Grossular on Diopside and Calcite
stock #ALEC-20-156
Eden Mills Quarries, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
6.7 x 6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100
Post Tucson 2015

A very special and undamaged Grossular with bright luster and red brown color nicely perched on a complex crystallized matrix. An American classic locale, the so called "Eden Mills" area is usually the Lowell Quarry or the "C" pit, both of Lamoille County, Vermont. The locations are long closed and good specimens are rare. This one is fine and unusual as the matrix has 3 habits of clear calcite crystals nestled in etched Diopside crystals. This particular assemblage is quite uncommon. Several smaller Grossular are present with the largest 1.8 CM across. Good Lowell area specimens are highly sought after and treasured. Few are available and even average specimens are now rather expensive, really good ones are very rare and commensurately priced.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-516
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2 x 1 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Post Tucson 2015

Esthetic bi-color Vesuvianite with excellent luster. In fine condition and much better in person, from the world s best locality for Vesuvianite, the great Jeffrey mine. These are modern classics and the mine is now gone forever. Once common, this quality level has become quite rare and often very expensive.
Spodumenne var. Kunzite
stock #A7-173-96
Resplendor Mine - Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
10.2 x 2.4 x .9 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

Gem clear sharp etched crystal that is a complete floater (no point of attachment). No damage and with good color zoning, the real beauty is the complex stepped and curved crystal faces on every side of the crystal. Formerly in the Larry White collection, this is better in person.
SOLD Mimetite with Calcite
stock #SOLD 16.1-035
Santa Eulalia, Aguiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.2 x 6.1 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Post Tucson 2015

From a find over 40 years ago, this is an esthetic specimen showing perfect orange balls of Mimetite reaching 8mm scattered on matrix. The Calcite crystals are in several habits and add a nice sparkle for contrast. Not much resembling this was ever found and these are just not available. In fine condition.
Pyromorphite with Wulfenite (rare at this locale)
stock #A7-546-414
Sherman Mine, Burke, Coeurd'Alene District, Shoshone Co.
Idaho, United States
5.8 x 5.1 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Post Tucson 2015

A very delicate Sherman Mine Pyromorphite, crystallized on all sides with individuals reaching 1 CM. Micro crystals of bright red prismatic gemmy Wulfenite are scattered over the specimen (best seen on the 4th photo in the series). Although small I am informed that this is a great rarity for Idaho, one find vintage 1970's. In very good condition the only damage is found with magnification and is limited to edge crystals not seen by naked eye. Most of the matrix is filled with large vugs presenting dense clusters of elongated crystals having both hollow and pointed tips. Nice yellow to green hues and good luster, ex Larry White collection obtained in 1976. The Pyros from here are now very hard to find in any quality, the Wulfenite is a great rare bonus.
Celestine -floater cluster
stock #0223-JM-0223
Clay Center, Ottawa County
Ohio, United States
9 x 8.2 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Post Tucson 2015

Ex John Marshall Collection, a fine zoned blue Celestite that has no attachment point, it is crystallized all around. The individual crystals reach 3.5 CM and are sharp with sky blue cores. Vintage 1970's undamaged from a now classic locale. Clay center still sometimes produces a few good specimens but this quality is not typical, the color is a little more vivid in person.
Quartz- Red incusioons of Hematite
stock #ALEC-11-408
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
4.7 x 3.1 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $380
Post Tucson 2015

A classic Orange river Quartz on matrix that has excellent esthetics, form and condition. Deep orange red color with good transparency, this is much better than typical for this fantastic locality. One attached crystal that is on the "backside" has damage, that is not seen on display. The main crystal is perfect.
Hubeite and Inesite (very fine, type locality)
stock #ALEC-15-131
Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper Mine), Edong District, Daye County, Huangs
Hubei, China
12.6 x 11.9 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Post Tucson 2015

A superb Hubeite specimen. This is a fine, large and impressive plate fully crystallized by sharp transparent Inesites and darker brown red Hubeites. This Hubeite is especially good as it is very sharply formed, densely packed and in much larger than usual crystals. All in all this is showy and damage free which is remarkable for such delicate minerals.
