JC9943.   Epidote, albite.  Tormiq valley, Haramosh mountains, Skardu district, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan.   8 x 8 x 8.5 cm  464g.   $500.00   From a limited find at Tormiq.  Talking to the dealer that had these, they apparently came from a single pocket collected in late 2017.    He had several of these at Tucson, 2019, and I acquired all of them.  He claimed these were the last and best pieces, although a few inferior specimens were still around.   The matrix is orthoclase (or microcline?).  Suspended in the epidotes are scattered white crystals of albite for nice contrast.   The specimens consist of a dense mass of green epidote sprays in an almost jackstraw like habit.  Luster is quite bright, and damage is very minimal.   The specimen is a mound of crystals, with crystals on all sides of the piece.    Much better in person, these are classic, superior specimens from a one time find of limited extent.  Searching the internet, I have found a few of these in miniature to small cabinet sizes for over $1,000.   This one had some excess matrix which had to be trimmed off with a trim saw, so there is a small 2 cm or so saw mark on one edge of the base, visible in this photo on the base of the specimen    ON SALE, TAKE 40% OFF THE MARKED PRICE

JC12090.  Fluorite.   Felix mine, Azusa, Los Angeles county, California.   5.5 x 6.5 cm 163g  $300.00.   Beautiful green rather modified crystals from the old pretty much worked out Felix "mine".  More of a trench and random diggings in decomposed granite.    This is older, now rare, highly representative, classic material.  These green fluorites were collected in the early 1990s, and are seldom available even within California. The veins are very small, and hard to work. The "mine" is tucked into a near inaccessible canyon above a suburban development within the greater Los Angeles area, and can be considered a mineral from a very urban locale. This particular piece is very gemmy and translucent, with excellent color.  Rare to see nice specimens of these anymore.    This is a nice one.    Recent material from here mostly consists of small fragments, some individual small crystals, from narrow veins in the decomposing granite.   Nothing even approaching the quality of the pieces collected 30 odd years ago.     ON SALE, TAKE 40% OFF THE MARKED PRICE.
