OKJ-627

OKJ-627    Galena    Joplin Distric, Missouri.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  Prev. W.F. Ingram collection; Smithsonian.  Sold by Ward’s of Rochester.  This specimen is obviously most important for its provenance.  How old it is needs to be researched but I will leave that up to its new owner.  The old collection # being written right on a dominant crystal face is a flash into the past.  As a specimen it is exceptional for the time period in which it is from and has survived totally free of damage.  It has great views from every side with only minor base attachment and the patina one would expect to find on a historic piece of this nature.  I don’t believe this one will be here for long.  $100

Nice!!

Custom engraved acrylic base.

OKF-373    Pyrite Bar    St. Joe Lead District, Missouri.    Ex Anthony P. Dunn collection.  Now here is a really serious specimen for the collector of classic American minerals.  This specimen measures 13.5 cm in length it is 6.7 cm wide and its base.  It averages approximately 4 cm in thickness and is fully terminated on all sides including its base.  There is a single minor white dolomite crystal which is the only accessory mineral present.  The bar is very stable standing on end for display and is slightly curved in form.  I can't say enough about this piece’s rarity and aesthetics.  It is one of those amazing pieces which is seldom seen in the mineral market especially in large damage free pieces like this.  There is another collection number on the base of the piece but my guess is that this specimen was mined in the mid-1970s.  They don't get much better than this so I suspect this one should go fast even though it's an expensive piece of pyrite.   Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.   $1600
