Hale Crek Mine, Mad River Rock, Trinity County
8.1 x 6.9 x 6.4 CM (cabinet)
Late Summer 2018
Superb old USA (California) Inesite with large and very fine crystals lining an open pocket. Hale Creek Inesites could still be collected about 45-50 years ago, but not recently, they are a US classic, rarely available in this quality. This specimen is in fine condition, with prismatic crystals up to 1.7 CM but most are about 1.2 CM (which is huge for the locale and specie). Displays well from several angles, the open vug shows several differing habits and radiating clusters. Ex William Hladysz and Ara Dildillian collections, this is by far the best California Inesite I have seen for sale in 20 years.
