Amethyst Scepter
stock #ALEC-12-008
Simeone Quarry, Wrentham
Massachusetts, United States
4 x 3.2 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $220
pre Tucson 2015 update

A small but well defined Massachusetts Amethyst in scepters and parallel growths. Sharp with good clarity and subdued zoned color, this is for its size a very fine specimen from this locale. A fair sized contact on the edge back is not seen when mounted for display. All of the three top tips are perfectly undamaged even at 30X magnification. Very few were found in this condition.
Rose Quartz
stock #ALEC-10-629
Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.8 x 3.2 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Rose Quartz crystals in a neat bundle from the great finds in Brazil circa 1970. This is mostly just pure crystallized rose Quartz with some inclusions. Fine transparency and minimal damage (micro chips and contacts)that is not easy to see by naked eye. The price reflects the minor imperfections, if you are not a strict perfectionist this is a very good value for the rarest type of crystallized quartz. The crystals reach 2 CM.
SOLD Cerussite
stock #SOLD A7-359-372
Flux Mine, Patagonia
Arizona, United States
5 x 4.3 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

The old jackstraw habit Cerussites from the Flux mine are an American classic. The best specimens are delicate, complex and have a silky luster. This is that type in very good condition. As is typical there is no matrix, just slender crystals of Cerussite in complex bundles and sprays. Ex Larry White Collection. Due to the delicacy of this specimen the "base" is wax that allows safe display and transport. This can be removed easily but since it is well hidden it is recommended to keep for protection.
Wulfenite
stock #ALEC-29-036
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.9 x 3.5 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

A delicate small Tsumeb Wulfenite that has fine transparency. Very nice butterscotch color, there are some unidentified tiny white platey crystals as well on the matrix. The specimen has some tiny edge chipping damage on one of the crystals so the price reflects this. This could be trimmed to a thumbnail but I like it just as it is. By naked eye this displays just like an undamaged piece.
Phenakite on Adularia
stock #ALEC-26-011
Mt. Antero, Chaffee Co.
Colorado, United States
3.4 x 2.5 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $100
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, sizable Phenakite from Colorado. The old labels say Phenakite on Adularia, they are somewhat transparent and glassy. The main crystal is big for the locale at 1.1 CM, it has a fine glassy luster and is in good condition With magnification it seems to show some twinning and has unusualy curved faces formed from several offset faces. A nice affordable Mt. Antero specimen.
Cerussite- new find, Ojuela
stock #ALEC-29-108
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
7.3 x 4.8 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Post Tucson 2015

A delicate and complex Cerussite fro m the recent find at Mina Ojuela. These are glassy crystals associated with Pyrite that have inclusions that make part of the crystals opaque. There is some green to blue green inclusions and coatings as well so the overall look is dark. There are many crystal habits on this piece, some twinned, sixlings and untwinned prisms. Some damage exists but much less than on nearly all pieces in the find. The longest crystal is 3.1 CM, before this find Cerussite was very rare at Ojuela.
Mimetite -New find at classic locale
stock #ALEC-29-018
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.8 x 4.2 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $325
Post Tucson 2015

From another small but exciting new find at the great Mina Ojuela, a well crystallized bright Mimetite. The orange red color is vibrant and the tiny crystals sparkle thoughout. No damage can be seen by naked eye, but a little is seen at 20 X magnification. The individual crystals are all transparent and gemmy. A nice addition to any Ojuela suite.
Zoisite (gem crystal from Pakistan)
stock #8.AE-870
Alchuri, Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan
Northern Areas, Pakistan
2.9 x 1 x .5 CM (miniature)
price: $240
pre Tucson 2015 update

A gem clear Zoisite crystal that is not at all like the usual from Tanzania. This is a nice small example with well defined striations and habit that is also distinct and shows dichroism. This came out over 10 years ago and since then we have not seen any. A minor chip is noted with magnification so this is not for the picky perfectionist, but it is a nice displayable gem crystal that is affordable. A rare example from an unusual locality.
