I found this specimen is a small rock shop in Rolla, Missouri. We stopped there on our recent trip to California. The store is closing and the owner pulled this out of his old basement stock. It is from The Navidad Mine, Rodeo Municipality, Durango Mexico. (yes this is the same location that many wonderful credits have come from).The fluorites are pale lavender/purple translucent octahedral crystals. They sit and display nicely across the matrix. The largest crystal is approximately 2.0 x 1.8 cm.
Great display piece. Half of this specimen shows large dolomite rhombs. The other half is a combination of azurite and malachite in gypsum covered nodules. This specimen is from Bou Baker, Touissit – Bou Beker mining district, Oriental Region, Morocco.
This is a great grouping of the three minerals. The beryl crystals are translucent and have great luster. They sit prominently while being contrasted by white albite and muscovite crystals. This specimen is from the Itatiala Mine, Conselheiro, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
This specimen comes from a Canadian collection which was focussed on native elements. This was originally purchased from an old stash with was brought to market 20 years ago. The specimen displays herringbone-patterned spinel-twinned silver crystals. It comes from the El Bonanza Mine, Port Radium, North West Territories, Canada.
