MIN#TUCSON2018-101 Sold!

Exceptional combination specimen of greenish-golden Topaz crystals with Amazonite together on Smoky Quartz!
This is an amazing specimen, the likes of which I have never seen before. Nothing of this calibre is listed on mindat.org
and I know of no other Namibian Topaz specimens in combination with Amazonite that feature crystals of this size! The
largest Topaz at top measures 5.5 cm in size. It sits atop an Amazonite to its right and a large, terminated Smoky Quartz
crystal to its left. Left of the Smoky is a beautifully formed Amazonite crystal that offers the perfect companion for the
Topaz in regards to size matching and positioning on the matrix. This is a MAJOR specimen and is easily the finest of
this variety that I've ever offered from Namibia. A second Topaz is located near the bottom. In excellent condition.
From the Klein Spitzkopje granite stock, Spitzkopje Area, Karibib, Erongo Region, Namibia.
Measures 11.5 cm by 13.8 cm by 8.4 cm in total size.

MIN#TUCSON2018-102 NEW!

Large, terminated crystals of grape-jelly colored Quartz var. Amethyst crystals laying horizontally atop matrix!
A specimen that is both unique and gorgeous in that the purple Amethyst crystals are laying atop one another
instead of standing upright like every other Brandberg specimen I've seen or sold. The crystals are all phantomed
and many are also doubly terminated! In excellent condition with glassy-lustrous surfaces and great aesthetics.
From the Goboboseb Mts, Brandberg Area, D?ures, Erongo Region, Namibia.
Measures 9 cm by 18.2 cm by 9.1 cm in total size.

MIN#TUCSON2018-103 NEW!

Superb specimen featuring wires of Native Silver rising up above Calcite matrix!
Wire Silvers from the Cobalt Area are extremely rare and higher sought after because they just didn't occur very often.
Most of the Native Silver found was found locked away in rich veins or surrounding matrix. Every now and then ones finds
a small wire Silver but they are few and far between and the most impressive examples tend to come from the Keeley-Frontier
Mine. These are usually thin, frilly wires, usually off matrix but they are good quality wires regardless. To find a specimen the
likes of this one, with its thick, sturdy wire rising up from a white Calcite matrix is incredible on many levels. This specimen
looks more like a Silver from Norway or Germany than it does from Cobalt. Crystalline Silver is also draped across the front
of the matrix like decorative ribbons. A tremendous matrix Silver which is easily on of the finest I've ever seen from Canada.
From the Keeley-Frontier Mine, South Lorrain Township, Cobalt-Gowganda region, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada.
Measures 6.4 cm by 8.2 cm by 4.1 cm in total size.

MIN#TUCSON2018-104 NEW!

Spectacular combination of yellow Barite tabs perched atop Fluorite cubes on matrix!
Wow! This specimen speaks for itself. From the Ross Lillie collection, this amazing Barite on Fluorite
would probably have to rate as the best I've seen in this size range. The Barite is pristine with a deep
yellow coloration and numerous tabs surrounding the main tab which measures 3.4 cm in size. They sit
atop a matrix which is covered by gemmy lavender Fluorite cubes for a presentation that is stunning.
From the Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub-District, Hardin Co., Illinois.
Measures 7 cm by 6.5 cm by 5.7 cm in total size.

There are some slight accents of small Muscovites along the top right edge and atop the Albite matrix.

MIN#TUCSON2018-105 NEW!

Beautiful and graceful specimen featuring gem Spessartine Garnets on Microcline with bluish Cleavelandite!
This is art - nature's art! Perfect crystals of Spessartine Garnet sit atop slanted Microcline which is balanced
to the far right by a dramtic, almost flowing series of bluish-tinted Cleavelandite. They look like ocean waves
to me but the visual effect is incredible and quite graceful as well. In excellent condition with no detractions.
From the Little Three Mine (Little 3 mine), Ramona, Ramona District, San Diego Co., California.
Measures 6.7 cm by 8.5 cm by 4 cm in total size.

MIN#TUCSON2018-106 Sold!

Exceptional large cabinet specimen of gem Native Sulfur crystals inside a matrix pocket!
This is easily the largest MI Sulfur specimen I've ever offered and I've sold many over the past two decades.
Actually, it's the largest specimen I've seen outside of the A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum and I think it's
larger than the specimen they have on display. The crystals formed inside a matrix pocket and were very
well protected by the concave structure. The crystals are glassy and translucent to transparent, measuring
to 2.5 cm in size. A second smaller pocket can be seen along the lower right edge of the matrix. In excellent
condition overall with a wonderfully rich presentation that is also self standing. But for the matrix, this could
almost be mistaken for a Sicilian Sulfur specimen and would make an incredible centerpiece in any collection.
From the Maybee Quarry, Maybee, Monroe County, Michigan.
Measures 22 cm by 17.4 cm by 13.3 cm in total size.
