OKP-203

OKP-203   Hemimorphite     Gila County, Arizona.  Ex. John Davis Collection. The rosasite seen on this specimen is beautifully formed, light robins egg blue and on for much of the crystal's body, transparent!  The specimen measures 3.1 x 2.5 x 1.6 cm.  Excellent condition with only minor edge contacts and excellent locality piece.  $50

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-324

OKP-324     Wulfenite     Erupcion Mine, Los Lomentos, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les Collection.  The Mineralogical Record (vol. 34, no. 6, 2003) article on this region suggests this form may be from the lowest level of the Ahumada Mine.  It appears most were simply tagged as Erupcion, back in the day.         n any case, this fine damage free example has fine tabular crystals to well over a cm each that are transparent.  The piece measures 5.5 x 4.5 x 2.5 cm.  This is certainly a less common variety of crystal from this popular and prolific area.  The specimen comes with a custom engraved acrylic base, as seen in the images.  $450

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-321

OKP-321     Wulfenite and Mimetite     Silver Bill Mine, Costello Mine Group, Gleason, Cochise County, Arizona.  Ex. Caroline Les Collection.  This is a very fine example of this material.  It shows two generations of tabular wulfenites.  One generation is brown and the second, with the larger crystals, is transparent and yellow.  The mimetite is apple green.  So, obviously, there is lots of color in this piece.  There is also a fair amount of white, transparent to translucent, calcite scattered throughout.  The specimen is quite large for the location measuring 8.5 x 5.5 x 4.7 cm.  It views from all sides and is in excellent condition.  Exceptional specimen.  The specimen comes with a custom engraved acrylic base, as seen in the images.   $1,600

OKO-331

OKO-331    Pyrolusite pseudo after Manganite    Pinal County, Arizona.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  I believe this is from the Magma Mine, Pinal district in the Pinal Mountains.  Very unusual… I would describe it as pyrolusite and calcite on manganite (maybe an encrustation pseudo).  The manganite crystals dominate and are very fine examples with bright metallic lusters and wonderful form.  It is a domical piece measuring 1.5 x 1.3 x 1 cm.  It is damage free and fully formed, even on the extreme edges.  Mounted in a perky box.  $100

OKM-172

Back view

Bottom

OKM-172    Calcite     Copper Queen Mine, Bisbee, Arizona.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  A large domical cluster of crystals on a cast after??  I've checked it all out with 10x and it appears damage free (somewhat of a miracle given how fragile the blades look).  Not as fragile as it looks as I have transported it hundreds of miles and handled it numerous times never having any issues.  Displays well from any side.  One side shows another species as a brown overgrowth.  That side isn't as aesthetic.  Attractive green color and good luster.  13 x 10.7 x 7.9 cm.  At one time there were quite a few of these available on the market.  Seldom were they this nice.  How many have survive intact?  This one is the nicest I have seen.  $1,800

Back

OKL-933     Vanadinite     J.C. Holmes Mine, Santa Rita Mountains, Temporal Gulch Area, Wrighton District, Patagonia, Santa Cruz County, Arizona.  5.9 x 4.3 x 3.5 cm.  I believe this is new material... well formed crystals with a satin luster, in good coverage on an almost damage free specimen.  Two tiny crystals show damage or contact but are not distracting.  It displays great.  Only one small edge with matrix contact otherwise a floater!  Super example.  $55

OKK-701    Wulfenite and Calcite     Silver Bill Mine, Costello Mine Group, Dragoon Mts., Gleason, Cochise County, Arizona.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning Collection.  We just don't see this material any longer which is a real shame.  Although this location received little acclaim the material occasionally was quite nice.  This specimen is the finest I have seen with beautiful transparent to translucent, yellow tabs of wulfenite accented with clear calcites (some with nice red hematite phantoms).  It measures a respectable 6.3 x 3.2 x 3 cm with crystals to 1 cm on edge.  There is only minor chipping to a couple crystals so the overall condition is excellent.  This specimen is a real looker far superior to an comparable piece I have seen in many years.  $2,000
