Mimetite (orange coral type)
stock #15.1-545
Chah Milleh Mine, Anarak Dist., Nain Co.
Esfahan Province, Iran
6.9 x 5.8 x 1.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Fall 2015

The red-orange Mimetites from Chah Milleh Mine made a big splash last year as a new find. There were not very many and these were mostly gobbled up quickly. A few have this unusual "coral-like" structure that seems to be caused by several generations of botryoidal deposits and casts after a tabular mineral (Wulfenite?). Whatever the cause these are very attractive, have excellent color and form. This is an well above average example and comparitively affordable.
Cerussite reticulated
stock #15.1-547
Broken Hill, Yancowinna County
New South Wales, Australia
5.9 x 3.1 x 1.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Fall 2015

A reticulated Cerussite from Broken Hill that has a small bit of green color included in some areas. Attractive and a bit different for the locale, this is not perfect on the outer edges but the main snowflake areas are quite fine.
Calcite
stock #15.1-512
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
7.1 x 6 x 1.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $185
Fall 2015

As simple gem-clear Calcite twin sits lightly connected to a flat limestone matrix. The Calcite shows zoning from Cognac to almost colorless. Sharp, perfect and incredibly lustrous. A small and quite affordable example of what has made Elmwood famous for world class Calcites! A second smaller Calcite is on the matrix that has a cleave on it, but it is hidden behind the main Calcite. Choice.
Chalcedony ps. after Aragonite
stock #ALEC-12-219
Las Plumas, Martires Dept.
Chubut, Argentina
6.8 x 6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $150
Fall 2015

This quite attractive Psuedomorph has a lot of good provenance, ex Ed Swoboda, Carter Rich, George Loud, and William Hladyz. The shape of the large Aragonite crystals are sharply preserved and the color looks much like an Agate more so than Chalcydony. This is almost a perfect floater and despite a few very minor chips that are not easy to find the condition is still very fine overall. Classic older Pseudomorph not often available and rarely in anything close to this quality and esthetic.
Apatite (Carbonate Apatite -Collophane) ps after Vivianite with Calcite
stock #ALEC-12-602
Astillero Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
9.3 x 6 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
Fall 2015

From the famed Pseudomorph suite assembled by Ed Swoboda, this is a very odd but well formed piece. The identification was confirmed by the Smithsonian (as noted on the old label). The shape of the original Vivianite crystals is perfectly preserved and the exterior is overgrown with tiny clear Calcites that have bright luster. This is Carbonate Apatite and has replaced crystals up to 4 CM in size.
Fluorite w. Galena ex. Johansson coll
stock #15.1-648
Blackdene Mine, Weardale
Durham, England
9.5 x 8.6 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $180
Fall 2015

An old well formed and classic Blackdene Fluorite from the collection of Warren Johansson. Warren obtained this piece in an exchange with Harvard in 1938, so it is clearly a vintage specimen. The cubes reach 4.2 CM in diameter and have good sharp edges. Several crystals display internal cleavage planes but the exterior shapes are intact and in quite good condition. Minor edge wear is noted on the outside edges but the main crystals in the center are undamaged. The Galena is on the reverse side so will not be in any logical dispaly orientation.
Azurite w. Malachite
stock #17.1-AX-3-052
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
4 x 2.9 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $1450
Fall 2015

Esthetic Milpillas Azurite with a fine sharp, lustrous large main crystal nicely perched atop. From early finds vintage 2007, this displays great and the architecture is especially attractive. Milpillas is now famed as perhaps the greatest source of Azurites in history, which is saying a lot. There are many good pieces on the market and the prices vary from incredibly cheap to seven figures. Finding a fine yet affordable specimen that will stand out from the crowd is not easy. This is that sort of piece.
Apatite on Quartz
stock #15.1-342
Panasquieira Mines, Panasquiera Covilha
Castelo Branco District, Portugal
4.5 x 2 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $600
Fall 2015

A very choice piece, this is a glass clear quartz crystal hosting several purple gem Apatites. The quartz is perfectly terminated, overall sharp and impressive in person, in very fine condition. Strong magnification reveals some tiny Siderite crystals. The Apatites have some slight zonation and have top luster. Not a typical Panasqueira specimen, and far more esthetic than average.
