Colatina
Espirito Santo, Brazil

A classic form for Chrysoberyl showing an inverted V twin well exposed on matrix. From the finds in the 90's at Colatina, this is a sharp crystal in fine condition. Hard to find any of quality on the market now, this has textbook form. Perfect by naked eye, some micro contacting (mostly on the back side) is evident with magnification.

A fine Tsumeb specimen with sharp, clear Calcites growing on a bright contrasting green Duftite. The Duftite can be seen through the Calcites and the condition is excellent. The underlying matrix is a thin section of Dolomite cast which is itself a very interesting and quite desirable collectable. First rate esthetics.

Casapalca Mine, Casapalca, Huarochiri Province
Lima Department, Peru

Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
4.2 x 1.5 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380
Fall 2015

Clear, gemmy Apatite crystal with a very faint pinkish hue, that looks colorless in some lighting. This shows a fine internal central wisp with a helix like form. Sharp and glassy, this is from finds a little over a decade ago, there is no damage at all on the prism or termination, it is of course broken on the bottom where it was removed.
Elbaite on Microcline

Gillette Quarry, Haddam Neck
Connecticut, United States
4.9 x 4.5 x 1.8 CM (miniature)

A sweet miniature with a great form from the collection of Larry White. Classic locale, the Elbaite here is 2.3 CM long and has a clear green section one one end. Doubly terminated with one end rather crudely recrystallized. The Microcline plate provides a fine contrast. Choice.

stock #15.1-516
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
4.5 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $290

Sharp multi-stepped and transparent light purple cube of Fluorite perched on a dark Sphalerite matrix. From the Elmwood mine, a classic example that is pristine and very attractive. No damage seen and with incredible geometric steps. Esthetic yet affordable.
Epidote/Clinozoisite on Calcite scalenohedral
stock #ALEC-20-086
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.5 x 1.9 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Fall 2015

From what is commonly called Eden Mills, this is a very unusual combination. A single scalenohedron of Calcite hosts a lustrous Epidote crystal and sprays of clear Natrolite crystals as well. In good condition overall, the Epidote is broken on one end but fine otherwise, good magnifications reveals chipping on the Natrolites but is not naked-eye visible.
