Beryl (V. Goshenite) on Schorl
stock #Alec 14-277
Erongo mountain, Usakos and Omaruru districts
Erongo region, Namibia
5 x 4.6 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $550


Bright gem clear white Beryl crystals are studded on a 3 dimensional array of shiny black Schorl crystals. In excellent condition, this is a fine Erongo specimen and far better in person. 2012 vintage, this material has not been seen since.
Fluorite with inclusions of Chalcopyrite
stock #A 18-153
Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub District, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.5 x 6.8 x4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330


A sharp multi-color pastel Fluorite with good clarity and phantoms. The crystals show excellent growth patterns and have sharp crystals of golden Chalcopyrite included inside. This looks fantastic with good lighting. A classic locale, the Denton Mine once produced a lot of good Fluorites, but is now gone forever. Some color changing based on light source, the core color is a pale yellow with blue to purple outer phantoms.
Cordierite (Var. Cerasite or Kikuchi flowers)
stock #14.1-092
Kameoka City, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki Region
Honshu Island, Japan
2.5 x 2 x 2 CM (largest of 5) (thumbnail)
price: $150


A pretty selection of five specimens of the classic "flower stones" that are a rare trapiche habit of Cordierite, partly altered to Cerasite and or Muscovite. These have always been prized in Japan and are a very nice mineral oddity in the rest of the world. Several different colors and habits are included in this grouping, not often seen for sale in the west.
Calcite and Realgar
stock #6.2- 1010
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan, China
9.1 x 6.3 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $225


From the incredible finds of 2002, this piece has a big gemmy lustrous compound twin Calcite crystal that stands nicely on a partial Calcite that makes a perfect base. The front side is dusted with micro xls of opaque white calcite and some brilliant red, gemmy crystals of Realgar that reach 2 CM. There is some chipping on this piece so it is very affordably priced as a result. Still it displays well and has good visual quality.
Rhodochrosite (large single crystal, unsual habit)
stock #A7-544
Mont Saint-Hilaire, Monteregie
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 3 x .3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $320


A big, sharp and well-formed single crystal of the rare "Mt St. Hilaire habit" of Rhodochrosite. Due to the thin nature of this piece it will fit in a thumbnail catagory but it looks bigger in person. The color is a brownish that can glow deep red with a backlight. In good condition damagewise, there are just some very tiny edge chips seen at 10x magnification on the front face and a bigger chip on the backside. For this delicate thin habit this piece is remarkable. A great addition to any good suite of Rhodochrosites or Canadian minerals.
Fluorite- Unusual locale-etched sharp cube
stock #A 28-016
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.9 x 6.6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $475


We all miss the great Fluorites that were once common when the southern Illinois mines were still open. At last something NEW from the region! This little known Hardin County Fluorite locale (the junction area of the Victory and the Crystal Mine) recently produced a very few nice specimens for a small collector team. Here a super sharp 4.5 CM cube is centered on a mix of cubes and etched masses of bright purple and yellow. Nice phantoms are seen on the edges, but the overall impact is very good. One of the better small cabinet specimens from this find.
Carletonite -Very well crystallized, intense blue.
stock #A16-087
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
6 x 5.4 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1875


Carletonite is one of the most desired of Canadian minerals and it is incredibly rare, it ONLY occurs at Mt St. Hillaire which is also the type locality. This is an even more rare cabinet specimen with great esthetics. None has been found for years, and the original find was mostly thumbnail sized crystals or larger cleavage pieces. There were never many cabinet sized specimens and these are now only very rarely for sale. This has crystals to 3 CM (huge for the specie) with rich color and some distinct zoning. The condition is quite good with the typically crude cubes nicely contrasting with the matrix. For any good collection this is a very eyecatching specimen of a significant, rare mineral.
Blodite
stock #Alec 12-600
Soda Lake, Carrizo Plain, San Luis Obispo County
California, United States
4.1 x 4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A good, gemmy, complete all round, sizable monoclinic crystal of Blodite, a mineral not often seen for sale in such nice crystals. In excellent condition, ex Wm. Hlaydz and Andy Palmer collections, This was collected over 25 years ago and kept air tight sealed to prevent humidity degradation. This is a nice example of this mineral from the best find ever made of it.
