Quartz included by Bismuthinite
stock #Alec-15-048
Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang
Hunan, China
5.5 x 2.9 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $290


A strange but remarkable specimen of Bismuthinite crystals included in clear Quartz prisms. Ex Shields Flynn collection which he obtained from Bert Ottens. The Shangbao mine is best known for world class Fluorites which were occasionally included by Bismuthinite. Quartz with Bismuthinite is however much rarer. This is a choice example because the needles are rather thick and the Quartz is very clear so these are easy to see well. Collected in 2003 I do not think any of these have been found for at least a decade.
Calcite with Pyrite and Pyrrhotite
stock #16.1-706
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
8.2 x 6.5 x 4.6 CM (cabinet /museum)
price: $690


Colorful and with a flowerlike form, this is an excellent Calcite from the famed Cavnic mine of Romania. Sharp scalenohedral crystals radiating in a spherical mass have been coated with small Pyrite crystals and have internal coloring perhaps from Hematite. The back of the mass is broken where it was removed but the front display side is quite fine and undamaged. Lots of impact and far better in person.
Grossular- with minor Diopside
stock #Alec-10-947
York River Skarn, Bancroft, Hastings County
Ontario, Canada
4.7 x 3.6 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $180


A main large orange-red Garnet (3.3 CM) with a few smaller crystals and green Diopside from this important Skarn. The major crystal is sharp, lustrous, translucent larger and sharper than others I have seen from York River. The smaller crystals are gemmy in areas. Contacts and breaks are on the back and edge where this was attached, but that is not seen on the the display side which is in fine condition. Collected in the 1960s, formerly in the William Haladyz collection.
Diopside -Gem crystals, classic locale
stock #Alec-35-034
Calvin Mitchell Prospect, Dekalb, St Lawrence County
New York, United States
5.7 x 4.7 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $320


A spray of gemmy green Diopside crystals (to 1.4 CM) stand on a matrix of Quartz from famed Dekalb, NY locale. The Diopsides are undamaged and glassy, terminated and a few show fibrous areas inside. Not often available and usually quite expensive.
Rosasite on Malachite ps. after Azurite crystals
stock #17.1-697
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
3.6 x 2.6 x 2.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $550


One of the more famed Pseudomorphs from Tsumeb is Rosasite replacing Malachite that has replaces Azurite crystals. This is an excellent example with a thin outer zone of Rosasite that has several small Calcite rhombs sprinkled on the surface. Attractive and now quite uncommon, the main crystal is in perfect condition. Other crystals on the back and bottom side are broken showing the malachite core, does not affect display. A big thumbnail with a lot of good visual impact.
Fluorite in Dolomite cast
stock #17.1-696-17a
Walworth Quarry - Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.1 x 2.8 x 1.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $160


A single gem-clear cube of Walworth Fluorite is perched perfectly inside a thin Dolomite cast. Walworth Fluorites are classic but not often available as few are found each year. This is even more unusual as the thin shell or "cup" is an uncommon matrix composed of tiny Dolomte crystals. The Fluorite is clean, undamaged and colorless. This could trim to thumbnail size if desired.
Pyrargyrite on Quartz with Dolomite, Pyrite, Galena etc.
stock #15.1-920-(SM5320)
Guanajuato, Municipio de Guanajuato
Guanajuato, Mexico
4.5 x 3.2 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $300


Clusters of dark ruby silver crystals with very good form stand out well from the contrasting matrix. In fine condition this could trim out to thumbnail size if desired but it looks fine as is. Ex Charles M. Noll collection, these crystals are quite dark as is typical at this region, and not translucent but in strong light shows bits of red color.
Fluorite on Lollingite
stock #A-11-017
Huanggang Mine, Chifeng Prefecture
Inner Mongolia Region, China
3.6 x 3.2 x 1.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $280


Well-formed transparent Fluorite on crystalline blades of Lollingite in an attractive arrangement. A fine example from the Inner Mongolian finds at the Huanggang Mine. The display surface is perfect and undamaged, the back of the Fluorite has a clean geometric contact but is undamaged. The Lollingite from here is certainly some of the best ever found, the addition of fine Fluorite makes this miniature especially attractive.
