JC9050.  Sphalerite, galena, fluorite, rhodochrosite?.   Julia Fisk mine? Leadville?, Lake county?, Colorado.   8.5 x 11.5 cm  608g. $100.00   Flat plate with bright, metallic, slightly melted look galena, black sphalerite and little mounds of a pinkish mineral I'm not sure about (rhodochrosite?).  There are small (5mm or so) colorless fluorite crystals on the backside.  This was one of several specimens a gent sold me in the parking lot at one of the venues.  His label said Eagle mine...definitely not Eagle mine.  All of the other rather dirty minerals are obviously Colorado.  I can't recall ever seeing any Leadville or other Colorado  specimens with fluorite on them that look like this...anyone has any ideas on where this might be from? 
JC9050.  Back side.  A few small 5mm or so colorless fluorites are scattered about.   The cream colored mineral appears to be the same as on the front of the specimen.  
JC9080.  Sphalerite, marcasite, barite.   G.P. Materials South Quarry, Potosi, Potosi Barite District, Washington Co., Missouri   5 x 6 cm  234g.  $35.00   These specimens are from a new find. The collectors at this time will not state the exact locality, however it is most likely from an old underground mine, although one of the two dealers that had these, said they are from a one time find in a quarry. I have not seen anything quite like this before. The top side of this 5 x 6 cm matrix is covered with pretty golden to peacock colored iridescent micro marcasite crystals. mostly coating the marcasite are spherical shaped sparkling brown to reddish brown crystal groupings of sphalerite measuring to about 1.5 cm in size. There is some minor chipping to some of the sphalerite crystals, which is typical of this find.  I looked at most of the lot of these I saw at the show, and very, very few were free of this minor damage/touching of the crystal spheres.  This specimen has a large subhedral barite crystal attached.
