JC12575.   Cassiterite.  Viloco mine, Loayza province, La Paz, Bolivia.  .   3 x 4 x 4 cm 204g  $375.00  To paraphrase another dealer that had one of these, very similar....   An old, and quite large crystal for here.  This miniature is sharply twinned, with bright luster and a deep brown color.  It is unusual to find a twin this size from Viloco, and this piece probably dates back close to when some of the finest Cassiterites were mined there in the early 1900s.  For the size, it is in good condition with nice sharpness and twinning with only a small amount of edge wear and it has among the best luster I have seen on one of these old survivors. Contemporary specimens from this mine have a very different look to them. Absolutely great miniature!

JC11476.  Cerussite, malachite.  Mindouli district, Pool department, Republic of the Congo.  6 x 7.8 x 9.3 cm   565g.  $350.00   Here is  a good quality and rarely seen example of Cerussite from the renowned copper district of Mindouli in the Republic of the Congo.   The important aspect of this piece is that it's loaded with dozens of crystals. The crystals meaure up to 2.8 cm with an off-white color and thin prismatic form, and have grown together into what it is commonly referred to a "jackstraw"-shaped group. Most of the crystals are in good shape, however you can see some roughness in places. The reverse side of the piece features a few tiny acicular crystals of green malachite for a nice contrast. This piece came direct in a lot of dioptase specimens from Kimbedi, and stands as one of the finest examples from the locality that I have had to offer.
