Wyoming Mineral Specimens




OKN-804      Quartz on Chaladony (variety Youngite)    Guernsey, Hartville District, Wyoming.  Ex. Harold Dibble collection.  From the early 1980s, this piece would have been a fantastic example for the find.  Light purple in color, having a high luster, very three-dimensional, and damage free are all pluses for the piece.  The specimen sits nicely on edge and views from any direction nicely.  The piece has a couple very minor edge contacts as its only connection to surrounding rock.  8 x 7 x 4.5 cm overall.  Far better in hand, especially what I would call the front view (seen in the first and last image).  Very strong yellow green SW UV fluorescence.    $200






OKL-015    Dolomite pseudo. after Aragonite    Lovell, Big Horn County, Wyoming.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  This specimen  measures 2.6 x 2.6 x .3 cm.  It is a flat white color and similar in appearance on its backside although has more staining.  It appears to be a floater but it is mounted in a perky box and I do not intend to remove it for further inspection.  From my understanding these are quite rare and this is the only one I've seen for sale.  Mounted in a perky box.  $195






OKF-613    Marcasite    Skull Point Mine, Kemmer, Wyoming.  Big marcasite crystals on a small cracked concretion.  Floater with no damage.  9.4 x 5 x 3.5 cm.  Attractive example with nice luster and form.  120$





OKA-428 Barite/ Calcite   Batešs Hole, Shirley Basin, Wyoming. This 10 x 7 cm plate was collected in 1983. Light blue and clear, well formed barites on one surface of piece. Also, minor white calcite. Barites average .75 to 1 cm each. 60$
