Diopside
stock #15.1-310
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
5.1 x .7 x .9 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
Fall 2015

An unusual and fine gem crystal from Pakistan that came out over 20 years ago. Ex Herb Obodda and Chris Amo collection, this is sharp, lustrous and clear dark green. An excellent Diopside from anyplace, and outstanding from Pakistan. In excellent condition damagewise, this needs good lighting to help show well the rich color and transparency, without it is very dark. Our photos use a small amount of backlight to help show the clarity. This has the best luster, color and overall condition of any I have seen from here.
Inesite, Calcite & Quartz
stock #ALEC-15-276
Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper Mine), Edong District, Daye County, Huangs
Hubei, China
6.2 x 3.3 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
Fall 2015

A sizable red to pink "bowtie" spray of well formed crystals is nicely perched on Calcite crystals. From the collection of Shields Flynn and supplied by Bert Ottens, this is a way above average quality Inesite from the great finds in 2002. The main spray is 4.1 CM tall which is unusually big, and the condition is excellent with no visible damage. This location was once quite prolific but we have seen nothing in the past few years. A choice specimen of a modern classic.
Calcite on Dolomite
stock #ALEC-17-1072
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
5.5 4.3 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $65
Fall 2015

Very cute, affordable and in good condition from the Benchmark quarry collected by Bill Hladysz many years ago. Three individual Calcite prisms are perched on a crystallized Dolomite matrix.
Calcite on Marcasite w. Dolomite
stock #ALEC-17-1074
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
4.8 x 3.1 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $45
Fall 2015

Very cute, affordable and in good condition from the Benchmark quarry collected by Bill Hladysz many years ago. A single Calcite prism is perched on a Dolomite and Marcasite matrix with a few micro Pyrites as well. These are modern NY classic specimens.
Calcite w. Marcasite & Dolomite
stock #ALEC-17-1073
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
4.7 x 3.2 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $95
Fall 2015

Amber colored Calcite crystals are prominently perched on a crystallized Dolomite matrix. In fine condition with rich color and above average clarity, this was collected by Bill Hladysz many years ago. The Benchmark quarry is now something of a modern NY state classic locality. Affordable and pretty.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-509
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 2.8 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $320
Fall 2015

Rich bright purple to pinkish Vesuvianite in fine condition. From the great Jeffrey mine which has produced the worlds best and most colorful of the specie, this is a very attractive small miniature. The backside also displays well but has a more greenish color (as these are bi-color crystals). Fine luster and a sharp series of terminations with no visible damage. A very good value this quality is getting hard to find now that the mine is closed forever.
Apatite (CaF) / Fluorapatite
stock #15.1-465
Megiliggar Rocks Breage, Mount's Bay Dist.
Cornwall, England
1.8 x .3 x .3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $340
Fall 2015

Gem clear crystal in fine condition from this classic Cornish location. The crystal includes a crude but distinct internal "helix" pattern which adds considerable interest. A fine small specimen with delicate pale blue color and glassy luster.
Kaolinite pseudo after Orthoclase (Carlsbad twin)
stock #13.1-319
St. Austell District
Cornwall, England
5.6 x 3.6 x 1 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Fall 2015

An old Cornish classic, this pseudomorph is a complete and sharp replacement of the original twinned Feldspar. No damage or missing areas, this is a perfect floater. Textbook form much like a crystal model. Sometimes called "pig's ears" these are not "beauty" type display minerals but they are distinctive and unique to these old finds. Not many turn up for sale, this one is the best and sharpest example we have seen available.
