Older, classic New England specimen by way of Schortmann's Minerals and the Albert Sebela collection. The greyish-blue stocky crystals are imbedded in a quartz matrix and measure to about 1.5 cm. Unlike most cordierite specimens from this locality, the crystals are a bluish-grey in color (most are brown to olive-brown.) Specimens like this very rarely come on the market. 6.2 x 5.7 x 3.7 cm.
Large, nicely colored sharp crystal on and albite and muscovite matrix from this classic California locality. The morganite measures 5.0 x 3.6 cm and has some transparent, gemmy areas. This is an older specimen from the late 1970's or early 1980's. Ex. Roland Reed and Chuck Houser. 7.6 x 7.4 x 3.7 cm.
Fine butterscotch-colored, bipyramidal crystals of wulfenite on matrix. The lustrous, translucent crystals measure to 1.1 cm; the fully exposed crystal is doubly-terminated. The wulfenite is undamaged except for a naturally contacted crystal on the reverse. 4.4 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm.
Rich specimen of dark pyrargyrite from this famous mining area in Mexico. The pyrargyrite measures to about 6 mm and is contrasted nicely by clear calcite and quartz crystals. This specimen has not been chemically cleaned by me so as to preserve the calcite. 7.6 x 6.0 x 3.7 cm.
Very nice small cabinet specimen of lavender creedite to 1.8 cm. Most of the crystals are sharply terminated and range from a medium lavender to almost colorless at the tips. There are a few cleaved crystal at the periphery (particularly at the bottom and left side) but the crystals in the main display area are fine. What appears to be damage in the center is actually a patch of natural roughness and iridescent sulphide crystals. 7.3 x 5.2 x 3.7 cm.
Top-notch miniature from this now-closed locality. The wulfenite is Fanta orange and mostly transparent. 3.3 x 3.3 x 2.3 cm.
Gemmy, pinkish-red elbaite crystals with a green core. Minor albite and a nice lavender lepidolite rosette are also present. Classic Himalaya specimen; undamaged with some contacting on reverse. 5.9 x 4.1 x 3.3 cm.
Classic specimen of dull, brownish red cuprite crystals on crudely crystallized native copper. The cuprite crystals measure to just over 5 mm. Fine cuprite specimens from Bisbee are difficult to find today. The accompanying Larry Conklin label has his handwritten price of $1,000 on the reverse. 11.3 x 6.7 x 4.7 cm.
Sharp lustrous crystals of apophyllite to 1.6 cm on quartz. There is also some minor stilbite and pectolite present. Only a few very minor edge nicks. Ex. Schlichter and Vitali collections. 12.9 x 7.7 x 4.8 cm.
