HOLD Galena (very old, fine classic specimen)
stock #HOLD 0426-JM-3318
Orzel Bialy (Bialy Szarlej,Bleischarley, Grube Starley) Bytom District
upper Silesia, Poland
7.4 x 6.2 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
Winter 2016-17

An exceptionally fine galena that was mined when Silesia was part of Germany. This locality is best known for Schalenblende specimens but few good Galenas are seen from these old mines. This one is the best I know of in any collection. Crystals reach 2.5 CM and are mostly very modified Octahedra. In excellent condition, with a great patina and presentation. A well traveled piece, six earlier labels and a catalog card document some of the long provenance. Previously in the collections of John Marshall, M. Chervet, F.W. Cassierer, A. Carion and others.
Fluorite -stairstep habit
stock #A7-111-44A
Melchor, Musquiz
Coahuila, Mexico
5.5 x 4.4 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $140
Winter 2016-17

A mass of colorless Fluorite fringed with dozens of aligned small cubes with color zoned edges. The smaller cubes are translucent to transparent and have a righ purple hue. In fine condition overall, strong magnification finds only a very few slight edge rubs, not visible by naked eye. This specimen is lit only from the front in the photos but with backlighting it really glows. Ex Larry White collection obtained in 1975. A pretty specimen that is better in person.

Sterling Mine, Ogdensburg, Sussex Co.
New Jersey, United States
4.7 x 3.2 x 2.3 CM (miniature)

Classic combo from Sterling Hill, well crystallized Willemites and Franklinite on Calcite. Vivid green fluorescence and overall good condition, the pink Calcite is especially rich. Ex Ralph Heitman and Robert Jenkins collections with labels.

Sar-e-Sang District, Koksha Valley
Badakshan, Afganistan
2.6 x 2.4 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $600
Winter 2016-17

A deep, intense purple, very lustrous Scapolite crystal from Badakhshan Afghanistan. Tranparent to translucent and in very good condition this is a particularly choice small gem crystal. Classic habit for these rare crystals from Badakhshan, which are world class for the specie.
Fluorite - water clear classic
stock #Alec-34-079
Walworth Quarry - Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
2.1 x 1.3 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $400
Winter 2016-17

An ultra clear, very sharp pale blue Walworth NY Fluorite thumbnail. In fine condition and far better in person, these gemmy Fluorites are coveted US classics. This example is well above average and despite the small size has a lot of display impact. A small amount of Dolomite matrix is seen perfectly through the Fluorite and looking like inclusions. Collected over a decade ago, a few are found each year in this working quarry, but most are never seen on the market.
Azurite -bladed crystals altering to Malachite
stock #16.1-091
Khanong open pit, Sepon Mine, Vilabouly District
Savannakhet Province, Laos
4.2 x 3.1 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $420
Winter 2016-17

A great new locality the Sepon mine in Laos has been producing a few unusual and very fine Azurites. This is a very distinctive specimen with electric blue bladed crystals standing free of the matrix. In perfect condition, some of the Azurites are zoned with a slight alteration to Malachite. Very lustrous and sharp, the matrix is a mix of malachite balls and spheres of slightly irridescent Goethite. An excellent, esthetic miniature.
Agate Ps after Aragonite
stock #15.1-1058- (SM598)
Rancho Coyamito, Sierra del Gallego, Mun. de Ahumada
Chihuahua, Mexico
10.1 x 7.6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Winter 2016-17

A really fine Pseudomorph with a purplish Agate (chalcedony) that has completely replaced a cluster of Aragonite crystals. The hexagonal form of the Aragonite is perfectly preserved. Esthetic, in fine condition damagewise and a a small bonus this is also a natural rattle since a hollow crystal has some trapped material inside. Great form and nice color too.
