This week we are offering a completely random mix of species, locations, and historic oddities, spanning acquisitions we made between the early 2000s and now. We're offering first sight of many new specimens from the lifelong collections of: Dr. Bob Reynolds, long the curator at the San Bernardino County Museum; and Chet Lemanski (Lemanskiite and MINDAT fame). So many items in these collections we simply never see on the market today – and yet here they are, up for auction! These are NOT show leftovers, but are being released FIRST to the internet. We have added a selection of tourmaline, malachite and quartz, as well.
1. Superb large Russian VIVIANITE from the Vladimir Pelepenko Collection.
2. TOURMALINES including a large gem Pederneira INDICOLITE
3. Classic old Tri-State Distric GALENA, DOLOMITE & CHALCOPYRITE
4. MALACHITE specimens and QUARTZ specimens, including rare SMOKY QUARTZ with TOURMALINE from the Pederneira Mine.
5. Old, circa 1940s, FLUORITE from Clay Center with a large crystal
