ACANTHITE                      
$90

HEUBNERITE
$75
Locality: Mundo Nuevo Mine, Pallasca Prov., Ancash Dept., Peru
Size:  3.7 x 2.4 x 3 cm
Very fine Heubnerite and needle Quartz with the highest glassy luster.
Locality: Huanggang Mine, Chifeng, Keshiketeng Qi, Inner Mongolia, China
Size: 7.5 x 3.8 x 3.5 cm
Very dark indigo blue Fluorite crystals covering a Quartz crystal. The clear Quartz crystal is
very evident in the hexagonal cross section viewed on the bottom and has a second
generation of small opaque quartz crystals overgrowing the large crystal. The final growth of
the blue Fluorite crystals is mostly complete, with areas of the white quartz giving a very appealing
contrast. This specimen is pristine all around.

FLUORITE               
SOLD
#04
CHALCOPYRITE & SIDERITE              
SOLD
Locality: Kaiwu Mine, Hezhong, Guizhou Prov., China
Size:  9.5 x 5 x 3 cm
Extremely good coverage of Chalcopyrite crystals on Siderite blades.  The Chalcopyrites
have a nice slightly irridescent finish and the Siderites have a slighyly green tone.
Color and luster are fine and condition is very good, as seen. A great example from this
locale.
 
#66
FLUORITE
$50
Locality: Gachala, Cundinamarca Dept., Columbia
Size: 5.5  x 5.5 x 5 cm
A very large Pyrite crystal twinned to form the rare "iron cross" habit.  The crystal is complete all
around except for a contact spot on the bottom where ir sets. The crystal is coated with a thin
film of goethite that makes it appear as a pseudomorph, but the surface coating is very thin.
The twinning on this specimen is extremely good and it has almost no edge wear as can be
seen in the pics. This is from the small find a few years ago.
#09
PYRITE, Iron Cross Twin                
SOLD
Locality: Navidad Mine, Abasolo, Durango, Mexico
Size: 6.5 x 5 x 4.5 cm
A complete Creedite "ball" composed of hundreds of individual gemmy orange Creedite crystals.
This is a good clean ball and way above average even by yesterdays standards when smaller bruised
ones were quite plentiful. The mine has been closed for a few years now.
#08
CREEDITE
$90
Locality: Bouismas Mine, Bou Azzer Dist., Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Prov., Morocco
Size: 5 x 5 x 2.5 cm
Crystalized Silver on and in calcite matrix. Pictures show both sides, with Silver on both sides
and across the top. Check out the close up in the last pic.

MIMETITE
$25
Locality: Potosi Mine, West Camp, Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico
Size:  4.5 x 4 x 2.5 cm
A nice 'califlower' Mimetite from old workings at the Potosi Mine.
Nice golden color and sparkle. No damage.
Locality: Huanggang Mine, Chifeng, Keshiketeng Qi, Inner Mongolia, China
Size: 6 x 4 x 4 cm
Very dark indigo blue Fluorite crystals covering a Quartz crystal. The clear Quartz crystal is
very evident in the hexagonal cross section viewed on the bottom and has a second
generation of small opaque quartz crystals overgrowing the large crystal. The final growth of
the blue Fluorite crystals is mostly complete, with areas of the white quartz giving a very appealing
contrast. This specimen is pristine all around.
Locality: Killa Saifullah Dist., Balochistan, Pakistan
Size: 4  x 4.5 x 2.5 cm
Bright, lustrous, lemon yellow Brucite crystalized on matrix. Very good.
