Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d114a.jpg] Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d114b.jpg] Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d114c.jpg] Rhodochrosite from Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d114d.jpg]

Rare and aesthetic specimen of bright pink Rhodochrosite crystals attached to the tip a long single Rhodochrosite or Quartz crystal that has been pseudomorphed.  There are also small transparent Fluorite crystals near the base.  This is a 'one off' specimen I bought from a Mexican miner years ago and haven't seen other like it. Pristine and undamaged.

'Moonstone' on Aegerine from Patricia Mine, Delicias, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d118c.jpg]

Cluster of Feldspar crystals with an irridescent blue on the narrow faces grown around a single black Aegerine crystal. Reminds me of a guitar. Very few localities produce true moonstone crystals.

D126 - Mottramite over/after Quartz $ 180 (=~ € 148)
Mina Oujela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
small cabinet - 5.5 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm

Oujela Mottramite is common enough, but I've never seen a specimen from here of Mottramite over Quartz crystals. There are numerous crystals of Quartz that are either covered by or replaced by Mottramite. There is Quartz at the base of the specimen, but when I look closely at the bottoms of the crystals at the edge, I can see no Quartz in the cores, which leads me to believe the Quartz has been replaced by Mottramite.


D128 - Fluorite $ 400 (=~ € 328)
Mina Oujela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
