stock #16.1-017
Mesa Grande, San Diego Co.
California, United States
3.3 x 1 x .7 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Winter 2016-17

Gem clear and quite impressive for the small size, a delicate pastel hue Tourmaline. Formed of two clear crystals one with a perfect termination, the smaller is broken at the tip, hence quite inexpensive. Despite this break the tourmaline still looks quite attractive.

5.5 x 4.3 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Winter 2016-17

Sharp Cuprites to 1.8 cm are set nicely on a contrasting Malachite and Plancheite matrix. Some natural pitting on the back side but no real damage, the Cuprites are all bright translucent red when backlit. A good value and no longer available.

stock #16.1-156
Muzo Mining District
Boyacá, Colombia
4.5 x 4.2 x 2.8 CM (miniature)

An impressive specimen of this rare but usually drab mineral. Super esthetic Parisite crystals in excellent condition are scattered on a druzy matrix. The deep color and waxy luster of these crystals are quite distinctive. Very choice

3.5 x 2.4 x 2.6 CM (miniature)

Arusha Region, Tanzania
3.6 x 2.4 x 3.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $1100
Winter 2016-17

Small yet with incredible impact and esthetics. The combination of the mint-green Diopside gem clear crystals perched on bladed Graphite crystals is impressive. In fine condition, there are unidentified hairlike crystals as well best seen with magnification. A great example of this highly sought after combination, this looks great from all sides.

Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
7.3 x 6.1 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $895
Winter 2016-17

Fine butterscotch yellow crystals both standing and laying on a Calcite/Smithsonite matrix. For this delicate mineral (in thin fragile crystals) it is in exceptional condition. Micro-chips exist but are very minor. Very good esthetics.

Tongshankou Mine, Daye Co., Huangshi Pref.
Hubei Province, China
5 x 2.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $875
