SOLD Fluorite, Quartz and Siderite
stock #SOLD 20.1-864
Krupka, Teplice District
Usti nad Labem Region (Bohemia), Czech Republic
4.1 x 3.1 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $0
new year 2021

A very dark purple cube of Fluorite nestled in a cluster of red and yellow Quartz crystals which are colored by Hematite inclusions. A small bit of Siderite is also noted. An old specimen from this important and very historic Czech locality that has produced many different Fluorites over the centuries. These are not seen for sale very often outside of the Central European region, but they are quite prized there.

Tennantite and Siderite - classic European
stock #17.1-032
Barbora Adit, Knottei area, Krupka, Krusne Hory Mts
Usti nad Labem Region (Bohemia), Czech Republic
5.4 x 3.3 x 2.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $150
new year 2021

A very old and very rich Czech Tennantite from this historic mining region. The matrix is a sparkling Quartz with several large (for the locality) Siderite rhombs up to 2.5 CM. The Tennantites are in clusters of many small, distinctive crystals, up to 4mm - though most are smaller. The Tennantite masses are relatively bright, lustrous and includes many twins. A small amount of Chalcopyrite is seen with magnification. This can be displayed from several angles that show more Dolomite or more Tennantite depending on preference.

Scheelite on Quartz -classic European
stock #19.1-295
Cinovec, Krusne Hory Mts.
Usti nad Labem Region (Bohemia), Czech Republic
5.7 x 2.9 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A rarely available habit of Scheelite in balls and masses of tiny crystals on a doubly terminated Quartz. This is a very old specimen from the area also known as Zinnwald (on German side of the border) in the Erzgebirge / Krusne Hory mountains. The Scheelite balls are up to 5mm and composed of masses of small crystals clustered together. With good magnification it can be seen that some of the crystals are elongated pseudo-octahedra. In fine condition the quartz is undamaged and iridescent in person. From an old Czech collection, this is the most esthetic example of this habit I have ever seen.
