Denver2015-112LDRhodochrositeSweetHomeMineColorado64mm.jpg (566612 bytes)

MIN#Denver2015-28 NEW!

Sweet specimen featuring rhombs of cherry-red Rhodochrosite with Pyrite and Quartz on Tetrahedrite matrix!
This is a beautiful miniature sized Sweet Home Rhodo specimen which has a lot of mineral bang for its very
reasonable price. The main rhomb is completely transparent with gemmy interiors of glowing red. It measures
1.5 cm in size and is accompanied by over half a dozen Rhodo rhombs of various size. The golden Pyrite
crystals are a nice touch and contrast well with the lustrous Tetrahedrite and white Quartz crystals. This is
one of the better Rhodo miniatures I've seen in a while with a quality rhomb and no detractions to speak of.
From the Blue Moon Pocket, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Park County, Colorado.
Measures 6 cm by 6.4 cm by 3 cm in total size.

MIN#Denver2015-36 NEW!

VERY RARE and quite impressive plate featuring Pyrargyrite and Acanthite with Heulandite on Calcite!
Without a doubt, this is the first Silver with Heulandite combination I've seen. The bottom close-up photo
displays the gemmy crystal blades of golden Heulandite sitting among the Acanthites. The Heulandite crystals
actually appear in several locations atop the white Calcite surface and I find this fascinating because this is not
a common mineral at the Samson Mine and there is only one photograph listed on mindat.org for the locality.
The magnified photo displays the incredible textbook form and luster of each Pyrargyrite crystal. They measure to
1 cm in size and are richly scattered atop the white Calcite crystal matrix. In excellent condition with few contacts.
This amazing cabinet plate is circa late 1800's. The Samson Mine was a famous Silver Mine that closed in 1910.
From the Samson Mine, St Andreasberg, St Andreasberg District, Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany.
Measures 14 cm by 17 cm by 5.3 cm in total size.

Denver2015-58PolybasiteGuanajuatoMexico4cm.jpg (352096 bytes)

MIN#Denver2015-39 NEW!

Impressive specimen featuring sharp, lustrous crystals of Polybasite!
This specimen is basically all Polybasite crystals! Numerous well formed, reflective blades
sit atop one another, forming one of the better Polybasite clusters I've seen recently. The
largest crystals along the very top measure 2 cm in size and most are well over 1 cm in size.
A photo can't capture just how incredibly lustrous this specimen is. In nearly pristine condition.
From Guanajuato, Mun. de Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico.
Measures 4.1 cm by 3.3 cm by 2.7 cm in total size.
