OKP-857      Martite     Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.  Ex.

Base of quartz

OKP-858       Albite and Pyrite on Microcline and Quartz     Valentine Mine, Gouverneur Talc Company Mine #4, Harrisville, Lewis County, New York.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This single smoky quartz point is completely covered by these uniquely formed feldspars.  Several of the white albites are damaged but most are in excellent shape.  Base contact as seen in the forth image.  5.5 x 2.7 x 2.5 cm.  This was rare material at the one time occurrence and well documented in a Rocks and Minerals article.  $45







OKP-859      Stibnite on Quartz      Xikuangshan Antimony Mine, Hunan Province, China.  Ex. John Davis collection.  These upside-down sprays of acicular stibnite have formed on a shard of gray stone which is coated by a clear druse of quartz.  The piece is a floater that is in excellent shape and appears to have no breakage, missing crystal groups, etc.  It measures 7.5 x 5.3 x 4 cm.  $50







OKP-860     Psilomelane      Deming, New Mexico.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This stocky section of botryoidal material measures 6 x 3.5 x 2.9 cm.  No damage.  $40







OKP-861      Calcite     Partridge Island, Nova Scotia, Canada.  Ex. John Davis collection.  The crystals composing this piece are mostly transparent, clear to yellow/tan in color, and simple rhombohedral crystals to over 2 cm on edge each.  The cluster shows some smaller crystals faces with tan coatings and only one small chip on one of the smallest crystals.  5.5 x 5 x 3.5 cm.  A very nice example of this material.  $35







Back or bottom

OKP-863     Axinite and Actinolite     Colebrook Hill Mine, Colebrook Hill, Rosebery District, Tasmania, Australia.  Ex. John Davis collection.  The axinite crystals across the top of the piece are complete, a deep purple color, and transparent.  The sprays of actinolite dominate the specimen and are crude fiberous groupings of a light green color.  The piece measures 4.5 x 3.2 x 2 cm.  Edge breakage.  $55







OKP-864    Calcite     York Stone Quarry, York, PA.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This is a well documented find (a single huge pocket) that produced these readily recognized orange/yellow calcites.  All the major crystals in this grouping show twinning.  Nice translucence to transparency.  6.3 x 5.3 x 4.4 cm.  There is strong base and edge contact with the primary crystals standing up high and being damage-free.  $35







OKP-865      Aragonite       Molina de Aragon, Guadalajara, Spain.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This is a pair of interpenetrating crystals that measure 4 x 3.7 x 3 cm.  Transparent clear regions but the majority of the crystal's bodies are reddish-brown.  No damage.  $25

OKP-866     Galena and Pyrite      Buick Mine, Bixby, Iron County, Missouri.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This exceptional miniature measures 4.8 x 3.5 x 3.2 cm and is dominated by a cube (modified by octahedral form) that measures 2.3 cm on edge.  Two very tiny chips on one edge of the big cube. Nice from any direction.  $80







KP-867     Calcite on Prehnite     Sillman Quarry, Southbury, Connecticut.  Ex. John Davis collection.  This open vein shows translucent calcite rhombs n nice light green prehnite.  The piece measures 7.9 x 6.8 x 2.5 cm.  No damage.   $35
