SOLD Fluorite - with Dolomite, gem clear
stock #SOLD WAM-AX-17
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
2.1 x 1.7 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A perfect, sharp and transparent elongated cube of pale blue to colorless Fluorite. This is heavily encrusted with Dolomite and micro Fluorites, so much of the Fluorite is hidden. A classic New York USA locality this is a cute thumbnail that looks better in person and shows the Walworth matrix "wrapping" very well.

Amazonite (Microcline)
stock #15.1-615
Bear Creek Canyon, Colorado Springs area
Colorado, United States
4.3 x 3.2 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $180


A nice, colorful Amazonite crystal collected by the late Dr. Warren Johansson in 1945 just prior to his induction in the US Army. He had treated himself to a solo mineral collecting tour of the US Western regions while awaiting being shipped out overseas. He wrote a nice memoir about that adventure some 65 years later. The color is a little richer than most seen from this locality, the condition is quite good, there are several clean contacts but there is no damage or bruising. A classic US specie from Colorado, with some extra provenance.

Pyromorphite - vintage classic
stock #AX-35-145
Wheatley Mines, Pheonixville
Pennsylvania, United States
5.9 x 3.3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


A small cabinet of bright drusy Pyromorphite from the famed Wheatley mine (Pennsylvania, USA). The matrix is typical for the mine, the crystals have the dark olive green color that is distinctive to the locale. This specimen is from the collection of WG Levison but unfortunately does not retain any of his labels. This dates to the 1890 era in the collection but the specimen is likely much older, as the mine had closed in the 1860's. The the crystal coverage is quite rich even though the individual crystals are small. With magnification most of these are seen as transparent, sharp and very lustrous.

Wulfenite - USA Classic
stock #21.1-522
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
1.7 x 1.7 x .6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280


Brilliant red single Wulfenite crystal perched on a small bit of matrix. In excellent condition, no chips or damage, the color and luster are both top. Classic specimen from the last mining of this iconic locality, just a nice, clean thumbnail that shows why this mine became a legend in the mineral world.

Fluorite on Celestite
stock #21.1-509
White Rock Quarry, Clay Center, Ottawa County
Ohio, United States
3 x 2.4 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $600


Killer thumbnail (or toenail) of of a single sharp zoned Fluorite esthetically perched on a Celestite crystal. Classic association from the Clay center area (Ohio, USA), this one from the famed White Rock Quarry. Very sharp edged and with no damage, what may look like damage in the photos is mostly internal inclusions. The Fluorite crystal is a flattened cube and also fluorescent. The zoning is subtle in person, best seen when viewed straight on, but it is well-developed and the faces are very glassy in person.

SOLD Sphalerite- gemmy crystal, classic locality
stock #SOLD 18-1-417
ZCA corporation / Pierrepont Mine, Pierrepont, St Lawrence County
New York, United States
2.7 x 1.9 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A flat, transparent Sphalerite crystal with cognac color from the ZCA Mine in St Lawrence County, New York (USA). This is large, lustrous and very well-defined for this famed locality. The edges are very slightly rough as is typical of all larger crystals from here, but overall this is exceptional with a gemmy interior. This looks at first glance to be untwinned, but under magnification there is a small notch that may indicate a twin plane. Either way the crystal is much more impressive in person, the termination is complete though a bit crude on one edge and with backlighting it glows very nicely.

Smokey Quartz with Goethite (Onegite)- USA classic
stock #AX-35-128
Teller County
Colorado, United States
5 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $180


A very well*-formed example of Goethite crystals on a Smokey Quartz prism. The Quartz is unusual in that it is doubly terminated and in very good condition. The "Ongeite" is in blocky curved rhombic crystals and stacked groups. In much better condition and distinct form that we usually see, this is from an older Northeast collection obtained from Lazard Cahn (no label however) in the early half of the 20th century. A distinctive and classic American specimen these are unlike anything else from any other locality. A few areas of the Quartz have red staining that is also typical of this region.

Spangolite with Quartz
stock #21.1-543
Blanchard Mine, Bingham, Hansonburg District, Socorro County
New Mexico, United States
6.6 x 4.6 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Bright, vivid blue-green crystals of Spangolite contrast with a drusy Quartz block. The Spangolite is prominent and presents well on the matrix. A choice older specimen of this colorful and rather uncommon Copper mineral not often seen as non-micromount display specimens. Crystals are easily visible with naked eye, this is an attractive display example from Bingham. Older labels included from several collections, among these are Danilo Rolando, Ch Dubois and Sandro Maggia.
