Mazapil, Conception del Oro
Zacatecas, Mexico
2.3 x 1.8 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A perfect killer, an undamaged thumbnail of transparent Azurite crystal blades in a radiating cluster. Ex Willard Perkin collection (1907-1991, the inventor of the perky box). From early finds at Conception del Oro, Zacatecas that have not seen on the market for decades. Bright and of competition quality this of course comes in a Perky box as mounted long ago by Willard. The crystals glow a brilliant blue when lit from behind and the bright luster has to be seen to be appreciated.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF) hollow tube
stock #17.1-687
Sapo Mine, Goiabeira
Minas Gerais, Brazil
10.1 x 3.6 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1350


An excellent Apatite crystal cluster from the older finds at the Sapo mine. Far better than most that came out, The color and luster and condition are first rate. These amazing but odd habit Apatites have had many names (Crullers, Snakes, Tubes, Medusas etc) and are fantastic examples of epitaxial growth; These have prisms in a chain or parallel growth that is built around a hollow tube composed of many stacked crystals. A really fine, textbook quality specimen in excellent condition. There is a separate smaller branch growth and very good transparency, color and luster on this. No damage or repairs which is rare in any piece of this size, this is even better in person, to me this is a real mineralogical marvel.
Fluorite - Zoned with Calcite
stock #17.1-685-A18x
Annabel Lee Mine, Bethel Level, North End, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.5 x 5.3 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $880


A classic Cave in Rock Fluorite with yellow and orange cores and purple outer zoning. Some well defined etching and pitting contrasts well with the sharper corners and edges. The Calcites are distinctive of the Annabelle Lee mine, and quite a nice esthetic addition. The condition of the display face is very good the only damage or contacting is the outer edges and backside where this was removed. A lot of good display impact for the size. Choice Fluorites of this quality are fast becoming very very expensive. As the mines have now been closed for decades, there will never be more of these and only turn up in older collections.

Yukon Territory, Canada
3.1 x 2 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))

Bright and sharp Lazulite crystal cluster perched on a Quartz crystal matrix from Rapid Creek. This zone in the Yukon has produced some of the most incredible Lazulite crystals on earth, with this type of deep indigo blue color and shining luster. A nice example, some contacts on one back edge but displays well without that being seen. A lot of display impact for the size and a good value.

Hunan, China
10.7 x 6 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)

An impressive Yaoganxian specimen with gem clear Zoned/ phantom Fluorites scattered on sizable clear Quartz crystals. Ex Charles Noll collection, an older specimen. Very 3-dimensional with top quality color and sharpness for the Fluorites. The backside and base of this are contacted and broken where it was removed which can not be seen on display. The display side is in impeccable undamaged condition which is rare. One of the worlds top mineral locales, Yaoganxian now produces almost nothing, this type of quality is only found in older collections.
SOLD Descloisite - stacked epitaxial leafy Crystals
stock #SOLD 17.1-545
Berg Aukus, Grootfontein District
Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
5.6 x 3.6 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $0


A killer Berg Aukus Descloisite with sharp red-brown elongated leafy crystals in a sculptural array. Tiny Calcite rhombohedrons are scattered on most crystals adding a very nice touch. Despite the delicacy and fragility this is in fantastic condition as seen. Only one part of a single crystal (backside) has a very small naked eye visible chip. 30 X magnification finds very tiny edge nibbles, none of which affect display. This is as close to perfect as I have ever seen, and an esthetic specimen. Classic material, the Berg Aukus mine once produced by far the worlds best Descloisites in many habits. This is a fine specimen that is delicate, beautiful and rare in such quality.

Choice. The Celestite is present as white bladed crystals giving a nice accent. Nothing of this quality has come out for a few years, these are modern classics.
