CHAROITE2 - Charoite Trillion Cabochon

SOLD
Murunskii Massif, Chara and Tokko Rivers Confluence, Aldan Shield, Saha Republic (Sakha Republic; Yakutia), Eastern-Siberian Region, Russia
thumbnail - 2.2 x 2.2 x 2.2 cm

I acquired a small parcel of trillion cabs over 12 years ago when Charoite was actively mined, and put them away knowing the mining would cease over the following several years. This represents the very best quality ever found. It shows long deep purple striations that are highly reflective.  It weighs 3.2 grams (16 carats).

Quartz Var. Rose from Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/quartz63a.jpg] Quartz Var. Rose from Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/quartz63b.jpg]



QUARTZ63 - Quartz Var. Rose
$ 2750.00
SOLD NET
Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
small cabinet - 7.25 x 5 x 2.5 cm

This is the best Rose quartz I've ever seen in this size range. I acquired it from a european collection, and it was probably mined in the late 1970's. The color saturation is off-the-charts pink. It's a total floater (fully crystallized), and will fit into any "best-of" collection, for someone who wants a top rose quartz. It's bright, reflective and demonstrates a range of crystallization and an interesting shape (think Tiara). The largest crystal is 1.5 cm. No damage.

Rhodochrosite and Tetrahedrite from Pincushion 2 pocket, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado [db_pics/pics/rhodochrosite9a.jpg] Rhodochrosite and Tetrahedrite from Pincushion 2 pocket, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado [db_pics/pics/rhodochrosite9b.jpg] Rhodochrosite and Tetrahedrite from Pincushion 2 pocket, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado [db_pics/pics/rhodochrosite9c.jpg]



RHODOCHROSITE9 - Rhodochrosite and Tetrahedrite
SOLD
Pincushion 2 pocket, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado
miniature - 4.6 x 3.5 x 3 cm

This is a jewel Rhodochrosite rhomb nestled within Tetrahedrite and needle quartz crystals. The Rhodo is bright and red, sharp and damage-free. The Sweet Home mine in Alma, Colorado produced the best Rhodochrosite crystals in the world (although I absolutley love N'Chwanning Rhodos as well), this miniature was expertly trimmed creating a pleasant curve, and the contrast between black and red is excellent. the mine closed about 8 years ago, and good Rhodos are scarce and very expensive (this piece would typically be $2,500+)

ADAMITE8 - Adamite on Limonite
$ 295.00

Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
cabinet - 10 x 9 x 9 cm

The Ojuela Mine is perhaps the most classsic well known mine in Mexico. Adamite was found here in the 1970's and again around 2009 when water levels dropped to reveal the levels where Adamite formed. This piece shows bright yellow acicular crystals forming inside a vug in the Limonite. The sprays average 1.5 cm long. An attractive specimen.

EMERALD8 - Beryl Var. Emeralds
$ 395.00
SOLD NET
Malyshevo, Ekaterinburg, Urals Region, Russia
miniature - 3.3 x 2.7 x 1.6 cm

This classic location has produced on and off for over a hundred years. Good colored emeralds are a bit hard to source, as most are a lighter green and not so gemmy. This specimen is the exeption, as both crystals are "emerald" green and gemmy. The longest emerald is 2.25 cm long by .8 cm wide. The fat one is 1.6 x 1.3 cm wide. No damage.
