JC6964.   Arsenopyrite, loellingite, fluorite.  Huanggang mine, Keshiketeng Qi, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia autonomous republic, China   $150.00   5.5 x 7.5 x 6 cm tall.  Bright sparkling arsenopyrite is coating the loellingite blades.  Implanted on the arsenopyrite are a few octahedral colorless fluorite crystals.  Minor calcite is shown as white patches on the specimen and appear etched, so I'm guessing the specimen has been acid etched to get rid of much calcite as possible.

JC9073.  Austinite (cuprian).  Ojuela mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.   8 x 16 cm.  436g.  $750.00  One of two specimens I saw at the 2017 Tucson show.  The color is not quite as shown...I couldn't get the camera to accurately portray the color...it is an ambergris/sea green, not as blue as the picture shows.   An odd color typical of these.  An impressive large cabinet specimen.    There are a few little bladed crystals of what appears to be hemimorphite lying on top of the austenite, but they may be some other mineral than that.   No damage to the naked eye.    It is very hard to tell the cupro-adamite from Ojuela from the cupro-austinite, so I am going on what the dealer told me also    RESERVED
