Grossular Var Hessonite w. Clinoclore etc.
stock #17.1-003
Monte Argentea, Arenzana, Genoa
Liguria, Italy
4.9 x 4.2 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Pre Holiday 2017

A very good matrix Garnet specimen with the classic style of Piedmont region Grossular. The crystals are sharp and translucent- a deep red when backlit but with normal lighting (as in these photos) typically look darker, almost black. In excellent condition a very good locality piece with bright luster.
Scheelite on Quartz
stock #17.1-AXA-30-064
Skardu District
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
6.4 x 4.4 x 3.5 (cabinet)
price: $720
Pre Holiday 2017

A choice specimen with a single doubly terminated Scheelite nicely perched on contrasting clear Quartz crystals. The Scheelite is quite sharp, gemmy and richly colored. A few small Quartz at the edges are broken but the Scheelite and most Quartz are in perfect condition damage wise. This is from a find in Pakistan over 5 years ago that was briefly big mineral news. The find was small and the specimens have all disappeared. The Scheelte is very well presented- it sits well up on the matrix and has excellent contrast. Even better in person.
Sphalerite and Pyrite
stock #A-10-908
Nanisivik Mine, Nanisivik, Baffin Island
Nunavut Territory, Canada
5.4 x 4.5 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $185
Pre Holiday 2017

A well formed specimen of both Sphalerite and Pyrite from a location not seen very often but has produced some fine things like this. Great three dimensional structure and separation of individual crystals, this is as good an example as I have ever seen from this remote locale. In very good condition, the pyrite are in several habits and forms while the Sphalerites reach up to 2 CM and have nice rounded faces. A really nice small cabinet piece.
Legrandite w. Smithsonite etc.
stock #A-10-656
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.2 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
Pre Holiday 2017

Gem clear bright yellow crystals of the Legrandite in several vugs on a Gossan matrix. A sprinkling of slender white Smithsonite crystals are also in some of the vugs as well, along with micro crystals that I can not identify. Many Legrandite crystals are perfect, undamaged and highly lustrous, but this is not a specimen for perfectionists since there are also some broken crystals in a few areas. For such a delicate mineral the condition overall is incredible, especially since some crystals protrude outside the protective vugs. Displays nicely but could be trimmed to make top notch thumbnail(s) if desired. As a rule these older Legrandites are very expensive even with some damage, this one is quite reasonable.
Quartz v. Amethyst -
stock #A 32-053
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
8 x 6.8 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1500
Pre Holiday 2017

An incredibly formed Quartz- a "mushroom cap" style Amethyst on a contrasting matrix (this is not a scepter but more like an umbrella). In outstanding condition with great form and color, this is a very rare habit, I have only seen one other specimen. The Karur diggings have occasionally produced some exotic Quartz and this is a great example of "exotic". Below the fringe line of the cap a few tiny single crystals some sceptered protrude like little fingers. Complex parallel and stacked crystals in radial form join at the peak of the cap in a crude termination of sorts. Even the matrix is unusual, a mix of small crystals of Calcite, Quartz, Albite, Clinoclore etc that is much like some Alpine matrixes. A very special addition for any fine Quartz suite.
Grossular- transparent gem crystals
stock #17.AL-481
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.2 x 2.6 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1350
Pre Holiday 2017

A killer miniature of absolutely transparent bright gem Grossular from the Jeffrey mine. When the mine was running, there were many different habits, colors and associations of Garnet found, usually in small zones that were never repeated. Over the years many habits have become especially desirable to collectors and this habit is one of them. This has rich red-orange color with good crystal separation, brilliant luster and impeccable transparency. Overall the arrangement of the Grossular is esthetic and the whole displays well from all sides. No damage, an esthetic example for the specie from the worlds greatest Grossular locale.
Fizelyite w. Semseyite etc Type Locality
stock #16.1-668
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
5.8 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Pre Holiday 2017

An unusually fine, rich and even attractive specimen of well crystallized Fizelyite. A rare Silver and Lead sulfosalt that is most often a "black ugly", this specimen is quite appealing. This has very bright luster and sharp form, dense crystal coverage and is associated with some fans of Semsyite on a Sulphide matrix. From the old Finds at Herja / Baia Mare, Romania which is they type locality for the specie. Hard to fine in good specimens this is far above average for quality and condition.
Stilbite on Prehnite
stock #15.1-495
Sadiola Mine
Kayes Region, Mali
7.3 x 3.5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
Pre Holiday 2017

A slender fingerlike growth of green prehnite that is studded with pale yellow Stilbite crystals. In undamaged condition this displays well on all sides. This is from the discoveries in Mali that have produced a lot of good Epidote, but such very fine stilbite /Prehnite specimens are far more rare. This was selected from several hundred specimens as an especially esthetic piece.
