Dimensions: 6.2 cm x 4.5 cm x 3.8 cm

6.2 x 4.5 x 3.8 cm. A beautiful combination specimen from the Yaogangxian Mine featuring a robust group of silvery metallic arsenopyrite crystals with several sharp, prismatic, gemmy/translucent colorless quartz crystals partially coated by cream colored pearly dolomite rhombs. The largest arsenopyrite crystal measures 2.8 cm. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection. Along with amassing one of the finest private mineral collections in the world, Steve is a renowned mathematician.

Dimensions: 7.8 cm x 3.6 cm x 3.2 cm

7.8 x 3.6 x 3.2 cm. A rare combination from the Yaogangxian Mine. This showy and aesthetic small cabinet specimen hosts a handful of sharp, lustrous, very gemmy cubes of nearly colorless fluorite measuring up to 1.8 cm on edge which are associated with notably curved compressed crystal groups of white calcite sitting atop sharp, lustrous, brass colored crystals of chalcopyrite.

Jiepaiyu Mine, Shimen deposit, Shimen Co., Changde, Hunan, China

Dimensions: 5.7 cm x 0.7 cm x 0.3 cm

5.7 x 0.7 x 0.3 cm. Here is a fine quality, classic single crystal of the famous realgar crystals from Shimen. A sharp, lustrous, striated, fiery red colored prism free of matrix. Like many realgars, this piece shows that iconic glowing color when backlit, and you can even see the hint of a "phantom" near the termination, which is quite rare in my experience with realgar crystals. The piece is well terminated, but there are some tiny imperfections keeping it from being 100% damage free. This mine is the premier locality for realgar crystals in the world. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection. Along with amassing one of the finest private mineral collections in the world, Steve is a renowned mathematician. His accomplishments include being awarded the Fields Medal in 1966 along with being the awarded the Wolf Prize in mathematics in 2007.

Rucheng Mine, Caojia, Nuanshui, Rucheng Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Dimensions: 7.2 cm x 4.7 cm x 3.5 cm

7.2 x 4.7 x 3.5 cm. Sphalerite specimens fairly well known from the Rucheng Mine, but this piece dates back to a find in the late 1990s and has a notably different style and color. Several sharp, lustrous, well-formed Spinel-twins of sphalerite measuring up to about 2.1 cm are intergrown to form an attractive crystal group which is highlighted by dozens of wonderfully contrasting white quartz prisms. The sphalerites may appear black and opaque, but with good backlighting, you can actually hints of green and golden hues on the edges. An interesting older specimen from this well-known locale.

8.8 x 7.8 x 5.4 cm. This small cabinet specimen hosts soft purple colored, sharp, lustrous, gemmy cubic crystals of fluorite which are associated with starkly contrasted black prismatic crystals of ferberite plus a gentle coverage of golden muscovite crystals and some small white albite(?) crystals. The largest fluorite measures 1.7 cm on edge and the largest ferberite measures 2.5 cm. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection.

Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Dimensions: 8.2 cm x 6.7 cm x 3.1 cm

8.2 x 6.7 x 3.1 cm. There are a few localities in China that have produced some impressive scheelite crystals. The Yaogangxian Mine is best known for its rich golden-brown scheelites, but there was a single pocket in 2002 that produced some fine quality, rarely seen white scheelite crystals. This piece hosts a handful of very sharp, well-formed, lustrous, pseudo-octahedral, silvery-white colored scheelite crystals measuring up to 1.8 cm on matrix. There is a bit of purple fluorite and unknown gray mineral (possibly something like boulangerite or bismuthinite). The scheelites are undamaged on the display side, but their growth is incomplete on the back where the piece grew against the pocket wall. Excellent blue-white fluorescence under SW UV light.

His accomplishments include being awarded the Fields Medal in 1966 along with being the awarded the Wolf Prize in mathematics in 2007.

Shangbao Mine, Leiyang Co., Hengyang, Hunan, China

Dimensions: 7.7 cm x 7.4 cm x 5.2 cm

7.7 x 7.4 x 5.2 cm. An attractive group of purple and green cubic fluorite crystals with a selective deposition of sparkling, gemmy, colorless calcite from the Shangbao Mine. This piece is in superb condition all around, and it's even crystallized on the back, making it a nearly complete "floater", but I can see a few small points of attachment, so it's not 100% pristine. The big fluorite group in the center measures 5.2 cm across, and it glows with color when backlit. The faces of the fluorite crystals are all shiny, smooth and well-formed.

Xianghualing Mine, Xianghualing Sn-polymetallic ore field, Linwu Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Dimensions: 9.8 cm x 7.7 cm x 4.2 cm

9.8 x 7.7 x 4.2 cm. An older specimen dating back about 20 years ago (circa 2000) from the Xianghualing Mine. The most noticeable difference for me is the habit, as one rarely sees octahedral crystals from this locality. The color is quite different as well with a combination of blue and purple hues as opposed to the typical green tones we're used to seeing from this mine. Additionally, there is a group of tan colored compressed calcite crystals, which I have to believe get their unusual hue from pocket clay inclusions. The largest fluorite crystal measures 4.6 cm across. The piece glows with color when backlit and looks wonderful in any kind of lighting. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection. Along with amassing one of the finest private mineral collections in the world, Steve is a renowned mathematician. His accomplishments include being awarded the Fields Medal in 1966 along with being the awarded the Wolf Prize in mathematics in 2007.

Dimensions: 11.2 cm x 7.2 cm x 2.7 cm

11.2 x 7.2 x 2.7 cm. Here is a wonderful cabinet specimen from the Xianghuapu Mine featuring several notably sharp, lustrous, very gemmy, soft green colored cubes of fluorite which measure up to 2.3 cm on edge and are associated with fine quality, compressed, "disc"-like crystals of white/colorless calcite on a thin plate of matrix. There are small chalky white quartz crystals on both sides of the matrix for a nice touch. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection.

7.3 x 5.0 x 3.3 cm. A solitary, sharp, highly lustrous, gemmy, purple "phantom" cube of fluorite measuring 1.7 cm is beautifully set near the base of a virtually water-clear, textbook, colorless, brilliantly sharp quartz crystal free of matrix. The reverse side of the quartz is coated by a layer of tiny compressed "disc"-like white calcite crystals. Ex Dr. Stephen Smale Collection.
