Wulfenite with Mimetite crystals
stock #15.1-543
Chah Milleh Mine, Anarak Dist., Nain Co.
Esfahan Province, Iran
3.6 x 3.3 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $230
Fall 2015

A cute small example of the Orange Wulfenite with small balls of Mimetite from the Chah Milleh discovery. An exciting new find of Wulfenite that has similarities to both the Rowley and San Francisco Mines, but is also clearly different. Those mines had little balls of Mimetite, but this has sharp prismatic crystals that look a bit like the orange Bunker Hill Pyros. For any Wulfenite suite this locality is quite important. Micro sized chipping exists (as in nearly every piece) shown in the photos. As a result this has a far lower cost but still looks good. Several crystal habits of both Wulfenite and Mimetite are seen with magnification, but the naked eye display is quite nice too.
Fluorite on Sphalerite
stock #15.1-515
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.5 x 4.4 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $195
Fall 2015

A fine sharp transparent Fluorite cube on a mass of brown to reddish Sphalerite from the Elmwood mine. While this is a small specimen and the Fluorite is just 1.7 CM across, it has a perfection and form that make it stand out. Edge zoning of color and some complex corner growths are quite distinct on this crystal. Any good Elmwood Fluorites have begun to get more expensive recently as so few are found.
Apatite on Quartz
stock #15.1-342
Panasquieira Mines, Panasquiera Covilha
Castelo Branco District, Portugal
4.5 x 2 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $600
Fall 2015

A very choice piece, this is a glass clear quartz crystal hosting several purple gem Apatites. The quartz is perfectly terminated, overall sharp and impressive in person, in very fine condition. Strong magnification reveals some tiny Siderite crystals. The Apatites have some slight zonation and have top luster. Not a typical Panasqueira specimen, and far more esthetic than average.
Azurite w. Malachite
stock #ALEC-3-052
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
4 x 2.9 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $1450
Fall 2015

Esthetic Milpillas Azurite with a fine sharp, lustrous large main crystal nicely perched atop. From early finds vintage 2007, this displays great and the architecture is especially attractive. Milpillas is now famed as perhaps the greatest source of Azurites in history, which is saying a lot. There are many good pieces on the market and the prices vary from incredibly cheap to seven figures. Finding a fine yet affordable specimen that will stand out from the crowd is not easy. This is that sort of piece.
Fluorite and Spessartine w. Hyalite
stock #15.1-592
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
3.7 x 2.6 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Fall 2015

The Tongbei finds about 10 years ago produced a few excellent Fluorites in several colors and habits. When associated with Spessartine as is this example, it makes for nice esthetics. A good example here in fine condition, the Fluorite is an elongated octahedron and has clear zoning, slightly etched faces and is transparent.
Fluorapatite (Pink) with Albite
stock #15.1-586
La Marina Mine, Pauna
Boyaca, Colombia
1.8 x 1.4 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
Fall 2015

The Colombian pink Apatites from La Marina are very desirable but very hard to get in any quality. There have been no new finds for the past few years, and the La Marina mine is currently idle. This is an older piece from the 2003-4 era, and has good color. Some of the later Apatites were found to fade and became colorless, but this is the older color-stable type. Minor edge wear is noted mostly on the backside, but overall in very good shape for one of these.
Quartz v. Amethyst unusual hoppered terminations.
stock #ALEC-32-051
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
6.1 x 5.7 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
May 2015

A very odd and pretty example of Amethyst crystals that instead of a typical pyramid termination have a hexagonal hole on the tips. Hard to photograph but impressive in person the walls of the hollow crystals are thin and transparent, showing complex growth structures and bright luster. In fine condition with no visible damage, a rare and special example from the Tamil Nadu area.
Fluorite
stock #15.1-529
Hilton Mine, Scardale
Cumbria, England
5.6 x 4.1 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
May 2015

A classic English Hinton Fluorite that shows the nice yellow color, glass clear crystals and has a nice contrast with the matrix of smaller Fluorites. In very good condition as seen and a piece that can be shown from several angles. These have gotten much harder to find in decent quality.
