Vanadinite
stock # 7.AE-247
Mibladen, Midelt, Khenifra Province, Meknes-Tafilald
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
3.2 x 3.3 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $230
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice specimen with large, stout crystals from the greatest locale of all time for Vanadinite, Mibladen. At 2.9 CM, the biggest crystal is quite large for the specie and is well perched on the smaller supporting crystals. Good color and luster, the backsides of the crystals are also complete but have the typical tan color, so the bright red is the logical display side.
Orpiment and Calcite
stock #Alec-15-207
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
8 x 6.8 x 7.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Sharp white Calcite scalenohedrons make a wonderful contrast to the orange red crystals of Orpiment. The Orpiment is sharp and well terminated with translucent to gemmy area. In excellent condition for such a delicate mineral, this displays well from all sides. These came on the market 8-9 years ago but have been getting scarce now, especially in this higher quality specimen. From the Shields Flynn/ Frances Trafford collection.
Beryl Var. Emerald

price: $350
pre Tucson 2015 update

Small but absolutely perfect, glass clear and bright green Emerald crystal from the famed Chivor mine. Two perfectly terminated crystals are side by side are see-thru gemmy. The glassy luster and clarity make this hard to do justice to in a photo, it is better in person. Vintage about 1990, ex Larry White collection.

stock #14.1-063
Boulby Mine, Loftus
North Yorkshire, England
3 x 2.3 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)

A colorful bright sparkling thumbnail from the classic English locale of Boulby. The Boracite is in two generations and two colors, the later is gem clear blue crystals resting on the earlier green. The rare mineral Hilgardite is in bright orange crystals in singles and clusters. By far the worlds best Hilgardite comes from this mine and these are fine crystals for the specie.

Serandite with Analcime
stock #12.1-238
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
3.7 x 2.6 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $225
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sharp salmon-pink Serandite crystal is almost completely covered with small, sparkling gem clear analcimes much like a coating of ice. The few larger Analcimes growing from some faces are the typical milky white and are a nice contrast to the Serandite. A very nice example from mining over 30 years ago at Mt St Hillaire. Excellent condition.
Calcite over Stibnite
stock #13.1-233
Quincy Mine, Hancock, Houghton County
Guizoh, China
7 x 5.2 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $90


An odd, strangely attractive specimen with an interesting form, This is a series of fingerlike growths studded with scalenohedral calcite crystals. These have grown over slender crystals of Stibnite which are now completely covered by the reddish calcite. It is possible to see on the bottom where this was broken off the Stibnites remain.
Prehnite (classic alpine crystal habit )
stock #14.1-194
Cavradi, Tavetsch, Grissons
Grischun (Grisons), Switzerland
3.2 x 2.4 x 2.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $240
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very distinctive thumbnail with excellent crystal form that is typical of fine alpine Prehnite. Ex. Wendy Melanson's great thumbnail collection, her locale lists Cavradi Gorge Tavetsch, however it is likely that this came from Tavetsch but maybe not in Cavradi itself, but it right for that area. No matter what this is an elegant piece showing well crystallized colorless "pinwheel" forms in an attractive 3 dimensional arrangement. No damage, great luster.
SOLD Scheelite on Muscovite
stock #SOLD 6.2-112
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
9 x 5.7 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

One of the worlds greatest localities is Xuebaoding, China and its most desirable mineral is Scheelite. This piece has a very sharp 5.1 CM crystal well perched and exposed on a Muscovite matrix that also has a few smaller Scheelites. The color is a pleasing mid orange-yellow, so it is not the deep orange red that sells for astronomical prices. Otherwise, the luster is a bright "wet" look, and it displays well. Fine condition overall, the esthetics are also well above average. From 2004 vintage finds, this quality is much harder to get now.
