We carry a diversity of Mexican mineral specimens both from purchased collections and from more modern finds.  On the following pages you will encounter crystals from many locations and in many species.  Most are quite aesthetic and normally very reasonable in price however, high quality, damage free specimens of unusual or highly aesthetic species from Mexico have always commanded top dollar.

OKM-103

OKM-103      Fluorite with Calcite    Naica, Mexico.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  A large example of this popular, well known, desirable material.  It measures 10 x 8.8 x 4.2 cm overall with both cubes and highly modified "Aztec pyramid" style crystals.  In fact, much of the crystal is actually the side of one very large pyramid style crystal.  No damage to body of piece.  Fantastic clarity is not very evident in the images but the interior would be described as gem throughout  A couple tiny chips right on edges as would be expected... really clean, even the edges are much better than would be expected.  Tetrahexahedral? modifications to many corners on crystals.  This is an exceptional piece for the location.  The calcites are small white bladed crystals found on one side/edge of the piece.  Very nice.  $650
