Selenite (clear gypsum)
stock #Alec 10-419
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.1 x 3.1 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
pre Tucson 2015 update

Glass clear and super sharp, a single gem clear crystal perched on a gossan matrix. Classic locale, this is vintage 1970's ex. Wm. Hladysz collection. The clarity and size is impressive as is the overall condition, the crystal is contacted at the back where attached to the matrix but otherwise in fine shape. For a delicate mineral this is a textbook perfect example, and better in person.
Pyromorphite- Exceptional for locale
stock #0701-JM-XX
Little Giant Mine, Mullan, Coeur d' Arlene District, Shoshone County
Idaho, United States
11.3 x 6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A big and well crystallized Pyromorphite from a little known location, the Little Giant Mine. This specimen was in the famed Pyro suite of John Marshall, the best example from Little Giant he had been seen in his 60 years of Pyromorphite collecting. Later discoveries nearby at Bunker Hill mine are much more well known, but this locality had a few fine specimens before then. This is one of them and is if very good condition, has 2 generations of growth with crystals reaching 7mm densely covering the matrix.
Stibnite -Flattened prismatic crystals with Barite, Quartz
stock #Alec- 16-162
Cavnic (Kapnic)
Maramures, Romania
8.8 x7.7 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nicely composed, lustrous and sharp Roumanian specimen from the classic Cavnic mines. Since this locality closed the unique habits of Cavnic Stibnites have become sought after. This is in very good condition overall, but for a perfectionsist this is not perfect. Edge damage where this was removed is noted,magnification reveals more tiny chips and contacts elsewhere but most are less than a mm in size. Some rough looking terminations are not damaged but are the more hackly type nestled in with the prismatic ones. The main areas are mostly undamaged, and the most prominent crystals are fine. This displays well the rare flat-habit metallic Stibnites in an esthetic array on contrasting matrix. Affordable with nice form and reasonable shape for and older, delicate mineral.
Carrollite
stock #Alec 12-271
KOV open cut, Kamoto, Kolwezi
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.2 x 1.9 x 2.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $250
pre Tucson 2015 update

A quite fine, sharp, lustrous, undamaged and well positioned Carrollite crystal on matrix. Good Carrollites have gotten hard to find. The great discoveries in the Congo were the best by far worldwide, but no fine pieces have come out in years, even damaged examples are scarce. This specimen though small has fine form with nice growth patterns on the faces. The crystal is 1.4 CM across.
Torbernite (old classic- type locale)
stock #0797-JM-3610
Johanngeorgenstadt
Saxony, Germany
6.7 x 4.3 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine, old German Torbernite from the Dr. Moritz Lechner collection (his number 7258 is attached), This important collection was begun in the 1850's and the number indicates this was likely added in about 1890. The collection was built from other significant old collections he purchased during those years, so this piece may be even older. The first descriptions of the mineral from here date to the 1770's. Ex John Marshall collection, this piece has a good relatively dense coverage of sharp plates with a nice deep green color. This locale is known for great Mimetites and some rarities, but it is also the type locality for Torbernite.
Grossular -Gem clear, with Clinoclore
stock #17.AL-498
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 3.6 x 1 CM (small miniature)
price: $825
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very bright, clear and perfect little gem from the great Jeffrey Mine. A fine small miniature / toenail, this could also be trimmed to make a competition thumbnail. The matrix is a mix of clinochlore crystals and small clear grossular that are pale pink or colorless. The main Garnet is cinnamon orange-red, well positioned on the plate and is complete all around. You can see through it perfectly. Even before this legendary locale closed for good the garnets had become scarce and very expensive when of top quality.This is far better in person and a real bargain for the quality and esthetics.
Pyromorphite
stock #0805-JM-445
Kamioka Mine, Hida-shi, Gifu Prefecture, Chuba Region,
Honshu Island, Japan
6.3 x 3.9 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

A rich crystallized plate of uncommon Japanese Pyromorphite, ex John Marshall collection. John obtained this specimen about 1962 as he was building his famed suite of worldwide Pyros. It is likely much older. These are rare to see on the market, and quite prized when available. The crystal coverage is dense over a 5 CM area, with a nice olive green color. Maximum size of individual crystals is 6 mm, the average perhaps 3-4mm with moderate luster. The backside of the specimen is also covered with crystals, tho not as dense and with smaller individuals so it is the back. A skilled trimmer could make 2 specimens if wanted. The condition of the front side crystals is mostly good but magnification shows a few broken crystals. Despite this it is a fine display piece from an uncommon locale.
Wulfenite with Fluorite and Calcite
stock #Alec 29-63
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
5.2 x 3.4 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $420
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, sharp, complete Wulfenite perched on a contrasting matrix that includes pale purple Fluorite in small spheres. An unusual combination from the famed Red Cloud Mine, this is quite esthetic and eyecatching. The main Wulfenite is 1.3 CM across and deep orange-red. Displays well, no eye visible damage but some very tiny contacts noted at 10X magnification. Good value.
