Galena Pseudo after Pyromorphite -Classic locale
stock #0241-JM-331A
Wheal Hope, Perranzabuloe, St. Agnes District
Cornwall, England
2.8 x 2.3 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330


Classic Cornish thumbnail specimen of the very desirable Galena after Pyromorphite crystals from Wheal Hope. Small but distinct crystals of Pyromorphite have full changed to Galena but the form remains. Ex John Marshall collection, obtained by him before 1970. These Pseudomorphs are only known from a few spots in the world and all seem to have been found over a century ago. These are especially uncommon from Cornwall, and while to many people are just black and ugly, they are a prize to those who understand these things!
Chabazite- gemmy phacolite type twin
stock #18.1-229
Route 290 and 495 Interchange, Marlboro
Massachusetts, United States
1.7 x 1.4 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $110


Small thumbnail but with bright red color, transparent to translucent and with fine luster. From a one time find during the construction of an interstate junction, this was collected by the late Larry White in 1980 and was in his collection since. This was the example with the best red color and luster, the others were more pale or orange. The twinning is more evident on close examination and the Chabazite is typically flattened in habit. Choice and almost never available
Calcite- Complex twin
stock #18.1-230
Daye Iron Mine, Edong Mining District, Huangshi Prefecture
Hubei, China
7.4 x 5.4 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


From the Daye mining area in 2002 before it became a well known mineral locality, this Calcite has a form unlike later finds. The Calcite is almost 6 CM in diameter, transparent (more so than the photos show) and with glassy luster. Some contacts are noted on the back (see the last photo of the back) but overall as seen it is in very fine condition damagewise. Displays well from several angles, we obtained this on one of of earliest trips to China and until recently it was in my personal collection.
Chalcopyrite with Galena, Pyrite and Calcite
stock #16.1-684
Rodna, Rodna Mountains
Bistrita-Nasaud County, Romania
8.9 x 6.4 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $225


From an older European collection, these are well formed, fine Chalcopyrites with some complex Galena all dusted with Calcites. The original label lists this as from Rodna, but it is unlike any other example we have seen from the locale, and unlike any of the better known Romanian localities (Cavnic, Turt etc). As often happens with old collections we can not always fully trust the locality information, but if correct this is especially fine for the locality and a significant older Roumanian piece with character. Undamaged. The Chalcopyrites reach 2.6 CM and are textbook sharp.
Galena with Chalcopyrite and Dolomite
stock #18.1-231
Brushy Creek Mine, Greely, Viburnum Trend District, Reynolds County
Missouri, United States
5.9 x 4.6 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $220


Bright silver color Galena in elongated cube form sits on a finger of matrix covered with small Dolomite and Chalcopyrite crystals. This is the sort of Galena that has made the Brushy Creek locality famous, with extra bright luster, attractive form and in fine undamaged condition. Any suite of lead minerals will have at least one good specimen. These are contemporary classics, still very affordable and unlike the look of Galena from any other area in the world.
Sphalerite- gem variety Cleiophane
stock #18.AX-27-101
Ninth of September mine, Madan, Rhodope Mountains
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
7.9 x 5.5 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


Sharp and glasslike gem Sphalerite crystals contrast with the white matrix in an esthetic combination. The Sphalerites are a dark yellow-green best seen when under strong light. The luster is brilliant. From the Madan area of Bulgaria, this zone has produced some extraordinary Sphalerites (and Galenas as well) on occasion. This piece is from a few years ago out of one incredible pocket. Far better than typical specimen with fine 3 dimensional esthetics, there is no damage at all.
Barite- delicate blue bladed
stock #18-AX-32-080
Jebel Ouichane, Beni Bou Ifrour, Nador
Oriental Region, Morocco
6 x 4.4 x 3.7CM (cabinet)
price: $775


For the past 2 years there have been some very attractive blue Barites coming from Jebel Ouichane, these have been big news in the mineral world. However, most are quite damaged and those with great condition and fine esthetics are quite prized. This piece is very fine, has minimal minor edge chipping (very rare) and the form, color and presentation are excellent. A very strong piece with a good balance of form and condition. Selected from hundreds of good pieces as a top example. We have several others in this size range at lower prices but for display quality this is far better and more impressive in person.
Rhodonite - Gemmy red crystals with Calcite
stock #18.1-232
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
3.2 x 2.9 x 2.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $750


Years ago the great Franklin NJ mines produced some exceptional fine Rhodonites, including the well known blocky opaque pink crystals that are now classics. Less common were the smaller gemmy red crystals like these that could even be faceted. Typically rounded edges, a bit of Calcite and a few specks of Franklinite are noted but the majority of this piece is pure Rhodonite. Several crystal habits are seen on this piece and it is very different from typical Franklin specimens we have handled. Ex Hitchings collection, this is a large thumbnail and could be made into 2 pieces if desired but is quite fine as is. No damage.
