Lazulite with Apatite and Wardite, Siderite, Quartz
stock #A-27-032
Rapid Creek, Dawson Mining District
Yukon Territory, Canada
9.3 x 4.9 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

A sizable and well composed plate fully covered with lustrous crystals. The Rapid Creek find of Lazulite is certainly the most gemmy and attractive crystals ever found of the specie, and this is a fine example. Sharp, glassy individual indigo prisms reach 1 CM. All are in a complex cluster sprinkled with white and colorless Apatite and golden gemmy Siderites. Lots of sparkle and pop, this is well better and larger than average, a good value from a modern classic.
Cobaltoan Calcite
stock #A-24-588
Aghbar Mine,Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Quarzazate Province
Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
6.6 x 4.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

A very bright color rounded knob that is also covered with rounded crystals of rich magenta-purple Co Calcite. The back and botton are the attachment points where this was broken from the bedrock but the display surface (front, top and sides) is in perfect condition and very impressive. The individual crystals have a bright wet-look luster and many are also two toned making a very eyecatching display. This locale has now been flooded and we do not expect to see the produced again. A future classic with the unique color that makes the best of these so desirable. Choice.
Hematite, Henritermierite, Andradite and Hausmannite
stock #17.1-047
Wessels Mine, Hotazel, Northern Kalahari Mn Fields
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
8.5 X 5.5 X 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1650
Pre Holiday 2017

A superb specimen from the esthetic point of view and a super rare example of the weird Garnet specie Henritermierite in tiny octahedral crystals. The bright red- orange Andradites garnets are also densely coating fine Hematite crystals with an esthetic contrast. In undamaged, perfect condition this displays impressively well. Fine Andradite coating Hematite was found in several pockets at Wessels years ago but not often so attractive or with the rare associate Henritermierite. A very fine specimen with several older labels from European collections.
Inesite with Barite
stock #A-14-326
N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
6.6 x 5.4 x 4.2 (cabinet)
price: $1150
Pre Holiday 2017

A dense mat of sharp pink to orange Inesite crystals covers most of a matrix which also hosts several clear Barite crystals. In excellent condition, from the classic NChwaning mine, this has fine luster and displays super well. The find of Inesite more than a decade ago has not been repeated, these rank as some of the best specimens ever found. This is a top percentile specimen, with strong display impact. Choice, and now very rare on the market.
Dioptase on Calcite
stock #13.1-318
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.3 x 3.5 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $220
Pre Holiday 2017

Deep green Dioptase crystals is selectively deposited on milky white Calcite rhombs in an attractive arrangement. The contrast is very distinctive and a classic Tsumeb habit. In fine condition, this is a choice yet affordable specimen from this iconic locale
Euchroite - Type locale
stock #17.1-283
Svatodusna deposit, Lubietova, Banska Bystrica Co.
Banska Bystrica Region, Slovakia
10.7 x 5.8 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $110
Pre Holiday 2017

An older, sizable matrix with a good covering of Euchroite crystals up to about 3mm. The condition is excellent, the color a deep green and a nice contrast to the matrix. From the type locale.
Pyromorphite
stock #17.1-474
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.6 x 2.9 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant yellow to light orange lustrous crystals of Pyromorphite from the famed Bunker Hill Mine. These are uncommon colors for Pyromorphite and this piece is in excellent condition. Several good display angles and with minimal matrix, this is a really nice small miniature from a classic, closed mine.
Chryoprase (unusual crystallized specimen with Pimelite/Nimite)
stock #16.1-682
Szklary (Glasendorff) Zabkowice, Zabkowice District
Lower Silesia, Poland
6.6 x 5.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Pre Holiday 2017

A very odd and attractive Chrysoprase specimen from the very old mines at Szklary, Poland. The matrix hosts very unusual but attractive clear quartz crystals with a mint green color caused by forming on top of the Chrysoprase. Szklary had both gem grade Chrysoprase and many Nickle minerals mined since the middle ages. We obtained a suite from that region in an old Czech collection, this notes it was obtained in 1980 the year the mine closed. We have never seen another one like this, the sparkling luster is not at all typical. Some areas of the earthy green minerals Pimelite and/or Nimite are noted as accessories, more typical for the area. A pretty quartz oddity.
