Langite
stock #15.1-531
Bedford United Mine, Tavistock Hamlets, Tavistock
Devon, England
4.3 x 4.1 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $130
May 2015

A small, brilliant colored English Langite from the classic location of Tavistock. Bright sparkling crystals and a nice contrast to the matrix too. In fine condition there looks to be some Caledonite (not verified) intermixed in the Langites, but it could also be an unusual Brochantite which is more common from the locale.
Stilbite -Radial type-classic locale
stock #15.1-523
Paterson
New Jersey, United States
7.2 5.6 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $140
May 2015

An old Schortmann's specimen circa 1948-50 from the Patterson New Jersey area. The radial ball of Stilbite is 3.2 CM across and nicely exposed. This sort of esthetic is not very common from this classic locale best known for Prehnites. In fine condition.
Epidote
stock #13.1-343
Garnet Hill, Calaveras County
California, United States
3.9 x 1.9 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $165
May 2015

A single sharp and well formed Epidote crystal from the Garnet hill locale in California's Gold country. Undamaged as seen, there are some tiny secondary epidotes ecrusting some faces. A very good example from this interesting locale.
Quartz var. Citrine (old find)
stock #ALEC-10-935
"Santander Pegmatite"
Santander, Colombia
4.7 x 2.1 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $330
May 2015

A fine and gemmy Citrine pair of sharp crystals from a find made in Colombia in the 1970's. There have not been more since these came out, and this is a good example of the quality of the find. An extremely small chip is noted on this, otherwise in fine condition with delicate lemon color. Where the two crystals are joined there are interesting wispy inclusions some of which are curved and hairlike. The location has always been given as the "Santander Pegmatite" of which there are many. Recent attempts to relocate this find have so far failed.
Barite (gemmy golden) on Quartz w. Fluorite
stock #ALEC-26-010
Pohla Mine, Schwarzenberg District
Saxony, Germany
10 x 7.4 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
May 2015

A venerable German classic- this matrix plate hosts several sharp gem clear Barites to 2 CM. In very good condition, the matrix has some minor Fluorite and Pyrite but is mostly composed of sparkling Quartz. Displays well as is or could be trimmed to make several fine miniatures. Previous dealer labels included (with 500.00$ price tag).
Rhodonite on Calcite with Franklinite
stock #9.1-251
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
4 x 2.9 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $260
May 2015

A complete 2.9 CM crystal of Rhodonite is perched above a smaller 2.3 CM crystal resting on Calcite matrix. Nicely exposed, the Calcite has not been acid "melted" so this is fully natural. An affordable classic specimen with good color, form and in nice condition, these are getting quite
Chrysocolla pseudo after Azurite/Malachite
stock #15.1-490
Lupoto mine, Lubumbashi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Shaba, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
8.3 x 6.9 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
May 2015

One of the most exciting new finds this year are these very colorful Pseudomorphs from the Congo. This specimen is especially well formed with big (up to 6.2 CM) sharp crystals showing Azurite form. The crystals are now hollow casts with a small amount of residual Malachite seen inside with magnification. The entire specimen is covered with tiny, sharply terminated crystals of deep blue Chrysocolla. In fine condition esthetic and eyecatching.
Stellerite
stock #ALEC-32-215
Diaboukara, Diakon, Cercle de Bafoulabe
Kayes Region, Mali
4.9 x 3.1 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $330
May 2015

A relatively new find from Mali, the spherical "flowerlike" aggregates have recently been confirmed as Stellerite while the bowtie shaped crystals are Stilbites. This is a fine condition example with great form. Deep green Epidote crystals are up to 3.3 CM, overall a very attractive piece with top form.
