18290:
Halite and Trona - $30
Owens Lake, Olancha, Owens Valley, Inyo County, California
Cabinet - 8.8 x 6.0 x 5.2 cm (3.5 x 2.4 x 2.0 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Sharply crystallized halite with excellent pink color, many hoppered crystals, and a bit of trona. Individual crystal edges reach 3.5 cm. Collected by John Seibel in the summer of 2013. I obtained a group of these from John shortly after they were collected; their color remains good and they show no signs of disintegration, so they appear to be stable. Of course our southern California climate has been rather dry of late so they may have a shorter lifetime in a more humid environment.







18291:
Halite and Trona - $30
Owens Lake, Olancha, Owens Valley, Inyo County, California
Cabinet - 8.1 x 7.2 x 4.7 cm (3.2 x 2.8 x 1.9 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Sharply crystallized halite with excellent pink color, many hoppered crystals, and a trona base. Individual crystal edges reach 2.6 cm. Collected by John Seibel in the summer of 2013. I obtained a group of these from John shortly after they were collected; their color remains good and they show no signs of disintegration, so they appear to be stable. Of course our southern California climate has been rather dry of late so they may have a shorter lifetime in a more humid environment.







18294:
Halite and Trona - $30
Owens Lake, Olancha, Owens Valley, Inyo County, California
Cabinet - 9.7 x 5.2 x 4.8 cm (3.8 x 2.0 x 1.9 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Sharply crystallized halite with excellent pink color, many hoppered crystals, and a bit of trona at the base. Individual crystal edges reach 3.3 cm. Collected by John Seibel in the summer of 2013. I obtained a group of these from John shortly after they were collected; their color remains good and they show no signs of disintegration, so they appear to be stable. Of course our southern California climate has been rather dry of late so they may have a shorter lifetime in a more humid environment.




18295:
Halite and Trona - $30

Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Sharply crystallized halite with excellent pink color, many hoppered crystals, and a bit of trona. Individual crystal edges reach 1.8 cm. Collected by John Seibel in the summer of 2013. I obtained a group of these from John shortly after they were collected; their color remains good and they show no signs of disintegration, so they appear to be stable.

18331:
Borax
Boron, Kramer District, Kern County, California
Cabinet - 8.8 x 5.9 x 4.4 cm (3.5 x 2.3 x 1.7 inches)
ex Robert Trimingham collection
Specimen status: Sold

Quoting from the Trimingham collection card: "Nicely terminated divergent prismatic xls to 1 1/2" attached at base, with step growth and a pale rose-tan color due to realgar inclusions. Prop up for best display. Fragile...[Added to collection] Nov. 25, 1989...Recently collected, probably by Jim Minette..." The rose color is no longer visible, probably because the crystal surfaces have turned to opaque tincalconite, thus obscuring any realgar. The specimen does not appear to have been preserved.




18381:
Mottramite and Calcite - $18
Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature - 4.7 x 3.0 x 2.2 cm (1.9 x 1.2 x 0.9 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Deep green, opaque mottramite -- mostly crusts -- on and included within transparent to translucent calcites. The calcites reach about 1.1 cm and mostly incomplete.







18551:
Hübnerite - $14
Advance Mine, Colorado Hill, Monitor-Mogul District, Alpine County, California
Cabinet - 7.2 x 5.4 x 4.5 cm (2.8 x 2.1 x 1.8 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Hübnerite from California?!? This specimen has a good coverage of light chocolate-brown hübnerite blades and sprays over the front face of the matrix.




18552:
Hübnerite - $18

Cabinet - 7.5 x 5.4 x 1.9 cm (3.0 x 2.1 x 0.7 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Hübnerite from California?!? This specimen has a good coverage of light chocolate-brown hübnerite blades and sprays to about 6 mm over the front face of the matrix.




18555:
Hübnerite - $14
Advance Mine, Colorado Hill, Monitor-Mogul District, Alpine County, California
Cabinet - 8.6 x 6.6 x 6.5 cm (3.4 x 2.6 x 2.6 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

18589:
Malachite
Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature - 4.3 x 3.7 x 3.4 cm (1.7 x 1.5 x 1.3 inches)
Specimen status: Sold

A cluster of deep green, blocky, sharp and sparkly malachite crystals sits atop a matrix partly coated with more microcrystalline malachite. The main malachite cluster is 1.2 cm wide. A scattering of colorless calcites adds sparkly. Sits nicely for display without needing a stand.







18652:
Cerussite and Wulfenite - $30
Mibladen Mining District, Midelt Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
Miniature - 5.2 x 5.0 x 1.4 cm (2.0 x 2.0 x 0.6 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

A very glassy, v-shaped, translucent cerussite crystal group. The angle between the two major crystals looks correct for a twin. At the apex of the twin on the backside is a yellow, transparent wulfenite crystal about 2 mm in size. Displays whitish fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. I see no damage under magnification on the display face of the main crystals.







18958:
Copper
Chino Mine, Santa Rita District, Grant County, New Mexico
Cabinet - 6.5 x 2.5 x 0.4 cm (2.6 x 1.0 x 0.2 inches)
ex Bob Englander collection
Specimen status: Sold

A flattish, brown copper specimen with some crystal structure visible. A good locality specimen.
