thumbnail Item PS7 - CALCITE - Daye, Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei Province, China; a cabinet-sized specimen of dogtooth calcites as a secondary growth over a calcite matrix. Dimensions are 7 1/2" x 4" x 4", and condition is good. $130.          
thumbnail Item PS8 - GALENA on SPHALERITE with PYRITE- Huanzala Mine, Huanuco Dept., Peru; a nice sample of the spinel-twin galena from Peru.

thumbnail Item PS10 - RHODOCROSITE and QUARTZ on FLUORAPATITE- Foote Mine, Cleveland County, North Carolina; (this specimen really looks great under a loop!) a .5 cm rhodocrosite ball and numerous quartz crystals - some "micro" - sit on a bed of fluorapatite crystals. Dimensions are 1 7/8" x 1 5/8" x 3/4". Condition is good. $300.        
thumbnail Item PS11 - RUTILE and HEMATITE - Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Brazil; flat, dark-chrome colored hematite plates are clustered together with a coating of gold rutile needles. Dimensions are 1 5/8" x 1 1/4" x 1/2", and condition is very good. $110.

thumbnail Item PS13 - PYRITE - Morococha District, Junin Dept., Peru; a long, winding grouping of Peruvian pyrite crystals. This one measures 5 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 1 1/2", and can be displayed either laying flat of standing vertically with a stand. Condition is very good. $195.          
thumbnail Item PS14 - FLUORITE - Xinjiang, Jiangxi Province, China; a large plate of dark-green octagedral crystals. Note that the color is actually a darker green than is shown, but due to the transparancy, the light from my photo tent gets through and makes it appear lighter. Definitely not a problem if you want it backlighted or on a light-box! Specimen is 8 1/2" x 6" x 2", and in good condition. These normally sell well for me at shows! $155.          
thumbnail Item PS15 - AZURITE and MALACHITE - Liufengshan Mine, Anhui Province, China; a vug full of deep-blue azurite crystals grows in a dark-green malachite matrix. A colorful specimen, measuring 3 1/4" x 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". Condition is good. $88.

thumbnail Item PS17 - MALACHITE - Milpillas Mine, Cananea, Sonora, Mexico; a hand-sized piece of the "prickly velvet malachite" from this famous Mexican mine. Specimen is pretty much solid malachite, and measures 6 1/2" x 3" x 2". Note that this mine is no longer producing these (or the azurites). $95.          
thumbnail Item PS18 - HEMATITE ("Kidney Ore") - Florence Mine, Egremont, Cumbria, England; a nice "knob" of reddish-brown hematite from a clasic English locale. Specimen measures 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" x 1 1/4". Condition is very good. $90.          
thumbnail Item PS19 - SMOKY QUARTZ and MICA - North American Emerald Mine, Hiddenite, North Carolina; from the now-closed NAEM mine - a nice grouping of transparant smoky quartz crystals has an association of mica crystals at various points. Piece measures 2 1/4" x 1 1/2" x 2 1/2", and condition is fine. $100.          
thumbnail Item PS20 - AZURITE - Milipllas Mine, Cananea, Sonora, Mexico; a quality, thumbnail-sized specimen of azurite from Mexico. Crystals exhibit a nice wedge-shape, and there is a minor association of malachite near the base. Measures 7/8" x 6/8" x 7/8". $100.          
thumbnail Item PS21 - MOLYBDENITE - Malartic, Quebec, Canada; a curved, hexagonal, chrome-colored crystal of this molybdenum disulfide sits up on a quartz matrix piece. Specimen measures 1 3/4" x 1/2" x 1 1/8", and condition is good. Comes in a 2" x 2" perky box. $22.          
thumbnail Item PS22 - QUARTZ with CHLORITE inclusions - Bahia, Brazil; a great choice for the quartz collector! This specimen is a cluster of roughly 20 clear, terminated quartz crystals with neat inclusions of green chlorite and yellow/tan clay. This is one of those specimens that's nice to hold and turn around to observe the inclusions. Dimensions are 3 3/4" x 1 1/4" x 3". $145.          
thumbnail Item PS23 - AMETHYST - Diamond Hill Mine, Antreville, South Carolina; more than a dozen amethyst crystals, the largest of which is 2 1/2" tall, sit partially on a layer of small quartz crystal covered matrix. This is a fairly good piece, as (too) many of the pieces from this locale are damaged. Measurements are 5 1/2" x 4" x 4 1/2". $165.          
thumbnail Item PS24 - LIMONITE on SMOKY QUARTZ - Rist Mine, Hiddenite, North Carolina; a large, doubly-terminated smoky quartz has a 2 1/4" growth of limonite attached to one side. Dimensions are 7" x 4" x 4". Time to offer this at a great price.... $155.          
thumbnail Item PS25 - HYALITE OPAL - Chalk Mountain, Spruce Pine, North Carolina; a great crystallized specimen of this highly fluorescent material! Most of the pieces on the market are simply a layer of hyalite over matrix; not one that is crystals (yes, I sell the "layer" ones too). Measures 2" x 1 1/2" x 1". $59.          
thumbnail Item PS26 - SPINEL - Mogok, Burma; a sharp, octahedral, ruby-red crystal stands out against the white background. Note that spinels are fluorescent too. This crystal is .5 cm in length and in great shape. $40.          
thumbnail Item PS27 - EPIDOTE - Pinos Altos, Baja California, Mexico; a 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 2" epidote-rich matrix piece is loaded with deep olive-green, high-lustre crystals. Specimen was part of the recent Paul Burton collection purchase. $27.          
thumbnail Item PS28 - AQUAMARINE - Minas Gerais, Brazil; a 1 3/4" long, terminated aqua crystal with really good clarity. Note that this isn't a complete crystal, meaning that there's breakage on the back side (it could however be some great cutting material if so desired). Crystal is 1 1/8" wide. $85.          
thumbnail Item PS29 - SMOKY QUARTZ with RUTILE and MICA- North American Emerald Mine, Hiddenite, North Carolina; a 2 3/4" long, terminated smoky quartz crystal shows plenty of included rutile and minor mica near it's base. Crystal clarity is good as is condition of crystal. There is one place where another crystal came in contact with this piece, but that's re-healed (and has quite a bit of rutile grown over where the crystal came away from). $135.          
thumbnail Item PS30 - SPHALERITE on CALCITE- Zacatecas, Mexico; from the recent aquisition of Paul Burton's mineral collection, this specimen is a cabinet-sized specimen of small, high-lustre sphalerite crystals and tan-colored calcite rhombs that have grown on a 7 1/2" x 6" x 5 1/2" matrix piece. Condition is good. $100.          
thumbnail Item PS31 - AMBER - Santander Province, Columbia; a nice, golden-yellow, transparant piece of amber, measuring 1 3/4" x 1" x 3/4". Condition is very good. $105.          
thumbnail Item PS32 - BERYL - Ray Mine, Yancey County, North Carolina; two large, light-green beryl crystals are exposed in a quartz/mica-rich matrix piece. Largest crystal is more than 1" long, with full specimen measurements at 3 1/4" x 3" x 2 1/2". $59.          
thumbnail Item PS33 - GARNET - Ray Mine, Yancey County, North Carolina; a 3/8" garnet crystal is exposed in a 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" chunk of quartz/mica matrix. I usually see beryls from this location; not the garnets, so this is an "oddity". $25.          
thumbnail Item PS34 - AZURITE and MALACHITE - Bou Bekker, Oujda-Angad Province, Morocco; a colorful combination of these copper minerals. Specimen measures 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" x 2 1/2", and condition is good. $65.
