Groutite on petrified wood
stock #8.AE-643
Holbrook, Navajo County
Arizona, United States
4.9 x 2.4 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $200
Post Tucson 2015

A rarity from the famed petrified forests of Arizona, an agatized wood limb fragment is covered on several sides with bright shining needle crystals of Groutite. In good condition and quite unusual.
Barite on Stibnite
stock #12.1-239
Kadamzhay, Alai Range
Osh Oblast, Kyrgyztan
3.6 x 1.5 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

A remarkable, delicate miniature of clear Barite crystals showing distinct phantoms neatly perched on a slender Stibnite crystal. Amazing to see there is no damage at all even under 30X magnification. The Stibnite is terminated as well but it can be difficult to see as the Barites cover it from most views. An unusual specimen from a very unusual locality that we almost never see good specimens from. Choice!
Barite
stock #15.1-AX-27-244
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
4.8 x 2.8 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $90
Post Tucson 2015

One of the best mineral bargains of the past few years is the Barites of Cerro Warihuyan. These are sharp, gemmy and attractive, excellent examples of the specie and very affordable. The matrix is a contrasting Rhodochrosite that presents the crystals well.
Barite
stock #16.1-AX-27-252
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
4.8 x 2.4 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Post Tucson 2015

One of the best mineral bargains of the past few years is the Barites of Cerro Warihuyan. These are sharp, gemmy and attractive, excellent examples of the specie and very affordable. The matrix is a mix of Barite and Rhodochrosite, the condition is perfect and quite esthteic. This is much better than most.
Smithsonite
stock #13.1-083
Kelly Mine, Magdelena district
New Mexico, United States
3.4 x 2.6 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

Brilliant, wet luster with top color in a classic Smithsonite that can only have come from the Kelly mine. This has the luster and shine that has made this locale classic. In excellent condition, far better in person and intensely attractive.
Fluorite
stock #10.1-213
May Stone and Sand Quarry - Fort Wayne, Allen County
Indiana, United States
3.7 x 2.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $120
Post Tucson 2015

A cute, glass-clear Fluorite in a razor sharp cube nicely perched on its matrix. Almost colorless there is a light yellow hue in the crystal. From a find in the 1960 era, this could be trimmed to an excellent thumbnail if desired but I like it as is. No damage at all, a small contact on the back edge is not seen on display.
Adamite -with purple tips
stock #15.1-293
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.8 x 3.5 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $390
Post Tucson 2015

A really esthetic zoned Adamite spray that goes from transparent yellow-green to intense red-purple at the terminations. In fine condition and with great color and luster, this is a nice addition to any Mexican suite. The spray is sizable at 2.4 CM and is well protected in a ledgelike vug. Choice.
Scheelite w. Goshenite & Pyrite
stock #15.1-097
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8.1 x 6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Post Tucson 2015

An excellent and very weird Scheelite from the great Xuebaoding locale. Great deep orange red color Scheelites to 4.8 CM in elongated psuedo-octahedral crystals that also so some selected etching that is almost never seen. The form is quite unusual and the matrix is even more odd, completely unlike other Xuebaoding specimens. Close exam shows small but typical flattened Goshenite Beryls and related minerals seen from this find. The Scheelite is also quite clear and has gemmy areas, In 16 years of dealing with Xuebaoding Scheelites I have only seen 2 specimens of this style.
