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.
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.
A somewhat crude, altered, tabular chalcocite crystal measuring 1.3 cm on matrix with several other smaller crystals. The chalcocite appears to be pseudo-hexagonal in form. 3.2 x 2.6 x 2.5 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.
Superb rough and cut set of aragonite from this classic Bohemian locality. The aragonite crystal, which measures 6.1 x 1.5 x 1.2 cm, is transparent and almost completely gem quality. It has a sharp termination and only has a few edge nibbles; otherwise, it is of superb quality for the locality. The cut stone, faceted by Nancy Pritchard in a custom cut, weighs 18.52 carats. The cutting is impeccable, with sharp facet joins and an incredibly brilliant appearance for the material. Photograph by Joe Budd.
