Himalaya Mine, Mesa Grande, San Diego Co., California

This  tourmaline has rich gemmy color saturation, and a brilliant, flat termination. It is choice quality, as other rubellite from here is often a brownish red and not as valuable.

Opal var. Hyalite from San Luis Potosi, Mexico [db_pics/pics/opal14a.jpg] Opal var. Hyalite from San Luis Potosi, Mexico [db_pics/pics/opal14b.jpg]



OPAL14 - Opal var. Hyalite
$ 135.00
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
small cabinet - 5.3 x 5 x 2.3 cm

This opal has a beautiful contrast of clear internal characteristics, and orange and red highlights within the piece. The clear areas will fluoresce green under short wave. The red/orange areas do not fluoresce as the iron quenches the fluorescence.  It has a range of different sized boytroidal bubbles, and a nice depth within the stone. No damage.

CERRUSITE2 - Cerrusite facetted stone
$ 1400.00 SOLD NET
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
thumbnail - 3 x 3 x 2 cm

Years ago I acquired a large piece of cerrusite gem rough from the Charlie Key collection. Jay Medici is an accomplished cutter in Ohio, who as a student of Art Grant, specializes in cutting soft stones such as calcite, fluorite, and cerrusite. This stone is bright and holds many internal rainbow reflections, as Cerrusite has a high refractive index. It is gemmy with minor inclusions and a light cognac color, quite indicative of Tsumeb cerrusite.  It weighs a masssive 253 carats! This is a great stone for a cut stone collector or as an impressive pairing with a fine specimen.

There is one repair to this primary crystal that is imperceptible.

$ 625.00 SOLD
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania
thumbnail - 1.6 x 1.3 x .7 cm

Bright, gemmy complete floater. It weighs 15 carats. It has many natural crystal faces that make it appear facetted, but is natural. In normal light it is slightly lighter in color than pictured. Gem crystals like this have become popular in custom, high gauge wire wraps. This would be perfect for one given it has a natural, terminated flat back.
