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.

Gem090 - Spodumene var. Hiddenite - Rist Mine (North America Emerald Mine), Hiddenite, Alexander Co., North Carolina, USA

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

The crystal has some minor iron staining, but is in superb shape and transparent, as seen in the photos. The color is a depper green in person. With an older Larry Conklin label. 2.4 x 0.4 x 0.3 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.
