Quartz - Epidote included -layered phantoms
stock #15.1-119
Cisneros, Mun. de Buenaventura
Valle del Cauca, Colombia
9.4 x 5.9 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $175
May 2015

An oddity from this little known Gold mining area of Colombia, a quartz prism with complex internal layers of greenish epidote phantoms. This singly terminated crystal is quite chipped and bruised as were all in the find, but it is far better than most. While we almost never offer such a damaged specimen this is a very unusual Quartz that is unique to this locale and quite unusual. These were found in 2010 and most ended up as beautiful cut stones, cabs etc that showed the green layers to advantage. There are few if any sizable uncut crystals available in any condition.
Fluorite - penetration twins, early specimen
stock #AC-356
Weardale North Pennines
County Durham, England
4.9 x 4.7 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $700
May 2015

Brilliant green transparent cubes to 4 CM across show penetrations and fine growth hillocks. This also has a very nice daylight Fluorescence in vivid purple blue. A quite old specimen (pre 1950's) that is notably different from any of the recent finds. The color and clarity stand out in person, but are hard to see in photos. The condition is fine on the two primary display sides, the back is broken where it was removed and not visible in any logical display.
Libethenite -rosette on matrix
stock #15.1-506
Nkana Mine, Kitwe, Kitwe District
Copperbelt Province, Zambia
4.5 x 34.4 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $280
May 2015

A rosette of sharp and lustrous Libethenite crystals in a shallow vug that shows very well. We have looked carefully to see if there were any repairs or glue on this, it appears to be intact and undamaged. One of the more esthetic examples I have seen the rosette is 1.3 CM in size. An older specimen of a habit that has not been available for some time, the crystal forms are quite distinct and have a good deep green color.
Staurolite
stock #ALEC-10-1074
Coray, Finistere
Brittany, France
10 x 7.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $165
May 2015

A French Staurolite on matrix from an old collection, the crystals are up to 2.7 CM in size. There are several penetrations that seem to be twinned, and the crystals protrude nicely from the matrix. A sizable piece with many crystals, displays very well.
Olivenite- well xl'd
stock #15.1-433
Wheal Gorland
Cornwall, England
5.5 x 3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
May 2015

A really good Cornish Olivenite with fine color and contrast to the matrix. There are several other Copper secondaries on the Quartz matrix that add nice color. The crystal druze is sizable and in excellent condition. Classic old material that displays well.
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.
