Kukurt, Pamir Mts
Viloyati Mukhtori Gorno-Badakhsha, Tajikistan
3.2 x 1.6 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $360
Winter 2016-17

A rich deep purple gemmy Scapolite from the finds in the 1990s. The color is a bit hard to capture but in person it has a strong impact for size. One edge has some contacts that are not seen on display the overall condition is quite fine. These are now quite uncommon in the market, this one has a good gem interior and could facet a sizable stone or two.
Pyromorphite (Arsenian color)

Sweet and choice wet-look deep orange reddish Pyromorphite from the classic Bunker Hill. Distinct botryoidal crystals with clear faces can be easily seen. In fine condition with great luster the form is a little like a mushroom. Excellent toenail size with fine impact for the size.
Cassiterite & Stibnite (Bismuthinite?) on Quartz (rare association)
stock #ALEC-15-279
Amo Mine, Ximeng
Yunnan, China
5.2 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Winter 2016-17

A bizzare association, well formed slightly translucent Cassiterites sitting on Quartz with a crude 5 CM Stibnite crystal along one edge. The question was recently asked if this is Stibnite or Bismuthinite, and we have not yet made an analysis. The Cassiterites have good luster and form, very three dimensional. Ex Shields Flynn collection, via Bert Ottens, I have never seen another of these. There is a matrix repair that is not visible.

stock #8.AE-955
Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
3.2 x 2.7 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Winter 2016-17

From the now classic finds at Brumado, a very well composed cluster of glassy deep green crystals. In fine condition with a few tiny flecks of adhering quartz otherwise this is all Uvite. Prior to these finds almost all known Uvite was black. There seems to be little to no new production now.

Winter 2016-17

An etched crystal of blue gemmy Aquamarine, this is also impressivly dichroic. Classic Beryl specimen from the Urals that is much better in person. Ex. University of Chicago collection this is etched and complexly crystallized on the front, top and sides. There is a separation crack on the back and underside that is not visible on display. The dichroic response is strong when rotating the backlit crystal changes from a pale greenish blue to a dark cerulian blue.

A bright, two sided plate that hosts several fine gem clear crystals. In excellent condition as seen, all the crystals are well formed and isolated. A small version of the The "front" has the uncommon white matrix of crystallized Prehnite that gives a fine contrast to the Garnets. Choice example that is a small version of the finest cabinet specimens that sell for huge sums.
