April 20, 2011 India!

September 2, 2009-  New find of Demantoid Garnets!  Over 30 specimens from a new find of bright green demantoid garnets from Madagascar.  These were discovered a couple months ago in a mangrove swamp near the northern tip of the island.  Most of what has been found went to Thailand to be cut, but I was able to obtain a number of beautiful clusters and matrix specimens on my recent trip to the country.  Click here to see the specimens!

 

 

August 26, 2009-  MADAGASCAR!

Click here to see the specimens!

November 06, 2008- Bolivian MONAZITE!  A small selection of specimens form a new find at Llallagua.  The monazites from this find are some of the best to come out in recent years, being richer and (in my opinion) more aesthetic than any other monazites found there in a long, long time. Click here to view the specimens!

 

August 29, 2008- BOLIVIA!  I have just come back from a week in Bolivia, where I acquired a few hundred specimens.   I have posted one page containing just over 30 pieces, all of very high quality.  Click here to view the specimens!

March 21, 2008- Mimetite!  A page of Chinese mimetite specimens, from the 2003 find.  Not much of this stuff was available, but I managed to find a few rather good pieces. Click here to see the specimens!

 

August 17, 2007-  Pyromorphite!  After carefully assembling a collection of almost 100 pyromorphite specimens over the past two years, I'm putting it up for sale.  There are a lot of very unique pieces here--some date to the last century, and many are nearly impossible to find in any quality.  Most of the major finds of the past few decades are represented in the collection--Les Farges, Cordoba, various Bunker Hill pockets, Daoping etc.  If nothing else, I hope you enjoy the photographs.  

There are 4 pages of pyromorphites, organized by continent.    Please click here to view the first page.
