"Raspberry" Garnet
Quality cabinet sized specimens of Grossular Garnet like this have faded from the dealers sales cabinets. High quality specimens such as this are a thing of the past. I acquired two flats from Benny Fenn (co-owner/miner of the deposit) in 1998. In a recent discussion with Mr Fenn, he indicated to me that the deposit is nearly depleted and has become uneconomical to continue. I kept the three best specimens from my original purchase in 1998 for myself and sold the rest in 2001 to a collector/ dealer.
Now, I have decided to part with one of the three "Best of the Best" from my collection.  More information and analysis of this unique deposit can be found in the
"Mineralogical Record", volume 34, number 6, Nov-Dec 2003 Special Issue III Mexico.
A limited number of quality size cabinet specimens were ever mined from this deposit. This will be the only one offered for sale. Specimen measures
2 1/2" x 3" x 3 1/2"
From the Sierra De Cruces Ranch, Coahuila, Mexico
Item Code: raspgar01 SOLD

Fluorapophyllite

From the original well find at Momin Akhada, Rahuri, Ahmedngar, Maharashtra, India. Featured in the article, Hot Tips, Cool Crystals:Rare apophyllite crystals come to light in a well, by Brinda Gill, in the March 2003 (VOL.33 NUM.3) issue of "Rock and Gem" magazine.  The article highlighted this rare and unusual find. A very fine crystal grouping on a little matrix of Stilbite. Specimen is 1 1/2" x 2" x 2 1/4". 
This location yielded a limited number of specimens. Very few if any specimens of this quality are still available on the open market.

A true and rare classic! Fluorapophyllite on Stilbite from Momin Akhada, Rahuri, Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, India. This specimen is from the original well find. An article appeared in the March 2003 issue of Rock and Gem describing this unusual and limited find. I acquired a small lot of these remarkable specimens when they first became available in 2003. This specimen  is 1 3/16" x 2 3/16' x 2 3/4". Main crystal cluster is 3/4" x 1 3/16" x 1 3/16" and is resting on a snow white matrix of Stilbite crystals. This location yielded a limited number of specimens. Very few if any specimens of this quality are still available on the open market.
