Quartz (naturally broken and healed)

ID: 6804
Add to OrderNot checked

A single gem quartz crystal with a natural thin break that looks as if it was run through a meat slicer. It has healed naturally and now resembles the mouth of a shark. Quartz does do some strange things. Acquired by Mr. Kidewell in 1962 from Ocus Stanley.

Bright green crystals of pyromorphite on a matrix with small milky quartz crystals. I first saw these at the Denver Show in 2010. The locality was just given as El Oro Province. There is partial coverage even on the underside of the specimen. This is the best one I have seen from there.

Quartz

ID: 6713

One of the strangest quartz specimens I have come across. Distorted, sceptered clear quartz crystals are overlapping milky quartz crystals creating white phantoms, with crystals growing in every direction and minor fluorite. Bizarre.

Barite

ID: 6496
Add to OrderNot checked

A new find just before the Tucson Show at a mine that had never really been worked for specimens. These new barites have the most incredible luster and tremendously sharp chiseled crystals to 2.3 cm (rare in Mexico where the habit tends to be tabular). They are completely transparent and run from a blue grey to yellow grey pastel colors. This one is yellowish grey. They make wonderful display specimens and were written up briefly in the newest Min. Rec. issue. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get the color accurately in the photo. To my knowledge, no more have been found.
