Translucent apple green Prehnite cast that formed over a flat, tabular Anhydrite that then dissolved away leaving this hollow cast. Botryoidal, translucent Prehnite forms over the front and back with the shape of the former Anhyrite easily seen when looking up from the opening in the bottom. A wonderful example from long ago, and not as jumbled as some larger pieces are - this is a nice distinct cast of a single large crystal.

Large hackly mass of Copper from the famous Copper mining area of Michigan. Weighs about 2.5 pounds. The nice thing about this piece, besides it's size, is that alot of the weight is towards the bottom and it stands up on it's own perfectly for display and is very stable.

Intensely colored blue Fluorite crystal from the La Barre Mine. The color is a pleasing deep blue, just what you would want in Fluorite, with lots of well defined phantoms. There is some edge wear but it's in good condition overall, and highly transparent. I think it looks nicer in person than the photos as you can see the depth and range of colors better. Comes with a custom Lucite base.
