Double terminated sixling Chrysoberyl. Good uncommon gem crystal, translucent golden color.

Cuprite from Red Dome Mine, Chillagoe, Queensland, Australia [db_pics/pics/a756a.jpg] Cuprite from Red Dome Mine, Chillagoe, Queensland, Australia [db_pics/pics/a756b.jpg] Cuprite from Red Dome Mine, Chillagoe, Queensland, Australia [db_pics/pics/a756c.jpg] Cuprite from Red Dome Mine, Chillagoe, Queensland, Australia [db_pics/pics/a756d.jpg]

A 1cm Cuprite crystal set on Cuprite with smaller crystals. Red Dome Cuprite is the world's best in my opinion because it is so transparent and bright. With a little backlighting, the main crystal really lights up. The best pieces from this find sold in the high five figures and there is not much of this material on the market anymore.


AF393 - Anglesite $ 800 SOLD
Tsumeb, Namibia
small cabinet - 7.6 x 3.5 x 2.6

Light blue Anglesite crystal group nicely crystallized on both sides. The blue color is unusual and likely caused by Copper.

Malosa, Zomba, Malawi [db_pics/pics/af394c.jpg] Quartz on Aegerine from Mt. Malosa, Zomba, Malawi [db_pics/pics/af394d.jpg]

Highly aesthetic specimen of a well terminated Aegerine (not a ragged termination like most) with an attached cluster of smokey quartz and a small orthosclase crystal. While not as large as some, this is as good as I've seen fromthis locality in terms of aesthetics.


AF395 - Dioptase on Calcite $ 450 SOLD
Tsumeb, Namibia
miniature - 5 x 4 x 3


Dioptase on Calcite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af395a.jpg] Dioptase on Calcite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af395b.jpg] Dioptase on Calcite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af395c.jpg] Dioptase on Calcite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af395d.jpg]

Classic specimen of lustrous Dioptase on white Calcite. Crystals are undamaged, main group is 1.9cm wide.Ex. Bruce Carter collection.

Mashamba Mine, Shaba Prov., Congo
thumbnail - 3.1 x 2.2 x 1

Pink Calcite crystals that show nicely with the green Malachite. This is an old specimen from a locality that produced superb pink Calcites; the new stuff from Morocco just doesn't compare to these. I just love these and pick them up whenever I can find them. There is a cleavage face on the lower left of the lower front crystal group; top, main display crystal is undamaged.

Green, glassy Fluorite cubes to 2.3cm across. Fluorite from this locality can occur in a variety of colors, this stands out because it is so much more transparent than most. Nice glassy luster in an aesthetic cluster.

Bright red Vanadinite crystals to 8mm on white Barite crystals. The main crystals display great and contrast well against the white Barite. A few smaller crystals are missing. While Vanadinites are now plentiful, specimens on white Barite are not as plentiful and make for the best specimens.
