OKQ-938

Bottom

OKQ-938     Quartz     Roncari Quarry, (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford, Connecticut.  Collected by Jerry Marchand.  This piece is a singly-terminated beta-form quartz crystal that does have a base contact but shows a nearly complete crystal (it's just missing that second termination).  It measures 3 x 2.3 x 2.2 cm.  There is no damage and the luster is better that the photos make out.  $30

 

 

 

 

OKQ-939

OKQ-939     Quartz and Calcite     Roncari Quarry, (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford, Connecticut.  Collected by Jerry Marchand.  This fine cluster of clear quartz measures 3.5 x 3.1 x 2 cm overall with points to 1.9 cm each.  It displays nicely with accents from small red and gray hematite balls.  No damage.  $45

Back view

OKQ-942     Quartz      Roncari Quarry, (Tilcon Quarry), East Granby, Hartford, Connecticut.  Collected by Jerry Marchand.  This fine cluster of clear quartz measures 3.3 x 2.6 x 1.8 cm overall with points to 1.3 cm each.  It displays nicely with accents from small red and gray hematite balls.  No damage.  $50

 

 

 

 

OKQ-943

OKQ-943      Vesuvianite       Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Québec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This is a wonderfully aesthetic specimen but sooo small.  It measures 1.5 x 1.2 x .6 cm.  Both the crystals are doubly-terminated, extremely lustrous, deep purple in color and totally free of any damage.  They are transparent but heavily included (the accessory could be natrolite or another generation of smaller light green vesuvianites).  If you enjoy small specimens this one is a killer.  $100

 

 

 

 

OKQ-944

OKQ-944     Quartz, Polylithionite and ? pseudos after Siderite    De-Mix Quarry, Mt. St-Hilaire, Québec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This is a really interesting piece that needs more explanation than I can provide.  There is no damage but the quartz points look that way.  The prisms are actually overgrown by ? and the terminations are not.  They show that the crystals are actually clear.  The mica is somewhat loos and forms the base of the piece.  The siderite replacements appear to be calcite but I'd suspect they are more likely rhodochrosite.  Lots of things going on here!  $50

 

 

 

 

OKQ-945

OKQ-945      Zircon    Seiland, Alta, Norway.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  The beautiful, gemmy red zircon exposed in the top of this specimen measures .9 cm and the entire piece is 1.7 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm.  The crystal has been reattached.  No damage.  $95

 

 

 

 

OKQ-946

OKQ-946     Wulfenite with Quartz      Mapimi, Durango, Mexico.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  The specimen measures 3.4 x 2 x 1.7 cm and has numerous complete and incomplete, clear wulfenites to 1 cm on edge each.  These are on and partially surrounded by bright quartz.  It also looks like white barite crystals could be present.  It is an unusual piece for sure.   $50

 

 

 

 

 

OKQ-949

OKQ-949     Wulfenite and Vanadinite     Los Lomentos Mountains, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Paul and Dawne Dunning collection.  This piece measures 4.2 x 3.7 x 2 cm with two large crystals to 1.6 cm on edge.  The are probably orange, as is the norm for the locality, but both are 100% coated by brown vanadinite.  No damage.  Very nice form and luster.  The piece displays nicely.  $90
