Topaz on Clevelandite and Muscovite
stock #15.1-908
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
7.2 x 4.9 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Spring update

Sharp and perfect Topaz (4.4 CM across) with an unusual but very esthetic morphology. Glassy luster and esthetically exposed, this is a very choice piece that is far better in person. The Topaz presents with an elongated termination facing outwards and the form and presentation is not a typical one. Damage free and for a non-colorful specimen this is really different and eye-catching in a display.
Fluorite on Quartz (older Chinese)
stock #6.2-731
Xianghualing Tin Mine, Linwu County, Chenzhou
Hunan, China
6.9 x 5.7 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
Spring update

Beautiful light green transparent Fluorite crystals in modified Cube-Octahedral forms perched on a matrix of Massive Fluorite and Quartz crystals. Exceptional in person, a very choice and quite unusual habit, no longer seen for sale. The Quartz has an Iron tinge and so adds a nice color contrast. Displays well from several angles. The Xianghauling mines produced just a few of this habit in 2004-5. We obtained several at the mine and sold them all long ago, including this one that has come back in a collection purchase. The mine is non producing for many years now.
Quartz on Rhodochrosite on Calcite
stock #18.AX-10-482
Los Remidios Mine, Level 4, Taxco
Guerrero, Mexico
10.8 x 7.1 x 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Spring update

A bright, sparkling old Mexican Rhodo with Scalenohedra that are covered by clear tiny quartz crystals that add a bright luster. The rich pink color of the Rhodocrosite is clearly seen through the druzy Quartz. Some typical sulfides make up the rest of the matrix, the dark colors adding contrast. In very good condition, a few old breaks are noted and seem at least partly revealed, however as seen this is still a very fine display piece.
Quartz- Tabular Faden habit
stock # 18.1-AL-25-030
Waziristan Ophiolite, North Waziristan
FATA Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan
5.3 x 2.4 x .4 CM (cabinet)
price: $150
Spring update

A perfect "floater" that is crystallized all around and is remarkable, in perfect undamaged condition. From the finds in 2014 in Waziristan that produced some of the best Fadens ever found. This is a textbook example, fully transparent with bright luster and sharp edges. The Faden or string inside is distinct, bright and clear see from any angle. We have seen and handled many from these finds, undamaged floaters with such sharp details were very few.
Grossular - two colors
stock #18.1-128
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.3 x 2.3 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $175
Spring update

A thin plate of matrix hosts two generations of sharp, gem Grossular. The larger crystals are the well known orange hue but the smaller crystals are colorless to light pink. A nice and uncommon contrast. This is in fine condition, no damage seen at 10X magnification. Excellent glassy luster, sharp striations and quite three dimensional.
Copper-Fine Spinel twins, Herringbone crystals
stock #18.1-117
Phoenix Mine, Phoenix, Keweenaw County
Michigan, United States
5.9 x 2.6 x .7 CM (cabinet)
price: $500
Spring update

Wonderful esthetics! Slender wires in branches holding spinel twinned Copper crystals in Herringbone arrays. A very old specimen from the famed Phoenix mine, in perfect condition. A superb, textbook example of these habits that is much more delicate than most Phoenix specimens. Under magnification it seems a small dab of Silver is present as well as a small modified cube. It is remarkable that this piece has remained intact.
Fluorite- Modified cubes included by Foitite
stock #18.1-110
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo region, Namibia
3.2 x 2.8 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $150
Spring update

A cluster of "melted look" transparent Fluorites are aligned in an epitaxial arrangement. A close look shows these are filled with fibrous Foitite crystals that are in sprays and curved bundles. A few Foitite are seen on the exterior as well with the characteristic fibrous terminations. In fine condition and especially impressive with magnification.
Vesuvianite- Bicolor gem crystal
stock #17-alx-450
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.4 x .9 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $875
Spring update

A superb thumbnail crystal that has deep purple-red terminations on a yellow green prism. The color and luster ar top notch and this shows why the Vesuvianites of Jeffrey quarry are so treasured. Such colors simply have never been found anyplace else and even at Jeffrey, this color combination was very rare. A choice addition for a Jeffrey suite or any fine thumbnail collection. No damage and better in person.
