PYROMORPHITE
$280
Locality: Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Idaho
Size:  6 x 6 x 3.5 cm
An unusual Pyromorphite from the Bunker Hill mine with large light orange
hoppered barrels having a preferential coating of tan color as seen.
Bought this in 1983 at Tucson from the mine superintendant .
#8606
UVITE
$125
Locality: Powers Farm, Pierrepont, St. Lawrence Co., New York
Size:  3 x 4 x 3.5 cm
A really superb Uvite collected in 1986.  It is complete all around with high luster
and no damage.   Unusually high quality and aesthetics for this locale.
Locality: Stromberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
Size:  11.5 x 8 x 5 cm
A rare "artichoke" quartz from a short lived find in the 1970's.  It is my understanding
that this was one of the best that was collected by Herbert Seckler in the late 1970's.
It is very bright with mirror faces and has no tip dings like many of the others that
were collected. Very rare on todays market.

HEMATITE
$160
Locality: Espirito Santo, Brazil
Size: 4 x 3.7 x 3.2 cm.
A superb old Hematite with great shine and luster.
This came to the collection in 1992 from a New England collector.
The backside is not crystalized where it separated from hematite matrix.

FORSTERITE var. PERIDOT
$450
#9027
BOURNONITE
$220
Locality: Quiruvilca, Santiago de Chuco Prov., Peru
Size: 8.5 x 8 x 5 cm
A floater Bournonite , crystalized all around with bright, metalic black crystals.
Not a flat plate, but an irregular mound with lots of topography and many complex
crystals.  Mined back in the 1980's, it comes with the original Victor Yount label.
Fine condition with no damage.
 
#01
BARITE
$140
Locality: Rock River, Yukon, Canada
Size:  11 x 9 x 7 cm
A large cabinet blue Barite with very large, glassy crystals.
Weight is 850 gm / 30 ounces, so it is quite heavy.
Very good condition.  Old specimen from my collection.
#37
CERUSSITE & Malachite               
SOLD
Locality: Browns Prospect, Rum Jungle, Batchelor, Northern Territory, Australia
Size:  6.5 x 6 x 5 cm
An unusually fine and superb Rum Jungle Cerussite collected in 1975 and in my collection for
over 40 years! The quality and the reticulation of the Cerussite 'snowflake' is extremely good
for this old find, and something like this is only available from old collections.
Locality: Sapat, Indus River, Kohistan, Pakistan
Size: 5 x 6 x 3.7 cm.
A rare matrix Peridot specimen featuring two apple green terminated crystals.
Ex. F. John Barlow Collection #5420
Ex. Arkenstone specimen from 2000
#8214
CELESTITE
$250
Locality: Chittenango Falls, Madison Co., New York
Size: 7 x 5 x 5 cm.
A Celestite and Calcite combo specimen from the old famous locale at Chittenango Falls.
The locale has been closed to collecting for over 30 years, as it is in the boundary of a State Park.
The well terminated blue Celestite crystals are up to 4 cm. long and have some Calcite crystals
associasted with them. This was collected about 40 years ago. Acquired in 1982.
Almost impossible to attain except from old collections
#01
CALCITE
$295
Locality: Verchniy Mine, Dal'negorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Russia
Size:  12 x 8 x 7 cm
A spectacular Calcite group from the classic Russian locale for these brilliant gemmy crystals.
Rarely seen anymore, especially in this size and quality, these rank as some of the best and most sought
after Calcites. This is a large group of clean, undamaged, doubly terminated scalenohedral crystals with the
highest glassy luster. Very minor cleaves on a few edgecrystals which has no impact on the display as you
can see by the pics.  The specimen self stands as seen in the photos, for an outstanding aesthetic display.
