Cassiterite
stock #ALEC-12-213
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
3.8 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

There have been many Cassiterites recovered from Xuebaoding, but the prismatic type with the pyrimidal termination is by far the rarest form. This is a good lustrous single crystal that shows the habit well. There are contacts and a few tiny chips so the price reflects this yet it is still a very nice example.
Golden Barite w-Calcite
stock #6.2-746
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi, China
7.8 x 5.4 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sweet gemmy golden Barite with tabular Calcites that are decorated in turn with Pyrite. The Barites have dark phantoms and the overall contrast is excellent. This is from a small find at Nandan in 2002, which were mostly very damaged. This has minimal damage, none of which is naked eye-visible from logical display angles. Much nicer in person too.
Weloganite with Dresserite, Dawsonite
stock #ALEC-10-946
Francon Quarry - Montreal
Quebec, Canada
8.5 x 8.1 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sizable cavity filled with sharp Weloganite crystals up to 2.2 CM long. There are numerous tiny crystals of the classic related species (and probably some Strontianites too. The Francon Quarry is now gone, its Weloganites were by far the best ever found worldwide. The biggest of these are undamaged with the elegant complex hourglass habit well presented. There are some "natural" broken crystals in the pocket that show signs of partial rehealing. A good, affordable specimen with some well formed, rare crystals.
Calcite included by Realgar
stock #8.1-123
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
3.1 x 2.9 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $140
pre Tucson 2015 update

We have seen very few of these esthetic Calcites from the Shimen mine, and none for several years. This was obtained in China in 2002, it is a single gemmy Calcite included by and associated with blood red Realgar. The crystal displays well and the staining of the orange-red color adds a very attractive touch.
Fluorite
stock #ALEC-20-071
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
4 x 3.2 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

Good Fluorite from the Elmwood mine is always desirable but the mine is mostly producing Calcite now. This is a small but quite nice specimen that sits on a contrasting matrix. Nice zoning and clarity, this one has the delicate surface steps and it is possible to see the matrix through the Fluorite. A modern American classic, still affordable for now, but attractive enough for any collection.
Rhodonite- Single crystal
stock #Alec-29-033
Conselheiro Lafaiete
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.3 x 2.6 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $220
pre Tucson 2015 update

A translucent bright red single crystal of Rhodonite that is complete and distinctive. There are a few tiny unidentified yellow crystals on one face, otherwise this is all Rhodonite. This area had a major discovery a few years ago that produced some of the worlds best Rhodonites that sold for huge sums. This specimen is not that good or anything close to that expensive. An extremely flattened Rhomb, there is some minor edge chipping is seen in the photos but still displays well.
Adamite (purple/manganoan) with Lotharmeyerite
stock #13.1-385
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.2 x 3.1 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $340
pre Tucson 2015 update

A classic assemblage of Adamites with some distinct purple crystals and tiny Lothameyerite crystals scattered as well. The Geothite matrix has several vugs but the largest vug is the most logical for display with a 2.5 CM span of Adamite. The crystals are sharp, glassy and have classic form, in quite good condition, the only damage is at the edges and is mostly not naked eye visible. purple is the rarest color for Adamite and the most desired, usually these are quite expensive.
Scheelite on Dolomite with minor Ferberite
stock #4.2-175.1
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
5.3 x 4.1 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
pre Tucson 2015 update

A Yaoganxian Scheelite that is really attractive and has very sharp individual crystals to 1.3 CM. Great luster and translucent Scheelite contrasts well with the crystallized Dolomite matrix. A few crystals at the edges are incomplete they seem contacted, but the main specimen is in excellent condition. The entire specimen is formed over FGerberite crystals that are responsible for the bladed shape of the whole piece. The Ferberite is encased inm Dolomite and only visible at the base where it was removed.
