OKM-145    Wolframite    Dae Hwa Mine, Chung Cheong Buk Do, Korea.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  A very fine miniature of this less than common material.  It has the quality of a Chinese ferberite but is obvious Korean having the accessories (pyrite and a second I do not recognize).  The frontal view is damage free showing diverging blades with excellent terminations.  The back is the same but dhows minor chipping as seen.  Measures 5.3 x 3.8 x 2 cm.  Mounted on an acrylic base.  $195 








OKH-600    Fluorite    Taewha, South Korea.  Paul and Dawne Dunning Collection.  This forms a cluster that measures 3.8 x 3.6 x 2.3 cm.  The cubes are large, up to 2 cm on edge, but show dings on several corners.  The luster is flat, etched looking, so this specimen serves best as a reference piece.  It is certainly a very unusual location to find fluorite.  $25
