RHODOCHROSITE3 - Rhodochrosite
$ 375.00

N'Chwanning II Mine, Kalahari manganese fields, Republic of South Africa
thumbnail - 1.9 x 1.6 x 1.3 cm

A hard-to-find thumbnail size gem Rhodochrosite! There are three major prismatic, scalenohedral crystals with white phantoms and naturally flat terminations. I recently pried this out of a friend's thumbnail collection with a generous trade. It has the code "TCRT2551" on the underside (my friend didn't know which collection it came out of). It weighs 21.76 carats = 4.35 grams. No damage, and there is a noticeable change in the color of the Rhodochrosite crystals... Before the white phantom it is a deeper flawless red, after the phantom, it becomes a lighter red.

It's rather translucent, and the color is better in person than the pics. Fine condition with a small flat section of contact in the upper left that is (not damaged).

QUARTZ51 - Quartz Var. Herkimer Diamond Cluster
$ 235.00
SOLD
Ace of Diamonds Mine, Herkimer County, New York
small cabinet - 5.2 x 4.8 x 3.0 cm

This unique Herkimer Diamond cluster is very clear and is naturally balanced, so it stands by itself even though each crystal is large and is headed at opposite 45 degree angles from the base. The larger crystal is slightly tabular (flat). It is elegant and adds artistic elevation to a display.

It appears to be a "natural," this means the crystals haven't been reconstructed using epoxy to regain their original growth structure. I just got this at an estate sale, so I wasn't able to inquire its exact history. It's pristine, no dings to mention. There's one small crystal in the back that is missing (it left its indentation). It weighs 71 grams.

Filipinas Larimar Mine, Los Checheses, Sierra de Barouco, Barahona Province, Dominican Republic
miniature - 4.8 x 3.3 x .8 cm

Larimar aka Blue Pectolite, is similar to petrified wood. It is only found in the Dominican Republic, and shares its distinctive color with the Caribean ocean. This piece is breathtaking. It has a rich blue color with great "spider web," patterning. It is thick at .8 cm, but it such high quality as to be 90% translucent with backlighting (see fourth pic for backlit example). It has an excellent polish, and a heavy "feel" when holding it. This example is not for jewelry, it is an amazing piece of Larimar for someone who wants a fine example. It weighs 36 grams.
