stock #17.1-169
Weishan Co, Dali Prefecture
Yunnan, China
5.1 x 2.2 x 1.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $380
new june 17

Deep purple color Flourite cubes in a chain arrangement. From the recent find of stacked or stalactitic Fluorites which had originally formed over Stibnite crystals that no longer present. Some edges have an epitaxial coating of Barite that makes a nice contrast. In fine condition and very esthetic. This was a very small find and few had this intense color.
Orthoclase- Carlsbad twin, type locale
stock #17.1-244
Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad)
Bohemia, Czech Republic
6.8 x 4.8 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
new june 17

From the original Karlsbad, this is a perfect Carlsbad twin of Orthoclase. The twin is a complete floater 360 degrees without comtact. There is a second twin perched in the center of the specimen, making this a twin-twin to coin a phrase. This habit got its name from early finds at Karlsbad and this is a textbook perfect example from an old Czech collection.
Bournonite on Quartz
stock #8.1-250
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
8.8 x 4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
new june 17

A lustrous Bournonite is perched on one end of a doubly-terminated Quartz crystal from Yaogangxian. Remarkably, the entire specimen is fully crystallized and complete on all sides, it is a floater. A modern classic specimen- vintage 2004, the great era of Yaogangxian production. The Bournonite has well defined crystal faces on the front side, however the back side is less distinct, more complex, yet still perfect and undamaged.
Elbaite with Lepidolite - multi color crystals
stock #Alec 30-050
Pederniera Claim, Sao Jose da Safira, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.8 x 5.7 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $920
new june 17

A profusion of Tourmalines with minimal matrix making a complex but esthetic array. The Elbaite crystals are a clear light blue grading to pink and red colors. The main crystals are all perfectly terminated but some of the smaller ones have damaged parts that are not easily noticed. The crystals reach 3.7 CM and are quite three dimensional. An older Pederneira specimen with a form and color palate that is not like more recent material. Choice.
Cobaltoan Smithsonite on Galena Stalactite
stock #15.1-345
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
8.3 x 3.9 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $890
new june 17

A fine and very unusual type of of Smithsonite specimen from Tsumeb. Ex John Schneider collection, this has light pink to violet transparent crystals of Smithsonite densely covering 3 parallel fingers or stalactites of Galena. In excellent condition with wonderful esthetics, this is a really weird but choice Tsumeb specimen.
Rosasite
stock #Alec 4-249
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4 x 4.1 x 2.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
new june 17

A free-form sculpture of velvety Rosasite from Ojuela. This seems to have formed over a gossan matrix most of which has been etched away leaving this botryoidal mass of Rosasite. Fine color, this is nearly all Rosasite not just a thin coating. From a find in 2012 that was one of the best pockets of Rosasite seen in decades, this is a very attractive piece in great condition.
Wulfenite on Calcite
stock #16.1-065
Jianshan mine (stone crack), Ruoqiang County, Bayin gholin prefecture
Xinjiang, China
9.2 x 4.3 x 1.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
new june 17

A thin plate of matrix hosts dozens of brilliant orange-red Wulfenites with a particularly bright luster. The contrast with the white matrix is excellent and the condition overall is very good, a few chipped crystals at the edges have to be mentioned, but the main central area is quite damage free. From the remarkable finds near Urumqi in Xinjiang. This specimen has not been damaged by cleaning in strong acids so the color and luster are well above average. A good value for such an esthetic piece.
Topaz on Clevelandite
stock #12.1-051
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit, Northern Areas, Pakistan
6.5 x 4.2 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)

A very clear gem Topaz with a slight sherry color perched on a Clevelandite matrix. The Topaz crystal has a number of internal bubbles and negative crystals, it is in excellent condition. Nice esthetics and form, this is all natural color, there has been no irradiation for enhancement. The high clarity lets you see the matrix clearly through the Topaz.
