D160 - Wulfenite $ 850
Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico
small cabinet - 8 x 6.5 x 4 cm


Wulfenite from Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d160a.jpg] Wulfenite from Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d160b.jpg] Wulfenite from Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d160c.jpg]

Intergrown orange crystals of Wulfenite. There is a small amount of matrix on back, and 2 areas of contact/damage, otherwise these are large matrixless, pristine intergrown crystals to 3.7cm. This style is less common than the typical chunky crystals on matrix. Comes with an old Al McGuinness label.


D161 - Azurite $ 800
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
miniature - 5 x 3.3 x 2 cm


Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d161a.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d161b.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d161c.jpg]

Undamaged floater crystal group with no points of contact - nothing but great crystals. The crystals have good luster and fantastic electric blue color. This specimen is from what was called the Watercourse Pocket. The main, central crystal has a little area of Malachite poking out one end. There has been plenty of Milpillas Azurite found, but I consider these watercours pocket floater specimens to be among the best for the mine.


D162 - Azurite $ 600
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
miniature - 4 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm


Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d162a.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d162b.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d162c.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d162d.jpg]

Floater crystal group of Azurite with no points of contact - nothing but great crystals. The crystals have good luster and fantastic electric blue color. This specimen is from what was called the Watercourse Pocket. There are some fibers of Malachite attached and a couple crystls show areas of alteration to Malachite. There si one tiny crystal that is damaged, likely due to the internal alteration to Malachite, otherwise the specimen is undamaged. There has been plenty of Milpillas Azurite found, but I consider these watercours pocket floater specimens to be among the best for the mine.


D163 - Azurite $ 800
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico

Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d163a.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d163b.jpg] Azurite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d163c.jpg]

Undamaged floater crystal group with no points of contact - nothing but great crystals all around. The crystals have good luster and fantastic electric blue color. This specimen is from what was called the Watercourse Pocket. There has been plenty of Milpillas Azurite found, but I consider these watercours pocket floater specimens to be among the best for the mine.


D164 - Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite $ 2500
Tongbei, Fujian Province, China
cabinet - 14 x 9 x 7 cm


Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164a.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164b.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164c.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164d.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164e.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164f.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164g.jpg] Spessartine with Quartz, Fluorite, Muscovite from Tongbei, Fujian Province, China [db_pics/pics/d164h.jpg]

Smokey Quartz, Muscovite, Spessartine crystals and even one transparent octahedron of Fluorite atop blocky white Microcline Feldspar crystals. Well balanced specimen with transparent Smokey Quartz crystals rising up in the rear central portion and a backdrop to Spessartine crystals atop a book of Muscovite. This was the best specimen of a lot I reviewed with Debbie Meng during the first years when these were being found, perhaps 20 years ago. There are a few partial Spessartines, which look more like natural corrosion than damage. otherwise all the crystals are perfect and undamaged.
