OKD-430    Green Apophyllite on Stilbite   Poona, India.  Here is an old classic which represents the very finest apophyllite to leave India.  This is an old specimen with about 25 points of the deepest, gemmy green apophyllite ever to be found protruding off of a light pink stilbite matrix.  One missing point is visible under magnification so itís not perfect, however unless you nose is right against it you will find it to be quite nice.  Highly aesthetic and displayable.  Apophyllite grouping is approx. 4.5 cm long by 2 cm wide.  Entire piece measures 7.5 x 7.5 x 6 cm.  It is getting very tough to find these now.  595$







OKJ-102    Zincite    Olkusz, Poland.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning Collection.  This is not a true mineral crystal, it is a zinc kiln smoke stack deposit mineralization.  These have been around for a long time but they are not often seen in crystals this well developed and when they are they tend to be very, very expensive.  This damage free crystal measures 6.3 cm long and is up to 1.1 cm wide.  Primary crystal is deep orange in color and transparent.  There are tiny secondary growth crystals and they are yellow.  Very nice and aesthetic.  $295









OKD-429     Apophyllite and Stilbite on Calcite   Jalgoan, India.  A neat specimen which has flashy clear apophyllites and pink stilbites on an elongated, somewhat tabular calcite.  11.5 x 4.5 x 3.5 cm.  One apophyllite near base, on back is cleaved otherwise perfect even to the tiniest crystal.  Showy.  $100







Nice phantoms

OKF-030    Fluorite      Denton Mine, Harden Co., Illinois.   What an impressive mineral specimen!  It is a piece I traded some great Canadian material many years ago.  It has remained in my collection and now is not something I collect any longer.  The primary cube measures an impressive 10.1 cm on edge.  It is gemmy with a rich yellow interior and a wonderful purple phantom.  Hoppered growth is attractive and interesting.  Displays well.  One corner cleave.  10.2 x 7.2 x 6.5 cm.  If you can live with the tiny corner being missing you can get this one at 1/3rd the price it would be at if totally damage free.  650$
