Prehnite & Grossular
stock #AX-27-164
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.2 x 2.5 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $1400
pre Tucson 2015 update

Bright green Grossular with bright luster is the matrix for the rare blocky habit Prehnite crystals. Displays well from every side, this is simply an esthetic specimen of a rare and special combination. These were found over 20 years ago in a single zone, there were not many good ones then and now they are highly appreciated. A modern classic from the closed and much missed Jeffrey Quarry.

stock #AX-30-072
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
5.1 x 4.3 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $390
pre Tucson 2015 update

One of the most desirable species from Bou Azzer's amazing deposits of rare Cobalt minerals is Wendwilsonite. This well protected vug in a cobalt pink matrix holds a number of small crystals of several species the most significant being these deep red gemmy Wendwilsonite. In fine condition, the crystals reach 6+ mm which is quite large for the specie.

Vesuvianite with Diopside
stock #17.AL-492
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4 x 3.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $2800
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer miniature with top color, great esthetics, sharp gemmy crystals and in perfect condition. This is almost all Vesuvianite with a scattering of gemmy Diopside crystals that add a nice contrast. The deep green Vesuvianites are all with the pointed terminations and have gem clarity. This quality was rare and special when the mine was working but is now almost never available. Far better in person this piece really glows in any display.

Wulfenite w. Calcite
stock #AX-31-100
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
5.5 x 5.4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
pre Tucson 2015 update

Iranian Wulfenite with a distinctive look and sizable crystals in very good condition. From the little know and very old Ahmad Abad Mine, this has a nice decoration of tiny calcite scalenohedrons. Very few of this size are damage free, this on is remarkable and intact. A fine addition to any Wulfenite suite.

Malachite stalactite
stock #15.1-069
L Etoile du Congo Mine, Lubumbashi
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.2 x1.6 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $60
pre Tucson 2015 update

Small but perfect, an older stalactite of bright green Malachite from the Congo. The surface on all sides is a druze of sparkling malachite crystals that makes this very different from the usual smooth Malachite stalactites.

stock #AX-17-311
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.5 x 2.4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $450
pre Tucson 2015 update

An "air clear", sharp, lustrous example of the very desirable Walworth NY Fluorite. These are famed for the clarity and overall esthetics as well as their rarity. Only a few specimens are found each year, some years there are none. This specimen was collected in the 70's by Bill Haladyz, it has the quality that has made these highly collectable. Better in person, this is classic USA Fluorite unlike from anyplace else worldwide.

stock #AX-30-022
Jonas Mine, Itatiaia District, Conselheiro, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.6 x 1.2 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $2600
pre Tucson 2015 update

Jonas Tourmaline is one of the most sought after gem crystal specimens and usually very expensive. This is a richly colored Elbaite, a little different from most Jonas pieces, it looks quite similar to some Cruzieros. This was part of a small suite of verified Jonas specimens and was unique in the parcel. The color at the termination end is deep intense red as would be expected, but the zoning is much rarer. The clarity is gem grade and the small side crystal is a nice esthetic addition. No damage at all, there is a contact one one side face that is not seen from any logical display angle. A fine, classic locale tourmaline with top color and quality.

Elbaite with Lepidolite
stock #AX-30-023
Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill,Mesa Grande District, San Diego County
California, United States
5.6 x 1.4 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $1850

Unusually clear gem grade and with much better than usual color intensity. This is the classic look and habit of the Himalaya mine, but in exceptional condition and quality. No repairs and very close to perfect condition damage-wise (just one chip about .5 millimeter that is clearly not distracting or easy to see). This is an old specimen, far better in person, and far better than most of this size and type.
