SOLD Eudialite (Eudialyte) well-defined crystals
stock #SOLD 16.1-659
Naujakasik (Naajakasik), Tunulliarfik Fjord (Tunugdliarfik), Ilímaussaq
Kujalleq, Greenland
6.5 x 6 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Winter 2016-17

Very large and with deep red color the largest of these crystals is 2.7 CM and well exposed. Eudialite is a rather uncommon mineral not seen in many collections even though it can form in very good crystals as seen here. This locality is in the same area as the type locality and produced some nice specimens many years ago. This is an older piece ex Vrzal collection. The main crystal has some minor edge chipping but is overall in exceptional condition for the size, about as good as can be found.
Quartz (alpine smokey, faden-like)
stock #A-26-002
La Lauziere Massif, Savoie
Rhone-Alpes, France
4.7 x 3 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Winter 2016-17

A very odd old French Quartz specimen ex Gilles Emringer collection. The light brown Smokey quartz in clear and colorless at the tips and outer edges but the core is composed of thousands of tiny bubbles like a froth that have a golden brown hue. Previous label calls this a Fadden and it has the right habit to be one, but since I can not find the internal string we are calling this Fadden-like as it seems not to be a true fadden. On the backside is a zone of deeply etched tiny crystals that look like either Bertrandite or Phenakite which both occur on the massif. In perfect, undamaged condition and quite a pretty alpine Quartz that is really different.
Barite flowerlike clusters
stock #16.1-661
Rosiclare level, Minerva Mine #1, Minerva Oil Co, Cave-in-Rock district
Illinois, United States
5.8 x 3.9 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $290


Outstanding quality and esthetics with a pale blue color, this is attractive from every angle of view. The Barites were overshadowed by the great Fluorites from the mine and relatively few were collected, they are now scarce in any quality.
Andradite v. Demantoid with Quartz and Diopside
stock #13.1-372
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
Arusha Region, Tanzania
5.1 x 3.1 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $485
Winter 2016-17

A really cute, bright specimen covered in sharp, gem grade Demantoid Garnets offset by a Quartz crystal. Finds of these Garnets have been sporadic and very few have had this sculptural form, grown on a Diopside base. The garnets fully cover the matrix on all sides, the smallest are a yellow color and the largest as seen are the Demantoid green. In great condition, damage-free and very lustrous, this is much better in person.
Amethyst -flower form, included by rutile
stock #Alec-24-405
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
5.3 x 5.3 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $490
Winter 2016-17

Top rich purple color, fine form and in excellent condition, this is a very choice Karur flower. These radiating clusters of crystals are distinctive, and unlike "flowerlike" radiating groups found anyplace else, top pieces can have gem clear deep colored crystals and brilliant luster. This is one of that calibre. Few have such perfect condition and intense color, there is only one tiny spot of chipping on the backside, the front is fully perfect. In addition the crystals are rutilated, with magnification they are densely filled with red needles of Rutile. Several crystals show scepter forms or the rare hollow hexagonal cavity in the terminations. Very exotic, unusual and pretty specimen.
Serandite and Aegirine (rare form)
stock #A7-257-439A
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
6.9 x 2.6 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
Winter 2016-17

A delicate sculptural Serandite specimen with a delicate salmon color. Ex Larry White collection, this is composed of the uncommon bladelike habit crystals intergrown in parallel arrangement. Collected in 1980 by Ernie Schlicter, this is unlike most Serandite, the flat crystal form is very rare, and with the mine closed there are no more to be found. The spikelike crystal of Aegirine is a nice accent.
HOLD Hubnerite, Calcite
stock #HOLD Alec-15-235
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
10.8 x 5 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $975
Winter 2016-17

An especially fine, esthetic multi-specie specimen from Yaogangxian. The matrix is a complete, doubly terminated crystal of quartz that hosts a mass of bright gemmy Scheelites and masses of red-black Hubnerite crystals. As a crowning touch a perfect delicate pastel colored rose of Calcite is nicely perched. Excellent contrast and display impact. The Hubnerite is a rather rare specie from Yaogangxian (there was far more Ferberite found) and these are especially good. The smaller crystals are translucent and are quite redwith good light. The largest Hubnerites reach 3 CM. Formerly in the Shields Flynn collection, a great earlier vintage Chinese classic.
Amethyst -scepters, tessins and reverse scepter crystals
stock #ALEC_32-059
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
4.8 x 2.5 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Winter 2016-17

A killer miniature with outstanding form. From the Karur area comes all sorts of unusual quartz and this is a very fine example. The fingers of Amethyst are reaching up from a pale crystalline base that adds a nice contrast. The deep purple amethyst crystals are in several habits most are also rather crooked and twisted. The whole effect is almost like a gothic cathedral. Very clearly not a typical Indian specimen!
