SOLD Gratonite
stock #SOLD 13.1-380
Excelsior Mine, Cerro de Pasco, Pasco Province
Pasco Department, Peru
3.3 x 2.2 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

A small crystallized specimen of the rare mineral Gratonite from the only find of good specimens some years ago at the Excelsior mine. This is not typically a pretty mineral, and this will not win any beauty contest, but here are several habits of distinct crystals, albeit with some tiny zones of damage. A good reference specimen of a rare mineral that is also very affordable.
Celestite with Calcite
stock #A7-025-220
Chittanango Falls, Fenner Township, Madison County
New York, United States
4.2 x 3.2 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $300
pre Tucson 2015 update

A great example of the now rare Chittanago Falls NY Celestite. A classic location the hard Dolomite of this famed NY locale hides some excellent Celestite which are quite prized. Few are found now and most that do turn up are damaged or poorly exposed. This old piece is from the Larry White collection, it is pristine, esthetic and quite fine.
Fluorite with Phantoms
stock #ALEC-20-157
Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
8.2 x 6.7 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
pre Tucson 2015 update

Excellent form and sharp edged cubes typify this fine old Cave in Rock Fluorite. In excellent condition and with a nice contrasting matrix of tiny golden Sphalerites and white Calcites. Moderate backlighting makes this glow deep purple hues and the phantoms are very evident. Backside contacting is typical but the 3 dimensional presentation is much better than usual.
Azurite on Anglesite over Cerussite etc.
stock #ALEC-24-393
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.5 x 2.1 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $2900
pre Tucson 2015 update

An exceptional Tsumeb specimen that is both esthetic and really different. Ex. Sussmann Collection, this has the form of blocky Cerussite crystals that are fully encased in smaller Anglesite crystals. Some of the Anglesite shows inclusions and overgrowths of Malachite and Linarite. The Azurite crystals are the finishing touch and these are very fine, electric blue and with top luster. The whole displays very well, the color contrast is excellent and I have never seen this style presentation in any other Tsumeb piece.
Calcite & Quartz (cumberland habit)
stock #ALEC-20-155
Sa Ducessa Mine, Oridda, Carbonia-Iglesias Prov.
Sardinia, Italy
5 x 3.7 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

An odd yet attractive very old Sardinian Calcite specimen with a second generation of Quartz in "Cumberland Habit". The quartz also has numerous inclusion and some is in stacked groupings. There is considerable hematite on and in many crystals here adding nice color contrast. In good condition and attractive, most everything is doubly terminated.
Zircon (Hydrous)- var Malacon
stock #13.1.352
Ambatofotsy Pegmatite, Soavinandriana, Itasy Region
Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
3.7 x 3.6 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $95
pre Tucson 2015 update

A rare altered, hydrous variety of Zircon called Malacon, here in distinct crystals. The curved faces and the pearly luster are distinctive from the find a few years ago in Madagascar. No damage and viewable from all sides, a nice example.
Datolite
stock #ALEC-29-059
Charcas
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
6.4 x 6 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
pre Tucson 2015 update

Great color and luster, this is a Datolite from Mexico that looks much more like a good Russian specimen. From a small find in late 2013, this has the form, clarity and quality of the top few percent. Some edge chipping/ contacts is inevitable but overall in very good condition.
Variscite with Wardite crystals etc.
stock #13.1-362
Little Green Monster Mine, Clay Canyon, Fairfield
Utah, United States
5.8 x 4 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $120
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unpolished Variscite etc. nodule showing many of the associated species (Crandellite etc) and having a fine vug of blue green Wardite in distinct crystals. Often Wardite from the Fairfield area is white or grey, this is a much more attractive color and the crystals are very sharp, clear and much better than typical.
