Aquamarine with Schorl from Erongo, Namibia [db_pics/pics/aqua1a.jpg.jpg] Aquamarine with Schorl from Erongo, Namibia [db_pics/pics/aqua1b.jpg.jpg] Aquamarine with Schorl from Erongo, Namibia [db_pics/pics/aqua1c.jpg.jpg]



AQUA1 - Aquamarine with Schorl
$ 375.00 SOLD
Erongo, Namibia
miniature - 3.2 x 3 x 2.7 cm

This piece has the wonderful contrast of two different crystals. The Aqua is gemmy and exhibits an excellent color saturation. The opposing Schorl is jet black and at a slightly different angle to the Aqua. The two combine to present an aesthetic match that exemplifies the uniqueness of Erongo aqua combinations.  The piece is in good condition, with only a "wilbur" micro ding on the rim of the termination of the aqua.

Garnet var. Hessonite from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada [db_pics/pics/hessonite1a.jpg] Garnet var. Hessonite from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada [db_pics/pics/hessonite1b.jpg] Garnet var. Hessonite from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada [db_pics/pics/hessonite1c.jpg]



HESSONITE1 - Garnet var. Hessonite
$ 175.00 SOLD
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada
thumbnail - 1.6 x 1.3 x 1 cm

This crystal cluster is bright, gemmy and a floater to boot! Hessonites from the Jeffrey have such a distinctive color, that when they are as good as this piece, they glow. The internal clarity makes this garnet look great even in low light, where it takes on a richer cognac color. The Jeffrey mine has been closed to collecting for many years, as I've heard NASA has leased it to mine asbestos for use in their heat shields. It's in remarkable condition without any visible damage.

Azurite with Malachite from Nevada Lode, La Sal, San Juan Co. Utah, USA [db_pics/pics/azurite1a.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Nevada Lode, La Sal, San Juan Co. Utah, USA [db_pics/pics/azurite1b.jpg]



AZURITE1 - Azurite with Malachite
$ 135.00 SOLD
Nevada Lode, La Sal, San Juan Co. Utah, USA
small cabinet - 5.2 x 4.2 x 2.7 cm

Azurite with Malachite from Utah. This piece came to us through Hawthorneden, because Frank had bought an entire room full of Azurites from this deposit in the late 1980's. Not much has been found since then, and in the 1990's Bisbee roses were widely available, then China started producing in the late 1990's. Most people who see our assortment are surprised to see the location. This piece has great color, is reflective and has small patches of Malachite that add character. Perhaps it's a stretch but in the first pic, I begin to see the portrait of a bear's face (or lion)...the second pic is the back side of the Azurite. It's in excellent condition with no eye-catching dings.

TOURM3 - Tourmaline var. Elbaite
$ 495.00 SOLD NET
Cruzeiro Mine, Minas Gerais, Brazil
small cabinet - 5.1 x .7 x .7 cms

This is a classic example of multi-color Brazilian Tourmaline. It is also a "sceptre" crystal form. The stem is purple, then becomes blue, then green and finally the termination is pink! It was found at the Cruzeiro Mine, near San Jose de Safira, probably in the mid to late 1990's. I acquired this from Steve Smale, the well known mineral collector, however far more famous as a Mathematician. (fields metal recipient back in the 60's!). I included a pic of his label that comes with it, and yes his price was $600 for this piece. It weighs 4.7 grams.
