Staurolite - Historic specimens
stock #21.1-067-(2954)
Mine Hill
Georgia, United States
2.8 x 2.2 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $150
Early summer 2021

A pair of sharp, complete Staurolite crystals that were added to the Levison Collection in 1898. These are labeled as from from Mine Hill, Georgia. This not a known locale but these do look much like some of the more recent Fannin County materials. One is twinned and the other is a single crystal, sharp textbook form. A photocopy of the Levison Ledger page is included as is his printed and handwritten label with the date.

Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #18.1-555
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
4.4 x 3.8 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $450
Early summer 2021

Gem clear "windowpane" type crystals perched on matrix that is sprinkled with tiny Mimetite balls. Excellent dark orange-red color and very sharp edges on the Wulfenites which are in excellent condition with no visible damage. From the 2018 find that made big news at this locale, unfortunately the zone was very small and soon exhausted, there have not been more found since. This looks much more like a Red Cloud (Arizona USA) specimen than anything from Mexico. On close exam it is seen than this habit and find are distinctly unique and not exactly like any other Wulfenites.

Quartz (green phantoms of Fuchsite)
stock #AX-11-376
Anovitra, Ambatofinandrahana
Fianarantsoa Province, Madagascar
7.7 x 4.7 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Early summer 2021

Sharp crystals of transparent Quartz with clearly seen green phantoms below the terminations. From a 2018 find in Madagascar that was different from previous finds. This discovery had transparent terminations on a milky shaft and the phantoms were close to the tips so much more visible than in any other finds. In fine condition, there have not been more of this quality found since.
