Unusual geode-like specimen of flat, recrystallized galena with needle quartz and sphalerite. The galena is extremely lustrous and difficult to photograph. This specimen is much more attractive in person! Minimal damage to the quartz. 10.1 x 7.9 x 6.7 cm.
Aesthetic grouping of large, brassy chalcopyrite crystals and slightly pink calcite. The chalcopyrite measures to about 2.5 cm on edge. Some minor galena is present on the bottom of the specimen. The calcite has some edgewear and the reverse side is contacted where it was attached to matrix, otherwise in good condition. 7.3 x 5.9 x 5.6 cm.
Unusual grouping of galena crystals with a slightly molten, hoppered appearance. The primary form is octahedral, with some prominent growth hillocks visible. Small crystals of dark sphalerite (to 6 mm) are also present. The central cluster is 5.6 x 4.5 cm; the overall specimen size is 12.2 x 8.9 x 7.4 cm.
Large, attractive plate of large crystals (to 3.4 cm) of very lustrous opaque sphalerite with needle quartz and minor chalcopyrite. As shown the photos, the sphalerite has some interesting growth patterns. The bottom of the specimen is flat where it was attached to matrix. 11.2 x 8.6 x 2.7 cm.
Exceptional specimen of blue baryte crystals from an unknown mine in Frizington. The small cleavage on one of the large crystals keeps this from being an extremely expensive specimen. Otherwise, the specimen is in excellent shape, with a few cleavages on the small secondary crystals on the left. The main crystal is about 7.7 x 6.6 cm and is transparent to translucent. 12.0 x 9.3 x 8.6 cm.
Pale pink crystals of orthoclase measure to 1.9 cm on this old German classic. Orthoclase crystals of this color were often referred to as paradoxite. Minor quartz is also present. With older labels from Ward's Natural Science and Lidstrom's. 8.7 x 5.0 x 4.0 cm.
Classic, mid-19th century specimen of drusy, bright orange-red descloizite from Austria. The specimen, particularly the color, is quite fine for the locality. Ex. von Karabacek, Lord Calvert, and Albanese collections. Quite rare on the market! 7.9 x 5.5 x 2.5 cm.
Nice miniature "cogswheel" twin of bournonite with a secondary partial twin. The bournonite has very good luster on most faces; one side is covered with a secondary growth of sulphides. Ex. Robert Brandenberger, Phil Scalisi. 3.5 x 2.0 x 1.7 cm.
Rich specimen of translucent, pale yellow strontianite with white baryte from this classic German locality. The pseudohexagonal strontianite crystals measure to about 3 mm. The baryte fluoresces white and the strontianite fluoresces yellow under both LW and SW UV. 7.2 x 6.8 x 4.3 cm.
