MIN#Denver2016-81 Sold!

RARE!! Brilliant Diamond attached to Kimberlite matrix from South Africa!
Matrix Diamond specimens from South Africa are extremely rare in that most Diamonds are found free
of their matrix. I've only seen two or three matrix specimens in the past 20 years and this crystal represents
the largest. It measures .7 cm in size and approximately 1.2 carats. It displays an intense, white brilliance
through very crystalline surfaces. As is typical for the locality, the Diamond surfaces are covered with multiple
secondary crystal faces, imparting a dazzling light reflectivity that shines like a spotlight under case lighting.
From the De Beers Mine, Kimberley, Francis Baard District, Northern Cape Province, South Africa.
Measures 4.3 cm by 4.5 cm by 2.6 cm in total size.

Large, lustrous crystal of Acanthite ps after Argentite!
We acquired a collection of this very large, super lustrous Acanthite crystals while in Denver
and they are quite the sight to see. Most if not all display some hoppering indicating a very quick
formation as the Acanthite pseudomorphed the higher temperature Argentite. Exceptional crystal!

Gorgeous crystals of deep golden-brown Smoky Quartz along a Microcline crystal on Albite!
This is from a locality I haven't seen before, Strzegom, Poland. The Smoky Quartz crystals are
a deep golden-brown color with gemmy interiors beneath glassy-lustrous surfaces. About half a
dozen Smoky crystals are in this cluster, all of which are terminated. Alongside the Smoky Quartz
on the left edge is a 3.5 cm absolutely pristine Microcline crystal! Both sit atop white Albite matrix.
From Strzegom (Striegau), Świdnica District, Strzegom-Sobótka Massif, Lower Silesia, Poland.

MIN#Denver2016-91 NEW!

Tremendous plate featuring fine dendrites of Native Silver with Acanthite and Safflorite accenting!
This is a wonderful display piece from the classic Cobalt Mining District and is literally covered from one
end to the other with large dendritic structures of Native Silver. A peppering of grey Safflorite covers much of the
dendrites as does Acanthite drusy. This is incredible rich specimen and the display is beautifully presented atop white
Calcite covered surface. Much more impressive in person due to the difficulty of photographing sparkling surfaces.
From the Castle Mine, Haultain Township, Cobalt-Gowganda Region, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada.
Measures 10.2 cm by 12.5 cm by 3.9 cm in total size.
