AXINITE-(Fe)
$95
Locality: Puiva, Tyumen Oblast', Polar Urals, Western Siberia, Russia
Size:  3.7 x 3 x .7 cm
One of those great gemmy world class Ferro-Axinite crystals from Puiva found back in the early 90's,
if my memory is correct. Here is a very good crystal with only the smallest bit of micro edge chatter,
as seem. The edges are super thin and sharp and were notorious for chipping, so this is a good one.
Don't see many available anymore. Old Rocksmiths label.

A very showy specimen of Schorl tourmaline on contrasting white blades of Clevelandite.
There is a small terminated Brookite crystal nested in between the Clevelandite on the
lower right of the specimen..  The Schorls are bright, terminated and without any damage.
This is an excellent schorl that is way above average.

A large, thick translucent , double terminated Barite.  It is crystalized on the

BARITE

Locality: Linwood Mine, Buffalo, Scott Co., Iowa
Size:  7 x 6 x 5 cm
A  gemmy Barite on matrix from the 2016 find. There has been no significant new finds
of Barites since then, though a great find of gemmy Calcites was made in 2017.  
Note the transparent gemmy amber termination. At the lower end is a very unusual
pointed  termination that I've not seen before.
