Tennantite with Quartz and Chalcopyrite

TC11Z6: Group, on a Chalcopyrite matrix, of complex Tennantite crystals with a tetrahedral shape and very rich with faces, very bright and partially coated by small Quartz crystals. The analysis of the crystals indicates that they are basically silvery Tennantite, but the presence of other silver minerals such as Miargyrite, Pyrargyrite or Freibergite has been detected. The sample is from a Mexican zone that is scarcely known in mineralogical circles, so we indicate the locality as approximate because we don’t know if all the samples are from a single mine, different mines, or from a wider mining area. We will send a copy of the analysis of the Tennantite to the buyer.

TJ14Z2: A novelty at Tucson 2014. These Opals (variety hyalite) appeared for first time during the Tucson Show and in addition to the fact that they are gemmy and quite aesthetic, standing up on their matrix, their main feature is that they fluoresce even in daylight! In fact, they fluoresce in almost all kinds of light, neon light, LED light, daylight and, of course,UV light. The only light with which they don't react is incandescent. As they are so new the locality is still very vague, sorry for that, but we are sure that time will clarify the locality as well as the reason why they fluoresce so strongly.

TQ96S7: Dodecahedral crystals of Andradite on matrix. They are very bright, completely transparent, have a deep, intense and uniform green color, and are on a matrix of white Pectolite. The sample is typical for this mine in Québec, that must not be confused with the classic Jeffrey Mine.

Specimen size: 3.2 × 3.4 × 0.9 cm = 1.3” × 1.3” × 0.4”

Smoky Quartz with Calcite

TF96X4: Group of crystals, one of them clearly dominant, with a very short prism, very well marked window growths on rhombohedron faces and a particularly intense glassy luster. Good samples from the Grant Quarry, aside from their scarcity, are specially appreciated by advanced collectors due to their high quality, and the neat inner forms of growth and dissolution.

MC51J7: The crystal habit is rare: they are apparently tabular but the fine vertical striation and the presence of the pinacoid show that they really are very flat prisms. Their color and luster are excellent. They are implanted on a group of prismatic crystals of greenish-yellow Vesuvianite with deep violet terminations.

MH90Y0: One of the scarce exceptional samples from the famous find of 2005 at the Jeffrey quarry, currently closed. The Diopside crystals have an uncommon shape, being apparently tabular, but with fine vertical striations and the presence of the pinacoid show they really are very flat prisms. Their color and luster are excellent and the transparency extraordinary. To all this we must add their association with prismatic greenish-yellow and violet Vesuvianite crystals.

EC36W8: Isolated and clustered crystals that show the dominant form of the dodecahedron beveled by the trapezohedron. They have an excellent transparency and luster and are a very deep green color that contrasts with the rocky matrix partially coated by a white, indeterminate amphibole. The species has been analyzed and we’ll send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.
