Microcline (“Amazonite”) from Longmont Pocket, Smoky Hawk Mine, Florissant, Teller County, Colorado [./colorado712/co712b182a.JPG] Microcline (“Amazonite”) from Longmont Pocket, Smoky Hawk Mine, Florissant, Teller County, Colorado [./colorado712/co712b182b.JPG] Microcline (“Amazonite”) from Longmont Pocket, Smoky Hawk Mine, Florissant, Teller County, Colorado [./colorado712/co712b182c.JPG] Microcline (“Amazonite”) from Longmont Pocket, Smoky Hawk Mine, Florissant, Teller County, Colorado [./colorado712/co712b182d.JPG] Microcline (“Amazonite”) from Longmont Pocket, Smoky Hawk Mine, Florissant, Teller County, Colorado [./colorado712/co712b182e.JPG]


No. CO712B182 - SOLD

Microcline (“Amazonite”)

Locality: Longmont Pocket, Smoky Hawk Mine, Florissant, Teller County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 4.2 x 3.8 x 3.0 cm (miniature)


This is a great display specimen from one of the most storied and well known districts in Colorado. The pegmatites around Park and Teller Counties of Colorado have produced what collectors and dealers know to be the finest Amazonite specimens from the standpoint of color, quality, wonderful display specimens and excellent associations. This particular specimen is a beautiful miniature sized crystal. It features a sharp, well-formed, intense blue-green color Amazonite crystal with distinct, classic off-white color stripes along the prism. Keep in mind that the best of these specimens (especially with top color) sell for big money these days, and considering that fewer and fewer top quality specimens are found each year, this one would make a great addition to any collection.

Quartz (var: “Smoky”) (“floater”) with Goethite

Locality: Dreamtime Mine, Crystal Peak area, Teller County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 10.6 x 7.3 x 6.2 cm (cabinet)


A fine-looking cabinet sized, fully crystallized “floater” display specimen of Smoky Quartz from the Dreamtime Mine. Please note that this piece was difficult to photograph, and truly looks better in person. It features several wonderful, sharp, very well formed, euhedral, DARK Smoky Quartz crystals with smooth, lustrous faces. A minor amount of attached black Goethite can be seen on the base of the piece that makes for a great touch. This piece is essentially undamaged, and is so much fun to play with as you can see crystallization on all sides, and everywhere you would expect to see a contact, you see an actual crystal face. A great specimen from this productive pegmatite locality in Colorado.

Quartz (var “Amethyst”)

Locality: Biedell Gulch, 8.6 miles NW of La Garita, Saguache County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 5.8 x 1.3 x 0.9 cm (small cabinet)


ex.  Clarence Coil and Richard A. Kosnar


A classic Amethyst crystal from Biedell Gulch, (often referred to simply as La Garita by many collectors). The crystal is in very good shape with very sharp and rather lustrous faces. The upper half of the crystal has a desirable gem quality purple color which grades into a colorless/slightly smoky hue at the base. The piece shows a distinctive trigonal shape, resembling a "Muzo" habit Quartz crystal. There are three very pronounced prism faces with three alternating, very thin prism faces, giving the crystal more of a Tourmaline appearance. This piece was collected by the late Clarence Coil (former Amazonite digging partner and friend of my father) in the summer of 1963, and was a gift to my father in 1976. A label from both collections accompanies the specimen, and Dad’s catalogue number (Ameth2C) is hand painted on the base of the crystal. A beautiful small cabinet sized piece of this well-known and relatively hard to find material.

Quartz (var: “Smoky” (doubly-terminated)

Locality: Lake George area, Park County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 3.7 x 1.7 x 1.4 cm (miniature)


This is a good quality, gemmy, doubly-terminated Smoky Quartz crystal from one of the most storied and well known districts in Colorado. The pegmatites near the Lake George area of Colorado have produced what most collectors and dealers consider to be the finest Amazonite specimens from the standpoint of superb color, top quality, wonderful display specimens and excellent associations. This particular specimen is does not have any Amazonite, but it is a sharp, distinct Smoky Quartz crystal with rich internal color and an interesting interrupted growth on one end. Additionally, the crystal is not only doubly-terminated, but is actually nearly a “floater”, showing crystallization on all sides with some minor attached white Microcline. This specimen was collected over 30 years ago by my father in April 1979.

