RAI-001

RAI-001    Calcite on Quartz casts after Anhydrite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  These hematite coated quartz are actually a cast after an anhydrite crystal.  WOW!  Not only that, the calcites to come next are unusual in form and have these wild looking selective face coatings/ phantoms.  Together they create a fine visual display.  5.5 x 5 x 4.1 cm overall.  No damage to piece.  I’ll let the images describe the complexity of this assemblage.  Great piece.  200$

 

 

 

 

 

RAI-002

RAI-002    Calcite and Quartz Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  This small cabinet specimen is dominated by a large double terminated calcite measuring over 5 cm.  It is amazingly complex and outstanding example of what I believe are the most important calcites from any east coast locality to be found in decades.  Great satin to glassy luster (dependant on which face you scrutinize).  Selective hematite stains and phantoms.  Oh my!  The quartz are also great on this damage free specimen.  Fine views from all sides.  6 x 4.8 x 4 cm overall.  Sits well on its matrix base.  I'm thrilled to be offering this fine specimen.   375$

OKG-297     Babingtonite and Prehnite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  This amazing thumbnail sized piece is a single crystal of babingtonite measuring a whopping 3.3 x 2.3 x 1.7 cm.  That’s simply huge for a classic east coast babingtonite.  Minor prehnite.  Front view is super while the backside shows attachment to what was likely anhydrite or other prehnite masses.  This highly complex crystal is double terminated and stepped in its growth and twisted along its length.  Impressive.  It is the best babingtonite from this quarry of which I am aware and certainly an important piece.  1,750$

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-664

Back

OKI-664    Quartz on Calcite    Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  A nice display piece with a single large calcite scepter of approximately 3.3 cm surrounded by smaller calcites.  Mild selective face hematite coatings.  Minor rubs and backside damage but the piece displays very nicely from the front and sides.  7.5 x 6.2 x 4.8 cm overall.  These very complex calcites are highly desirable and not common.  A single pocket produced them and the majority were highly damaged.  This one is much better than most.  300$

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-667

OKI-667    Quartz Casts after Anhydrite in Quartz on Calcite    Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  A nice display piece which displays several gemmy casts of quartz after thin plates of anhydrite (to 2.6 cm each) sitting up in high relief on quartz and calcite.  The specimen is of a high luster, damage free and displays great.  Uncommon and likely the most important material to come from this find of the decade.  The casts after anhydrite will be the most noteworthy material when people look back at this unusual discovery.  5.8 x 4.5 x 3 cm overall.  Nice!  175$

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-522

OKI-522        Calcite on Quartz Stalactite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  Relatively large, to 2.2 cm, clear to slightly milky calcites sit on partial quartz stalactites.  The calcites are schalenohedral in form yet quite complex and intergrown.  2.7 x 2.2 x 2 cm overall.  High luster.  Displays great with zero damage.  40$

OKI-525

OKI-525        Datolite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  A nice gemmy example of what is considered the modern classic of material from this quarry.  This single crystal has one termination and shows moderate contact from other crystals along its edges, no of which are distracting or have the appearance of being damage.  They are, in fact, regrown surfaces.  Damage free and very display worthy.  Far better than most TN datolite specimen from here.  2.2 x 1.8 x 1.6 cm overall.  Great piece.  45$

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-526

OKI-526    Apophyllite and Chlorite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  The first generation of apophyllites on this pieces are clear and very basic rhombs.  The complex crystal capping the specimen measures 1.9 cm in diameter and is very lustrous, almost clear and double terminated.  The specimen is a damage free floater which measures 2 x 1.5 x 1.6 cm.  Minor green chlorite as inclusions.  35$

OKI-515

OKI- 515       Calcite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  3.2 x 2.3 x 2 cm floater crystal with dark reddish brown hematite overgrowths.  The overgrowths coat selective faces on this very complex crystal.  I don’t think it is a twin, simply an odd shaped thing.  Internally clear to slightly milky, no points of attachment, only some regrown faces and no damage.  A quality piece.  40$

