Sharing A few Kg's over the next coming weeks auctions of a remarkable discovery made at a classic locality that has not produced the likes of these type specimens and particularly of this exceptional quality in nearly a century!

My Ancestors were miners and owner/operators in this Mining District which produced Zinc, Iron, Copper, Silver and most valued for its contribution of Lead and stock certificates to support the 124th N.Y.S.V during the Civil War!

Amazing local history steeped in this Famed old Locality aboud with lore of Gold, Silver Lead and other notable occurance of Brookite, Iridescent Hematite, Free Native Gold, Chalcopyrites, Sphalerites, Galena and much more!!

I am offering a fine example of the classic druze and quartz crystal excrusted floaters this highly regarded locality was know for. Sharp and undamaged X'Ls of the finest Gem brillance Ellenvilles sought after rarities a find of a lifetime!! Literally!!

Interestingly enough I must add the Ancient soils of my Sassafrass and Blueberry Dominant Forest have infused a lovely Rootbeer flavored aromatherapy to my excavation sessions and the lovely crystal rich Rootbeer flavored concentrates/pocket clays I am offering in additional auctions to come!!


For auction here is a very fine and asthetic Ellenville Classic of Partially druze encrusted Floater fragment handsomely saturated with both undamaged Brillant Citrine Colored and colorless Gem quality Ellenville Quartz Specimen measures approx 3.5 by 3 inches at its maximum

Professionally prepped Specimens of the Eceptional clarity and form that Ellenville is famous for will be available for your bidding pleasure over the coming weeks a few I will start with a very small reserve for the enjoyment of collectors!

Suprisingly most of which that has been once again uncovered from this recent and comperable find was origionally purchased by Tiffany Co in the 1930's and finding its way to the Chicago Exposition worked its way into the finest collections in the world!

I have a very limited amount of Ellenville material some old stock and some recovered from a pocket the old miners somehow overlooked one of the best!!. Most of what was recovered from the most recent discovery are of stunning and unique character, with secondary Druze, Metallics, others primary formed 360 degrees of crystalline WOW!! The vast majority were meticulously and concienciouslly recovered with no damage whatsoever and measure upwards of one meter!! All Winning bidders will be recieving items individually and carefully packed.

I am processing several kg's of Large floater cluster/plates to be listing in the very near future.

As for the Pocket wall Depicted in Picture is absolutly stunning and after my careful cleaning and reassamblage Im sure will land itself in a fine museum as it truly rivals what I have seen in the Smithsonian and Natural History Museum!

I will also be offering 1,5,10kg parcels of crystal point pocket concentrates and pocket clay that yeails majority of Dt's/Druze and Gorgeous Micro Clusters for collecters enjoyment
