Classic large sized, complete and terminated 'watermelon' Tourmaline with a blue/green over red coloration. Slight chipping along termination edge, otherwise undamaged. Termination has a mirror bright luster, and but for the visible growth features you would swear it was polished. Weighs 21.7 grams.


T229 - Stilbite $ 480
Ahmednagar, India

Stilbite from Ahmednagar, India [db_pics/pics/t229a.jpg] Stilbite from Ahmednagar, India [db_pics/pics/t229b.jpg] Stilbite from Ahmednagar, India [db_pics/pics/t229c.jpg] Stilbite from Ahmednagar, India [db_pics/pics/t229d.jpg]

Three perfect 'bow-tie' crystal groups of Stilbite rising up off the matrix. Stilbite bow-ties are usually found flat on the matrix and to have 3 isolated groups that stand up on end creates a striking specimen. Undamaged.


LP612 - Azurite $ 450
Bisbee, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA

Rosette formations of Azurite from Bisbee. The main cluster on top is 4cm wide and well crystallized, with additional smaller clusters along the sides.


T232 - Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite $ 3500

Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232a.jpg] Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232b.jpg] Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232c.jpg] Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232d.jpg]

Large flat specimen of ironstone loaded with crystals of blue Lazulite, tan Siderite, and white Apatite. Most specimens from this locality (which is now closed) only have crystals of Lazulite and Siderite which make them darker in appearance. The numerous white Apatites lighten up this specimen, along with the well dispersed, isolated Lazulites. This was far and away the very best of a large lot of Lazulite  specimens I obtained during a trip to Canada 25 years ago. Colorful, high quality specimen, especially for such large size.

Puiva Mine #32, Polar Ural Mtns., Tyumen Oblast, Russia

Fine miniature composed of a sharp, transparent purple crystal of Axinite atop transparent smokey Quartz crystals. The Axinite is 2.5cm wide, transparent, and perfect on both sides. Comes with an old Frazier's Minerals label.

Large and aesthetic specimen of Epidote crystals on a cluster of large Quartz crystals. The highlight of the specimen is the 10.5cm doubly terminated Quartz crystal set perfectly in the center of surrounding Quartz crystals, as if being held in an hand. There are a couple of tiny trivial nicks, otherwise all crystals complete and undamaged. It's even recrystallized all along the bottom.

Outstanding single globular Olmiite crystal on matrix. This is a specimen I bought from Clive Queit for $1000 about 15-20 years ago when the first came out and I've held it in my collection ever since. According to Clive it was one of the better single crystals recovered. Crystal is 2.5cm wide.

Disc-shaped pink Mangano Calcite crystals in two stacks. Each stack of crystals is at a different angle, so on the left you see the crystal tops and to the right you see a stack from the side. Large crystal on the left is 12cm wide. There are oriented inclusions of a dark needle-like mineral. Slight edge chipping but overall very clean and free of damage. This is a large and impressive display specimen.

Thick, deep forest green Brochantite crystals with high luster on matrix. This specimn is covered with a number of particularly stout crystals. These are thick, robust crystals from a 2014 find and are much different in style than earlier finds from the mine which were usually more fragile, hair-like crystals.

Rattlesnake Butte, Jackson Co., South Dakota, USA

Double-terminated Calcite crystals that are heavily included by sand. A very clean, large example from this famous and now closed locality. Amazingly perfect for such a large and complex specimen, I could only find one crystal that had a contact. Easily the best example from this locality that I've ever had. Ex. Irv Brown.
