Hydrozincite
stock #7.AE-533
Muqiaomian Sn Deposit, Pinggui District, Hezhou Pref.
Guangxi Province, China
5.6 x 4.5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Spring 2019

From the one time find over a decade ago that produced some of the worlds best ever Hydrozincites. This is a very well formed example with perfect form and fine luster. Hydrozincite is not normally thought of as an esthetic mineral but this is certainly very attractive. These were at first mistaken for Aragonite with odd luster but on closer study proved to be much rarer and with amazing quality. We have not seen any like this for sale in years.

Elbaite- gem crystal cluster
stock #15.1-419
Paprok, Kamdesh District
Nuristan, Afghanistan
5.2 x 1.1 x .8 CM (cabinet)
price: $800
Spring 2019

100 percent gem Tourmaline in a joined cluster of prisms having 4 separate terminations on the "top". The crystal is doubly terminated so there is a fifth termination (flat type) on the bottom. I count 4 colors in zones but two are rather small and not distinct. The whole is perfectly transparent and facet grade, there is no damage even under good magnification. This is from a major find at Paprock some years back that has since dried up. These polychrome crystals are very distinct and are immediately recognizable from that find.
