July 2018 Update

 

 

OKP-801

OKP-801     Rosasite and Hemimorphite     Hidden Treasure Mine, Toole County, Utah.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This interesting piece measures 6 x 4.2 x 2.4 cm.  It is a floater with every surface coated by small sharp crystals of both species.  No damage and no contacts.  Interesting locality.  $120

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-802

OKP-802     Calcite on Celestine      Dundas Quarry (LaFarge Quarry), Dundas, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This large specimen measures 8 x 5.2 x 2.3 cm and is obviusly repaired.  This line appears to be a weak, hollowed out area.  The back has a strong contact.  The calcites line the right side of the first image, are small and dirty looking due to coatings by druse dolomite.  $60

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-803

OKP-803       Grossular, Hematite and Pectolite?       Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Québec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  These clear garnets have always been rare and this specimen is exceptional.  The grossulars are water clear gems and cover much of the piece, yet show great separation allowing for nice definition when you look at the crystals.  So often they are grown together and do not provide the desired aesthetics seen in this one.  The piece measures 6.4 x4.6 x 2.1 cm overall.  There are are matrix contacts on the front display face along its top edge (as seen in the second image).  It should be displayed as seen in the first image that puts this contact area (which isn't distracting anyway) along the bottom.  There is no damage to this wonderful piece and some crystallization on the back, as well.  Little black balls of hematite create nice contrasts with the pinkish pectolite? (I think) and the clear garnets.  A very fine mineral specimen!  $600

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-804

Back

OKP-804      Petarsite     De-Mix Quarry, Mt. St-Hilaire, Québec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This example of an uncommon species measures 7 x 4.1 xx 3.4 cm and sits nicely as shown in the first image.  Most of the crystals along the top are nicely terminated while those in the very front were in contact with rock and are, obviously, not.   $50

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-805

OKP-805       Wollastonite       Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Québec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This piece measures 7 x 5 x 3.3 cm and shows white, massive wollastonite in green and purple vesuvianite (small crystals in some openings.  This is more a systematic piece than a collector-grade mineral specimen.  $20

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-806

OKP-806     Calcite, Barite, Quartz     Tomlinson Quarry, Kenmore Corners, Russell, Ontario, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This larger bladed calcite has tiny clear barites and clear quartz crystals on all its sides except for the base.  The piece measures 4.4 x 4.4 x 2.5 cm.  No damage, some hematite coatings, and nice views from any direction.  $45

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-807

OKP-807     Sulfur    Steamboat Springs Mine, Washoe County, Nevada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  Numerous small, transparent crystals on this 7 x 4 x 2.5 cm specimen.  Several are missing but those present show very complex crystal form.  Almost spherical in overall appearance.  $45

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-724

OKP-724     Pyrite     Huanzala, Peru.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This small cluster is composed of several partial crystals, as seen.  It measures 4 x 2.8 x 1.7 cm.  Minor chipping.  $30

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-725

OKP-725     Pyrite     Huanzala, Peru.  Ex. John Davis collection.  Larger octahedrons (up to 3.4 cm on edge) compose this specimen.  It displays nicely and measures 5.4 x 4.5 x 3.2 cm.  Some chipping.  $50

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-726

OKP-726     Pyrite     Huanzala, Peru.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This one measures 3.5 x 3.2 x 2.2 cm is damage free and composed of unusually shaped crystals.  $30

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-728

 

 

 

OKP-728      Pyrite     Huanzala, Peru.  Ex. John Davis collection.  A more typical cluster is seen here that measures 5.1 x 4 x 2.7 cm and sits nicely for display as seen in the first image.  Edge contacts and some broken crystals along right side.  Very nice condition overall.  $25

 

 

 

 

 

OKN-730

OKN-730     Gypsum    Naica, Mun, de Sauucillo, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Harold Dibble collection.  This single crystal is better than the images indicate.  It measures 10.2 x 4 x 3 cm has some contacts from other crystals but is in excellent condition, overall.  Water clear and has an excellent luster.  $40

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-808

OKP-808     Quartz     Grant Quarry, Greely, Ottawa-Carleton County, Ontario, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This skeletal crystal measures 5.3 x 4.5 x 4.2 cm and is slightly smoky in color.  Chipping along bottom edges in a couple spots and at termination on one side.  Many good views of interesting crystallography.  $45

 

 

 

 

OKP-809

OKP-809     Grossular.  Minots Ledge, Oxford County, Maine.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  Circ. 1955.  Several red, intergrown garnets compose this specimen.  It measures 4.8 x 3 x 3 cm and is from an unusual location.  Lots of contacts but the crystal views shown are in excellent condition.  $50
