Smithsonite (Ex Chris Amo Coll.)

ID: 6393
Add to OrderNot checked

Exceptional rhombohedral crystals of smithsonite with deep yellow centers and zoned lighter edges. The temptation is to label it cadmium, but I don’t believe that it is accurate since most Tsumeb smithsonites labeled “cadmium” are pure guesses by collectors and dealers. Wonderful color, zoning and luster on this one, not to mention good sized and well defined crystals.

Smithsonite (Ex. J. Schneider Coll.)

ID: 6201
Add to OrderNot checked

Very sharp rhombs of lustrous smithsonite intermixed with dark sulfides (probably tennantite and galena) and micro quartz crystals. The color of the crystals are a pale pink with yellow/tan zones, which is difficult to capture on camera. The crystals are in perfect condition and the unusually zoned coloration is much better appreciated in person. I would be tempted to call it cobaltoan, were it not for the yellowish zones.

Light yellow prisms of smithsonite with a second generation of smaller crystals that give the specimen a marvelous drusy sparkle, associated with prismatic crystals of willemite. Fabulous smithsonite from this closed locality.

Pastel pink, discoidal crystals of cobaltoan smithsonite coat a matrix of dark intermixed sulfides.  A superb example of this uncommon habit.

Wardite, Eosphorite, Zanazziite on Rose Quartz (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 4253
Add to OrderNot checked

Super bypiramidal tan crystals of wardite to 9 MM associated with a fan of esophorite crystals and 2 MM groups of zanazziite crystals ( a very rare calcium iron magnesium berylium phosphate), all on a matrix of large deep rose quartz crystals that are sprinkled by a secondary druse of quartz. A spectacular old timer from Taquaral.

Wulfenite

ID: 6308
Add to OrderNot checked

Amber colored, translucent and lustrous platy crystals of wulfenite aesthetically poised at the tip of a rusty colored calcite matrix. Some of the crystals have micro chipping that is visible with magnification, but they are very sharp none the less. Largest crystal is 1.5 cm across. Very attractive specimen.
