Cerussite with Malachite etc.
stock #14.1-223
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
5.4 x4.7 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Fall 2015

A finely crystallized Tsumeb specimen that has many twinned cogswheel form crystals well perched on the contrasting matrix. Treelike clusters of green Malachite are on the edges and the whole is quite three dimensional. Cerussite is a very delicate mineral usually with much chipping or other damage, these are in excellent condition even at 10X magnification. A good classic specimen.
Olivenite (Zn rich) with Malachite, Mottramite on Cuprite
stock #14.1-050
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
9.8 X 7.2 X 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $3200
Fall 2015

A significant and exceptionally fine cabinet specimen of well crystallized Olivenite-Zn from Tsumeb. The surface is densely covered with tabular hexagonal crystals which is a rare Olivenite habit typical of zinc rich varieties which is chemically very close to Cuprian Adamite. The crystals are clustered in rows, stacks, sheaves and rosettes. The condition is excellent and by naked eye perfect, 20X magnification finds just a few very tiny rub spots. The matrix is massive Cuprite and the esthetics, color and display quality are all top notch. This is an exceptional and important Tsumeb specimen that will be a fine addition for a top quality suite.
Neptunite on Natrolite
stock #8AE-705
San Benito Peak, San Benito County
California, United States
5 x 3.7 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $240
Fall 2015

Neptunite crystals with very high luster reaching 2.3 CM are set on contrasting snow white Natrolite. A very attractive specimen in good condition with textbook terminated crystals some of which show doubly terminated prisms well exposed from the matrix. There will not be any more of these as the locale is finished, this is an older recycled collection specimen.
Brazilianite with Muscovite
stock #7.1-023
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.1 x 3 x 2.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $525
Fall 2015

Another Brazillian classic. This features a fine sharp, glassy and partly gemmy Brazilianite that is nicely paired with Muscovite showing twin crystal forms. In great condition, the specimen displays very well from several sides. From the major pockets found in 2008, this quality is not being found now. There have been two major finds of fine Brazilianite in the past 70 years, both were different in habit, it may be a long while before the next one if ever. A good value for an esthetic and choice specimen.
HOLD Beryl V. Aquamarine (classic Royalston Beryl)
stock #HOLD 15.1-698
Royalston, Worcester County
Massachusetts, United States
3.3 x 2.2 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $875
Fall 2015

A prized find for any classic USA collection is a good Royalston Aquamarine. This one is a small but super fine, gemmy and esthetic specimen. Collected by Warren Johansson in 1948 this was in his collection until his recent passing. Warren made finds at Royalston in 1937 and 1948. These were the last important specimens to be collected there. This locale was famed back in the 1850s, visited by Dana mined by Hamlin and others it is legendary. This piece is quite gemmy with the rare sought blue green hue. Despite a small chip the condition is excellent for the locale and this has great form with contrasting matrix. We have not seen any Royalston close to this good available for years
Fluorite - Gemmy, vintage Wise mine (pre 1910)
stock #15.1-643
William Wise Mine
New Hampshire, United States
6.5 x 5.1 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Fall 2015

A very early specimen vintage 1910 from the classic Wise mine of New Hampshire. This is an undamaged floater, highly etched crystal mass with very rich green color. This is nearly all gemmy with large areas of facet grade Fluorite. Ex Warren Johansson collection obtained by trade in 1937, he notes the previous owner obtained it in 1910. An unusual and fine specimen from anyplace but especially good from this most classic old US locale

A small but choice single cube with a tiny bit of matrix from this very interesting location. Excellent clarity (better in person) and sharply beveled corners are features of these Fluorites. This is in fine condition damage wise, small contacts are noted on the backside.