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-516

OKI-516        Calcite, Quartz and Chalcopyrite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  Several double terminated calcite schalenohedrons to 1.8 cm each are clustered together on part of a quartz encrusted stalactite.  There is also a brassy yellow chalcopyrite crystal on one of the calcites.  Zero damage, good luster and excellent form.  2.5 x 2.4 x 1.8 cm overall.  Cute!  45$

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-517

OKI-517       Calcite and Hematite     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  A gorgeous 2 cm calcite sits on minor calcite coated matrix.  The specimen measures 2.2 x 2 x 1.8 overall and is noteworthy due to the unusual bands of hematite thickly coating selective regions on some of the faces.  Internally clear to slightly milky with bright rainbows indicative of a twinned crystal (which I see no further evidence of).  Minor crystal contact on backside.  Super views from all angles, high luster and a rare thing to have these odd, heavy metallic bands of hematite.  50$

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-519

OKI-519        Calcite, Prehnite and Quartz     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  The calcites are white and very translucent, showing prehnite balls on their surfaces and as inclusions.  They also exhibit odd selective surface hematite stains and phantoms which appear a light red in color.  The clear quartz points also show the hematite coloration but not the selective patterning like the calcites.  Very clean with only moderate edge contacts.  No damage.  Displays nicely.  3 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm overall.  Excellent example.  35$

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-520

OKI-520        Quartz     Roncari Quarry (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford County, Connecticut.  A relatively large, 2.3 cm, clear to slightly milky calcite sits up high off of a cluster of quartz points of similar color.  The calcite is very complex with a couple of dark hematite blobs on one face.  Entire TN specimen measures 3.4 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm and fills nicely a perky box.  No damage, only edge contacts.  30$

OKI-457    Chalcocite    Bristol Copper Mine, Bristol, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain Collection, prev. Dick Kelley and University of Rochester Collections.  This is certainly a classic east coast locality with no rivals for this rare species except those from Wisconsin.  Specimens from this locale are one of the true cornerstones of any respectable east coast site.  This twinned TN specimen measures 2.1 x 1.5 x 1.1 cm thick.  It is crystallized on all sides with only two small areas of edge contact (one on each each of piece).  This piece has a fantastic classic look due to its even, steel gray patina.  Sharply crystallized in all areas with the twinning being obvious. Some of the smaller crystals in this somewhat parallel growth aggregate are double terminated.  Great views from all sides.  More three dimensional than it may appear in the images.  Excellent provenance.  These things have become as rare as “hens teeth” and are mineralogically important (ref. Rocks and Minerals, 11: 37 and the Mineralogical Record, 32, 433).  An exceptionally fine, rare and desirable specimen for the discriminating thumbnail collector.  1,900$

OKI-192    Calcite on Chalcocite    Bristol Copper Mine, Bristol, Hartford Co., Connecticut.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain Collection, prev. Dick Kelley and University of Rochester Collections.  This is certainly a classic east coast locality with no rivals for this rare species except those from Wisconsin.  Specimens from this locale are one of the true cornerstones of any respectable east coast site.  This twinned TN specimen measures 2.2 x 2.2 x 1.2 cm overall.  It is crystallized on front, sides and a small portion of the back.  This piece has two small chips but is still an exceedingly rare example, especially given the presence of the calcite crystals.  Not only are the calcites in good shape they are very attractive, lustrous, transparent to translucent and add nice aesthetics to a species which seldom has much in the way of  this characteristic.  The chalcocite’s luster is a higher than is the norm for these specimens, again adding to its aesthetics.  Sharply crystallized in all areas. Excellent provenance.  These things have become as rare as “hens teeth” and are of mineralogical important (ref. Rocks and Minerals, 11: 37 and the Mineralogical Record, 32, 433).  An exceptionally fine, rare and desirable specimen for the discriminating thumbnail collector.  1,600$
