German minerals are seldom seen in today's market with any amount of quality or diversity.  Old collections seem to be the main source for quality German mineral specimens.  We always seem to have a few but never many.

OKO-657     Galena     Luderich Mine, Altenbruck, Germany.  Ex. Bill Metropolis.  This nicely sized plate measures 10.5 x 8 x 3.4 cm.  There are a few tiny red sphalerites but most of the crystallization is by cubes (modified by octahedrons) of galena.  Classic patina on the crystals which is fitting with a specimen from a classic German location.  No damage.  $95







OKO-720      Fluorite on Quartz     RESERVED    Clara Mine, Oberwolach, Wolfach, Black Forest, Germany.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collecton.  This is a huge example for this European locale.  It measures in at 20 x 16.5 x 10.5 cm overall. The quartz isn't in very good shape while the fluorites are.  They ar light green, very translucent, highly modified balls to over 3 cm each.  Condition is an issue on this one however it is an important piece for size and location.  $400

OKK-989    Millerite    Friedrich Mine, Wissen, Sigerland, Germany.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection, prev.

Yes, expensive, but I believe it will be a real treasure for the discerning TN collector.  $900
