Dioptase on Chrysocolla over Cerussite from Sanda Mine, Mindouli, Congo [db_pics/pics/t601a.jpg] Dioptase on Chrysocolla over Cerussite from Sanda Mine, Mindouli, Congo [db_pics/pics/t601b.jpg] Dioptase on Chrysocolla over Cerussite from Sanda Mine, Mindouli, Congo [db_pics/pics/t601c.jpg]

Old specimen composed of a reticulated 'snowflake' of Cerussite that has been coated by Chrysocolla with Dioptase crystals attached to one side. All the Dioptase aren't in perfect condition, but I think it displays best from the side without the Dioptase anyways. This was recently released from a collection and I've never seen one like it before. The label notes that it was purchased from John Seibel in 1997. A rare and unusual thumbnail!

Good sized, terminated Chrome Tremolite crystal with excellent color. This is a little larger than most, and has an excellent, multi-faced termination. It also has outstanding color, and appears to have some cutting quality gems zones inside too.

Unique thumbnail specimen of star-shaped Mimetite with attached Malachite. Fully crystallized all around with only one tiny point of contact on the backside.

Fine quality elongated Tsavorite crystal from recent production (2017) that has been producing these stange, elongated crystals. Many of the new crystals, like this one, exhibit a faden line running up the C-axis. This is an undamaged floater cluster of a few interconnected crystals.

A real GEM of a Tsavorite crystal. Totally transparent and crystalized on all sides, even the bottom. Some Tsavorites grow perched atop the edges of Graphite crystals which allows crystal faces to form on the bottom as well as the top and sides.There are residual thin black grooves on the bottom where the Graphite crystals were, otherwise fully crystallized.

T697 - Prehnite $ 350

Prehnite from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada [db_pics/pics/t697a.jpg] Prehnite from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada [db_pics/pics/t697b.jpg] Prehnite from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada [db_pics/pics/t697c.jpg]

Three interconnected, curving and lustrous Prehnite crystals. Although many other localities produce good Prehnite, they are usually in rounded clusters or platy masses, not distinct individual crystals such as this. Nowhere, to my knowledge, produces as good crystals as those found at the Jeffrey Mine, but they are not well known because there just aren't many available, in fact this is only the second one I have owned. Ex. Charlie Key.


T696 - Vesuvianite $ 200
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada
thumbnail - 1.7 x 0.8 x 0.8 cm
