Beryl V. Aquamarine hollow crystal on Clevelandite w. Hydroxl-herderite
stock #0811-JM-1450
Dassu, Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
6.8 x 4.5 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

Unusual habit Aquamarine ex. John Marshall Collection. The main crystal is 3.4 CM across the termination face, with an etched cavity in the center that bells out inside the crystal. The there is also a 2.2 CM Hydroxy-herderite crystal on the back side as a bonus. Good condition and a very nice "oddity" from this prolific region.
Elbaite- large dark green Tourmaline with
stock #10.1-450
Barra de Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
9.9 x 2.2 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $760
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very lustrous, glassy tourmaline that has zoning of dark-mid green to a nearly black green. It also sports a fibrous "cats eye" type structure best seen near the base. An older Schortmann's Minerals specimen (with label) that dates this back to the 1940's. Classic habit and form from Barra Do Salinas, few of these survived cutting as the cats eyes they show were quite desirable. Very minor chipping is noted with magnification but the overall quality is fine. The complex multiple terminations and deep striations give this a eyecatching quality.
Sphalerite (red-black crystals) on Calcite with Fluorite
stock #A7-019-831
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
8.4 x 6 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
pre Tucson 2015 update

An attractive Sphalerite crystal cluster that has flower-like form is perched on a contrasting matrix. The color looks black at first glance but with strong lighting it is a translucent dark red-brown (rubyjack) color. The luster is extra glassy bright and the quality is fine. The front of the specimen is in excellent shape damage wise, the back and one edge is contacted which is not seen from the display side. Sphalerite specimens from Elmwood are common, but esthetic specimens of this caliber are quite rare to find. A lot of display impact for the size.
Pyromorphite - Classic Locale, ex Frank Wright Collection
stock #14.1-067
Wheatley Mines, Pheonixville
Pennsylvania, United States
5 x 3.5 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $325
pre Tucson 2015 update

An olive green crystal plate from this venerable old locale that is densely covered with free standing crystals. The condition is overall excellent but with magnification some very small damage can be found, mostly at the edges where this was removed. The Pyromorphites themselves show several habits including hoppered and tapered terminations. This specimen is a little lighter in hue than is most Pheonixville specimens, but it has the classic luster that is distinctive.
Amethyst -zoned crystals
stock #13.1-129
Amatitlan, Municipio de Zumpango del Rio
Guerrero, Mexico
4.1 x 2.1 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $285
pre Tucson 2015 update

An attractive miniature showing the distinctive habit of Guerrero Amethyst. This shows both the classic esthetic arrangement and shape of crystals with the zoning that sets these apart from all other Amethyst. In good condition, there is some chipping to be found with magnification so this is not for the perfectionist. Far better than average and much more affordable than larger pieces. Vintage about 1955.
Fluorite (phantom cube)
stock #13.1-125
Huangshaping, Chenzoh prefecture
Hunan, China
6 x 5.1 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

A sharp phantom cube of transparent Fluorite perched on the edge of a thin matrix plate. From the find of 2002 at the little known location of Huangshaping. This is a very fine, clean specimen that displays well. This small mine is located close to the much larger famed Hsinghuapu locale but the look and quality are completely different. Very good value.
Wulfenite on calcite (classic locale)
stock #Alec 29-062
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
5.1 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $750
pre Tucson 2015 update

A bright, sharp and well formed Red Cloud Wulfenite with intense color. The main crystal is in excellent condition even with 10x magnification. Overall in fine shape however there are some chips on a few much smaller crystals that are not easy to see. The matrix is mostly crystallized calcite on fluorite, an unusual association for this venerable locale. The brilliant color and fine 3-D form on this piece sets it apart from the average.
Plumbogummite with Pyromorphite
stock #14.1-444
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi, China
5.5 x 3.4x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
pre Tucson 2015 update

China recently produced a spectacular find of Plumbogummite that is by far the most attractive of this usually drab mineral. The best pieces are a replacement of Pyromorphite crystals with a blue green hue. This piece is a delicate jackstraw collection of slender crystals forming a nest. This is almost pure Plumbogummite with a little Cerussite but on some broken crystals that show unaltered Pyromorphite cores. Very fine form for this rare mineral and quite esthetic.
