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.   

 

OKK-195

OKK-195    Fluorite, Pyrite, Calcite     Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Very attractive plate measuring 4.5 x 4.1 x 1.7 cm with crystals to 1.7 cm on edge.  Fine octahedrons in the classic "Aztec Pyramid" form.  The crystals are nearly transparent and on what appears to be a black sulfide or garnet.  On the fluorites are small white calcites and bright pyrites.  A very attractive mix in deed.  Zero damage.  $125

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-196

OKK-196    Sphalerite, Fluorite, and Pyrite   Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico.  A large 3 plus cm TWIN crystal central to a 4.5 x 3.1 x 3.5 cm cluster of mixed minerals.  No damage, nice luster and form... a good specimen, all around.  $50

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-197

OKK-197    Fluorite, Calcite, Galena, Pyrite     Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico.  A fine mix including gemmy fluorites to over 2 cm on galena and quartz matrix.  Pyrite balls on surfaces of crystals and inside fluorites as inclusions.  5.3 x 3.2 x 2.4 cm overall.  No damage.  Excellent mixed mineral specimen.  $50

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-164

OKK-164     Hemimorphite    Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  Attractive sprays of crystals of high luster and good form.  I don't usually buy these but this one is really nice for its size.  8 x 6.5 x 5 cm overall.  Sawn base.  $30

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-156

OKK-156    Creedite     Abasolo Mine, Navidad, Durango, Mexico.  Two intergrow balls of crystals that show no damage.  Perhaps with lengthy scrutiny you could find a missing crystal(s) but it looks very clean to me.  8 x 5.5 x 5.2 cm overall.  These are beginning to become scarce.  This example has excellent luster and is as good as you can expect ones of this size to be.  $60

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-569

Smithsonite close up.

OKK-569     Smithsonite on Adamite      Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  Ex. Jim Turek collection.  Tan to clear colored schalenohedral smithsonite crystals cover much of this piece which was first coated by a druse of light green adamite.  It is a large specimen with mineralization on all sides except where there were minor contacts.  9 x 6.5 x 6.5 cm overall.  Nice luster and excellent form to the crystals which are up to 1 cm each with most being smaller.  A fine example.  $85

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-887

OKK-887     Adamite      Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  A fine example measuring 3.2 x 2.9 x 1.2 cm.  The hemisphere of crystals is complete, damage free and attractive.  It measures 2.2 cm across.  A couple of the edge crystals in the aggregate are white....this is not damage.  It rests in fantastic contrast on a dark brown gossen (limonite or goethite).  An exceptional display piece at a very good price.  $125 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-888

OKK-888     Adamite      Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  A fine example measuring 3.2 x 2.5 x 1.5 cm.  Damage free and attractive.  Large gemmy crystals compose this aggregate.  Excellent color and nicely mounted in a perky box.  $50

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-889

OKK-889     Adamite      Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  A fine example measuring 3 x 3 x 2.7 cm.  Damage free floater composed of bow ties and half aggregates (wheat sheath forms) in a clump of great aesthetic value.  Lemon green color, high translucence.  This unusual piece would be a fine addition to any TN collection.  $80 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKK-761

OKK-761      Fluorite     Muzquiz, Coahuila, Mexico.  This 7.7 x 6 x 2.3 cm specimen is a plate of crystals of rich purple color and nice form (mostly cubes and a few cubes modified by octahedrons).  Edge contacts in a couple places and no damage.  Very attractive piece for this common contemporary material.  $40
