COPPER6 - Native Copper with Barite
$ 2500.00
SOLD
White Pine Mine, SW Ore Body, White Pine, Ontonogan Co., Michigan
large cabinet - 26.1 x 12.5 x 1.0 cm

This extremely aesthetic copper was collected 1986 by Bob Seasor in unit 94 of the S.W. Ore Body of the White Pine Mine in Michigan. Front and back sides are pictured. This is a flattened dendritic cluster of branching copper crystals made up of flat dodecahedrons. The Copper is lightly coated by either Chalcocite or Bornite which gives it a bluish patina. It is associated with massive barite. This piece is large (see pic where I am holding it), and yet it is well crystallized and has a beautiful patina. A classic example of fine crystallized copper from Michigan. From the collection of Bob Nowakowski (label included).

TOURM33 - Elbaite Tourmaline with Clevelandite
$ 325.00
SOLD
Stak Nala, Skardu Road, Haramosh Mts., Gilgit, Northern Areas, Pakistan
miniature - 4.1 x 2.8 x 2.5 cm

These four primary Tourmalines are interconnected with Cleavelandite. This was recently mined, and rushed to Munich where I carefully selected it for its color, clarity and lack of damage. This piece is quite unique because it shows off a blue cap beyond a band of green and a broader layer of yellow-green. This was the only blue cap example out of 125 specimens available. The tourmaline is bright and reflective. It's in great shape no damage to the four tourmalines. There is a very minor small fifthe crystal that has a little chipping, but no big deal.

Quartz Var. Amethyst from Karur, Chennai, Southern India [db_pics/pics/quartz32a.jpg] Quartz Var. Amethyst from Karur, Chennai, Southern India [db_pics/pics/quartz32b.jpg] Quartz Var. Amethyst from Karur, Chennai, Southern India [db_pics/pics/quartz32c.jpg]



QUARTZ32 - Quartz Var. Amethyst
$ 95.00
SOLD
Karur, Chennai, Southern India
miniature - 3.3 x 2.2 x 1.1 cm

Occasionally spectacular little examples of Amethyst scepters are produced in southern India. This is a good example of one. The Amethyst "heads," have sprouted up from a drusy whiter quartz base. They are perched nicely on the bed of drusy quartz which makes for an amazing miniature. The Amethyst is glassy and transparent with needles of probably Rutile or Lepidochrosite happening inside. There are even small gemmy herkimer diamond-like amethysts growing on the scepter head. It's in great shape, no visible dings. Most of the material from here is chipped a lot.
