Ilvaite from Laxey Mine, Owyhee Co., Idaho [db_pics/pics/b184a.jpg] Ilvaite from Laxey Mine, Owyhee Co., Idaho [db_pics/pics/b184b.jpg] Ilvaite from Laxey Mine, Owyhee Co., Idaho [db_pics/pics/b184c.jpg]

Fine double-terminated Ilvaite crystal, complete and undamaged but for some slight chipping. There is iron staining on part of the crystal which could be easily removed, but as is provides some color contrast. The old label indicates this specimen was photographed back in 1961, so it's at least 50 years old (out of the ground that is).


B487 - Boleite $ 850 (=~ ¥ 103659)
Amelia Mine, Santa Rosalia, Baja Sur, Mexico
large cabinet - 16 x 10 x 7 cm

Large matrix specimen with numerous Boleite crystals. Matrix Boleite specimens, when available, are most commonly composed of dried clay containing Boleite crystals. This specimen is uncommon for both it's size and that the matrix is composed of hard rock and Gypsum. There are also cream colored Anglesite crystals present. The Boleite cubes reach 8mm in largest dimension. I count 9 larger Boleites, plus many more tiny crystals. This is a rare specimen from a long closed mine.
