Barite
stock #A27-252
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
4.8 x 2.4 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Post Tucson 2015

One of the best mineral bargains of the past few years is the Barites of Cerro Warihuyan. These are sharp, gemmy and attractive, excellent examples of the specie and very affordable. The matrix is a mix of Barite and Rhodochrosite, the condition is perfect and quite esthteic. This is much better than most.
Smithsonite
stock #13.1-083
Kelly Mine, Magdelena district
New Mexico, United States
3.4 x 2.6 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

Brilliant, wet luster with top color in a classic Smithsonite that can only have come from the Kelly mine. This has the luster and shine that has made this locale classic. In excellent condition, far better in person and intensely attractive.
Fluorite
stock #10.1-213
May Stone and Sand Quarry - Fort Wayne, Allen County
Indiana, United States
3.7 x 2.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $120
Post Tucson 2015

A cute, glass-clear Fluorite in a razor sharp cube nicely perched on its matrix. Almost colorless there is a light yellow hue in the crystal. From a find in the 1960 era, this could be trimmed to an excellent thumbnail if desired but I like it as is. No damage at all, a small contact on the back edge is not seen on display.
Adamite -with purple tips
stock #15.1-293
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.8 x 3.5 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $390
Post Tucson 2015

A really esthetic zoned Adamite spray that goes from transparent yellow-green to intense red-purple at the terminations. In fine condition and with great color and luster, this is a nice addition to any Mexican suite. The spray is sizable at 2.4 CM and is well protected in a ledgelike vug. Choice.
Scheelite w. Goshenite & Pyrite
stock #15.1-097
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8.1 x 6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Post Tucson 2015

An excellent and very weird Scheelite from the great Xuebaoding locale. Great deep orange red color Scheelites to 4.8 CM in elongated psuedo-octahedral crystals that also so some selected etching that is almost never seen. The form is quite unusual and the matrix is even more odd, completely unlike other Xuebaoding specimens. Close exam shows small but typical flattened Goshenite Beryls and related minerals seen from this find. The Scheelite is also quite clear and has gemmy areas, In 16 years of dealing with Xuebaoding Scheelites I have only seen 2 specimens of this style.
Fluorite
stock #15.1-030
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
5.5 x 3.7 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $425
Post Tucson 2015

An etched "Carthage corner" of pale purple to light yellow Fluorite. Complete and well defined, the insides of the crystal are gem clear. This uncommon habit is especially distinct from the Elmwood mine, and this piece is a very good example. Only one edge has a bruise that is not seen on display, otherwise this is in good condition. Better in person and at a very reasonable cost for one of these.
Erythrite
stock #10.1-465
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
8.2 x 4.4 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $975
Post Tucson 2015

Top color and glassy luster in an esthetic fine specimen. From the worlds greatest find of Erythrites, some years ago at Shaft 1, Bou Azzer, this shows the quality that made these famous. The individual crystals are translucent to transparent, sharp contrast well with the matrix. Overall in perfect condition although with 10X magnification some tiny crystals show minor damage not seen by naked eye. For such a delicate mineral this is virtually perfect and very showy.
Grossular
stock #ALEC-30-028
Eden Mills Quarries, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.7 x 2.9 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $700
Post Tucson 2015

A very attractive Garnet from the sought after classic "Eden Mills" quarries (Lowell). This Grossular has a relatively rare color, a rich reddish rootbeer hue. Quite transparent and with glassy luster, you can easily see the yellow highlights inside the clear crystals. There is chipping as seen in the photos that is not very noticable in person. Almost all specimens of this sort have some damage, this is far better than usual.
