Spinel
stock #15.1-324
Kayauk-saung
Mogok, Burma (Myanmar)
2.3 x 1.7 x 1.7 (thumbnail)
price: $600
Post Tucson 2015

Superb color, this super sharp octahedron is brilliant Ruby red on contrasting white Marble matrix. Fine classic Mogok thumbnail specimen, this has visual impact far greater than its size. In excellent condition as seen, this level of quality is not common at all.
Elbaite -slightly curved crystal
stock #ALEC-19-100
Barra de Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.2 x 2.2 x 1.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

A darker bottle green Tourmaline with a subtle curve, color gradation and complete termination. 34.5 Grams in heft, there is an area of fibrous (cats eye) crystal in the curve zone where this crystal has had some natural breaks and rehealing. There is one repair at that point as well. A good, sizable, affordable crystal from a famed locale in good condition as seen.
Elbaite v. Indicolite
stock #ALEC-19-320
Pederniera Claim, Sao Jose da Safira, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.8 x .5 x .5 CM (miniature)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

Blue color zoned gem Tourmaline in perfect condition and with fine luster. The body of this is a darker blue that needs backlighting to show up well, the tip is a very transparent light blue that grades darker along the crystal. A very nice "steel blue" crystal from the famed Pederneira claim, these are modern classics and not very common at not stratospheric prices.
Fluorite -zoned
stock #14.1-283
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
9 x 8.1 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250
Post Tucson 2015

Outstanding deep grape purple color in large gem-clear phantomed crystals. The contrasting greenish Muscovite matrix presents the Fluorites as very three dimensional. The crystals reach over 4.4 CM which is very large for this type, but they still have fine color. In exceptional, undamaged condition, this is a strong, eyecatching display piece. Nothing of this quality has come from Yaoganxian for a few years, these are now considered modern classics and make a fine esthetic addition to any good Fluorite or Chinese suite.
Fluorite on Schorl
stock #ALEC-14-159
Erongo mountain, Usakos and Omaruru districts
Erongo region, Namibia
7.3 x 5.3 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
Post Tucson 2015

A wonderful sculpture of well formed crystals in fine condition. An excellent Erongo specimen that looks great on all sides. The Fluorites are zoned, complex translucent to transparent purple crystals. The Schorl is very lustrous and shows several types of terminations. A sprinkling of tiny Quartz crystals adds the final touch. A very good value for the quality.
Chalcocite
stock #ALEC-19-108
Flambeau Mine, Ladysmith, Rusk County
Wisconsin, United States
4.4 x 2.4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $480
Post Tucson 2015

A stacked cluster of sharp, well formed, slightly iridescent crystals from the famed Flambeau mine. In fine condition, the largest crystals are about 1.5 CM across and show the twinned psuedo hexagonal habit with pyramid terminations. Classic "soot" black with metallic edges in a very distinctive form.
Benitoite
stock #15.1-292
San Benito Peak, San Benito County
California, United States
8 x 4.9 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Post Tucson 2015

An array of zoned blue Benitoite crystals on contrasting white Natrolite. Classic material from this famed locale with crystals to 2 CM size. Some chipping on crystals as seen in the photos, a relatively affordable piece with a pleasing arrangement on the matrix.
Fluorite w. Boulangerite and Scheelite inclusions (rare)
stock #6.2-565
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
2.8 x 3.5 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

Single clear cube of Fluorite densely filled with metallic needle crystals of Boulangerite. There are also a few tiny gemmy Scheelites and Calcites scattered on the sides and edges. With a loupe it is impressive to see that there are several perfect clear golden Scheelites inside the Fluorite, with excellent clarity. These Scheelites also have Boulangerite growing inside of them, in an arrangement that I have not seen ever before. The specimen in vintage 2002, and a very special oddity.
