Pyromorphite -multicolor Arsenian
stock #17.1-476
Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur dAlene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
3.2 x 2.5 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575
Pre Holiday 2017

Brilliant wetlook luster and intense color with the melted style crystals make this an impressive piece. There was one significant pocket found decades ago that yielded this unusual habit and brilliant shine. Most of the display face is the rare deep orange red color but there is also bright yellow and green on the display face. The hexagons are distinct yet look to be coated with a melted surface of micro crystals. Striking.

Ludlamite (well crystallized, classic) with Siderite on Quartz
stock #17.1-479
Blackbird Mine, Lemhi County
Idaho, United States
4.4 x 4 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Pre Holiday 2017

Outstanding example of the specie from the old classic Idaho locale of Blackbird mine. These are considered to be the best specimens for the mineral and this one is especially choice. Sharp and gemmy crystals are well exposed and nicely perched on the contrasting matrix. No damage seen even under 20X magnification, the crystals reach up to 1.7 CM, and have fine luster. Micros of Siderite and another mineral are noted on a reddish druzy quartz matrix that sets off the green Ludlamites well.

Pyromorphite -well crystallized yellow
stock #17.1-477
Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur dAlene District, Shosone County
Idaho, United States
5.2 x 3 x 2.7 (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

Bright and very well formed, sharp Pyro crystals in fine condition. The crystals are in free standing sprays on a drusy coated matrix. Very esthetic and lustrous, this is a relatively uncommon color for any Pyromorphite and a nice addition to any suite of the mineral.

Rhodochrosite with Calcite
stock #A-10-845
Santa Eulalia, Aquiles Serdan
Chihuahua, Mexico
5.7 x 4.5 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $145
Pre Holiday 2017

An old (1960s vintage) and unusual Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia. The Rhodos are bright pink and very gemmy rhombs in small clusters and rosettes. A few white Calcites in rice grain form are sprinkled in and the whole rests on a contrasting greenish matrix that is a cast after what probably were earlier Calcite crystals. In fine condition.

stock #AX-6-075
Maharashtra, India
5.9 x 5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $160
Pre Holiday 2017

Most Thomsonite is not especially esthetic or display worthy unless it has form and color like this. Here is a pretty pink ball with sparkling micro crystals all over the surface. The matrix is a light green hue making a nice contrast. This is in fine condition from a small pocket found in 2011.

Weloganite -single crystal
stock #15.1-049
Francon Quarry, Montreal
Quebec, Canada
2 x 1.1 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280
Pre Holiday 2017

A complete crystal with textbook perfect form and doubly terminated as well. From the classic locality at the long closed Francon Quarry. In perfect condition with sharp lustrous striations on the faces. Well above average in esthetics, this rare mineral that has only been found in a few locations worldwide, but only this find produced good displayable crystals. A very distinctive habit and a modern classic.

stock #4.2-391
Shuikoushan Lead Zinc Mine, Changning, Hengyang Pref.
Hunan Province, China
6 x 4.1 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
Pre Holiday 2017

Perfect Sphalerite crystal perched atop a rolling matrix of druzy quartz and a few Galenas. Bright translucent to transparent crystal that can glow red with backlighting. Older specimen from 2003 finds at Shuikoushan, this one is especially choice, three dimensional and esthetic. The bottom and back are sawn from when this was being removed from the host rock. Sits well for display at several angles. No damage.

Rhodochrosite - gem Scalenohedral
stock #17.1-327
Hotazel Mine, Kalahari Mg Field
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2.2 x 1.9 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $825
Pre Holiday 2017

Superb color and unusual variation on form, this is a rich thumbnail of glass clear brilliant Rhodo. The good South African Rhodochrosites have not been found for some time and they are considered some of the greatest ever discovered. This shows why these are so coveted, the color is incredibly intense. The crystals are dominantly scalenohedral but have some variations that are quite a bit more complex. An older specimen this is fine condition as seen. All of the crystals are fully transparent, much more so than the photos show. Choice.
