Sphalerite with Dolomite, Galena
stock #Alec-18-034
Huaron Mines, Huaron Mining District, San jose de Huayllay District
Pasco Department, Peru
5.9 x 5.5 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Dark orange Sphalerite in well formed crystals perched on a contrasting Dolomite in an esthetic arrangement. This comes from a small find in the late 70's at Huaron that was unique. The crystals are translucent and glow with backlighting, but in normal light this still displays very well as seen here. A good example of this old find that is very rare on the market.
Fluorite- Zoned crystals on Quartz
stock #Alec 19-279
Redstone Quarry, Conway, Carroll County
New Hampshire, United States
8.1 x 7.4 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
pre Tucson 2015 update

A classic old find from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, these rare "pocket" Fluorites are by far the most esthetic of these we have seen. 1960's vintage, this specimen is well formed and has exceptional 3 dimensional presentation. The Fluorites reach 3.5 CM across and have fine and classic zoning with frosted faces that makes this locality distinctive. Aside from the famed Wise mine in southwestern New Hampshire this defunct quarry is the next best New England Fluorite locale and this is perhaps the best example.
Villiaumite with Hackmanite
stock #14.1-448
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
7.7 x 3.3 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $190
pre Tucson 2015 update

Villiaumite is one of the more colorful yet rare minerals found at Mt St Hillaire and a handful of other Alkalai complexes. This is a very nice and very bright red example. These cubes are good sized (about 1 CM) rare for for bright red crystals, larger crystals have been found here but they are brownish. The matrix has many other alkali minerals included in it as is typical from this locale. Sadly now the quarry is closed there will be no more of these.
Amethyst with Apophyllite and Hubeite
stock #7AE-545
Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper Mine), Edong District, Daye County, Huangs
Hubei, China
7.3 x 3.4 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $175


A very neat, clean and colorful example of this find from about 8 years ago at Fengjiashan. In fine condition the Amethyst shows multiple growth steps and has excellent transparency and luster. The tabular apophyllite covering 3 faces has nice crystals to 1.5 CM and a dusting of micro minerals including Hubeite.
Calcite on Sibnite
stock #6.2-902
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi, China
6.9 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $150


Aa attractive and rather unusual habit of Calcite on Stibnite from the less well known locality of Nandan. The main Calcite is a sharp scalenohedron 3.5 CM long that seems to be heavily included by stibnite giving it a dark, cloudy interior. The overall composition and esthetics are very good, there is nice contrast with the metallic stibnite crystals. Not typical, this is quite differenet from other such combos I have seen.
Beryl (V. Goshenite) on Schorl
stock #Alec 14-277
Erongo mountain, Usakos and Omaruru districts
Erongo region, Namibia
5 x 4.6 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $550


Bright gem clear white Beryl crystals are studded on a 3 dimensional array of shiny black Schorl crystals. In excellent condition, this is a fine Erongo specimen and far better in person. 2012 vintage, this material has not been seen since.
Fluorite with inclusions of Chalcopyrite
stock #A 18-153
Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub District, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.5 x 6.8 x4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


A sharp multi-color pastel Fluorite with good clarity and phantoms. The crystals show excellent growth patterns and have sharp crystals of golden Chalcopyrite included inside. This looks fantastic with good lighting. A classic locale, the Denton Mine once produced a lot of good Fluorites, but is now gone forever. Some color changing based on light source, the core color is a pale yellow with blue to purple outer phantoms.
Cordierite (Var. Cerasite or Kikuchi flowers)
stock #14.1-092
Kameoka City, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki Region
Honshu Island, Japan
2.5 x 2 x 2 CM (largest of 5) (thumbnail)
price: $150


A pretty selection of five specimens of the classic "flower stones" that are a rare trapiche habit of Cordierite, partly altered to Cerasite and or Muscovite. These have always been prized in Japan and are a very nice mineral oddity in the rest of the world. Several different colors and habits are included in this grouping, not often seen for sale in the west.
