A very large, beautifully transparent wheel of sparkling Adamite crystals with a small amount of accenting Limonite matrix.
A gorgeous segregated crust of lustrous, gemmy, yellow-green Siderite blades and translucent light gray Dolomite rhombs, the latter richly dressed with bright, brassy, tabular, hexagonal Pyrrhotite crystals - from the famous 1960's find at the Morro Velho Gold Mine of Brazil. Seldom available in this quality.
Beautiful clusters of Green Quartz richly included with Hedenbergite. A classic specimen from Serifos Island
Well balanced combination of excellent, silvery Pyrite crystals and flattened rhombohedral opalescent Calcite crystals.
Great specimen from a limited new find in the Erongo Mountains of Namibia with bi-colored Beryl crystals with green tips to 1.5 cm shooting out in all directions from a matrix of acicular Schorl.
A specimen of old French Hematite that you will rarely see for sale. This is a large rich cluster of blocky, striated Hematite crystals on matrix
Super cluster of thick glass clear blades of Barite, with beautiful greenish tint, shooting out from the matrix.
Superb specimen of a tetragonal dipyramidal Scheelite crystal with fine luster wonderfully perched on white Albite crystals on silvery Muscovite. Great presentation of an "isolated" crystal on Albite, which is rarely seen.
Curved, semi-transparent waxy-lustered Calcites on a plate of lustrous light brown Siderite crystals. In fine condition.
Large mass of botryoidal Malachite. Has an unusual dark coating on some of the outgrowths, which could be iron growth within the Malachite or perhaps heterogenite. In very good condition.
A super specimen of glassy pinwheel and fan shaped Hemimorphite crystals on Limonite.
From a "first ever recent find" of Mottramite in the Ojuela Mine. This specimen is comprised of dark green, micro-crystalline, botryoidal formed Mottramite. It is one of the better specimens from this new find. No damage.
Mina Ojuela, Level 35, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
18 x 12 x 9 cm
A striking and aesthetic Milky Quartz crystal cluster from an uncommon Connecticut locality. Translucent, frosted and lustrous crystals with the prism faces having a drusy Quartz overgrowth. Essentially pristine, except for a trivial bit of periphery wear at the base. Quartz from Diamond Ledge is nicknamed “corncob” Quartz by collectors because of the overgrowths of smaller crystals creeping up the sides of large crystals, resembling kernels of corn.

Float Copper (Polished on one side)
Glacial Drift, Houghton County, Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan, USA
23 x 10 x 2 cm
Ex-Hugh Hammerslag Collection
Float native Copper specimens are natural. Glaciers more than 10,000 years ago scraped the rocks of the Keweenaw Peninsula and they picked up native Copper from deposits at the surface. When the glaciers melted, pieces of naturally smooth native Copper were deposited along with sands and gravels. The gree colors are natural alterations that formed due to exposure to air and water. Areas of the specimen have been hand polished to expose some of the Copper. Float is a local term indicating that the native Copper once "floated" in a glacier.
