WMISC-14/5 - Corundum (var. ruby)

Mysore District (Karnataka, India)

Loose tabular hexagonal crystal of purplish red, opaque corundum (var. ruby) with interesting triangular growth features on the pinacoidal faces. Some remainings of biotite matrix attached. Undamaged.

WMISC-08/85 - Spessartine and galena

Broken Hill, Yancowinna Co. (New South Wales, Australia)

Dark brown partial crystals of spessartine to about 2.5 cm. across intermixed with massive galena and greyish quartz. Some of the smaller crystals are translucent reddish and quite well formed. There are small cleaved masses of rhodonite. Although not perfect, this is a good example of this classic association from Broken Hill.

WMISC-08/83 - Almandine

Broken Hill, Yancowinna Co. (New South Wales, Australia)

The Broken Hill locality is known, among others, by its nice spessartine crystals embedded in galena. Less known (and less beautiful) are the almandine crystals that appear in the country rock. The specimen presented here is a loose opaque dark red partial crystal of almandine, combination of dodecahedron and trapezohedron. Presents some contact areas and remnants of matrix.

WMISC-10/11 - Prehnite

Sandaré, Nioro du Sahel Circle (Kayes Region, Mali)

A matrixless specimen of translucent green prehnite showing smooth spherical aggregates with an overgrowth of orthorhombic "clamshell" crystals on opposite sides of the spheres. There are some dark green needles of epidote as inclusions. Undamaged and quite different from the typical prehnites from Mali.

1.9x1.7x1.6 - 18 €

There are some dark green needles of epidote as inclusions. Undamaged and quite different from the typical prehnites from Mali.

WMISC-10/14 - Prehnite

Sandaré, Nioro du Sahel Circle (Kayes Region, Mali)

A matrixless specimen of translucent green prehnite showing smooth spherical aggregates with an overgrowth of orthorhombic "clamshell" crystals on opposite sides of the spheres. There are some dark green needles of epidote as inclusions. Undamaged and quite different from the typical prehnites from Mali.

WMISC-14/6 - Pyromorphite

Les Farges Mine, Ussel (Corrèze, France)

Small cluster of hexagonal crystals of brownish pyromorphite with hoppered terminations to about 1 cm. long. Near the terminations there is an overgrowth of tiny crystals with lighter color and some translucency. Minor damage as can be seen in the pictures.

1.8x1.8x1.2 - 25 €

 

 

WMISC-14/7 - Pyromorphite

Les Farges Mine, Ussel (Corrèze, France)

Small cluster of hexagonal crystals of brownish pyromorphite with hoppered terminations to about 8 mm. long. Some damage as can be seen in the pictures.

1.7x1.7x1.7 - 25 €

 

 

WMISC-14/8 - Pyromorphite

Les Farges Mine, Ussel (Corrèze, France)

Small cluster of hexagonal crystals of brownish pyromorphite with hoppered terminations to about 9 mm. long on a little piece of baryte matrix. Near the terminations there is an overgrowth of tiny crystals with lighter color and some translucency. Quite clean of damage.

1.6x1.5x1.3 - 20 €

 

 

WMISC-11/1 - Manganite

Ilfeld, Harz Mtns. (Thuringia, Germany)

A vein of black fibrous manganite in matrix shows an open vug with small lustrous crystals to about 4 mm. with minor white barite. Modest specimen from a classic locality.

5.5x5.2x3.3 - 18 €

 

 

WMISC-06/2 - Wulfenite on galena

Mezica (Slovenia)

Heavy mass of altered galena and rusty limonite with several clusters of caramel to yellow platy crystals of wulfenite to about 1 cm. on edge. There are other morphologies in different places as psudocubic crystals or small elongated pyramidal crystals. A few small grey crystals of cerussite to about 0.2 cm. here and there. Considering the fragility of wulfenite and the age of the specimen, damage is minimal (some crystals with broken edges). From an old Spanish collection with label stating locality as Myers (Mies is the former name of Mezica).
