Vesuviantite
stock #17.AL-491
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.9 x 1.5 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $2600
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine miniature, bright and esthetic "V" of prismatic Vesuvianites are nicely decorated with smaller crystals with contrasting pink and purple hues. Excellent luster, the small crystals sparkle and the larger crystals have glassy smooth faces. This has the eye appeal that makes this type of Vesuviianite so desirable. In very good condition with no eye visible damage, 10X magnification shows some small chips and contacts that are clearly not distracting. Specimens of this calibre when available are usually far more expensive.
Topaz
stock #AC-372
Jos Plateau
Plateau State, Nigeria
4.2 x 1.6 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

An older specimen that came out in the 1960's, this is an alluvial piece that is distinctly waterworn. The remarkable thing is that the crystal form is very clear despite the tumbling and softened edges, it still has a gemmy clear core, no internal cleaves and typical habit. Ex Schortmann's minerals (with label), they were the first to offer Nigerian Topaz that was collected by missionaries in that period from gravel bars. This has a very faint blue green hue but in most lighting seems milky white.
Kammererite with Zaratite
stock #13.1-251
Kop Krom Mine, Kop Daglari, Erzurum Province
East Anatolia, Turkey
5.5 x 3.6 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Intense color and in excellent condition, a rich specimen of well crystallized Kammererite. The Kop Krom mine has produced by far the best examples of this rare Chrome Clinochlore, this piece also has a druze of tiny Zaratite crystals best seen under magnification. The Kammererite crystals on this piece are not the typical plates or druse, they are sharp, prismatic and well exposed on the matrix. Hard to find in this quality.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF)- classic locale
stock #14.1-078
Nevel Quarry, Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
10.9 x 7.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
pre Tucson 2015 update

A large cabinet sized matrix of quartz and mixed pegmatite that hosts a dense mass of interlocked purple Apatite crystals. From the famed Nevel Quarry in Maine that is more famed for fine Tourmalines. The sharp and glassy crystals reach over 9mm but most are about 5-6 in size. The color is a good medium purple that is lighter than from the nearby Pulsifer Quarry. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare from the Nevel and this one also has a few tiny unidentified Phosphate crystals as well. Minor bruises are seen with magnification and some cracks are noted in the matrix yet the naked eye display is excellent.
Rhodochrosite with Acanthite and Fluorite, Quartz, Pyrite and Sphalerite
stock #ALEC_22-062
Wudong mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh
Guangxi, China
4.8 X 3.5 X 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1350
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine, high impact specimen with well formed red rhombs (up to 2.2 CM) offset with branching crystallized Acanthite. This specimen shows very well the combination of Sulphide species that were associated with this remarkable find of Rhodochrosite. Excellent condition and form, this can be displayed from several angles.
Titanite -var. Sphene, twinned crystals
stock #ALEC-9-060
Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3 x 2.5 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $220
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gemmy twin crystals with sharp edges and bright luster on a contrasting matrix. In good condition overall but with some edge chipping, hence more affordable. This is from finds made in the 1990's which had especially good color.
Dioptase
stock #ALEC -19-194
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
4.5 x 3.7 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

Pure emerald green Dioptase in a jackstraw arrangement of bright crystals, in excellent condition with no matrix. A fine Kaokoveld specimen with gemmy zones and individual crystals over 1.6 CM. Very 3 dimensional, this has very good esthetics.
Elbaite on Albite
stock #A7-153-498
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Northern Areas, Pakistan
4 x 3.2 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $325
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very cute small specimen with sharp Tourmalines that grade from a bottle-green to colorless at the termination. Nice esthetics and fine form - there is no damage at all on the display side. A tiny chip on a small crystal on the back of the piece that can not be seen is the only issue to mention and it is quite minor. The contrast with the feldspar is great, this is a vintage 1980's piece ex Larry White Collection.
