Baryte010 - Baryte - Leeson Pocket, Stoneham, Weld County, Colorado, USA

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.

Classic092 - Cordierite var. Iolite - Harris Quarry, Richmond, Cheshire County, New Hampshire

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.

Well-matched rough and cut set of fluorite from this classic New England locality. The fluorite specimen, which measures 7.6 x 5.0 x 4.7 cm, features a 3.0 cm, light green, translucent octahedral crystal. It is of top quality for the locality. The cut stone, faceted by Brad Lewis in a custom cut, weighs 62.22 carats. The cutting is impeccable, with sharp facet joins, and the stone is of top color and clarity. Both stone and specimen are fluorescent. Photograph by Joe Budd.

Superb, old-time gem crystal of "hiddenite" from the type location for the variety.

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.
