Grossular (pink) w. Diopside
stock #16.1-AX-576
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.9 x 2.5 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Spring update

One of the rarest colors of Grossular from Jeffrey is pink, and especially desirable is on a contrasting green Diopside. Far above average size for the main crystal at 1.2 CM and gemmy. Sharp edges and bright luster make this especially attractive. There are some contacts and chips mostly on smaller crystals but these are not easily seen. This also keeps the cost far below the usual level for a Jeffrey pink. This could be trimmed to a very fine thumbnail if desired.
Fluorapatite -large etched crystal in Calcite
stock #16.1-1254
Slyudyanka, Lake Baikal area
Eastern Siberia, Russia
9.8 x 9.3 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100
Spring update

Complete and with great color, the larger Apatite is 8.5 CM tall, with wonderful etching. This is the best specimen I have seen of this sort, for size, color and esthetics, it is really striking. These Apatites have transparent areas and deep blue green hue. The "melted" look is typical from this region and often seem in Apatites in Metamorphic host rocks (Marble Skarns especially). As a display piece the luster, contrast with the matrix and unusual architecture gives this specimen a very fine appearance. Both of the prominent crystals are doubly terminated as well. Our notes mention a repair reattaching the large crystal, there is no damage at all and the repair seems well done.
Topaz with Cassiterite and Apatite- Vintage specimen
stock #15.1-987-SM-2690
Ehrenfriedersdorf, Erzgebirge
Saxony, Germany
7.3 x 6.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1200
Spring update

An old Saxony specimen with several lustrous Cassiterites to 2 CM mixed with a hundreds of small, gemmy Topaz crystals and Apatites as well. Ex Charles Noll Collection, with a very esthetic addition of what seems to be rich green Allophane encrusting both species. I have only seen one other similar old specimen (19th century vintage). Vintage label included. In very good condition, some minor chipping seen only with magnification. Crystallized on all sides.
Fadden Quartz -Tabular crystal
stock #18.1-AX-015
Waziristan Ophiolite, North Waziristan
FATA Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan
4.8 x 3.9 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Spring update

A perfectly transparent, sharp glassy flattened Quartz with a well defined Fadden (string) included in the middle. Choice piece from the best of the Waziristan finds. No damage, crystallized all around and a perfect textbook example of this odd, flattened morphology.
Manganocalcite- Pagoda Style
stock #18.1-AX_15-104
Manoshan Mine, Dongpo, Suxian District, Chenzoh area
Hunan, China
10 x 9.1 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
Spring update

Pagoda style calcite towers formed of stacked flat disklike rhombs. The color is a pale pink and the Calcite has a vivid red Fluorescence. Very sharp and undamaged on the display face, broken on the back underside where it was removed. An older specimen ex Shields Flynn collection, from a 2004 find. In this fine condition, these are very uncommon, and very esthetic in any sort of display.
Fluorite on Quartz with Pyrite, Bournonite
stock #18.1-AX-15-013
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
10.8 x 7.8 x 8.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
Spring update

Quartz crystals to 9.5 CM decorated with sparkling purple Fluorite and small Pyrites, Bournonites etc. Impressive and very attractive (better in person) this is in fine condition, an unusual yet very esthetic display piece from the great Yaoganxian mine. This locale has produce thousands of good specimens but undamaged Quartz of this size and quality were very rare. With the colorful presentation of the accessory minerals this becomes something really special
Quartz with Fuchsite Phantoms
stock #18-11-AX 186
Anovitra, Ambatofinandrahana
Fianarantsoa Province, Madagascar
8.8 x 6.3 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Spring update

Sharp and perfect clear terminations of Quartz crystals presenting distinct well-defined green phantoms. While Fushsite phantoms from this location have been found before, only one pocket had clear terminations and very bright phantoms near the tips that are so clearly seen. Outstanding in person, this is from that one find and is far above average quality. Nothing like it has been found since. Displays great from several angles, there are 5 crystals with green phantoms in the cluster and 3 without any. We have seen a few of these mislabeled as Papagoite and Ajoite inclusions, often at very high prices. This is however classic Fuchsite or chrome mica in the Quartz but a rare and attractive form.
Grossular on Prehnite
stock #18.1-129
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
1.7 x 1.5 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $4500
Spring update

An unbelievable killer "bonsai tree"! This small thumb from the great Jeffrey mine is unique. Perfect display and undamaged all around. The Garnets are the deep emerald green color that are called "Chrome Grossular" and are gem clear. The Trunk of the tree is a single complete Prehnite crystal of the elongated prismatic habit. We have handled quite a few bright green Grossular but have never even seen such an esthetic combination. Simply extraordinary for the locality and for the specie. Top notch competition level, really a once in a lifetime thumbnail.
