OKL-570

OKL-570      Stilbite Stalactites with Quartz coatings      Poona, India.  I seldom purchase these any longer with Indian zeolite minerals being so common on today's market.  This one however really got my attention!  It is composed of nine beautifully formed stalactites with large blades of stilbite, to 2.5 cm each, coating all their surfaces.  The specimen is a floater having all its contacts on base healed.  It measures a large 14.4 x 10 x 8 cm.  The really attractive quality this specimen has is its high luster (which is not evident in the photos).  Way to high for stilbite.  Once I got it home I noticed why this was so.  There is a microscopic coating of quartz druse on most of the specimen's surfaces.  This specimen far exceeds the normal aesthetics associated with this species.  There is no damage what so ever and it sits well viewing equally well from any side.  Impressive!  $395

Close up

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 it’s 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$

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKN-200

OKN-200       Heulandite-Ce with Celadonite inclusions       Nashik District, Maharashtra, India.  The heulandites seen here represent what I believe may be some of the finest found to date from anywhere.  Why?!  Well, it is not just their impressive size, rich color or fabulous luster.  The form seen here is uncommon and most of the pieces are floaters with no damage, what-so-ever.  To begin with these specimens were discovered in 2015 as a single pocket.  I checked all the Tucson dealers and no one else had any or was aware of anyone who did.  The dealer who did have these specimens knew they were of exceptional quality for the species and was very stubborn with his pricing.  It took two days and three visits to finally negotiate a deal on a dozen pieces I high-graded form his total lot of perhaps 35 specimens.  I certainly grabbed up what I deemed the finest of the lot.  I've occasionally seen large green specimens like these in the past but they have always been uncommon in this size and color.  The problem with past finds has been their lack of luster.  The crystals had flat, graining surfaces (similar to the poorest areas on these crystals) and seldom had the same deep forest green color.  These new examples have exceptional luster for the species, very large crystal size, a rare crystal shape, and in most cases no points of contact to matrix.  In hand they look like flowers with gentle curves that reflect the light as they are turned.  They are impressive and the best of them are simply the "best of the best" when it comes to heulandites. 

This one, I believe, is one of the two finest of the discovery.  It measures 7.4 x 5.4 x 4.7 cm overall. Individual crystals are to over 5 cm and they grad from the deep forest green color to clear at their tips.  A tiny, shallow contact from another crystal exists on one of the clear areas, otherwise a damage free floater.  The contact is facing you in the top right region of the last photo and is still difficult to make out.  A great heulandite specimen in all regards.  $400

This one, I believe, is the finest of the discovery.  It measures 6.6 x 5 x 4.5 cm overall. It appears to be one crystal that grades from the deep forest green color to clear at its tips.  It is a damage free floater.  Impressive.  $550

OKD-426

OKD-426    Calcite and Chalcedony      Nasik, India.  I came upon this unusual piece approximately ten years ago and stocked it away for a rainy day.  I have yet to see another like this.  I've observed my share of calcite scepters, but none of this quality on chalcedony stalactites.  Put these interesting forms together in a matrix vug and it becomes a wonderfully unusual specimen for the collector who thinks they have seen everything unique from India.  This fine specimen measures 14 x 12 x 6 cm overall and is totally damage free.  The scepters are clear to white with selective face coatings of a sugary quartz or secondary calcite overgrowth, their stems are darker than the caps.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.   I am able to offer this fine piece for only....$950

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-214...looking at vertical twin plane

Smaller twins at bottom left.

Good view of twin plane

OKI-214     Gyrolite on and in Calcite Twins     Poona, India.  An impressive specimen when one takes a moment to consider all that is here.  The primary crystal is attached to several smaller twins and has a minor region of contact on backside from where it looks to have been attached against some gyrolite or okenite.  The specimen displays like a floater and is certainly an impressive twin.  It measures 7.4 x 5.2 x 4 cm and is clear with minor inclusions including well formed balls of gyrolite.  Some gyrolites also appear on the surface of the crystals.  Only one minor rub which will need to be searched out with magnification in order to find it.  Displays great from all sides.  One of the nicest calcite twins I’ve ever had in stock.  Outstanding Indian calcite!  245$

OKI-114     Stilbite and Heulandite    Undisclosed “Well Excavation” in India, 2003.  I was lucky enough to get these fine specimens from a new dealer at Tucson as he unpacked his wares to sell.  I high graded out the very best specimens he had for sale in manageable sizes.  Some of the plates were 2 to 3 feet across.  No damage to any of these fine, displayable specimens.  Their color is richer than most stilbite specimens found coming from India these days and more reminiscent of stellerite.  The stilbites are translucent and the heulandites when present are nearly clear.  All of these specimens are priced well below what they normally would be due to the fair price I purchased them at.  A great small specimen with a large, well exposed heulandite measuring 3.5 cm and attractive stilbites to 3.8 cm.  Overall size is 10.5 x 7 x 5 cm and the specimen stands on edge for better display.  A fine specimen for only 40$!!!

OKF-704

OKF-704     Gyrolite and Okenite on paramorphs of White Prehinte after Laumontite    Padanvadi Quarry, Bombay, India.  This is a very rare combination to have with the white prehnite (vs. green).  The specimen is a branching network of molds which are coated by balls of gyrolite to .8 cm each.  The piece measures 6 x 5 x 3.5 cm and has only a tiny contact on its bottom.  The sprays of okenite are small and mostly on the bottom.  This specimen gives outstanding views from every side.  Zero damage and high aesthetics. Perfect for the zeoloite collector who thinks they have seen it all. 85$
