1.5 cm crystal of deep red, gemmy, translucent to transparent of hydroxylclinohumite on clinochlore matrix. Originally thought to be clinohumite, the crystals were analyzed and determined to be hydroxylclinohumite. Many other smaller and intergrown crystals are present. Excellent! 3.6 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm.
Unusual matrix specimen of bright blue baryte from the July 1989 find by Brian Lees. The specimen appears to have grown in a vug between granular matrix as the typical chisel terminations are imbedded in the surviving matrix. Matrix specimens are relatively uncommon from this find as the matrix is fragile. 7.5 x 5.0 x 1.5 cm.
From the 2007 find, pale yellow-green clusters of adamite to 2.8 cm are on a limonitic matrix. Except for the crystal form, this specimen is very similar to the adamite from Ojuela. Unlike most of the specimens from this find, this one also has isolated, prismatic crystals of adamite present. Fluorescent. 8.3 x 7.0 x 5.6 cm.
Historic specimen of tan to pinkish baryte with a dusting of bluish, corroded microcrystals of chalcopyrite. The baryte has some scattered bruises, but overall is in good condition. Ex. Harvard University, with label, and John Albanese collection, with his collection card. The Pearse notation on the Harvard label dates the specimen to the mid to late 1800's. From my personal collection. 9.1 x 6.3 x 4.4 cm.
Nice specimen of this rare copper phosphate from the type locality. The dark-green microcrystalline reichenbachite is in a patch about 1.6 cm across. From my personal collection. 6.0 x 5.2 x 2.5 cm.
Fine, attractive specimen of colorless, transparent cerussite from Germany. The cerussite crytals measure to 1.7 cm and are on a corroded galena matrix. Superb! From my personal collection. 5.6 x 5.6 x 2.1 cm.
Rich specimen of small, yellow-green topazolite crystals on typical serpentinite matrix from this Bavarian locality. The lustrous crystals measure to about 2 mm. From my personal collection. 14.8 x 7.4 x 6.6 cm.
Superb, rich specimen of yellow-green pyromorphite on the typical sandstone matrix from this Bavarian locality. The pyromorphite measures to about 1.5 mm. Very good for the locality. From my personal collection. 7.0 x 6.4 x 3.9 cm.
Historic specimen of deep brown to golden siderite with a dusting of small pyrite crystals. The siderite is sharply crystallized in flattened, compound rhombs. Very attractive and displays well. From the Florence Pilkington Manchester collection, with label, and my personal collection. 8.2 x 7.6 x 4.4 cm.
