MIN#TUCSON-42 NEW!

Large crystal of terminated Tanzanite on matrix!
This is one of the first Tanzanite matrix specimens to appear in America I am told. It was acquired
in the 1970's by famed collector F. J. Barlow and was a major addition to his collection at that time
because Tanzanites, and especially matrix Tanzanite, were pretty much making their initial splash
after the stone was only just discovered in 1967. This is an impressive stone and was probably one
of the finest examples at that time although much larger specimens have since come to market. It
displays a perfect textbook termination and is unheated so the trichroic properties are fully present.
The stone itself measures just shy of 4 cm tall at 3.8 cm by 2.1 cm by 2.1 cm in total size. It is gemmy
but does display some of the common internal crazing. It sits atop a matrix of Calcite and Zoisite.
This is a good looking matrix Tanzanite but the fact that it was one of the first to come to America and
its famous provenance make it historically significant. It is also pictured under Tanzanite on Wikipedia.
From the Merelani Hills (Mererani), Lelatema Mts, Simanjiro District, Manyara Region, Tanzania.
Measures 4.8 cm by 3.5 cm by 3.8 cm in total size.

MIN#TUCSON-45 NEW!

Exceptional Native Leaf Silver with Safflorite and Skutterudite from the Cobalt Mining District!
This is an amazing Silver - Easily one of the finest Cobalt specimens I've ever seen and I acquired
it for the website the moment it was offered to me. Atop the white matrix you have a beautiful display
of numerous lustrous Native Leaf Silvers, all standing upright, with grayish Safflorite crystal clusters
and Skutterudite nestled between. The leaves average around 2 cm in size and the visual display of
the specimen is very 3-dimensional. In excellent condition and very, very impressive! The Castle Mine
is a Silver Mine just west of Cobalt which has produced since 1917. It produced 6.5 million ounces of
Silver and 300,000 lbs of Cobalt by the end of 1931. The mine opened and closed again in the 1980's.
Mindat.org displays only a handful of photos for the locality with none being as impressive as this one.
From the Castle Mine, Haultain Township, Cobalt-Gowganda Region, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada.
Measures 6.1 cm by 6.6 cm by 4.8 cm in total size.

MIN#Tucson2016-41 NEW!

Spectacular and incredibly brilliant specimen of crystalline Native Gold on white Quartz matrix!
This is one of those very fine specmens that you come across every now and then that simply amazes
and grabs your attention. It's a large miniature sized Gold which displays the aesthetics and presense of
a much larger and much more expensive specimen. Quality crystalline Golds like this one don't come
along very often, regardless of their size. This specimen is incredible lustrous and is composed of crystals
from top to bottom. The color of the Gold is a rich, brilliant yellow and the piece could be displayed from
either side as both are equally as crystalline and equally as attractive. One of the finest Golds in Tucson!
From the Eagle's Nest Mine, Placer County, California.
Measures 7 cm by 7.5 cm by 1.3 cm in total size.

Comes with a custom made, labeled display base

MIN#TUCSON-52 NEW!

Exceptional specimen of Calaverite crystals on Quartz matrix!
This is a very rich specimen of Calaverite which is a Gold Telluride. The Quartz matrix displays
numerous veins of the lustrous mineral alongside well formed Calaverite crystals. A closer look
with a loupe shows a surface which is literally covered with crystals, including one that measures
.6 cm in size! Specimens of this calibre from the old Cripple Creek Mining District are few and
far between and this is one of the richest and best examples of Calaverite that I've seen in years.
From Cripple Creek, Cripple Creek Mining District, Teller County, Colorado.
Measures 5.5 cm by 10.2 cm by 5.2 cm in total size.
