Calcite
stock #A7-028-1284
Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
5.3 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Post Tucson 2015

Classic old English Calcite from the Egremont mines, Ex Larry White collection. The habit and clarity are typical of this region and these Calcite can be very expensive when they turn up at shows. Fine condition and eye clean (no damage noted by naked eye)the crystals have a slightly milky look but are still fully transparent.
Native Silver
stock #7.AE-205
Elura Mine, Cobar, Robinson Co.
New South Wales, Australia
4 x 2.2 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $490
Post Tucson 2015

One of the very best most detailed Elura Silvers I have ever seen. The Elura mine is the source of a distinctive habit of crystallized Silver, this being a superb example. Herringbone crystals and elongated spinel twins, some of which are flattened are all joined in a tree like sculpture. Excellent patina and in perfect condition, no damage can be found even at 30X magnification. These have become scarce in recent years and this quality was never common.
Smithsonite
stock #ALEC-22-168
San Antonio Mine
Chihuahua, Mexico
5.3 x 3.3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Post Tucson 2015

Small but perfect and pretty miniature of crystallized Smithsonite in "rice grain" habit crystals covering the botroidal surfaces. A dusting of tiny Selenite crystals adds some contrast. Remarkably there is not the slightest hint of damage or bruising on this piece. Very nice color, structure and lustre.
Pyromorphite
stock #15.1-296
Plynlimon Mine, Ponterwyd, Cardiganshire
Wales, England
5.1 x 3.2 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
Post Tucson 2015

A very nice old Welsh Pyromorphite ex Alfred Stevenson Collection with original label. Two toned crystals densely cover the Quartz crystal druse matrix. In remarkable condition, most would call this perfect, it takes good magnification and a careful search to find a few very tiny bruises. This is an obscure locale, typically hard to pronounce, I have only ever seen one other specimen and it was much less impressive than this piece.
Pyromorphite
stock #14.1-064
Wheatley Mines, Pheonixville
Pennsylvania, United States
5.5 x 3.3 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Post Tucson 2015

Wheatley Pyromorphite with dark green hoppered crystals and very bright luster. This piece is ex Warren Johansson's collection, Warren sadly passed away this year at the age of 93. This piece is classic in habit and overall look, it is crystallized on all sides with the best face shown here. Minimal damage this is in far better condition than 99% of these and is clearly not "dump collected" but dates from the original mining of the mid 19th century.
Adamite
stock #10.1-177
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4 x 3.6 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $975
Post Tucson 2015

A fine, sweet pinwheel style Adamite with brilliant color and luster. Minimal matrix this is mostly just a pure, bright Adamite specimen. In fine condition there is no damage aside from the outer edge contacts seen in the photos. The tiny crystals that compose the wheels are perfectly terminated and pristine. A very pretty example that is hard to find now.
Babingtonite
stock #A7-085-1349
Qiaojia County, Zhaotong Prefecture
Yunnan, China
4.3 x 2.4 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

Big, sharp, complete Babingtonite crystals with textbook form from the great Chinese find. Good crystals was rare before 2003, and not even known in crystals bigger than 2 CM. This example has a huge main crystal 4.2 CM long, very bright luster on most faces, almost no matrix and is undamaged. Such a specimen before 2003 would have been the world's best and priceless. Thanks to this find we have some outstanding pieces that are affordable for now.
Serandite w. Aegirine & Leucophanite etc.
stock #ALEC-16-472
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 3.3 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $350
pre Tucson 2015 update

A beautiful and complex specimen with sharp delicate crystals in an attractive jumble. The Serandites are especially nice and translucent. In fine condition, there are several micros of other minerals not identified. Another modern classic locale, St Hillaire has not provided collector minerals for the past 2 years.
