Linarite with minor Caledonite
stock #8.AE-835
Mina Dos Adrianas, Zapaltar Mining District, Copiapo Province
Atacama Region, Chile
9.3 x 5.6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Early summer 2021

A sizable, rich and vividly colored Linarite from the small, little known Dos Adrianas Mine. Several other species are present as well in the Quartz matrix including micros of what looks to be Libethenite. However the main interest here is the Linarite, a crust of deep blue crystals in a dense mat. The deeper vugs have some more isolated crystals as well, best seen and appreciated with magnification. Pretty specimen from a locality that is rarely seen on the market.

Rutile - classic USA, large crystal
stock #AX-19-039
Graves Mt., Lincoln Co.
Georgia, United States
6.5 x 5.4 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1100
Early summer 2021

A big, blocky habit Rutile crystal on minimal matrix from the famed Graves Mountain locality in Georgia. Very sharp for this large size with mottled, yet still, lustrous faces and well-defined form. Most larger crystals tend to be more crude or have rounded edges, by comparison this is quite developed. The backside is partly embedded in the matrix and is contacted but the front, sides and termination are well-formed and in very good condition overall. Graves Mountain has a long and colorful history of providing Rutile crystals, it is a classic source. This is an older specimen with a quality not found often, what looks at first to be a black crystal is in strong light a red-brown color with some red highlights at some angles.

Slender and very elongated fingers of Chrysocolla with both bright blue and greenish-yellow colors. Delicate forms that are remarkably all in perfect condition and undamaged.

A classic for Arizona and the USA this piece comes from the Ball Park Bench find. Unlike most other pieces in the find this has minimal Quartz present but there is an outer skin of greenish Chrysocolla and Quartz mix that gives a very unusual appearance. Unique and choice.

A killer thumbnail of stalactitic Chrysocolla. The fingers are all slender, elongated and have thing overgrowths of transparent Quartz. The color is vivid though the Quartz layer and when backlit the piece glows an intense blue. From a recently rediscovered old stock of the 1978 find at the Ray Mine, this is a choice example of a quality rarely available. A classic for Arizona and the USA this piece is from the Ball Park Bench find. The Quartz is a clear transparent overgrowth that has a glassy luster. In incredible, fine condition which is remarkable for these slender and delicate growths. Of the 12 fingers here there is only one tip that is incomplete and one finger on the backside is contacted. Neither of those is visible in normal display, this is a super esthetic US classic thumb.
