Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254a.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254b.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254c.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254d.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254e.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254f.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/ts254g.jpg]

Divergent sprays of Azurite crystals on a bit of white matrix. These are the uncommon GEM Azurites from Tsumeb that show great color and transparency when backlit.  Good pointed termination on most crystals.  A few crystals have ragged, unterminated ends but these are natural and not damaged. A rare old treasure.


J684 - Dioptase with Plancheite $ 2500 (=~ ¥ 258799)
Tsumeb, Namibia
miniature - 4.5 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm

Highly aesthetic Tsumeb Dioptase, decidedly more colorful than most due to the presence of the baby blue Plancheite spheres. The Dioptase occurs as both small drusy crystals coating Calcite rhombs and larger, highly lustrous crystals to 1.8cm.


J414 - Dioptase with Calcite $ 275 (=~ ¥ 28468)
Tsumeb, Namibia

Dioptase crystals to 1cm with larger, translucent Calcite crytals to 1.5cm Some damage present but in overall good condition. Typical Tsumeb Dioptase/Calcite specimens have white, rhombic Calcite. This one is a little different with translucent to transparent scalenohedral Calcite crystals.

Yellow Fluorite cubes to 3.5cm on edge with attached clear Quartz crystals, so clear they practically dissappear on the surfaces of the Fluorite. Translucent to transparent with good color saturation.

Bright and transparent Quartz crystal with inclusions of Brookite crystals. This is an excellent example with long Brookite crystals, some of which are fully included in the Quartz and others that partially extend out of the Quartz. The central Brookite extends from the base of the Quartz right up the middle to the very tip of the Quartz! The Quartz is also mostly recrystallized on the base. Great crystal!!


J713 - Stilbite $ 350 (=~ ¥ 36232)
Maharashtras State, India
small cabinet - 8.5 x 8 x 4 cm

Stilbite from Maharashtras State, India [db_pics/pics/J713a.jpg] Stilbite from Maharashtras State, India [db_pics/pics/J713b.jpg] Stilbite from Maharashtras State, India [db_pics/pics/J713c.jpg] Stilbite from Maharashtras State, India [db_pics/pics/J713d.jpg]

Double-terminated Stilbite on a matrix of drusy Quartz crystals. This is not your average Stilbite, with much better quality and presence than most. The crystal has a well saturated peach coloration and is 5.5cm tall with smaller crystals sticking out the sides. Stands up dramatically on the Quartz for great display. Good from all sides and undamaged. A really good one!!

Olive green color Prehnite crystals with sharp radial clusters overall. A small amount of silver-gray Graphite can be seen mainly on the bottom. An excellent quality specimen with good luster and very translucent. No major damage and only minimal chipping here and there. Though darker in color due to Graphite inclusions, this is an excellent specimen with large, well defined crystals that I value at $300.
