Pyromorphite - Arsenian classic habit
stock #17.1-475
Bunkerhill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
4 x 2.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)

This is the wet-look luster that is most desirable from Bunker Hill and the melted type form of the Hexagonal crystals. An esthetic arrangement with well defined three dimensional form. The color is the distinctive bright orange best known from this locale. An American classic.
Rhodochrosite with Calcite
stock #A-10-845
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
5.7 x 4.5 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $145


An old (1960s vintage) and unusual Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia. The Rhodos are bright pink and very gemmy rhombs in small clusters and rosettes. A few white Calcites in rice grain form are sprinkled in and the whole rests on a contrasting greenish matrix that is a cast after what probably were earlier Calcite crystals. In fine condition.
HOLD Hemimorphite -fine crystal bundles
stock #HOLD 0232-JM-2641
Potosi Mine, Santa Eulaia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
9.4 x 7 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400


A stunning plate of freestanding Hemimorphite crystal bundles with super bright luster and a hint of pink color in some. From the John Marshall collection, this was a well chosen top quality piece when this find was made (1989) and it is still an outstanding specimen. No damage and very three dimensional. There are a few prismatic crystals as well tucked between the larger bundles which are glass clear. Choice Mexican classic and an excellent Hemi from anyplace.
SOLD Prehnite - rare purple crystals
stock #SOLD Alec 23-026
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.5 x 2.2 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


Incredibly rare habit and color for this common mineral, unique to a single find at the Jeffrey Quarry. The terminations of these elongated crystals is a deep purple while the prism faces are a lighter violet hue. One crystal show the especially rare stepped termination. In fine condition for one of these delicate specimens, there is an area on the back that to the naked eye can look like damage but under good magnification shows a fully crystallized undamaged contact. Choice and just about impossible to find in any quality, this is an especially nice thumbnail.
Weloganite -single crystal
stock #15.1-049
Francon Quarry - Montreal
Quebec, Canada
2 x 1.1 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280


A complete crystal with textbook perfect form and doubly terminated as well. From the classic locality at the long closed Francon Quarry. In perfect condition with sharp lustrous striations on the faces. Well above average in esthetics, this rare mineral that has only been found in a few locations worldwide, but only this find produced good displayable crystals. A very distinctive habit and a modern classic.
SOLD Vesuvianite - Rare purple crystals with red tips
stock #SOLD Alec 16-149
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.5 x 2.2 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A brilliant thumbnail with exceptional, intense color. In fine condition this has the rarest violet color with some deep purple that becomes bright magenta red at the terminations. Although Vesuvianite has been found all over the world this rich color combo was only found in just one small zone decades ago at the Jeffrey Quarry. This mine once produced an amazing rainbow of Vesuvianite colors which are considered the worlds best, but it is now closed forever. This is the rarest color and is almost never seen on the market.
Thomsonite -CA
stock #Alec 6-075
Shakur Quarry - Nasik District
Maharashtra, India
5.9 x 5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $160


Most Thomsonite is not especially esthetic or display worthy unless it has form and color like this. Here is a pretty pink ball with sparkling micro crystals all over the surface. The matrix is a light green hue making a nice contrast. This is in fine condition from a small pocket found in 2011.
Rhodochrosite - gem Scalenohedral
stock #17.1-327
Hotazel Mine, Kalahari Mg Field
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2.2 x 1.9 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $825


Superb color and unusual variation on form, this is a rich thumbnail of glass clear brilliant Rhodo. The good South African Rhodochrosites have not been found for some time and they are considered some of the greatest ever discovered. This shows why these are so coveted, the color is incredibly intense. The crystals are dominantly scalenohedral but have some variations that are quite a bit more complex. An older specimen this is fine condition as seen. All of the crystals are fully transparent, much more so than the photos show. Choice.
