OKO-394

OKO-394      Sulfur     Baja California, Mexico.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  This is a fine crystal that measures 2 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm.  It is translucent (transparent in some areas), bright yellow, and has the expected waxy luster.  $40

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-370

OKP-370    Wulfenite    Los Lamentos Mountains, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  These are obviously the more unusual and uncommon variety of crystals from this location.  The tabs (not blocky opaque crystals) are transparent and up to a cm each on edge.  There is some chipping on the crystals to the right on the piece as seen.  7.5 x 6 x 4 cm in size.  $395

 

 

 

 

 

OKO-567

Back

OKO-567    Wulfenite and Mimetite    San Francisco Mine, Sonora, Mexico.  Ex.

OKO-565

Back??

Marix of crystallized quartz

OKO-565      Acanthite with Pyrite on Quartz     San Juan Rayas Mine, Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico.  This is a fine miniature that measures 5.9 x 4 x 3 cm.  The nest of interwoven acanthites sits up high on crystallized quartz.  There a few small pyrites but these are all on the back of the specimen.  The best crystals of acanthite are crude, blocky, and mostly hollow.  These seem to be mainly on the left flank of the nest.  Most crystals are smaller making the price reasonable on what would be an outrageously fine specimen if they were a bit larger.  The back could easily be considered the front by many collectors as the crystallized matrix is better.  No damage.  $800

 

 

 

 

 

OKO-553

OKO-553      Manganoan Adamite on Arseniosiderite      Mina Ojuela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  Ex Harold Dibble collection.  This is an attractive piece of this very rare, very aesthetic material.  It measures 9 x 4.2 x 3 cm with most of the adamites being on the right side, as seen.  The only damage is a broken crystal in front directly on the edge of the specimen.  These are expensive specimens so the price on this one reflects that damage.  It could be trimmed off but there is the risk of damaging other crystals.  The color and luster are actually better than the images indicate.    As is $1,800.

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKM-207

OKM-207   Gypsum   Naica Mine, Naica Mun. de Saucillo, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This beautiful little cluster measures 9 x 6 x 5 cm and has crystals to 5 cm each.  One side of specimen (front, first image) is very clean and other side (back, second image) is slightly frosted.  Crystals are transparent and have excellent luster.  One small crystal is missing but it looks like and old break so I do not believe it is damage and it is certainly not obvious or distracting.  This is a very high quality specimen for this material.  $125

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-355

OKP-355      Wulfenite    Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This specimen is a long, sharp shard that has crystals on both sides with the one photographed being better.  The crystals are transparent with one being zoned (second photo, poorly done but you will get the idea).  Several smaller crystals are broke but all the big, noticeable ones are nice.  13.7 x 4.5 x 2.5 cm.  $45

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-366

OKP-366     Wulfenite    Los Lomentos, Mexico.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This is a domical, slightly triangular shaped specimen with lustrous, caramel colored wulfenites.  One crystal is broken off, otherwise nice.  6.3 x 4.6 x 4.1 cm.  $30

OKP-325

OKP-325      Wulfenite and Mimetite      Los Lamento Mountains, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This specimen is a very high luster example of the classic Los Lamentos material, however the crystals are very small and transparent.  The piece measures 8.5 x 7 x 6 cm overall.  There is only one tiny spot with a couple of missing crystals.  I think this damage is impossible to find without using magnification and it is well to the side.  Crystallization on back to but poorer in quality.  All views are nice.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  $600

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKO-105

OKO-105    Danburite    Mexico.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  A fine example of this material mounted in a perky box.  Very light pink tint, gemmy crystal with overgrowth at base of calcite.  No damage to specimen.  3 x 1.7 x 1.3 cm.  Very nice!   $35

OKP-340

OKP-340    Wulfenite, Mimetite, Cerussite     Erupcion Mine, Los Lomentos, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This example is one of the most unusual and aesthetic I have seen from Los Lomentos.  The piece shows large (to almost 2 cm each) tabular clear, yellow wulfenites with a second generation of translucent brown wulfenites on these.  Green mimetite and white/clear cerussite as great contrast to this plate of crystals.  Sorry, I neglected to show the back which is partially crystallized by fine cerussites and some wulfenite.  Everything is damage-free and aesthetically displayed as most of the larges wulfenites are on edge.  The specimen measures 8.7 x 6 x 2 cm.  The specimen comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  An exceptional wulfenite specimen an any arena  $1,500

OKP-320

OKP-320     Wulfenite and Mimetite     San Francisco Mine, Sonora, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les Collection.  This is a fine example of large wulfenite blades (to more than 2 cm each on edge) that compose a specimen measuring 8.1 x 5 x 3.1 cm.  What makes it really interesting is the two generations of orange mimetite balls on the crystals.  The first generation are very small and fully coat each crystal.  The later generation are brighter orange, larger and on show in partial coverage.  The display is very nice and different from the normally material seen from this location.  The piece is in excellent condition, as seen.  The specimen comes with a custom engraved acrylic base, as seen in the images.  $400
