Spessartine over Orthoclase
stock #ALEC-12-426
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
11.6 x 9.9 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $580
Post Tucson 2015

A big bright Spessartine garnet plate in which the original matrix of blocky Orthoclase crystals are now covered with bright sparkling garnets. Wonderful form, great condition with deep color, good luster and lots of sparkle. This quality was never common when Tongbei was productive, it is all but completely exhausted now. A future classic and likely to appreciate quickly.
Pyrolusite /Hausmannite pseudo after Manganite
stock #ALEC-10-857
Ilmenau
Thuringia, Germany
7.8 x 4.3 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Post Tucson 2015

A very old piece formerly from collections of Ara Dildalion and William Hladysz, but likely far older. The forms of the original Manganite crystals are very clearly seen are are up to 6.8 C. The luster of the piece is overall a dull "sooty" black but some faces and terminations have a shiny black luster as well. This region is the source of the great classic Manganites that are especially sought after. This sort of Psuedomorph is not especially pretty but they are rare and this one has especially good form
Spinel -Classic old locale
stock #15.1-168
Amity, Orange County
New York, United States
3.3 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $250
Post Tucson 2015

A very good example of Amity NY Spinel that was world famed when first found in the 1840's. The exact locale is now lost today, but occasional small finds are made in the area. This is an old specimen in fine condition, sharp, complete and with a nice contrast to the matrix.
Fluorite & Quartz
stock #15.1-096
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
5.2 x 4.5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

Sharp and clear Fluorites with some unusual (for Yaoganxian) frosted faces sit nicely on unusual flatted Quartz crystals. Obtained in China in 2002 at the peak of Yaoganxian's productivity. In excellent condition, this has a different look than most YGX pieces and is quite esthetic.
Spodumenne var. Kunzite
stock #ALEC-12-603
Darra-I Pech Pegmatite Field
Konar (Kunar) Province, Afganistan
11.1 x 7.3 x 9.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Post Tucson 2015

An older, sizable matrix specimen of light blueish Clevelandite hosts a 5.8 CM Kunzite crystal sharply terminated with good color and zoning. Associated are Quartz crystals to over 3 CM and a few scattered Elbaite and Schorl are noted too. The esthetics are quite nice while the Kunzite is nicely etched and in fine undamaged condition. Some chipping and bruises are seen on the quartz which keeps the price quite low but this still displays nicely.
SOLD Malachite ps after Azurite
stock #SOLD 15.1-361
Sacramento Mine, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mtns, Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
3.2 x 3 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $0
Post Tucson 2015

Well-formed, architectural classic Bisbee Pseudomorph of Malachite replacing Azurite. Very sharp prismatic replacement with a fine patina on the crystals. From a small collection made in 1921-22 by a Bisbee miner, that was recently re-discovered, wrapped in vintage newspapers and long underware. In perfect undamaged condition, few such small miniatures were saved. A great bit of history and a very attractive Arizona specimen
Amazonite (Microcline) & Smoky Quartz
stock #15.1-300
Mona Mine, Pikes Peak, El Paso Co.
Colorado, United States
4.3 x 4.7 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $440
Post Tucson 2015

Extra intense color for a Microcline, this miniature from Pikes Peak area, Colorado and has much deeper blue green color than most Colorado localities. In fine condition damage wise, there is a nice association of Cleavlandite blades nestled between the crystals. An American classic locality, this is relatively recent find from a small working claim. Better in person, with great display impact in a small size.
Amethyst
stock #15.1-411
Boekenhoutshoek, Mkobola
Mpumalanga, South Africa
5.1 x 3.4 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Post Tucson 2015

South African "cactus" quartz is a popular commodity in the mineral market, but the deeper purple hues are the most rare and few are available. This deep hued specimen is in perfect undamaged condition with great form and shows the termination "star" of zoned purple that is most desirable. Good cactus Quartz is one of the bargains of the mineral world.
