SOLD Pyromorphite -two toned vivid green
stock #SOLD 14.1-443
Pribam
Bohemia, Czech Republic
2.8 x 2.2 x 2.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

A well formed and brightly colored specimen from this classic, ancient mining region. The crystals show distinct color zoning with vibrant yellow green hue. There are some broken crystals that are visible in the photos so the price is much less than for a perfect piece. Despite that, the esthetics are impressive, this is an eyecatching Pyromorphite from a classic locale that is highly sought after.
Galena with epitaxial octahedrons on cubic crystal.
stock #A7-029-107
Pitcher, Ottawa County
Oklahoma, United States
4.8 x 3.3 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $240
pre Tucson 2015 update

From the classic Tri-state locale of Pitcher, this is an esthetic, textbook perfect specimen with incredible form. The elongated cube main crystal has a fine gunmetal luster and color, but it is wonderfully decorated with oriented octahedral Galenas that are perfectly aligned across the faces. The geometry and architecture of this specimen is incredible, it is in excellent condition. This comes from early mining prior to the 1930's, and is far better in person.
Conichalcite with Hemimorphite
stock #1139-JM-4105
Bristol Silver Mines, Lincoln County
Nevada, United States
11 x 8.3 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very unusual and significant US specimen, a sizable cabinet piece with excellent color and form from this little known locale. Ex John Marshall collection, John's collection catalog notes that he has only ever seen 3 specimens from this location, this being the best. The deep green Conichalcite is composed of small balls with bright "wet" luster that are offset on the lighter colored Hemimorphite. With magnification it seems there may also be some Aurichalcite on this specimen but that is not confirmed. A fine display piece that is as good as any US Conichalcite from anyplace. Better in person.
Quartz, var. Agate, Pseudo after Aragonite crystals

Las Plumas, Martires Dept.
Chubut, Argentina
6.9 x 4.8 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $250
pre Tucson 2015 update

Distinctive hexagonal sixling aragonite form are fully pseudomorphed by quartz in this esthetic arrangement. A few small broken crystals serve to show the internal agate form that has replaced the Aragonite. A classic and complete true Pseudomorph, this material is no longer available, it has been found sporadically for several decades. This has the most sharp detail and best crystal arrangement that I have seen.
Gypsum (v Selenite) prismatic gemmy crystal
stock #Alec-12-565
Fuentes de Ebra, Zaragoza
Aragon, Spain
3.3 x 2 x 1.8 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $125
pre Tucson 2015 update

Glass clear and textbook sharp this is a small but super clean specimen from the alabaster quarries of Fuentes de Ebra. These are very fragile and so there are few that survive in such perfect condition. Since these are so distinctive they are found in many top collection but rarely are for sale in this quality. Unlike many this is not a twined crystal but a single prism that is optically clear.
Beryl V. Aquamarine hollow crystal on Clevelandite w. Hydroxl-herderite

price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

Unusual habit Aquamarine ex. John Marshall Collection. The main crystal is 3.4 CM across the termination face, with an etched cavity in the center that bells out inside the crystal. The there is also a 2.2 CM Hydroxy-herderite crystal on the back side as a bonus. Good condition and a very nice "oddity" from this prolific region.
Elbaite- large dark green Tourmaline with
stock #10.1-450
Barra de Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
9.9 x 2.2 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $760
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very lustrous, glassy tourmaline that has zoning of dark-mid green to a nearly black green. It also sports a fibrous "cats eye" type structure best seen near the base. An older Schortmann's Minerals specimen (with label) that dates this back to the 1940's. Classic habit and form from Barra Do Salinas, few of these survived cutting as the cats eyes they show were quite desirable. Very minor chipping is noted with magnification but the overall quality is fine. The complex multiple terminations and deep striations give this a eyecatching quality.
Sphalerite (red-black crystals) on Calcite with Fluorite
stock #A7-019-831
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
8.4 x 6 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
pre Tucson 2015 update

An attractive Sphalerite crystal cluster that has flower-like form is perched on a contrasting matrix. The color looks black at first glance but with strong lighting it is a translucent dark red-brown (rubyjack) color. The luster is extra glassy bright and the quality is fine. The front of the specimen is in excellent shape damage wise, the back and one edge is contacted which is not seen from the display side. Sphalerite specimens from Elmwood are common, but esthetic specimens of this caliber are quite rare to find. A lot of display impact for the size.
