JC5785.   Hemimorphite, aurichalcite?  Wenshan mine, Dulong ore field, Wenshan Co., Wenshan Autonomous prefecture, Yunnan prov., China.  6.5 x 11 cm  337g.  $250.   This one really caught my eye.  The blue color is more pronounced in real life, it jumps right out at you.  The hemimorphite is not as botryoidal as most Chinese hemimorphite from here is.  It is a layer of crystals on the matrix, that superficially looks botryoidal, but when looked at with the microscope, it can be seen that it is parallel growth crystals with a rounded form.  The blue color is not uniform, it is slightly blotchy, as if the copper coloring came and went while the crystals were growing.   This is a very attractive piece.   I picked it out of a large lot, as it just stood out and said "take me".    Four views are shown, as well as a couple of close ups.      ON SALE, DEDUCT 55% FROM LISTED PRICE

Quartz on calcite The following  are  selection of the best specimens from a new find in Reno, Nevada.  These are unique in my experience, as I have never seen anything quite like these before.  They are somewhat dull to satiny luster calcite, mostly as scalenohedra, some as more rhombic in form.  Scattered on and around these calcite crystals are brilliant, diamond like small quartz crystals in what I call "starburst" groups and sprays, where the quartz radiates out from a central crystallization point.   Sometimes the quartz is stubby, and sometimes more elongate.  Many of them are sceptered.  They sparkle beautifully and present well.  All are pretty specimens.  They were carefully collected and most have no damage except on the periphery where they were broken loose from the veins.   No one else has these, and they are exclusive to my site.   Their location is in the Virginia Range, in Reno, Nevada.
