Galena with Dolomite and Sphalerite
stock #AX-27-091
Ninth of September mine, Madan, Rhodope Mountains
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
7.7 x 4.7 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Worldwide mix summer

Bright metallic Galena with high luster is epitaxially encrusted with Dolomite in a very esthetic manner. Much of the Dolomite is in spherical form and is aligned on crystal edges. In super condition, the specimen is more impressive in person and the crystals have mirror brilliance on many faces. The Madan area mines have been the source of the worlds best Galena for several years, this specimen shows why these are so well respected as a very good value for quality.

Graphite - very fine, sharp crystals
stock #18.1-285
Olmsteadville, Minerva Township, Essex County
New York, United States
2.9 x 2.1 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $525
Worldwide mix summer

A superb rosette crystal cluster of Graphite standing on matrix. At 1.1 cm across and with bright metallic luster this is a killer thumbnail in fine condition. Magnification finds one tiny edge contact but for this delicate mineral this is in amazing condition. Textbook form, and with fine esthetics, Graphite is not a rare mineral but well formed lustrous crystals are very rare. From finds in the late seventies, an excellent US classic specimen.

Thomsonite-Ca with Mesolite
stock #AX-6-041
Aurangabad
Maharashtra, India
5.8 x 4.1 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Worldwide mix summer

A sparkling pink hemisphere of Thomsonite sits esthetically on a contrasting matrix. From a pocket found a few years ago, these pink Thompsonite were an exciting new find then, unlike any others with a covering of tiny needles of Mesolite that gave a nice luster. In fine condition, these are no longer available, and at that time very few were undamaged like this. A great addition to any suite of Indian or Zeolite minerals.

Gypsum-
stock #AX-10-811
Kirkby Thore. Vale of Eden
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
6.3 x 4.6 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $140
Worldwide mix summer

A sharp and curious old English specimen of Daisy bed or Daisy Wheel habit gypsum crystals on matrix. Some of the flowers have the rare but desirable Rhombohedral crystal preserved at the center or core of the flowers. The matrix has these flowers displayed on two sides.

Phosgenite- complete complex crystal
stock #15.1-999-(SM3078)
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
3.8 x 2.5 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Worldwide mix summer

An excellent, well formed complex Phosgenite from Touissit, Morocco. Ex Charles Noll collection, this is crystalized all around, nearly all transparent gem clear and with an elaborate shape. Touissit Phosgenites are only rarely available, they are regarded as some of the worlds best. Much less common on the market than the Sardinian Phosgenites, these were only discovered shortly before the mine closed for good. This is in fine condition as seen, which is also very rare with this delicate and brittle mineral.

Barite -transparent with Phantoms
stock #16.1-083
Susville, La Mure, Isere
Rhone-Alpes, France
3.9 x 3.5 x .9 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Worldwide mix summer

Transparent blade crystals of Barite with a white fringe and phantoms inside. Sharp and lustrous from a small but remarkable French find 3 years ago. A choice example, very delicate and in eye-perfect condition. With 10 x magnification the main crystals are pristine. At 20 X a tiny chip is found on a tiny side crystal near the base. A choice example.

Brochantite on Malachite -historic
stock #1145-JM-3267
Frisco, San Francisco Mts. Beaver County
Utah, United States
5.4 x 4.4 x 3 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $175
Worldwide mix summer

A vug of well protected Brochantite crystals ex John Marshall collection that has an excellent provenance. John bought this from Johnathan Smith (NYC mineral dealer) in Feb 1994. Jonathan had obtained this from the Alan Green collection who had gotten this from the Schortmann brothers at their famed sale in NYC in 1950, at the Hotel Lexington. This is the period where the Schortmans were selling minerals collected by Ed Over and Arthur Montgomery. All the original labels for this are included. In good condition, a cute Utah Copper specimen with pedigree.
