JC10244.   Linarite.  Dispozitch mine, Silver Star district, Excelsior mountains, Mineral county, Nevada.  3.5 x 3.5 cm   82g.  $ 25.00      Small patch of brilliant flat lying crystals.  Matrix is oxidized country rock with what is called steel galena, the galena visible on the very bottom of the specimen as the gray material.  It is quite lustrous.    This is a "lost" or misplaced mine we have been looking for off and on for 30 years.  It is mislocated in all the literature.  We finally found it after a grueling hike in the Excelsior mountains, and to help prove we had the right location, there was an old wooden sign in the side of the main adit that said "Dispozitch lead silver mining company".   The mine has been thoroughly worked out by the miners, and very little ore was found in place.  What made this mine noteworthy, in the literature the ore was listed as linarite, brochantite and sulfides.  As we looked over the little bit of ore left in place, the minerals present are galena, chalcopyrite, and tetrahedrite as sulfides/sulfosalts.  It is all partially oxidized with linarite very abundant, with lesser brochantite.  A colorless mineral, late stage, present with the linarite, on at least one specimen is clearly leadhillite in less than 1mm colorless crystals of classic form.  On the majority of specimens it is very difficult to tell whether the colorless sparkly material is leadhillite or cerussite

JC10313.  Molybdenite, hornblende, quartz, feldspar, powellite.  Pine Creek mine, Bishop district, Scheelite, nr. Bishop, Inyo county, California.  4 x 4.5 cm  50g.  $18.00.   Grayish granular quartz and white feldspar, accompanied by black hornblende crystals makes up the matrix, with numerous anhedral to subhedral molybdenite crystals scattered around.   The powellite? is massive, and is present in patches around the molybdenite crystals; it has been identified by its bright yellow fluorescence, but has not been verified by x-ray diffraction or other means.  Specimen has a sawn base.  
JC10316.  Molybdenite, hornblende, quartz, feldspar, powellite  Pine Creek mine, Bishop district, Scheelite, nr. Bishop, Inyo county, California.  6.5 x 6.5 cm  176g.  $20.00.  Anhedral to subhedral molybdenite is embedded in a grayish, granular quartz matrix, with a greenish not identified mineral (pyroxene?).  A few black hornblende crystals are also present.  Small, scattered patches of powellite? are also present.  The powellite? has been identified by its bright yellow fluorescence, but has not been verified by x-ray diffraction or other means.  Specimen has a sawn base.

JC10287.  Molybdenite, quartz.  Molybdenite creek, Mono county, California.  4 x 7 cm.  121g.  $5.00.  Was curious about the name of the creek, so hiked up the canyon to see why it was named Molybdenite creek, and found the molybdenite on the edge of a large quartz outcrop.  These are representative of the molybdenite that is present.  More of a curiosity/ore specimen/location specimen.
JC10289.  Molybdenite, quartz.  Molybdenite creek, Mono county, California.  5 x 6 cm.   164g.  $5.00.   Was curious about the name of the creek, so hiked up the canyon to see why it was named Molybdenite creek, and found the molybdenite on the edge of a large quartz outcrop.  These are representative of the molybdenite that is present.  More of a curiosity/ore specimen/location specimen.
JC8630.  Muscovite pseudo microcline, schorl.  Erongo mountain, Erongo region, Namibia.  5 x 7 cm  52g.  $85.00.    Sort of a combination of pseudo and epimorph after microcline.   Some of these are hollow, while the muscovite shows the obvious microcline form.   Scattered schorl crystals decorate the muscovite.               ON SALE, TAKE 40% OFF THE MARKED PRICE.
