Fluorapatite (Pink) with Albite
stock #15.1-586
La Marina Mine, Pauna
Boyaca, Colombia
1.8 x 1.4 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
Fall 2015

The Colombian pink Apatites from La Marina are very desirable but very hard to get in any quality. There have been no new finds for the past few years, and the La Marina mine is currently idle. This is an older piece from the 2003-4 era, and has good color. Some of the later Apatites were found to fade and became colorless, but this is the older color-stable type. Minor edge wear is noted mostly on the backside, but overall in very good shape for one of these.
Fluorite and Spessartine w. Hyalite
stock #15.1-592
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
Fujian, China
3.7 x 2.6 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $160
Fall 2015

The Tongbei finds about 10 years ago produced a few excellent Fluorites in several colors and habits. When associated with Spessartine as is this example, it makes for nice esthetics. A good example here in fine condition, the Fluorite is an elongated octahedron and has clear zoning, slightly etched faces and is transparent.
Fluorite
stock #15.1-529
Hilton Mine, Scardale
Cumbria, England
5.6 x 4.1 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
May 2015

A classic English Hinton Fluorite that shows the nice yellow color, glass clear crystals and has a nice contrast with the matrix of smaller Fluorites. In very good condition as seen and a piece that can be shown from several angles. These have gotten much harder to find in decent quality.
Quartz v. Amethyst unusual hoppered terminations.
stock #ALEC-32-051
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
6.1 x 5.7 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
May 2015

A very odd and pretty example of Amethyst crystals that instead of a typical pyramid termination have a hexagonal hole on the tips. Hard to photograph but impressive in person the walls of the hollow crystals are thin and transparent, showing complex growth structures and bright luster. In fine condition with no visible damage, a rare and special example from the Tamil Nadu area.
Langite
stock #15.1-531
Bedford United Mine, Tavistock Hamlets, Tavistock
Devon, England
4.3 x 4.1 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $130
May 2015

A small, brilliant colored English Langite from the classic location of Tavistock. Bright sparkling crystals and a nice contrast to the matrix too. In fine condition there looks to be some Caledonite (not verified) intermixed in the Langites, but it could also be an unusual Brochantite which is more common from the locale.
Olivenite- well xl'd
stock #15.1-433
Wheal Gorland
Cornwall, England
5.5 x 3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
May 2015

A really good Cornish Olivenite with fine color and contrast to the matrix. There are several other Copper secondaries on the Quartz matrix that add nice color. The crystal druze is sizable and in excellent condition. Classic old material that displays well.
Staurolite
stock #ALEC-10-1074
Coray, Finistere
Brittany, France
10 x 7.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $165
May 2015

A French Staurolite on matrix from an old collection, the crystals are up to 2.7 CM in size. There are several penetrations that seem to be twinned, and the crystals protrude nicely from the matrix. A sizable piece with many crystals, displays very well.
Libethenite -rosette on matrix
stock #15.1-506
Nkana Mine, Kitwe, Kitwe District
Copperbelt Province, Zambia
4.5 x 34.4 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $280
May 2015

A rosette of sharp and lustrous Libethenite crystals in a shallow vug that shows very well. We have looked carefully to see if there were any repairs or glue on this, it appears to be intact and undamaged. One of the more esthetic examples I have seen the rosette is 1.3 CM in size. An older specimen of a habit that has not been available for some time, the crystal forms are quite distinct and have a good deep green color.
