Denver2016-17WulfeniteLosLamentos-Mexico84mm.jpg (204104 bytes)
Item #A2

Fine specimen featuring glassy-lustrous Wulfenite tabs on Calcite matrix!
This is a good looking Los Lamentos specimen and the thick Wulfenite tabular crystals are in excellent
condition with barely a contract anywhere. Anyone who knows Wulfenites knows that so often these
crystals are chipped and contacted and they do not forgive damage. Once a tabular Wulfenite is contacted,
they show it all too well. This is why I always look for the cleanest, most pristine specimens I can find and
this is a specimen that is sure to please. Very lustrous and glassy crystal surfaces with an aesthetic display.
From the Los Lamentos Mts (Sierra de Los Lamentos), Mun. de Ahumada, Chihuahua, Mexico.
Measurements - 8.3 cm by 5.6 cm by 7.7 cm in total size (small cabinet).

Tucson2016-159MorganiteAlbiteDaraiPechKunarProvinceAfghanistan.jpg (291737 bytes)
Item #A15

Deeply colored Beryl var. Morganite crystal perched atop Cleavelandite matrix!
I don't see many Morganites with this depth of color. The crystal itself measures 7 cm in size
and features brilliant, glassy crystal faces. The interior is loaded with gemminess and the color
could best be described as a deep, vibrant orangy-pink, almost peach color. The color is consistant
throughout the entire Morganite crystal with a light frosting present on the top horizontal face. The
gem crystal is complete on all sides with only a couple of tiny internal stress lines of natural origin.
A Morganite of this quality is a rare prize indeed. This would make a great cabinet centerpiece.

Item #A17

Amazing specimen featuring a Native Copper Amygdaloid Pipe on matrix!
A unique specimen - Amygdaloid refers to the opening in the matrix which has been filled
with a flow of Native Copper. When the Native Copper cooled, it formed a "pipe" inside the
matrix, or a double pipe as in this case. There are two pipes which come together halfway
above the matrix, forming a specimen which is both quite scarce and incredibly aesthetic.

Item #A22

Super bright and lustrous Native Silver after Allargentum and Dyscrasite on Calcite!

interesting shape which I think resembles the claws and tail of a scorpion. The specimen can be displayed from either
side and displays the sharp crystals on both the front and back. The structure is dendritic which well formed crystals at
the ends and forming a good portion of the dendrite. The stark white Calcite and green matrix adds the perfect backdrop.
