Azurite on Malachite

September 9th - Scott Werschky of Miner's Lunchbox obtained some exceptional new specimens of Azurite and Malachite from the Sepon mine in Laos.  These are destined to become classics for azurite as the crystals are sharp and brilliantly lustrous. They are reminiscent of material from Bisbee. Scott will have some extraordinary specimens at the Denver Show.  I picked up these more affordable specimens ahead of the show from Scott but they are no less impressive than the best pieces in terms of crystal quality.

 

 
Gold from California
Gold from Nevada
September 9th - I picked up some gold specimens that needed trimming and prepping. All except one are from the Eagle's Nest mine in California. The other is from the Round Mountain mine in Nevada. 

 

 
Rosasite ps Azurite
Dioptase on Calcite
September 28th - Denver 2015 was one of the best opportunities I had to find some very nice Tsumeb material. Good specimens keep going up from this venerable locality but at least they are they to be found from time to time. 

 

 
Gold from Australia
Silver from Morocco
Gold from Hope's Nose
September 28th - Here's a large group of native elements such as gold, silver, lead and bismuth. 

 

 
Scorodite from Brazil!
Ettringite from South Africa
fluorite from Pakistan
September 28th - Mixed Denver 2015 Show specimens.  Lots of diversity with this group classics and rarities.

 

 
Azurite from Laos
 
September 28th - While in Denver I found two specimens with Scott that were not in the high 4 or 5 digit range of the new azurite specimens from Laos.  I bought the two and trimmed a total of 5 specimens from them.  From what I have heard this is probably it for this find.  But, when it comes to Asia, anything is possible it seems.

 

 
Scorodite from Brazil!
Ettringite from South Africa
Ettringite from South Africa
September 28th - Spirifer minerals is probably one of your best sources for minerals from Morocco.  I found a super roselite, a few apatites and picked through the remaining native coppers from the new find made this past spring.  Good stuff! 

 

 
Azurite
Volborthite
September 28th - Marshall Sussman had a nice array of specimens from the Milpillas mine in Sonora, Mexico.  Azurites and nice examples of  the new find of volborthite - the largest crystals of this mineral ever found! 

 

 
Emerald from Colombia
Jonas Mine Elbaite
September 28th - Here's a group of minerals that are used for gemstones - beryls, benitoite, garnets and more!

 

 
Chalcopyrite on Chalcocite
September 28th - These unusual specimen first showed up at the 2013 Munich Show.  Matrix specimens are exceedingly rare from this locality as most specimens were simply plucked from the mine walls.

 

 
Azurite from Laos
September 28th - Dennis Beals of XTAL had a new find of amethyst from Las Vigas. 

 

 
Graphite from New York
September 28th - Spirifer also picked up a small hoard of graphite crystals exposed from encasing calcite. The specimens come from near Ticonderoga, New York.

Minerals from the Brett Keller Collection & 2015 Denver Show -Brett Keller, as you may know, is the vintner for Mineral Wines.  Last year he won the Best of Show award at the 2014 Main Tucson Show for his display of small miniatures.  He has exceptional taste and all of his specimens have been carefully selected over a period of years.  I was pleased to get a small selection of specimens he is releasing to make room for his growing collection.  I spoke with Brett and he's agreed to reduce the price 20% on the remaining specimens from the selection. 

 

Amethyst - Georgia

Legrandite - Mexico

Cu Smithsonite - Tsumeb

Rhodochrosite - South Africa
