Hemimorphite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/LL312a.jpg] Hemimorphite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/LL312b.jpg] Hemimorphite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/LL312e.jpg] Hemimorphite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/LL312f.jpg]

Large open vug with white Hemimorphite crystals. The main cluster is an incredible 4.5cm wide fan-shaped formation. An unusual and distinct example of a fairly common mineral. If you've wanted a good Mexican Hemimorphite but think they all look the same, this one is for you.

Large translucent brown Pargasite crystals associated with blue Spinel. A superb California specimen, it was the best Pargasite (that I saw) from the Chuck Trantham collection, and there is nothing comparable to it on Mindat. The Pargasites are well formed and reach 2.1cm in size, with a band of blue Spinel (including crystals to 4mm) along the bottom, adding good color contrast. Chuck valued this at $750 back in 1983, significantly more than others in his collection that I saw, indicating he too rated this one highly. His label shows a locality of 'Locality No. 2, Twin Lakes area, near Lake Shore, Fresno Co., California' and indicates it was collected in August of 1983.
