Take a view at a small selection taken from over 600 specimens we will be having for you at the Ste.-Marie-aux-Mines show from June 25 to June 28.
What an excellent partial pseudomorphs of malachite after azurite. Partial pseudomorphs, because some pristine
azurite faces with a high luster are still clearly visible. A very attractive specimen with very
minimal remnants of carbonate visible on the display side. All in all a great specimen with an
exceptional value for money.
A super bertrandite twin of impressive size. Perfectly crystallized and with a small pyrite cluster attached. The
bertrandite crystals are sharp and translucent with an excellent striation.
A very attractive specimen with highly lustrous and multifaceted
cassiterite crystals. The largest
crystal, black-brown color and very sharp, measures a whopping 1.8 cm. The cassiterite crystal is perched on
characteristic a crystallized quartz matrix covered with kaolin. Ex Bach collection.
A great specimen with countless lustrous olive-green epidote
crystals on granite matrix. The
specimen is form the classic and famous locality Bourg d´Oissans. The specimen comes with a historic
label from 1913.
A top fluorite specimen, an excellent piece from this locality, however,
barely comparable with international quality specimens. Distinctly purple
crystals with a pronounced parquet structure and beveled edges, medium luster,
sharp and undamaged. This specimen
is a must for any collector of fluorite as well as Swiss minerals.
A superb specimen with plenty thin tabular gold crystals on a bed of
tiny quartz crystals. The crystals
show a distinct six-sided habit and are highly lustrous. This specimen is excellent and very typical
for this locality.
A highly aesthetic combination of whitish, cubic halite crystals, partially
transparent, and brownish gypsum crystals which are equally transparent. The crystals of both species are sharp,
with a high luster, and undamaged.
A superb specimen!
A classic and characteristic specimen with numerous hessite crystals
clustered around a larger capped quartz crystal. A great and rich specimen of the rare silver telluride. Ex
Armin Wendland collection.
