Galena - classic locale
stock #13.1-168
Freiberg
Saxony, Germany
3.9 x 3.6 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $550
new year 2021

A very fine miniature of a pair of intergrown modified octahedrons. This habit is classic and distinctive for this ancient German Silver mining locality. In excellent condition with a dark metallic patina, this is clearly a very old specimen though without documentation. Worldwide the vast majority of Galenas are crystallized as simple cubes or modified cubes. Octahedrons are far less common but were more frequently seen in central and eastern Europe, especially from a few of the ancient German mines. An excellent textbook clean example.

Proustite on Quartz - classic
stock #AX-12-209
Freiberg
Saxony, Germany
2.2 x 1.8 x 1.7 (thumbnail)
price: $200


Deep red small crystals of Proustite scattered on a complex mix of tiny yellowish Quartz crystals. A nice thumbnail of a "noble" Silver mineral that has several different habits showing. With magnification some broken areas are noted which is typical for most Proustites but all in all this is a cute and fairly rich specimen from a classic locale. Ex. Wm. Hladysz collection, he acquired this in 2003.

Fluorite on Quartz, Classic locale, zoned crystals
stock #0525-JM-2770
Freiberg
Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
7 x 5.3 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Spring update

A fine old classic Freiburg Fluorite specimen ex. Yale and JH Marshall collections. The Fluorites are zoned with clear to deep purple colors and have rotated phantoms. Sharp corners and edges these are good condition despite some small bruising. Some old damage is on the Quartz some of which has rehealed, but this is overall quite fine and can be displayed (or trimmed) so damage is not noticable. Not typical of the majority of specimens we have seen, there are a few areas of crystallized Sulfides as well.
