Item #A1

Incredibly iridescent specimen of laboratory grown Native Bismuth!
These are usually found as small specimens displaying incredibly sharp crystallization and a gorgeous rainbow iridescence.
These laboratory crystals are grown from molten Bismuth. As the Bismuth is super-cooled, the atoms arrange to create an
fine triagonal crystal structure. The iridescent rainbow of colors is caused by light scattering off the thin layers of Bismuth
oxide formed when the hot surfaces react with the air. One of the largest and most aesthetic examples I've seen recently.
From Germany.
Measures 6.5 cm by 5.1 cm by 3.7 cm in total size.

Item #A4

Very rare specimen of Orange Creedite on Calcite matrix!
Orange Creedites are scarce. Orange Creedites on matrix are rare. Orange Creedites on
a matrix which displays Calcite crystals are almost unheard of. Actually, this is the first I've
ever seen. There are two crystal balls on the matrix, with the largest at the top measuring
5 cm in size. The smaller ball below measures 2.5 cm. The crystals which comprise each ball are
bright orange and transparent-gemmy. The specimen is well trimmed with only a single edge contact.

There are two translucent rhombs here, attached in the middle. They display
complete crystal faces and a strong luster with the only cleave being on the

that is well known for fine Rhodochrosites but very few ever come to market.

Item #A7

Bright yellow tabular crystals of Barite perched atop two large Calcite crystals!
There's also some Fluorite in the mix here but the main draw are the Barite crystals perched
atop and draping over the two nearly 3 cm Calcite crystals. I don't see too many of these combos
from Spain which is what attracted me to the specimen. Overall, it's in very good condition with
almost all contacts limited to only the back side, out of view along the trimming edge there.

The matrix is covered on all sides by sharp, lustrous crystals of Pyromorphite
which appears individually and in spiral clusters. The largest crystals measure

the matrix opened and allowed for larger crystal size. In very good condition with

Unique specimen featuring Native Silver inside Mohawkite vugs!

discovered in the Mohawk-Ahmeek area of Keweenaw County, Michigan, making this the type
locality for the mineral. This specimen displays colorful surfaces which are typically irregular
and naturally polished. Tucked away in small vugs are lustrous sheets of Native Silver, making
this a pretty rare combination specimen. I can't recall seeing another like it at any of the shows.

Item #A13

Gorgeous specimen of gemmyAmber loaded with termites, a beetle, and weird fibrous formations!
This is a fairly large, small cabinet sized specimen and it is full of insects. I can see numerous termites
along with a beatle, and a bizarre fibrous-cotton like material, but I'm sure there is much more inside this large,
transparent Amber if one takes the time to examine every inclusion. The interior of this specimen is pure natural
design with numerous clusters of small bubbles and pillars against a glistening backdrop of shapes and textures
showing through from the back side. The interior glows through the polished surfaces. Sits upright without a stand.
From Boyacá Department, Colombia.
Dates from the Pleistocene (up to 2 million years old) to the Lower Miocene (about 20 million years old).

This is the first of these that I've seen in years and the Barite crystals are the largest I've ever seen
from this locality. They glow a deep golden coloration and are gemmy to translucent (more gemmy at
or near the edges and tips), with a strong surface glassy luster. The Stibnite sprays jut outwards near
the lower right and are complete and undamaged. A very attractive combo that is almost impossible to
find at the shows these days. This specimen came from an older collection and is in excellent condition.

Item #A22

VERY RARE Iron-Nickel (IAB) Meteorite from the Odessa, Texas impact crater!
Despite the fact that the Odessa impact is not as well known as the crater near
Winslow, Arizona, it was still a sizable impact and one of the most unusual in that
it came in at a very shallow angle and was more of a ricochet than a direct impact.
The end result was a crater measuring around 175 yards in width and 33 yards in depth.
This specimen represents a fragment of the main body and is the first I've seen in years.
It displays a beautiful crust and several impressive regmaglypt impressions in the surface.
