Very rich specimen of intergrown, doubly-terminated, colorless crystals of phenakite to 7 mm. Also present are lenticular crystals of somewhat corroded siderite crystals. The right side of the reverse is covered with small cubic crystals of a brownish mineral which is highly fluorescent yellow under both SW and LW UV; this may be florencite-(Ce) but it has not been tested. Ex. Pough and Feinglos collections with labels. 7.7 x 4.8 x 2.0 cm.
Choice, large doubly-terminated gem crystal of vivianite. The crystal is a vibrant, deep green and completely transparent. There is a small amount of the typical sandstone matrix attached. A superb example from this find. 7.0 x 2.6 x 2.6 cm.
From the find in the late 1970's, this is an excellent small cabinet specimen of violet hydroxylherderite on a matrix of tan lepidolite. The doubly-terminated crystal on the left measures 1.9 cm and the large vertical crystal measures 1.0 cm. Both are undamaged. There are numerous smaller crystals scattered on the matrix. 7.0 x 5.3 x 2.1 cm.
This is a fine specimen of large chalcocite-coated intergrown chalcopyrite crystals and quartz on a massive sulfide matrix. The chalcopyrite crystals measure to 2.2 cm. A couple slightly damaged quartz points but otherwise fine. Ex. Ernie Schlichter. 8.4 x 8.3 x 5.1 cm.
Superb sceptered amethyst crystal from this unusual locality. The crystal has fine color in the top of the "cap" and is transparent to translucent. It also exhibits the iron staining characteristic of the locality. Ex. Crystal Classics, Terry Szenics, with Terry's label. 7.3 x 2.2 x 1.8 cm.
Fine, old classic miniature of hematite on albite from St. Gotthard. The hematite, which measures to about 4 mm, is scattered on both sides of the specimen. It is somewhat unusual in that the hematite is in single blades, rather than the more common rosettes. Ex. George English, with his label (shown.) 4.7 x 3.7 x 3.2 cm.
Excellent cabinet specimen of small grass-green pyromorphite crystals from this classic Black Forest locality. The pyromorphite measures to about 2.5 mm and almost completely covers the front of the specimen. Hard to find in this size and quality these days. This specimen was in my personal collection. Ex. Eugene Sensel collection with label; he purchased this specimen from Herb Obodda in 1991 for $100. 11.3 x 8.4 x 7.7 cm.
This is an absolutely superb example of this classic Saxon pseudomorph. The centrally situated, very sharp Carlsbad twin is exceptionally large at 4.6 x 4.6 cm. In addition, this is a matrix specimen; most of the pseudomorphs I have seen from this locality have been off matrix. 8.4 x 7.8 x 7.6 cm.
Attractive, large miniature specimen of bright, deep red proustite from this classic German mining district. The proustite crystals in the central grouping measure to 4 mm and have superb color and translucency. The more crudely crystalized proustite also is quite translucent with great color when backlit. Quite rich! From my personal collection. 4.7 x 4.2 x 2.8 cm.
