January 2018 Update

 

OKP-336

OKP-336     Wulfenite, Vanadinite, Calcite     Rowley Mine, Theba, Maricopa County, Arizona.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This is a large, damage-free specimen with a nice mix of species and diversity of color.  It measures 10.8 x 7.5 x 4.5 cm.  The wulfenites are transparent and both orange and yellow in color.  The vanadinite is deep red (mostly along the top of the specimen) and these are really set-off by the white background the calcites provide.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  Great price...  $375

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-337

OKP-337    Wulfenite  Touuissit Mine, Oujda, Morocco.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This colorful specimen is composed of translucent tabs to 1.4 cm on edge.  The piece measures a healthy 9.6 x 6 x 4.5 cm.  The back has lots of crystals too but they do not compare with the front which shows a fine contrast due to  the dark gossen background matrix.  This is an exceptional example of this material that is in great condition.  It comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  $2,500

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-333

OKP-333    Wulfenite    Gallagher Mine, Charleston, Cochise County, Arizona.OKP-338    Wulfenite on Barite    Mibladen,Morocco.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This is an unusual location and a good group of transparent, orange, high luster crystals.  The piece measures 6.1 x 5.2 x 3.1 cm.  It has broken crystals along the edges due to contacts.  It displays nicely on a custom engraved acrylic base.  $375

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-334

OKP-334    Wulfenite and Copper    Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This is a fine example of a rare combination piece.  It is aesthetic showing wulfenites to .6 cm on edge.  The piece measures 5.2 x 4.5 cm and is only a few millimeters thick.  One wulfenite crystal has scrapes as seen in the image.  To the eye this is difficult to see.  The copper is in a network of fine crystals seen with smaller wulfenites in the first two close-ups.  It comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  $600

Back

Caroline Les collection.  This huge crystal measures 2.8 cm on edge!  It is very translucent, thick at at .7 cm, and a floater.  There is a micro abrasion on top edge and on a couple of the rider crystals.  It is in fine condition overall.  Stocky crystals like this have become rare things.  It comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  $675

 

 

 

 

KP-338

The tetrahedrite crystals are bright and sharp.  They are up to 1 cm each with most being smaller.  The diversity of crystal forms is interesting.  One quartz pint and one tetrahedrite have damage, so, overall it is in very good shape given the large number of crystals present.  $150

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-365

Color is actually BLUE

OKP-365      Fluorite     Cave-In-Rock, Illinois.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This partial crystal has been slabbed and polished to show its amazing phantoms and color (actually an aesthetic baby BLUE).  Very attractive.  8.4 x 4.1 x 1.6 cm.   $60

OKP-367

OKP-367     Gypsum     Red River Floodway, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  Front (first image) is damage free.  Back (second image) has a couple very tiny chips.  Exceptional condition for one of these given that they find them in the clay by probing with metal coat hangers!  The shape, luster, transparency of blades, large size, and overall aesthetics make this an exceptional example of this form.  I have carried these gypsums since they were first discovered and I know for a fact that they are very RARE WHEN THIS NICE.  A beautiful mineral specimen in every regard.  $350

OKN-914

OKN-914     Quartz with Calcite      Dal'negorsk, Primorskii, Kray, Far East Region, Russia.  2nd Sovetskii Mine, Dal'negorsk, Primorskii, Kray, Russia.  Prev. New York State Museum.  This cluster is very clear and free of damage.  Even totally problem free along the edges (no breakage or contact from matrix or other crystals).  Very high luster for the quartz and the calcites form interesting little stacks that are not distracting.  Linear, domical shape.  8.1 x 5.1 x 3.5 cm.  Photos don't do this one justice.  Exceptional!!  $300

 

 

 

 

OKN-915

OKN-915      Quartz        Dal'negorsk, Primorskii, Kray, Far East Region, Russia.  2nd Sovetskii Mine, Dal'negorsk, Primorskii, Kray, Russia.  Prev. New York State Museum.  This 7 x 4 x 3.4 cm cluster is another beauty from Russia.  It has the most interesting, clearly visible phantoms.  They are visible due to a brown grainy coating on the first growth of crystal coated by a glass clear final layer of quartz.  Linear, domical shape.  Damage free, displays wonderfully.  $300

Bottom side view of pyrite studded phantom

OKN-917     Fluorite with Pyrite   Cave-In-Rock, Illinois.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This corner cleave measures 8.2 x 6.3 x 4.1 cm overall.  The color is BLUE.  Very clear with large gemmy regions and a small phantom base.  Edges are rough, as seen.  Very desirable color.  $50

 

 

 

 

 

OKN-916

OKN-916     Fluorite      Rosiclare Level, Denton Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Harris District, Illinois.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This looks like a roughly treated specimen but it is actually in excellent condition.  Only a small chip to one crystal on back.  The appearance is due to many of the cubes being modified by octahedral faces that are frosted and sometimes stepped.  There are also some contacts from other crystals along the edges of the piece.  The crystals are actually very clear as can be seen in the unmodified crystals.  The luster is good (typical), not what I would consider great.  9.5 x 7 x 6.2 cm.  A couple small, loose but stable crystals.  A very fine desirable specimen for numerous reasons although the photos fail to reflect this.   $350

 

 

 

 

 

OKN-918

OKN-918      Garnet    Norway.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  This is a 3.5 x 2.8 x 1.1 cm example of this material.  Smallest I've seen... There are some marks on the crystal which may be natural or may e from removal from the schist.  $20
