stock #ALEC-15-068
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi, China
7 x 4.7 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
Winter 2016-17

An unusually well crystallized Axinite from China that host well perched doubly terminated quartz crystals for a nice contrast. Ex Shields Flynn collection, thois is older material from about 2004. The Nandan mines have mostly been shut down and were only producing good minerals for a few short years. The Axinites from the area are probably the best ever to come out of China. In excellent condition (few were not badly damaged) with the only real bruising at the outside edges. Very nice luster and three dimensional relief.

Big and lustrous with red highlights this is translucent to transparent on edges with a brilliant red when backlit. Crude but complete termination on both ends makes this an extra nice example. Better in person this is well above average, and not being found now.

Winter 2016-17

Fantastic form with a gem clear "cap" crystal on the termination of the older scalenohedron. In fine condition as seen with only very minor rub spots that are very hard to spot. Even better in person this shows with textbook perfection the habit that became famed from this old locale. Displays well from all sides. These old specimens still turn up from time to time, this one is far better than most.
Fluorite on Dolomite
stock #6.2-644
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan, China
6.8 x 5.9 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Winter 2016-17

Choice and very esthetic, old type of Fluorite in stepped, modified cubo-octahedral crystals perched on contrasting milky Dolomite. Dark purple phantoms are seen in the center of the main crystals where the glassy "windowpane" face looks into the clear interiors. From vintage 2002 finds at Shangbao, this habit has not been found for several years. In fine condition there is a small clean contact on the back corner of the smaller crystal but no damage.

Calvin Mitchell Prospect, Dekalb, St Lawrence County

Winter 2016-17

Fine and sharp gem clear Diopside crystals on a Diopside matrix in excellent condition. From the famed Dekalb classic location made famous in the 1800s, The largest crystal is 2.3 CM long and has fine transparency and a nice yellow-green color. This was collected by and in the collection of S. Alverson in the last good find over 4 decades ago. Since that pocket there have been no more with this clarity and glassy luster. Outstanding for the location and an esthetic piece as well!

Smithsonite -gemmy scalenohedral crystals
stock #14.1-058
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
7 x 6 x 2.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $1050
Winter 2016-17

Yellow-hued crystals of transparent Smithsonite up to 2.5 CM long are sticking out in all directions on this complex yet esthetic piece. In outstanding condition overall, there is one crystal with a broken termination that will be hidden on most logical display angles. All of the other crystals are quite perfect. Without analysis I am not sure if this should be called Cadmian Smithsonite as many yellow examples are labelled. Choice and attractive.
