Fluorapatite- Gemmy blue, doubly terminated
stock #Alec-30-037
Slyudyanka, Lake Baikal area
Irkutskaya Oblast, Prebaikalia, Russia
5.8 X 3.4 X 2.1 (cabinet)
price: $320
Spring 2017

A complete crystal of Apatite that is bright blue to blue-green, is transparent in places, and doubly terminated. No damage but there are some contacts and "melting" on one edge. Very glassy luster and really choice for this location. There are several areas that could be faceted but much of the interior has some veils and inclusions. Ex. Tom Fitzpatrick collection, collected over 20 years ago
Beryl var Aquamarine with Schorl
stock #7 AE-097
Erongo mountain, Usakos and Omaruru districts
Erongo region, Namibia
10.1 x 9 x 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $720
Spring 2017

A very fine well composed large cabinet specimen with perfect Aquamarine crystals to about 3.5 CM. The Beryls are nicely perched, have gem clear terminations and good color. The matrix provides a good contrast and specimen sits well for display. Choice example from the prolific Erongo mountains, this is above average for quality and quite affordable for such an esthetic piece.
Caledonite with Phosgenite, Leadhillite?
stock #17.1-140
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
2.8 x 2 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $260
Spring 2017

Bright blue complex Caledonite crystal nicely perched on a mix of lead secondary minerals. The contrast with the matrix sets the Caledonite off very well. A very good example from the final collecting at Rowley. The matrix is a complex mix of micro minerals, this includes Phosgenite and Leadhillite seems to be in several spots, but is not confirmed. A very nice Arizona thumbnail.
Kesterite with Mushingtonite on Muscovite
stock #Alec-15-168
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.8 x 4.7 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $680
Spring 2017

Textbook perfect crystals of the rare mineral Kesterite that are coated with green Mushingtonite and perched on a Muscovite matrix. From the prolific locality of Mt Xuebaoding, this is a particularly fine specimen. The crystals reach 1 CM and are undamaged, complete and have some distinct twinning. This area has produced the best Kesterites ever found, and that zone of mining is now closed, there have not been new specimens for a few years and may never again be produced. A modern Chinese classic.
Spessartine on Smoky Quartz
stock #15.1-1030 (SM46660)
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
7.7 x 5.5 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Spring 2017

An impressive specimen far beyond average with very large Spessartine of deep red- orange color perched on dark Quartz. Strongly esthetic and with a eye catching architecture. The largest Garnets are over 1.1 CM and in fine condition. Some contacts and very minor chipping mostly just on the backside. Ex Charles Noll collection, this quality of Garnet is no longer being found.
Quartz with Fluorite
stock #16.1-720
Orange River, Warmbad, Karasburg Dist.
Karas Region, Namibia
4.9 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Spring 2017

Yellow milky Quartz prism with sharp yellow cubes of Fluorite along an edge. A choice and pretty Orange River specimen formerly in the Heini Saultau collection. Unusual for the association and colors, this is very different from typical Quartz from this locale. The main Quartz and Fluorites are clean, undamaged. Cute and choice
Amethyst
stock #17.1-102
Piedras Parado, Las Vigas
Veracruz, Mexico
6.7 x 3.9 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $460
Spring 2017

From the new (late 2016 early 2017) finds at Las Vigas, a gem clear, incredibly perfect and sharp cluster of Amethyst. Competition grade, the individual crystals reach 4.8 CM and are perfectly transparent, a few internal bubbles are also seen. This classic area has recently produced some superb specimens. This is that rare specimen perfect, undamaged and complete- no issues at all. Far better in person.
Quartz (red phantom) in Calcite
stock #16.1-723
Orange River, Warmbad, Karasburg Dist.
Karas Region, Namibia
4.7 x 4.2 x 4.1 CM (miniature)
price: $375
Spring 2017

A super odd but esthetic, brilliant red phantom Quartz nested in a cluster of Calcite scalenohedrons. Gemmy zoned red Quartz contrasts with the Calcite and is undamaged. Formerly in the Heini Saultau collection, this is a very differnt from anything we have seen from this legendary locale.
