C288 - Lawsonite $ 2500 (=~ ¥ 264950)
Mendocino Co., California, USA
cabinet - 11 x 8 x 4 cm


Lawsonite from Mendocino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c288a.jpg] Lawsonite from Mendocino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c288b.jpg] Lawsonite from Mendocino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c288c.jpg] Lawsonite from Mendocino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c288d.jpg]

Pinkish Lawsonite crystals on Glaucophane schist. I have had a number of these over the past few years, however none as good as this one. This was just released by the field collector, one of (if not the best) that he had held back. There are piles of crystals, with much more surficial relief than most. It's both good sized for the find AND by far the richest in terms of quantities of good crystals. And the crystals are big, reaching 1.4cm in width. Spectacular. Some saw cuts on back side.


C289 - Lawsonite $ 300 (=~ ¥ 31794)
Mendocino Co., California, USA
miniature - 3.5 x 2.8 x 2 cm

Pinkish Lawsonite crystals on Glaucophane schist. This was just released by the field collector, one of better quality pieces that he had held back. Main crystal is 1.1cm, sharp, and translucent.

Cubic light green Fluorite on and in a hollow, spherical group of Galena crystals. This unique specimen is known as the 'Miner's Headlamp' for it's resemblance to a miners helmet and headlamp.
