AF673 - Tanzanite SOLD
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania
small cabinet - 6.0 x 1.5 x 0.9 cm


Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af673a.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af673b.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af673c.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af673d.jpg]

Super, large double terminated Tanzanite. This is quite simply the best DT Tanzanite I have ever seen, and I have been told by others who deal in Tanzanian minerals that it is the best they have ever seen also. It has good size, good color, and a nice uniform shape. Perfect and undamaged except for one small area near one termination.  A must for a serious Merelani collection or for a double-terminated minerals collection.


AF51 - Poldervaartite SOLD
N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa
miniature - 3.3 x 2.5 x 2 cm
ex.  Matthew Webb


Poldervaartite from N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa [db_pics/pics/af51a.jpg] Poldervaartite from N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa [db_pics/pics/af51b.jpg]

Complete, radial group of crystals on matrix. One of the rare species the Kalahari manganese fields are known for. An excellent example of the species.


AF53 - Rhodochrosite $ 600 SOLD
Moanda Mine, Moanda, Haut-Ogooue, Gabon
small cabinet - 5.5 x 3.3 x 2 cm


Rhodochrosite from Moanda Mine, Moanda, Haut-Ogooue, Gabon [db_pics/pics/af53a.jpg] Rhodochrosite from Moanda Mine, Moanda, Haut-Ogooue, Gabon [db_pics/pics/af53b.jpg] Rhodochrosite from Moanda Mine, Moanda, Haut-Ogooue, Gabon [db_pics/pics/af53c.jpg]

Translucent, scalenohedral Rhodochrosite crystals covering matrix. A fine example from this uncommon Rhodo locality.


AF54 - Anglesite $ 150 SOLD
Touissit Mine, Morocco
small cabinet - 6.5 x 4.5 x 2 cm
ex.  Matthew Webb


Anglesite from Touissit Mine, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af54a.jpg] Anglesite from Touissit Mine, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af54b.jpg] Anglesite from Touissit Mine, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af54c.jpg]

Glassy yellow Anglesite crystals to 2.5cm. This is an interesting formation of essentially nothing but Anglesite crystals. It's a thin plate composed of crystals, with more crystals sticking up off the face. There are a few broken crystals present as shown in photos, but the word from returning dealers from Morocco is that Anglesite prices have gone way up, and a piece like this could not be bought in Morocco today for this price.


AF55 - Ettringite SOLD
N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa
small cabinet - 5.1 x 1.3 x 1.3 cm
ex.  Matthew Webb


Ettringite from N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa [db_pics/pics/af55a.jpg] Ettringite from N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa [db_pics/pics/af55b.jpg] Ettringite from N'Chwanning Mine, Kuruman, South Africa [db_pics/pics/af55c.jpg]

Unusual formation of stacked Ettringite crystals. We are used to seeing these scattered across the surface of Manganite and not forming such a tall column of crystals as this one. This is a very interesting formation, and likely the reason why Mathew Webb added it to his collection. Valued at $100-$200.


A591 - Vesuvianite $ 180 SOLD
Fushan Mine, Hebei Prov., China
thumbnail - 2.6 x 2.4 x 1.3 cm

This specimen was on display as part ofthe Crystalline Treasures exhibit at the University of Arizona and comes with label. Tabular, root-beer brown Vesuvianite crystal, complete all around and undamaged. These used to be found fairly commonly with Chinese dealers at shows, but they almost always have some degree of damaged edge. This one however, is pristine.

Paprok, Afghanistan
small cabinet - 5.4 x 1.0 x 0.7 cm
