Zircon- classic Colorado find
stock #15.1-703
North Cheyenne Canyon, El Paso County
Colorado, United States
3.4 x 2.6 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $360
new june 17

A very sharp group of Zircon crystals with a great history. Collected in Cheyenne Canyon in 1945 by the late Warren Johansson in the last weeks before he was drafted. While awaiting his call up, Warren went on a series of legendary bucket list mineral hunting trips. He had been clued in by Clarence Coil that, long ago, some Zircons had been found in that area but the locale was lost. Warren located this spot and dug several nice pieces, some of the best ever found. This specimen was one of Warrens favorites and was pictured for his memoir. Warren passed in 2015 still active collecting in his 90s. This specimen is a fine Colorado classic from a great field collector.
Fluorite- Ice cube habit on Calcite etc.
stock #17.1-AX14-335
Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
4.8 x 4.4 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $460
new june 17

Looking like partially melted ice cubes these are ultra clear habit Fluorites found at Dalngorsk more the 15 years ago. In excellent condition the Fluorites up to 2 CM are nicely contrasted with the matrix. It is difficult to photograph the gem clear perfection, the matrix is perfectly seen right through the crystals. Some very clear Fluorites still come out of this locale, but none are as clear as those from this older find, now a modern classic discovery. Super glasslike luster with no signs of frosting on the faces, even better in person.
Bournonite - very fine large crystals
stock #17.1-AX27-191
Machocamarco Mine, Cornelio Saavreda Province
Potosi, Bolivia
5 x 4.8 x 4 CM (miniature)
price: $2200
new june 17

A killer Potosi Bournonite with large, perfect crystals showing classic form. Complete all around, a perfect floater with no matrix, just big metallic Bournonites in fine condition. The largest crystal is a sizable 3.8 CM and all the crystals have a gleaming gunmetal luster. This is from the remarkable find in 2007-8 which had the very best Bournonites ever seen from Bolivia and some of the best ever found on the planet. This is very much a top percentile specimen from that discovery, a true top shelf piece.
Cerussite- Chromian, reticulated twins
stock #17.1-AX-24-521
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi, China
5.8 x 3.8 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450
new june 17

A perfect complex twin of Cerussite with the zoned yellow color of the Chromian variety from Daoping. There are also several pink zones that make a nice color contrast. Fine Cerussites at this locale were always very rare and often overshadowed by the great finds of Pyromorphites and Plumbogummites. However the good ones like this are impressive. This would be a fine Cerussite from any locale and is in excellent condition, displayable on all sides, a true floater and with well above average luster. No naked eye visible damage at all, with 20X magnification I find one very small bruise, which is incredible for the delicate and sensitive mineral. This shows well the classic sixling twinning and overall reticulation. Fine form, color and condition.
Mimetite w. Arsentsumebite
stock #17.1-AX-12-012
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
5.2 x 3.8 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $450
new june 17

Sprays of yellow radiating Mimetites up to 3 CM long on contrasting nmatrix in an esthetic array. This is a complex specimen with several display angles and a vug with Mimetites partly coated with micro Arsentumebites. In good condition overall, some micro damage can be found with magnification but still displays very well. A really nice specimen of accicular Tsumeb Mimetite.

A Cornish Chalcopyrite that is well crystallized and with good luster. Sharp trigons to 1.7 CM across are scattered on a thin plate with stained Quartz crystals between each. Ex Huber collection (Austria), in good condition there is some Quartz or Calcite overgrowths on some Chalcopyrites, and Pyrite is present in the matrix.

A very fine plate of Cerussite crystals with minimal matrix from the great Daoping mine, which is world famed for great Pyromorphites. These crystals are in excellent undamaged condition and many are untwinned or are stacked vertically in parallel arrangements with is quite rare.

No more have been available for a few years now Cerussite are up to 2 CM long, translucent yellow and lustrous.
Topaz -Classic Imperial type
stock #17.1-158
Antonio Pereira Mine, Ouro Preto
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.1 x 1.5 x 1 CM (miniature)
price: $340
new june 17

A single Imperial Topaz crystal with traditional color and far above average clarity. In fine condition and mostly gem grade. The color is yellow-orange with a slight hint of red zoning. From the Antonio Pereira area of Ouro Preto, this locality has almost two centuries of history for Topaz finds. This has the most classic and distinctive look for the area but is considerably better than typical quality, form and color.
