Update for October 19, 2009

Update for October 11, 2009

Bournonite from the Machacamarca mine, Bolivia !



We have just updated our website with a page of superb quality Bournonite specimens from the famous Machacamarca mine in Bolivia. The standard of quality of these specimens is not only superb from the Machacamarca mine, but virtually any mine in South America. I honestly feel that the FINEST specimens from this mine hold their own against the historic specimens from Cornwall, England, or even the contemporary specimens from the Yaogangixan mine in China.

Tourmaline specimens from the Himalaya mine !! (SOLD OUT)

 

We have updated our site with four very good quality and attractive Tourmaline crystals from the world renowned Himalaya mine in San Diego County, California.  All of the specimens in this update are UN-repaired, UN-restored, and UN-doctored, which is significant for this material, as many major specimens have some sort of restorations due to the nature of the pockets in which they formed.  Each specimen is collector quality and these pieces are becoming highly sought after in today's market as the locality is no longer producing specimens of this quality and caliber.  Please click here to see these pieces.


Phantom Fluorite specimens from the
Dreamtime claim, Teller County, Colorado




Here we have an update of attractive phantom Fluorite specimens from the diggings at the Dreamtime claim in Teller County, Colorado.  This claim is in the middle of the famous Amazonite producing district near Lake George, and these pieces would make a great addition to any collection of Fluorites, pegmatite minerals or Colorado specimens. The pieces in this update were collected in September of 2008.  I am pleased to offer these specimens for the first time.  They represent some of the better cabinet and small cabinet sized specimens of this material that I have seen.  Please click here if you wish to view these pieces.


Champagne Petalite crystals from the Palelni mine, Burma




We have updated our site with 17 specimens of fairly new, interesting and unique champagne color Petalite crystals from the Palelni mine in Burma.  Typically Petalite occurs in colorless crystals, and are rarely well crystallized.  There are a few good to excellent representative crystals in this lot, along with several uniquely etched crystals.  Please click here if you wish to view these pieces.

Vivianite from Bolivia !!  

 

Vivianite Page

This update consists of several excellent quality Vivianite specimens from the exceptional find at the Tomokoni adit of the Cañutillos mine from 2004.  We have seen virtually no new specimens from this locality in recent years.  We held back a small parcel of specimens in the hopes that more would be found.  We are now making these specimens available as it appears that this locality may never produce these specimens again.  Please click here if you wish to view these pieces.
