JC11894.   Barite.  Kunming, Yunnan, China.  9 x 11 cm 416g   $275.00.   Although the label says Guizhou, this is completely different from any barites I've seen from that area.  Kunming has produced identical pieces, so this is much more likely.  This collection I acquired has had a few label issues, and I think this is one.  Beautiful, clear, gemmy, chisel shaped barite crystals on a flat plate.     ON SALE, TAKE 50% OFF THE MARKED PRICE

JC9535.     Barite.  Willow creek, Freighter spring, Mount Borah, Lost River range, Custer county, Idaho.  12 x 16 cm  $150.00.   >1000g.   Approximately 3.5 cm crystals with a cleaved larger crystal on the top of the specimen just to the right of the edge on crystal on the top center.  The crystal in the left front of the specimen on the lower left has been cleaved off.  This was a large specimen with quite a bit of matrix with broken crystals on the back and base, so it has a sawn base and back to get rid of the 10 Lbs or so of bad matrix.  The left edge in this photo has several broken/cleaved crystals visible in the photo.    ON SALE, TAKE 50% OFF THE MARKED PRICE

This rare sodium beryllium phosphate is often found in smaller, nondescript specimens from various other pegmatite localities around the world, but the specimens from Afghanistan are incredibly well-formed, large and beautiful. This piece is a good-sized, sharp, well-formed, euhedral, pseudo-hexagonal (monoclinic) crystal group of Beryllonite showing the typical heavily striated prism edges, free of matrix. The piece is actually a complete "floater" with no damage or point of attachment anywhere. This piece dates back to the mid to late 1990s, when some of the best examples of the material came out of Afghanistan.  Specimens are virtually not available for sale these days.  One dealer had one very similar to this one in size etc. for $2,500.00  ON SALE, TAKE 50% OFF THE MARKED PRICE.

JC11382Calcite.  Black Jack (Ruby) mine, Imlay district, Pershing county, Nevada.  6 x 8 cm  192g.  $18.00.   An old, obscure mercury mine, I visited in 1983, and found at the end of one adit, an old water course that was filled with cave type calcite, including many helictites, as well as crystalline calcite.  The calcite shows two generations, the first as a yellowish core, visible on some pieces, followed by brilliant, clear, gemmy calcite in various forms and crystals.  Some of the pieces show what appears to be a "faden" thread in which the calcite crystals formed in both directions.  

From the back of the water course were these somewhat duller, more satin like luster, highly modified scalenohedra.   I only collected a few of these, as the luster is not as bright as the ones from the other areas of the water course.     ON SALE, TAKE 50% OFF THE MARKED PRICE.
