For sale is an interesting pink calcite (mangarno) on pyrite from the rapidly becoming famous, Huanggang mine, Inner Mongolia. Sharp, undamaged crystals of calcite sit on a bid of bright (not shown clearly in the pic) pyrite crystals. This is quite unusual for this location, this is the first one I have seen on undamaged pyrite! The fluorescence is first rate as would be expected! and the specimen comes with its original label, showing the original purchase cost, $135.00. These have only been available for a couple of years, so this was a relatively recent price!

For sale is a very rare ordontilite from an unknown location, most likely USA, but not sure. This huge for the species, came out of Bernie Whytes collection, unfortunately with no accompanying references. To quote Alfredo Petrov "Bone starts as the mineral Hydroxylapatite (with some organic components too). During long burial in soil, some of the hydroxyl part (the "(OH)" in the chemical formula) can slowly get replaced by fluorine (F), and eventually the mineral part turns into the mineral Fluorapatite" there is some fluorescence, yellow color, typical of fluorapatite.

For sale is a rather nice orpiment crystal from Peru. Please note the color is actually a more golden color than the pics indicate, much less red saturation. These orpiment crystals coming out of Peru, are second only to a discovery made in China in 1990, and which are no longer seen. The gemmy nature, the beautiful saturated golden color, and the size, make them standouts from the crowd. This is a single fully terminated single crystal, which is hard to go past, as far as this species goes.
