Incredibly flashy and quite aesthetic specimen which fully displays the crystal habit
of the large Danburite crystals beneath the micro-crystal coating of orange Quartz.

MIN#Denver2016-27 NEW!

Exceptional crystal-clear Fluorite dodecahedron perched between Green Quartz
(Hedenbergite included) and atop Calcite! The glassy Fluorite itself is pristine and very
lustrous, measuring nearly 4 cm across the front. A smaller sidecart crystal is incomplete
on the backside but this doesn't affect the large Fluorite. Most of the Green Quartz
crystals are terminated with the largest being doubly terminated. The Calcites near
the bottom add a nice touch to what is a very attractive specimen of bygone mining.

Denver2016-38CalciteDraviteMwajangaTanzania11cm.jpg (328695 bytes)

MIN#Denver2016-35 NEW!

RARE! Transparent golden crystals of Calcite on matrix from Tanzania!
This is the only pure Calcite specimen I've seen from Tanzania so they are definately not common
in the marketplace. The crystals are actually large transparent blades with crystal faces along the
front display side. In other words, the blades are flat on the back side and display modified faces on
front. The surfaces are flassy and lustrous with no visible contacting. An attractive and unique specimen.
Note - There are no photos of Calcite for this locality on mindat.org, attesting to its rarity!
From Mwajanga, Simanjiro District, Manyara Region, Tanzania.
Measures 11 cm by 8 cm by 7.3 cm in total size.

Denver2016-50PyrargyriteEurekaNevada38mm.jpg (380370 bytes)

MIN#Denver2016-36 NEW!

Ruby-red crystals of Pyrargyrite on matrix from Nevada!
This is probably the richest specimen of Pyrargyrite I've ever seen from the great state of Nevada.
Deep red crystals cover the front and sides of this specimen and the color of the crystals is so intense
that it's easy to see why this mineral has been called "Ruby Silver" in the past. The crystals measure
to .8 cm in size and are highly lustrous. Eureka County was named for the Greek term which translates
to "I have found it!" are was created when Silver was discovered there in the 1870's. Rare and choice!

From the Eureka Mining District, Eureka County, Nevada.
Measures 3.5 cm by 3.5 cm by 2.2 cm in total size.

Denver2016-84FluoriteXinyangChina22cm.jpg (474294 bytes)

MIN#Denver2016-37 NEW!

Large cabinet plate of forest green Fluorite crystals appearing as botryoidal surfaces on matrix!
This is a new find that is different than anything else I've seen from China. The crystals are small and gemmy
with a different shade of green. Under magnification I can see dozens of lustrous, stepped angular faces but
the crystals all come together to complete the botryoidal, rolling surfaces. This was one of the prettiest plates
from the new find in China. In excellent condition with an unusual color covered by rolling  luster and flash.

From the Xinyang Prefecture, Henan Province, China.
Measures 12.8 cm by 22 cm by 7.5 cm in total size.

Denver2016-73StibniteManhattanDistrictNevada95mm.jpg (389112 bytes)

MIN#Denver2016-38 NEW!

Exceptional plate of freestanding Stibnite crystals on matrix from a classic Nevada locality!
Easily one of the best examples of Stibnite from the old mining town of Manhattan, Nevada, this
specimen is unusually complete and free of contacting. Stibnite specimens from this locality are
so often found smashed and broken but most of these crystals are complete and terminated.
The incomplete crystal tips are well hidden among those which are pristine and the luster is
excellent throughout. This is a well balanced, very well trimmed plate with a great provenance.

From the White Caps Mine, Manhattan, Manhattan District, Toquima Range, Nye Co., Nevada.
Measures 5.2 cm by 10.5 cm by 10.8 cm in total size.
