoi mine is revered by collectors, a "must have" specie. This specimen is quite fine, well crystallized with a dense mass of brilliant green needles protruding from a shallow vug. Several other rare minerals are also present including bright yellow Kasolite in balls and slender crystals. Except for this find in the Congo some decades ago these rare minerals are usually far from esthetic. This specimen is from that older era and quite a bit above average. Now very uncommon on the market in such quality.
Amethyst -
stock #15.1-520
Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola
Mpumalanga, South Africa
7.3 x 5.6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
new june 17

From the find 3 years ago in the almost unpronounceable locale of Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola. This is the sought after deep purple color that has not been found in more recent digging there. This small cabinet piece has excellent form and color. "Cactus" habit quartz are usually much more pale or are not even purple. The royal purple this piece has is the most uncommon and most desired. In fine undamaged condition,
