Mimetite

During the 2003 Tucson Show the main novelty was, without doubt, the new Chinese Mimetites.
As you can see their quality is exceptional. We selected the more colorful orange ones, leaving from those we saw the more yellowish ones as they are too similar in our opinion of the former Thailand ones. Also we tried to get the more perfect specimens with the nicer and sharper forms.

Kermesite

This find represents the best samples ever found of this species. The size, perfect form as well as the cherry red color (when back lit) make them, in our opinion, one of the most significant finds of the last few years. We have selected solid specimens from our stock, so that shipping will not be a problem.

Please note that all this photos was taken with a strong light source at the rear of the specimen, in order to show its deep red color, under normal lighting this is not so visible.

Imayoshiite with Tobermorite (Group) and Andradite

Recorded under neon light
 

EEF77AN8: A novelty in the summer of 2021 and, in all likelihood, the best known for the species thus far. Imayoshiite occurs in numerous very sharp crystals, with a tabular shape and hexagonal outline, transparent, very lustrous and colorless, with small white fibrous coatings of Tobermorite (Group) and small Andradite crystals. An exceptional specimen, worthy of any Museum.
This specimen has been analyzed and we will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.
To learn more about this species and the rest of the paragenesis discovered so far at this mine, it is essential to read the article 'Rare Borate Minerals from the Shijiangshan-Shalonggou Deposits, Hexigten Banner, Inner Mongolia, China' whose authors are César Menor-Salván, Berthold Ottens and Ed Richard, featured in Rock & Minerals magazine, September/October 2021, volume 96, number 5.

TFR89AO6: New on the market in 2022. Different from the usual. Apart from the filiform growths, the main crystal stands out, extraordinarily elongated but thick and sharp and with a very distinct spinel-law twin. With Calcite crystals that differentiate it from the classic Hongda silvers.
These pieces come from a find made in a small gold working, currently closed, and of which until now there was no evidence that silver of such quality had been found there.

Babingtonite

Munich 2005 offered some samples from China that were offered as Manganbabingtonite. We had doubts about the composition so we did simple analysis and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results leave no doubts: they are really Babingtonite. They are exceptional in size, their association with Prehnite and Quartz and their agreeable esthetics.
Once more, China amazes us with something surpassing the best previously known for a species!

TC51AM0: Doubly terminated floater Calcite crystal with dominant elongated faces and a very flattened terminal rhombohedron. Translucent, lustrous and very rich in oriented inclusions. The back is complete and exhibits a curious recrystallized growth that makes the crystal appear to be hemihedral.
Lishui Prefecture, Zhejiang Province  China (2009)

Specimen size: 4.7 × 4.4 × 2.6 cm = 1.85” × 1.73” × 1.02”

TT51AE9: Floater aggregate of thick tabular Calcite crystals with clear and very bright prismatic faces and a greatly flattened terminal rhombohedron, transparent in the interior and whitish and translucent on their borders. We especially note the unusual crystalline morphology of the sample, but typical for this locality.
Lishui Prefecture, Zhejiang Province  China (2009)

Specimen size: 6 × 4.3 × 5.2 cm = 2.36” × 1.69” × 2.05”

Main crystal size: 4.9 × 4 cm = 1.93” × 1.57”

Minor fluorescence short UV

TA71AF1: Floater aggregate of crystals that have a thick tabular shape, with clear and very bright prismatic faces, with inclusions, and a greatly flattened terminal rhombohedron, transparent in the interior and whitish and translucent on their borders. We especially note the unusual morphology of the crystals and, typical for this locality, the curious “mossy” inclusions of, very probably, iron oxides.
Lishui Prefecture, Zhejiang Province  China (2009)

Specimen size: 8.6 × 3.4 × 3.8 cm = 3.39” × 1.34” × 1.50”

Main crystal size: 4.3 × 2.7 cm = 1.69” × 1.06”

Minor fluorescence short UV

TA90AM8: Lenticular Calcite crystal formed by a very thin prism and an extraordinarily flattened, translucent, lustrous white rhombohedron with concentric geometric zoning. Larger than the usual size for specimens from this locality.
Lishui Prefecture, Zhejiang Province  China (2009)

Specimen size: 10.2 × 6 × 3 cm = 4.02” × 2.36” × 1.18”
