SOLD Andradite on Hedenbergite
stock #SOLD A-10-575
Serifos Island, Cyclade Islands
Kyklades Prefecture, Aegean Islands, Greece
5.1 x 4.3 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

A wonderfully formed miniature that shows well the Serifos habit with color zoning on the Garnet. In undamaged condition, this displays well from every angle. The garnets are up to 8MM in size in a 4.3 CM cluster. They are not gemmy (gem examples usually have little or no color zoning on edges) but they do have a great display character.
Mimetite
stock #14.1-065
Elura Mine, Cobar, Robinson Co.
New South Wales, Australia
3.2 x 2.7 x 1.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $275
pre Tucson 2015 update

A good toenail sized Mimetite from the Elura Mine with nice structure and definition. The top Elura Mimetites were once some of the best ever found, this piece is not of that calibre but it is nice and not crazy expensive either. Very clean condition damage wise, the crystals reach 1.2 CM and show color zoning. Magnification shows a second generation of smaller crystals and a coating of yellow to red brown has formed on all the crystals. It seems they are yellow to green and more glassy underneath the coating, which might be removable with solvents. A good value, these are now getting scarce.
Elbaite -rare fibrous-zoned achroite, verdelite and indicolite crystal
stock #Alec-7-150-504
Aracuai, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.9 x 1.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

An very unusual older specimen from a find in the 1970's at Aracuai. The tourmaline crystal is both etched and prismatic with a large fibrous zone in the middle. The color zoning is unusual and includes the uncommon colorless (achroite) variety. Ex Larry White collection, this is an attractive oddity and very different from other finds of fibrous Tourmalines. In good but not perfect condition, there is contacting and chips but not badly noticable from some angles.
Selenite (clear gypsum)
stock #Alec 10-419
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.1 x 3.1 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
pre Tucson 2015 update

Glass clear and super sharp, a single gem clear crystal perched on a gossan matrix. Classic locale, this is vintage 1970's ex. Wm. Hladysz collection. The clarity and size is impressive as is the overall condition, the crystal is contacted at the back where attached to the matrix but otherwise in fine shape. For a delicate mineral this is a textbook perfect example, and better in person.
Pyromorphite- Exceptional for locale
stock #0701-JM-XX
Little Giant Mine, Mullan, Coeur d' Arlene District, Shoshone County
Idaho, United States
11.3 x 6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A big and well crystallized Pyromorphite from a little known location, the Little Giant Mine. This specimen was in the famed Pyro suite of John Marshall, the best example from Little Giant he had been seen in his 60 years of Pyromorphite collecting. Later discoveries nearby at Bunker Hill mine are much more well known, but this locality had a few fine specimens before then. This is one of them and is if very good condition, has 2 generations of growth with crystals reaching 7mm densely covering the matrix.
Stibnite -Flattened prismatic crystals with Barite, Quartz
stock #Alec- 16-162
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
8.8 x7.7 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nicely composed, lustrous and sharp Roumanian specimen from the classic Cavnic mines. Since this locality closed the unique habits of Cavnic Stibnites have become sought after. This is in very good condition overall, but for a perfectionsist this is not perfect. Edge damage where this was removed is noted,magnification reveals more tiny chips and contacts elsewhere but most are less than a mm in size. Some rough looking terminations are not damaged but are the more hackly type nestled in with the prismatic ones. The main areas are mostly undamaged, and the most prominent crystals are fine. This displays well the rare flat-habit metallic Stibnites in an esthetic array on contrasting matrix. Affordable with nice form and reasonable shape for and older, delicate mineral.
Carrollite
stock #Alec 12-271
KOV open cut, Kamoto, Kolwezi
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.2 x 1.9 x 2.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $250
pre Tucson 2015 update

A quite fine, sharp, lustrous, undamaged and well positioned Carrollite crystal on matrix. Good Carrollites have gotten hard to find. The great discoveries in the Congo were the best by far worldwide, but no fine pieces have come out in years, even damaged examples are scarce. This specimen though small has fine form with nice growth patterns on the faces. The crystal is 1.4 CM across.
Torbernite (old classic- type locale)
stock #0797-JM-3610
Johanngeorgenstadt
Saxony, Germany
6.7 x 4.3 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine, old German Torbernite from the Dr. Moritz Lechner collection (his number 7258 is attached), This important collection was begun in the 1850's and the number indicates this was likely added in about 1890. The collection was built from other significant old collections he purchased during those years, so this piece may be even older. The first descriptions of the mineral from here date to the 1770's. Ex John Marshall collection, this piece has a good relatively dense coverage of sharp plates with a nice deep green color. This locale is known for great Mimetites and some rarities, but it is also the type locality for Torbernite.
