Barite with Malachite inclusions
stock #Alec-19-235
Likasi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
5.9 x 3.2 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $360
pre Tucson 2015 update

Esthetic, sharp green and glassy Barites are perched on a matrix along with some small zones of Malachite in an attractive specimen. From the famous finds of the 1980-90's this is a very colorful Barite with several nice angles for display. In very good condition, there is a little minor chipping mostly on the backside and not noticable without magnification. A good value, these have become quite expensive and few are this attractive.
Topaz with, Elbaite, etc.
stock #14.1-044
Murzinka Mine,Sarapulka Dist., Sverdlovskaya Oblast, Middle Urals
Urals Region, Russia
3.6 x 2.6 x2.4 (small miniature)
price: $195


A small but very esthetic version of classic light blue topaz from the Urals. A gem clear crystal with pale blue color at 1.9 CM in size is neatly perched on contrasting matrix. Small additional crystals of Tourmaline are on the matrix adding interest. Very good condition damage wise this presents nicely.
SOLD Euclase (zoned blue crystal)
stock #SOLD 13.1-335
Lost Hope Mine, Mwami, Karol District
Mashonaland West, Zimbabwe
2 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A sharp, intense deep blue Euclase crystal thumbnail with color zoning. This has distinct blocky form with bright glassy luster and some nice translucency. An old handwritten label is affixed to the backside and can be removed easily. The "Lost Hope Mine" is long known as a source of blue Euclase, but it sounds like a miserable place! Good Euclase can be crazy expensive especially with a deep blue color or gem clarity. This is a nice example for a lot less $$ than comparable Colombian specimens.
Barite (gem clear w. Phantoms)
stock #Alec-213-230
Sulcis
Sardinia, Italy
5.5 x 3.5 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $245


An older, well formed amber colored Barite from the Sulcis area of Caligari in Sardinia. Ex. Mineral Gallery (K. Ward) This shows several good phantoms with backlighting, and has a second generation overgrowth in some areas. Over all in fairly good condition there is contacting on one side and at the rear, small edge chipping is present but not easily seen from the logical display angle. A nice, good color piece from a classic local with the main crystal reaching 4.8 CM.
Cassiterite
stock #4.2-269
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8 x 7.4 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A well placed cluster of lustrous Cassiterite perched on the classic Muscovite matrix of Mt. Xuebaoding. Very nice presentation and contrast, the Cassiterite is just over 4 CM across and in very good condition. By naked eye there is no damage but good magnification shows slight edge chips that are not at all distracting on display.
Willemite & Calcite
stock #9.1-365
Franklin/ Sterling Hill
New Jersey, United States
9.5 x 6 x3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A classic Franklin piece, sharp well developed flesh to reddish color Willemite crystals are well exposed on a calcite matrix. Vivid green and red fluorescence and a very attractive daylight specimen too. Unlike many Willemites this was NOT etched out by acid melting of the calcite so it has a more natural look. The largest crystal has been re-attached to the matrix as is common with this type of specimen. The largest crystal is sharp and complete all around, one crystal in the matrix is cleaved as seen, all others are quite perfect.
Tourmaline (Elbaite/Liddicoatite) "mushroom form"
stock #0810-JM-4200
Luc Yen
Yen Bai Province, Vietnam
4.9 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $580


An early piece of well formed multi-color tourmaline from the now famous deposits at Luc Yen, Vietnam. Very sharp and with glassy luster, this is in superb condition with no visible damage to the crystal. Better in person and a little more gemmy than the photos show. This is quite likely a mix of Elbaite and Liddicoatite but has not been analyzed to determine this. Ex John Marshall collection, this is well above the quality of the vast majority of these Tourmalines, and a nice addition to any suite.
Cerussite
stock #13.1-122
Flux Mine, Patagonia
Arizona, United States
3.6 x 3.1 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $300


A very esthetic, 3 dimensional specimen with well formed delicate crystals from the great finds of the 1980's at the Flux Mine. These are all quite delicate and usually show considerable damage, but this is an unusually pristine example. The sprays of Cerussite contrast with the black matrix very well. This can be packed and shipped but we recommend insurance since it is so delicate. Now an American classic this is a far above average toenail specimen.
