JC10484.   Calcite (cobaltoan).  Agoudal Mines, Agoudal, Bou Azer District (Bou Azzer District), Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ Region, Morocco.        8 x 12.5 cm  688g.  $350.00.  The specimen features a solid coating of bright pink cobaltoan calcite with a solid matrix, so it is not fragile and displays very well.    The mine is currently flooded I have been told, so the chances of more of these from this particular mine is slim.

JC5065.  Cerussite.  Daoping Lead-Zinc mine, Guangxi prov., China.  6 x 8 cm  389g.  $90.00.   A tough one to photograph, as the crystals blend together.  Has reticulated crystals, bladed crystals, and "snowflake" crystals all together.  One of the brighter, prettier cerussites I've seen from here.  Two views are shown to try to get an idea of the myriad crystals composing this specimen.  Reminds me of the old 9 level cerussites from the Bunker Hill mine that came out in the 1980's.   This one will be mailed packed in soap powder due to its fragility.  These were found earlier on at the Daoping mine.

JC9070.  Amethystine, grape agate/grape chalcedony?  Manakarra beach?, West Sulawesi, Indonesia.   7 x 9 cm  137g.  $125.00.   There was quite a bit of this stuff scattered around the Tucson show, 2018.  The only definitive location is Sulawesi...I have not seen an exact verified location as yet.  Manakarra beach is consistant amongst several dealers, so for now I'm going with that.  The poorer quality material is off color, with the better stuff a nice lavender/amethyst color.  The poorer material does not have any luster, whereas the better material has a nice shine of minute, microscopic, quartz? that makes up the chalcedony.  Prices are all over the place, and surprisingly high considering the abundance of material.   I picked up two, with nice luster and color of intermediate quality.
