OKP-718       Smithsonite        79 Mine, Pinal County, Arizona.  This color and quality of smithsonite is unusual for the location.  The specimen measures is photoed in a perky box but is now removed.  It is damage free, brightly colored, high in luster and nicely 3 dimensional.  The coatings are also on the backside but not on the base.  The edge of one plate shows contact as seen in the first image however no surfaces, including those not seen in the images, show any damage at all.  The quality is exceptional.  The piece measures 7.5 x 5 x 3.7 cm.  $350







OKP-567       Fluorite     Oatman, Mohave County, Arizona.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This 2.7 x 2.2 x 1.1 cm piece has a wonderful, transparent, green octahedron centrally placed.  It is modified by tiny cube forms on all its surfaces masking its transparency.  No damage.  $50

OKP-695      Azurite and Malachite on Turquoise       Morenci Mine, Copper Mountain District, Shannon Mountains, Greenlee County, Arizona.  This fantastic combination piece measures 6 x 5 x 3.2 cm.  The azurite is deep blue as expected and shows a couple with partial pseudomorphing to malachite.  The crystals are well formed and aesthetically displayed at the top of the piece.  There is minor contact to the azurite cluster on the backside, as seen in the second image, otherwise the specimen is a damage-free floater.  Not a common thing in the mineral world!  $450






OKP-558     Sphalerite      Iron Cap Mine, Landsman Camp, Aravaipa District, Graham County, Arizona.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  An interesting location goes with this attractive, slightly translucent, single crystal of sphalerite.  It measures 2.5 x 2.2 x 1.2 cm.  It has complex surfaces, as can be seen in the photos.  Base contact and minor edge contact.  No damage.  $60








OKP-385     Wulfenite on Fluorite    Silver Thread Mine, Tombstone, Cochise County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  This is one of those really unusual mineral specimens... a very uncommon species combination, great, historic location, crystallization front and back, and wonderful condition.  The piece measures 7.1 x 5.5 x 2 cm.  There is no damage that I can find on either side.  There is a very tiny amount of mineral tack on back.  This is a really nice Arizona specimen.  $550








OKP-387     Wulfenite     Melissa (Geronimo) Mine, La Paz County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  This 6 x 3.9 x 2.4 cm piece is studded with brightly colored, high luster crystals on a plate of quartz.  The crystals speak for themselves.  The back is crystallized by an unknown species which is in radiating balls of clear/ white crystals.  They look like gypsum but I am unsure.  The piece sits on the only contact nicely and views well from every side.  Minor mineral tac on back of specimen.  With magnification I can find one crystal that shows chipping on one edge.  Outstanding condition.  $350







OKP-388     Wulfenite and Dioptase    Mammoth-St. Anthony's Mine, Tiger, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  The piece measures 5 x 4.8 x 3 cm.  There is lots of damage which is the norm for the locality.  Sits on edge for display.  There are also a couple of other species present that I am unable to identify.  $100







OKP-390    Wulfenite?!     Duval Mine, Mineral Park, Mohave County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  I'm at a loss on this one... are the wulfenites the acicular white crystals or the metallic crystals that almost look like anatase?!  9.2 x 6 x 3 cm.  The tags say it was found in 1980 and x-ray confirmed as wulfenite by Bill Panzner.  It is more a reference piece to me but some Arizona collector or wulfenite specialist will cherish this one.  $125









OKP-380     Wulfenite     Glove Mine, Santa Cruz County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  Very large, transparent yellow crystals compose this 4.3 x 1.6 x 1.6 cm grouping.  The backsides are coated by a brown material making them look translucent instead of transparent.  Minor edge chipping on a couple of crystals but overall in very good condition.  These crystals are very thin and fragile.  A very nice example and unusual for the large crystal size.  $220







OKP-382      Wulfenite and Mimetite    Glove Mine, Santa Cruz County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  This vug contains an attractive assemblage of crystals.  The piece measures 6.7 x 6 x 5 cm.  Several crystals near the mouth of the opening are damaged, as seen.  $170







OKP-377     Wulfenite    Dog Water Mine, Arivapa, Graham County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  I've never even heard of this mine... however, the piece is similar to the material from Tombstone, Arizona.  This specimen measures 5.2 x 3.4 x 1.6 cm.  The crystals are glassy and TOTALLY transparent.  Crystals coat every side to some degree and I can find no damage.  This is a floater that loks fantastic but I have nothing else to compare to when coming up with a price.  I think it is really attractive, unique and outstanding in quality.  I do not think any wulfenite collector would be disappointed with this one!  $500






OKO-494      Malachite    Grandview Mine, Coconino County, Arizona.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning.  Nice coatings of primary malachite crystals on front, top and back f this 3.6 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm piece of limonite matrix.  Damage-free.  Mounted in a perky box.  $30

Carolyn Les collection.  This fine example from Tiger measures 4.5 x 4.2 x 3 cm.  The crystals are large (the big partial crystal is 4 cm on edge).  The frontal view is free of damage.  A substantial piece for this location.  $500







OKP-400    Cuprite on Copper     Bisbee, Arizona.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This specimen shows tiny gray to red/gray crystals of cuprite totally coating a branching copper specimen.  It measures 5.6 x 3.4 x 2.6 cm.  No damage.  Classic locality.  Some Styrofoam on base to remove.  $80

OKO-566    Wulfenite     Red Cloud Mine, Yuma County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  This 3.7 x 2.1 x 1.7 cm piece has two large tabs reminiscing of days gone by.  It is an older piece, likely from Ed Over's work.  The crystals are robust, to 2 cm each on edge, translucent to transparent and of fantastic color.  One crystal has a strong edge contact as seen in the images, otherwise in nice condition.  $400






OKO-569    Wulfenite and Calcite?     Finch Mine, Pinal County, Arizona.  Ex.

Carolyn Les collection.  This specimen is composed of transparent, tabular, yellow wulfenites to 1.5 cm on edge.  They show coatings, usually on one side each, of white calcite.  Some crystals along rdges are gone but the crystals in the body of the specimen are in fine condition as seen.  7.7 x 6 x 3.7 cm overall.  $185







OKO-556     Psilomelane (var. Romanechite)     Tiger, Pinal County, Arizona.  Ex.

OKP-344    Wulfenite     Tombstone District, Cochise County, Arizona.  Ex. Carolyn Les collection.  Here is another desirable wulfenite from an important U.S. location.  This one measures 5.6 x 4.5 x 3 cm and stands vertically.  The largest crystals are under the base so it can also be displayed on its side if desired.  The specimen has lots of flash, not showing well in the images, due to the exceptional luster of the crystals.  Views nicely from any direction as it is crystallized on every side.  The specimen comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  $450







OKP-343    Wulfenite, Hemimorphite, Auricalcite     79 Mine, Wickenburg, Gila County, Arizona.  Ex.

OKP-324     Wulfenite     Erupcion Mine, Los Lomentos, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Carolyn 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
