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.
Fluorite (elongated etched crystal)
stock #Alec-28-019
Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.1 x 5.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


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. This is a particularly fine example of the distinctive habit, it has a main elongated crystal with very sharp edges resting on a jumble of smaller etched yet sharp crystals all having the same yellow core. Dark purple color that shows clear phantoms when backlit. Fine condition, displays well and an uncommon locale.
SOLD Elbaite -double terminated, multi colored
stock #SOLD A7-260-654
Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill,Mesa Grande District, San Diego County
California, United States
5.9 x 2.4 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $0


A classic tourmaline from the Himalaya mine finds in the 1970s. Ex Larry White collection, this double terminated crystal has great luster, form and rich multi-color. Sharp and in overall excellent condition, this is far better than average. The large crystal is also unrepaired (many of this size were repaired). Some tiny chips not easily noticed are on small attached crystals, so we can not call it absolutely perfect but it is quite close. This can be displayed so that no flaws are visible.
Boothite with Arsenolite (very rare hydrated Copper Sulfate)
stock #Alec 12-599
Baker, San Bernadino County
California, United States
6.5 x 3.6 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $575


Most "very Rare" minerals tend to be very tiny and very drab. This is an exception with bright blue sparkling masses of well formed crystals mixed with platy white Arsenolite crystals. This is similar to Chalcanthite but it has 7 H2O included making it "fully hydrated". This was part of the Ruth and Andy Palmer species research collection and was studied by Joe Mandarino. Almost never seen for sale and an exceptional example!
Rhodochrosite with minor Sphalerite, Pyrite, Quartz
stock #A7-548
Sweet Home Mine, Alma
Colorado, United States
2.6 x 1.7 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330


A well composed Rhodo thumbnail with great color from the Larry White collection. The piece is mostly just 3 rhombs juxtaposed with almost no matrix. Good translucency and luster this is a nice yet affordable example. The cost of any good Sweet Home specimens has consistently gone up every year, and since "they ain't makin 'em no more" the supply is now very small.
Brochantite- (rare stout crystals)
stock #Alec-3-481
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
4.9 x 3.7 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $775


A well formed and undamaged specimen of the "stout" crystal habit found about 4 years ago at Milpillas. This locale is now world famous for some of the best Azurites, and the very best Brochantites ever seen. The Brochantites were mostly of the delicate "hairy" or fuzzy type, which were beautiful but incredibaly fragile. Only a few of the thicker crystals on matrix came out. The very best pieces sold quickly in the 5 and 6 figure range, few were available for collectors of "normal" means. This is one such- an excellent miniature example that is both esthetic and affordable. The largest crystal is 2.5 CM long and all have excellent luster.
Elbaite (type locale) classic
stock #Alec 7-1042Lw
Island of Elba,
Tuscany, Italy
1.4 x .7 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330


Elbaite from the isle of Elba is one of the great classics of mineralology and good crystals are not common, large crystals are non existant. Ex Larry white collection, this thumbnail has the classic Elba color and is in great condition with a perfect flat termination. Sharp, lustrous, color zoned, this is the original gem Elbaite, every tourmaline collection should have one!
