Barite from El'brusskiy Arsenic Mine, Elbrus Mt., Northern Caucasus Region, Russia [db_pics/pics/tu21a.jpg] Barite from El'brusskiy Arsenic Mine, Elbrus Mt., Northern Caucasus Region, Russia [db_pics/pics/tu21b.jpg]

Gem quality golden brown crystal complete all around. In excellent condition for this locality. Fully transparent internally, so much so you see right through it and what looks like inclusions in the photos are really just shadows from some irregular surface areas onthe backside of the crystal.

Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Idaho

Lustrous curving crystals with good 'wet' luster and slight hints of green. Larger crystals mixed with smaller crystals. Ex. Brett Keller, Dawn and Jim Minette collections with labels.

Cluster of Wurtzite crystals adorned by a row of snow white Barite crystals running up one side with Pyrite providing additional accent.

Hematite on Quartz from Huangguangliang Mine, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China [db_pics/pics/tu26a.jpg] Hematite on Quartz from Huangguangliang Mine, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China [db_pics/pics/tu26b.jpg] Hematite on Quartz from Huangguangliang Mine, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China [db_pics/pics/tu26c.jpg]

Two superbly formed Hematite rosettes atop green Quartz crystals. Largest is 2.2cm in diameter and of fine quality. Incredibly beautiful specimen.


TU27 - Apatite on Quartz SOLD
Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal
small cabinet - 6.5 x 4.5 x 3 cm


Apatite on Quartz from Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal [db_pics/pics/tu27a.jpg] Apatite on Quartz from Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal [db_pics/pics/tu27b.jpg] Apatite on Quartz from Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal [db_pics/pics/tu27c.jpg]

Glassy blue/geen Apatite crystals adorn a clear, tabular Quartz crystal. Apatite crystals reach 1.7cm across. The Apatites don't photo well and to me, this one is much better in person.


TU28 - Apatite, Siderite on Quartz $ 850 SOLD
Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal
cabinet - 10.5 x 4.5 x 2.3 cm


Apatite, Siderite on Quartz from Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal [db_pics/pics/tu28a.jpg] Apatite, Siderite on Quartz from Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal [db_pics/pics/tu28b.jpg] Apatite, Siderite on Quartz from Panasquiera Mines, Beira Baixa, Portugal [db_pics/pics/tu28c.jpg]

Glassy blue/geen Apatite crystals and Siderite crystals cover one side of a narrow, flattened Quartz crystal. The Apatite crystals reach 1.4cm across and cover most of one side of the Quartz, with the tiny termination faces of the Quartz just visable. Loaded with thick, glassy crystals, better than photos.


TU29 - Malachite over Bornite $ 450 SOLD
Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan
cabinet - 12.5 x 8 x 3.5 cm


Malachite over Bornite from Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan [db_pics/pics/tu29a.jpg] Malachite over Bornite from Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan [db_pics/pics/tu29b.jpg] Malachite over Bornite from Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan [db_pics/pics/tu29c.jpg]

Bornite crystals to 1.5 cm wide with a surficial coating of Malachite. The crystals are well separated and dispersed across the flat display face and the crystal form is discernable despite the Malachite coating. Bornite crystals are rare and those with Malachite coating rarer still.


TU30 - Vivianite $ 800 SOLD
Tomokoni Mine, Potosi, Bolivia
small cabinet - 9 x 5 x 5 cm


Vivianite from Tomokoni Mine, Potosi, Bolivia [db_pics/pics/tu30a.jpg] Vivianite from Tomokoni Mine, Potosi, Bolivia [db_pics/pics/tu30b.jpg] Vivianite from Tomokoni Mine, Potosi, Bolivia [db_pics/pics/tu30c.jpg]

Pair of gemmy green Vivianites, one pointing up and the other sort of down and across, in a vug in red sandstone matrix. Perhaps the most aesthetic specimen of these Vivianites I have ever seen. No damage.
