Calcite and Realgar
stock #6.2- 1010
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
9.1 x 6.3 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $225


From the incredible finds of 2002, this piece has a big gemmy lustrous compound twin Calcite crystal that stands nicely on a partial Calcite that makes a perfect base. The front side is dusted with micro xls of opaque white calcite and some brilliant red, gemmy crystals of Realgar that reach 2 CM. There is some chipping on this piece so it is very affordably priced as a result. Still it displays well and has good visual quality.
Rhodochrosite (large single crystal, unsual habit)
stock #A7-544
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 3 x .3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $320


A big, sharp and well-formed single crystal of the rare "Mt St. Hilaire habit" of Rhodochrosite. Due to the thin nature of this piece it will fit in a thumbnail catagory but it looks bigger in person. The color is a brownish that can glow deep red with a backlight. In good condition damagewise, there are just some very tiny edge chips seen at 10x magnification on the front face and a bigger chip on the backside. For this delicate thin habit this piece is remarkable. A great addition to any good suite of Rhodochrosites or Canadian minerals.
Fluorite- Unusual locale-etched sharp cube
stock #A 28-016
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.9 x 6.6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $475


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. Here a super sharp 4.5 CM cube is centered on a mix of cubes and etched masses of bright purple and yellow. Nice phantoms are seen on the edges, but the overall impact is very good. One of the better small cabinet specimens from this find.
Carletonite -Very well crystallized, intense blue.
stock #A16-087
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
6 x 5.4 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1875


Carletonite is one of the most desired of Canadian minerals and it is incredibly rare, it ONLY occurs at Mt St. Hillaire which is also the type locality. This is an even more rare cabinet specimen with great esthetics. None has been found for years, and the original find was mostly thumbnail sized crystals or larger cleavage pieces. There were never many cabinet sized specimens and these are now only very rarely for sale. This has crystals to 3 CM (huge for the specie) with rich color and some distinct zoning. The condition is quite good with the typically crude cubes nicely contrasting with the matrix. For any good collection this is a very eyecatching specimen of a significant, rare mineral.
Blodite
stock #Alec 12-600
Soda Lake, Carrizo Plain, San Luis Obispo County
California, United States
4.1 x 4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A good, gemmy, complete all round, sizable monoclinic crystal of Blodite, a mineral not often seen for sale in such nice crystals. In excellent condition, ex Wm. Hlaydz and Andy Palmer collections, This was collected over 25 years ago and kept air tight sealed to prevent humidity degradation. This is a nice example of this mineral from the best find ever made of it.
Fluorite (elongated etched crystal)
stock #Alec-28-019
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.1 x 5.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. This is a particularly fine example of the distinctive habit, it has a main elongated crystal with very sharp edges resting on a jumble of smaller etched yet sharp crystals all having the same yellow core. Dark purple color that shows clear phantoms when backlit. Fine condition, displays well and an uncommon locale.
SOLD Elbaite -double terminated, multi colored
stock #SOLD A7-260-654
Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill,Mesa Grande District, San Diego County
California, United States
5.9 x 2.4 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $0


A classic tourmaline from the Himalaya mine finds in the 1970s. Ex Larry White collection, this double terminated crystal has great luster, form and rich multi-color. Sharp and in overall excellent condition, this is far better than average. The large crystal is also unrepaired (many of this size were repaired). Some tiny chips not easily noticed are on small attached crystals, so we can not call it absolutely perfect but it is quite close. This can be displayed so that no flaws are visible.
Boothite with Arsenolite (very rare hydrated Copper Sulfate)
stock #Alec 12-599
Baker, San Bernadino County
California, United States
6.5 x 3.6 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $575


Most "very Rare" minerals tend to be very tiny and very drab. This is an exception with bright blue sparkling masses of well formed crystals mixed with platy white Arsenolite crystals. This is similar to Chalcanthite but it has 7 H2O included making it "fully hydrated". This was part of the Ruth and Andy Palmer species research collection and was studied by Joe Mandarino. Almost never seen for sale and an exceptional example!