Hematite after Goethite

Locality: Cookstove Mountain, El Paso County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 5.2 x 1.8 x 1.2 cm (small cabinet)


ex.  Clarence Coil


One of the few specimens of this material that I’ve encountered. This piece is essentially a pseudomorph of one iron oxide replacing another (i.e., Hematite and Goethite). This foliated group of good sized crystals is an excellent representation of a material that is rarely available on the market. My father acquired this piece from his Amazonite collecting partner, Clarence Coil in 1975.

Goethite

Locality: Wigwam Creek, Jefferson County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 4.0 x 2.5 x 2.4 cm (miniature)


Collected by Carl Kolzer in 2011, this highly aesthetic display piece is from Jefferson County, not the more likely Park or Teller County locality that one might expect from Colorado. The piece is attention-grabbing with its wonderful three-dimensional quality featuring a radial group of golden-black blades of Goethite which is flaring off a Goethite “stem” that originates from a larger radial group of equal quality Goethite blades at the base of the piece. The base of the Goethite “stem” can be seen protruding from the underside of the specimen. It’s hard to find such attractive Goethite specimens from any locality in the world, and this one is remarkably good-looking.

Locality: R. A. Kosnar claim, Yucca Hill, Steven's Ranch, Lake George, Park County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 4.7 x 3.7 x 3.2 cm (miniature)


An aesthetic and well-balanced specimen from one of the most storied and well known districts in Colorado. The pegmatites near the Lake George area of Colorado have produced what most collectors and dealers consider to be some of the finest crystallized Goethite specimens from the standpoint of superb color, top quality, large crystals, wonderful display specimens and excellent associations. This particular specimen is a great display piece featuring good quality, sharp, lustrous, golden-black "blades" of Goethite forming beautiful crystallized "sprays" flaring off the side of a very sharp, lustrous, gemmy, well-formed, hexagonal deeply colored crystal of Smoky Quartz. It should be noted that the tip of the Quartz crystal is actually purple Amethyst(!), which is not common in my experience with these particular pieces. The quality is good for Goethite from the area, and the piece is crystallized all the way around save the bottom where it detached from the pocket. It’s rather uncommon to find crystallized Goethite ON Smoky Quartz like this from any world locality.

Hematite

Locality: Buffalo Creek, Jefferson County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 6.7 x 3.2 x 2.9 cm (small cabinet)


ex.  Goddard & Mihelic and Groben


This piece was collected by the famous field collector Ed Over in the 1940’s, and is the best crystallized Hematite I have seen from Buffalo Creek. It is a very aesthetic and eye-catching small cabinet display piece that passed through a few collections over the years. The piece is a cross between lamellar “Goethite”-esque growth with a coppery-reddish color mammillary “rounded” Hematite habit. Hematite like this is not common from Colorado. A special piece, and certainly with a great history behind it.

Goethite

Locality: C. G. Coil claim on Goethite Hill, near Lake George, Park County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 2.8 x 2.2 x 2.2 cm (thumbnail)
Largest Goethite Crystal: 1.6 cm


A top notch full sized thumbnail of an elusive species that is extremely difficult to obtain in such fine quality, highly aesthetic display specimens. Good thumbnails of Goethite are next to impossible to find, and this one is certainly one of the very best that I’ve seen from Colorado in this size range. It is filled with top quality, sharp, lustrous, golden-black "blades" of Goethite forming a beautiful crystallized "spray".  The piece is crystallized all the way around save the back where it detached from the pocket. Crystallized specimens like this are few and far between from Colorado.

Goethite pseudomorph after Calcite with Goethite and “Onegite”

Locality: Goethite Hill, near Lake George, Park County, Colorado

Specimen Size: 7.2 x 2.3 x 2.1 cm (small cabinet)
Largest “Onegite” Crystal: 0.7 cm


ex.  Richard A. Kosnar


This piece was collected by my father on Goethite Hill on the 4th of July, 1980. The piece is most interesting because it is actually a Goethite pseudomorph after a Calcite crystal (but it could possibly be replacing Quartz) which is accented with small metallic golden-brown blades and “sprays” of Goethite, and a few Onegites which measure up to 7 mm. This is a unique piece – and as it says on my dad’s collection label, “only such specimen seen”. This is a superb specimen from one of the most storied and well known districts in Colorado. The pegmatites near the Lake George area of Colorado have produced what most collectors and dealers consider to be some of the finest crystallized Goethite specimens from the standpoint of superb color, top quality, large crystals, wonderful display specimens and excellent associations. This is a totally one-of-a-kind specimen, and definitely not replaceable on the market.
