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.

Proustite is a sulfosalt mineral consisiting of silver sulfarsenide. This specimen was found in Nieder Schlema Germany probably over a hundred years ago (as is typical of pieces from this locality).

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

TSAVORITE4 - Garnet var. Tsavorite
$ 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.

Dioptase from Altyn-Tyube, Karagandy Oblast, Kazakhstan [db_pics/pics/dioptase1a.jpg]



DIOPTASE1 - Dioptase
$ 650.00
Altyn-Tyube, Karagandy Oblast, Kazakhstan
cabinet - 15 x 9 x 7 cm

This is a large dramatic example of Dioptase. It exhibits the best color from Kazakhstan, a rich emerald green. The dioptase from here is typically formed in seams within the host rock, and the crystals are commonly small, but intensely brilliant. 972 grams/ over 2 pounds. (I'm not quiting my day job to become a hand model, it just helps to know how large this piece is).

Herkimer diamonds with Spinel Pendant from Ace of Diamonds Mine, Herkimer County, New York [db_pics/pics/herkbottle1a.jpg]



HERKBOTTLE1 - Herkimer diamonds with Spinel Pendant
$ 65.00 SOLD NET
Ace of Diamonds Mine, Herkimer County, New York
thumbnail - 2.3 x 1.1 x 1.1 cm

Once in awhile at the bottom of pockets in Herkimer, there will be a sand that includes perfect tiny micro herkimer diamonds. Over many years I've picked out these herkimers from the sand and graded out the perfectly clear, complete crystals. The pendant is a hand-blown pyrex bottle topped with a sterling silver cap. I added a cherry red gem spinel crystal from Burma, to add contrast both in form and color. Each one is completely unique as these are labor intensive, original creations. The pic is a consisitent representative of what we currently have in stock.

QUARTZ65 - Quartz var. herkimer diamonds
$ 2500.00 SOLD NET
Ace of Diamonds Mine, Herkimer County, New York
thumbnail - 11 x 7.5 x 4 cm

This is a gorgeous Herk Cluster, mined in the mid 1980's. A central large crystal is flanked by over a dozen bright clear herks. It has a light charcoal-smoky hue, but is really gemmy. Good ones like this are few and far between. As is the case with all large clusters, the crystals have been reattached ("Re-constructed") to exactly how they naturally grew in the pocket.
