OKL-133

OKL-133     Diopside and Feldspar    A Vein, Natural Bridge, Lewis County, New York.  Ex. Michael Walter collection.  A 7.5 x 6.x x 3.6 cm.  Large diopside in the center and some feldspars are nice.  Crystals on edges show damage.  A very good example for this location.  Probably the nicest I could find in several visits involving some really serious work.  $80

 

 

 

 

 

OKL-580

OKL-580   Diopside with Ferroactinolite        Natural Bridge, Diana Township, Lewis County, New York.  Ex. Bob Trimingham collection. This is actually a really important mineral occurrence, and this a fine specimen for the location!  I have collected there often and never found anything close to this in quality.  It is composed of several crystals one of poor form but the other two sharp and well terminated (one double terminated).  The minor blue coatings are ferroactinolite.  6 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm. This is a historic specimen probably from the mid 1800s marked by Bob as having come with hand written note that this is an old specimen from the U.S.G.S..  Although it is not what I would call an aesthetic mineral specimen, I have viewed the best of this material and am well aware that this is an outstanding example and well-priced at  $250
