Vesuvianite (deep purple variant)
stock #17.AL-502
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2 x 1.4 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $300
Winter 2016-17

Small but intense rich purple Vesuvianite with magenta and dark green areas. The color is deeper and more intense than the computer monitor can render well. The luster is glass like and the specimen clearly has two generations of growth. Some of the smaller crystals show hoppered terminations. The "matrix" is a blocky crystal of Vesuvianite that shows signs of being recrystallized as well. This is the most uncommon color found at Jeffrey and essentially unknown from any other locale.
Silver - Fine native crystals in
stock #Alec 19-161
New Nevada Mine, Cerro San Antonio, Batopilas
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.2 x 3.7 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $2850
Winter 2016-17

An extraordinary fine small cabinet specimen with exceptional form from Batopilas. For esthetics and delicacy of crystals, there is no other location like the Batopilas area of Mexico. This piece is very far above average and is in perfect condition. Individual leafy crystals over 3.3 CM tall show many sharp, fine treelike side growths in many habits. Far better in person and offering lots of display impact this is a choice modern classic.
Grossular with minor natrolite
stock #17.AL-504
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 3.3 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $240
Winter 2016-17

A good specimen of a type that is becoming hard to find and often very expensive. This has a nice presentation overall but has damage to some smaller crystals and with magnification more chipping is seen, so it is not for perfectionists. Good value for color, luster and contrast with the light matrix. Shows good isolation of the Garnets too. Far less expensive than an ultra perfect specimen but in normal display looks just as nice.
Papagoite in Quartz
stock #16.1-302
Messina Mine, Messina District
Limpopo Province, South Africa
4.7 x 3.6 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $680
Winter 2016-17

A sharp and attractive example of this scarce old find of Papagoite included quartz. The main 3.4 CM tall crystal is in excellent condition and the overall form is quite esthetic. We have not had an example with this quality for many years, they are just not often available, and fine examples are very scarce.
Anglesite with Arsentsumebite, Duftite
stock #16.1-300
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.5 x 2.5 x 3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $425
Winter 2016-17

A single crystal of Anglesite in the pointed habit that has had some dissolution pockets near the base that are now filled with crystallized Arsentsumebite and Mottramite. Nice color contrast and a pearly luster on the Anglesite add character. Some minor bruises exist at 10 magnificatrion these look like typical bruising but at 40X magnification it seems some of this is partly recrystallized so these are more likely semi-healed old in-situ damage or contacts. A nice piece with a rather uncommon association.
SOLD Cobaltoan Calcite
stock #SOLD 16.1-301
Agoudal Mine, Bou Azzer
Souss Massa Draa Region, Morocco
3.1 x 2.8 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
Winter 2016-17

Superb color and esthetic form in this small but eye-catching specimen. A supurb exampole of this very important find. The sharp. lustrous scalenohedral crystals radiate in all directions and are in fine condition. The color is even richer in person. This part of the Bou Azzer (Aghbar) is now flooded and shut down, it is said it can never re-open. Modern classics and in this quality rare, destined to appreciate.
Legrandite
stock #16.1-304
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.9 x 3.1 x 2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $690


Well exposed vug filled with perfect yellow acicular form Legrandites. Unlike many pieces these are free standing crystals not laying in the matrix. A choice piece with strong esthetics and color. Small globs of greenish Adamite are present as well, this is an older specimen dating back to the earliest finds at Ojuela.
Epidote well crystallized , with Actinolite
stock #16.1-284
Ore Hill mine, Warren, Grafton Co.
New Hampshire, United States
6.7 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
Winter 2016-17

Lustrous oil-green prisms are well presented on the contrasting Actinolite. From a less well known Northeastern US locality (the Ore Hill mine, Warren, NH) Ex Bob Whitmore collection, the condition is excellent.Choice piece from an uncommon locale.
