Fluorite
stock #ALEC-20-160
Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
5.1 x 4.5 x 2.1 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $330


A nicely etched "mushroom" like crystal of multi-color Fluorite. An esthetic piece, the core is distinct yellow with a blue overgrowth and a few zones of light purple making for a colorful display. A few tiny Calcites add nice accents. Better in person, this is a nice example with good form, color and in fine condition.
Malachite after Cuprite Crystal
stock #ALEC-20-075
Chessy Copper mine, Chessy-les Mines, Le Bois d'Oingt, Rhone
Rhone-Alpes, France
1.4 x 1.3 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $150


A classic Pseudomorph that is especially sharp and distinctively formed. An old specimen, this is the form and habit that makes these so famed from Chessy and unlike any others worldwide.
SOLD Torbernite (fine tabular crystals)
stock #SOLD Alec-12-256
Shinkolobwe
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
4.8 X 3.2 X 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $0


A delicate matrix specimen of sharp, translucent intense green Torbernite crystals. In exceptional undamaged condition which is remarkable for such a soft mineral. Very good coverage and bright luster, this is an attractive miniature from the significant discovery of about 20 years ago.
Siderite pseudo after Calcite with Galena, Quartz
stock #0157-JM-498
Turt Mine (Ghezuri Mine)
Maramures, Romania
8 x 6.6 x4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $600


A superb example of this very special find with a sharp, sparkling rhomb of Siderite (3.4 CM) perched perfectly on a mix of Quartz, Chalcopyrite, Galena etc. In perfect condition with nice architecture and contrast, this displays very well from every angle. Ex John Marshall collection, these were never common and have been very hard to find now for many years.
Mimetite
stock #13.1-140
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.4 x 3.7 x 2.4 cm (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $195


Very pretty "wet look" bright Mimetite from the late 2012 finds at Mapimi. When these were found everyone compared them to the legendary Mimetites of San Pedro de Coralitos from the 70's. Many considered these to have better form, color and luster. The largest and most perfect specimens sold quickly for huge sums and there have been none since. We have a few smaller, very nice pieces that will not break the bank and display very well. Nearly perfect this specimen has very minor damage that can only be seen with a careful in hand study. Great display impact for the size, this is a fraction of the price for a mediocre San Pedros piece yet has a lot more eye appeal.
Mimetite with Wulfenite
stock #13.1-143
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5 x 4.5 x 3.5 cm (miniature)
price: $300


Very pretty "wet look" bright Mimetite and yellow wulfenite crystals to 1 CM from the late 2012 finds at Mapimi. When these were found everyone compared them to the legendary Mimetites of San Pedro de Coralitos from the 70's. Many considered these to have better form, color and luster. The Wulfenites are an added bonus. The largest and most perfect specimens sold quickly for huge sums and there have been none since. Most piece had a lot of damage and few had good wulfenites. We have a few smaller, very nice pieces that will not break the bank and display very well. This specimen has some damage that can be seen with a careful study, but is limited and far better than 90 percent. Fine display impact for the size, this is a fraction of the price for a mediocre San Pedros piece yet has a lot more eye appeal.
Thomsonite-Ca
stock #ALEC-6-071
Shakur Quarry - Nasik District
Maharashtra, India
9 x 7.5 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $950


A simple yet impressively esthetic Thomsonite with 2 perfect spheres of reddish orange crystals reaching 4 CM across. Very 3 dimensional piece this displays super well from most any angle, there is no damage. We do not offer Indian zeolites unless they are something really special, this is an especially attractive, colorful piece and surprisingly pretty for what is usually a dull white mineral.
Calcite with Sphalerite (ruby jack), and Dolomite, Pyrite etc.
stock #9.1-151
Joplin Field, Tri State District, Jasper County
Missouri, United States
11.8 x 7.7 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


A fine piece from an American classic locality, the Tristate Joplin area. This was once a great producer of good minerals, it is now long gone and high quality pieces have become very scarce. This esthetic and unusually colorful piece has a 6 CM twinned butterscotch calcite contrasting with ruby red Sphalerites. In great condition, 1940s vintage specimen this is piece would have been far better than average back when these were plentiful. Today this quality is almost never seen.
