SOLD Tephorite - crystalized with Willemite etc.
stock #SOLD 20.1-640
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
3.4 x 2.6 x 1.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
new year 2021

A Franklin, New Jersey classic, a mass of Tephorite crystals with green Willemite crystals and some small areas of what seems to be Hodgkinsonite and Friedelite. This is an old specimen that was for many years in several European collections, those labels are included. Tephroite in massive form is not very rare at Franklin, but the tiny, sharp and gemmy crystals are quite rare and not often available.

Willemite -red to pink crystal in Calcite
stock #AX-12-581
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
6.2 x 4.2 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $285
Spring 2017

A nice classic Franklin, New Jersey Willemite crystal well exposed on Calcite. Vivid fluorescence, sharp prism faces and not acid etched out of the matrix (which was usually done but looks melted and is less desirable). The crystal is typically crude and slightly rounded on some edges with natural cracks but no repairs.

Rhodonite on Calcite with Franklinite
stock #9.1-251
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
4 x 2.9 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $260
May 2015

A complete 2.9 cm crystal of Rhodonite is perched above a smaller 2.3 CM crystal resting on Calcite matrix. Nicely exposed, the Calcite has not been acid "melted" so this is fully natural. An affordable classic specimen with good color, form and in nice condition, these are getting quite hard to find in any decent condition.

Rhodonite (blocky crystals with minor Franklinite, Calcite)
stock #13.1-041
Franklin Mine, Franklin Mining District, Sussex County
New Jersey, United States
4.6 X 3.8 X 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380
Spring 2014

A cluster of five main Rhodonite crystals up to 3.3 CM in size are arranged in an attractive cluster. This is an American classic that has become quite scarce on the market in recent years. The condition is excellent and like most of these had some acid etching to expose the Rhodonite well. The color is well above average and this piece is very 3-dimensional.
