VB56G8: Group of bright cubic crystals with a very clear zonation marked by Pyrite inclusions.
The piece is from the Jordi Fabre collection and we will give the handwriten label with the sample.
Moscona Mine, El Llano, Solís, Corvera de Asturias, Comarca Avilés, Asturias, Principality of Asturias  Spain (03/1993)

Specimen size: 10.7 × 6.9 × 3.4 cm = 4.21” × 2.72” × 1.34”

Main crystal size: 1.8 × 1.6 cm = 0.71” × 0.63”

Fluorite extremely fluorescent long & short UV

Pyromorphite  

AH52M4: Group of very sharp Pyromorphite crystals, some of them doubly terminated, with slight curvatures on the edges and a very visible color change between prism faces, green with brownish tones, and a yellow color on the terminal ones. The specimen was formerly in the Jordi Fabre collection (Nr. F649) and we will send the label to the buyer.
Des Farges Mine (Les Farges Mine), 150m.↓, Ussel, Corrèze, Nouvelle-Aquitaine  France (1974)

Specimen size: 8.6 × 8.1 × 3.7 cm = 3.39” × 3.19” × 1.46”

LM51AK2: Splendid, very balanced group of sharp crystals of cubic habit with fine polycrystalline growths on the surface of their faces, transparent and of variable color, intense yellow in the central part and light lilac, almost colorless, on some of the edges. The specimen is of extraordinary quality compared to the majority of Fluorites from this mine, which is more famous for its pyromorphites. A French classic that comes from the Jordi Fabre collection (No. 2123), whose label we will send to the buyer.
Chaillac Mine, Rossignol vein, Chaillac, Le Blanc, Indre, Centre-Val de Loire  France (1995)

Specimen size: 13.2 × 8.4 × 4.8 cm = 5.20” × 3.31” × 1.89”

Main crystal size: 4 × 2.5 cm = 1.57” × 0.98”

Fluorescent long UV & minor fluorescence short UV

Allargentum with Byssolite
 

FB89AL5: Very dominant elongated crystals of Allargentum, with intergrowths of Silver and Dyscrasite, on a Calcite matrix with centered growths of acicular crystals of Actinolite (byssolite variety). The Allargentum appears to be clearly the majority in the analysis for this specimen, evidence that it is not a pseudomorph but rather Allargentum crystals intergrown with Dyscrasite and Silver.
It comes from the Jordi Fabre collection. We will send the buyer a copy of the analysis and the original collection label (No. F1764)
Bouismas Mine, Agdz, Bou Azzer mining district, Zagora Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (07/2009)

Specimen size: 5.2 × 4.5 × 1.7 cm = 2.05” × 1.77” × 0.67”

Main crystal size: 0.8 × 0.2 cm = 0.31” × 0.08”

Calcite fluorescent long & short UV

N16RE6: I will get sentimental about this one. While it is not a top quality specimen (I don’t want to fool anyone into thinking it is) it was one of the first that I added to my collection. Recently I got a better example, so I have decided to sell this one - with the original label from my collection: number F-33. I bought it during a trip to Morocco with my brother in 1974, when I did not even know what the mineral included in the Quartz was. The great collector from Barcelona, Joaquín Folch, told me that, based on the pleiocrism, they are crystals of Goethite. Anyway, apart from the history, I have always liked this one and I still think that the spray of Baryte and blobs of Quartz at the rear make it neat. As you would expect, we will send my label to the person that buys this.

Tizirine, Ouarzazate Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region  Morocco (1974)

Specimen size: 9.5 × 6.5 × 6.3 cm = 3.74” × 2.56” × 2.48”

Main crystal size: 1.8 × 1.3 cm = 0.71” × 0.51”
