The Roebling purple apatite, Pulsifer quarry, Auburn, Maine Mark Ivan Jacobson The finest purple apatite ever recovered from the Pulsifer quarry, Auburn, Maine was named the Roebling apatite, after the famous, top-quality New York mineral collector who obtained it (Wilson 1977). The crystal is 3 x 3.8 x 4.3 cm in size, currently in the Smithsonian collection and has frequently been displayed at mineral shows. The early day history of discoveries at the Pulsifer pegmatite, as well as the discovery of the Roebling apatite seems to have not been previously documented. The Lazard Cahn correspondence files in the Carnegie Library, Pikes Peak Library district, Colorado Springs has two letters that reveal this early day history. The Roebling apatite, as displayed at the 2005 Tucson Gem & Mineral Show Wilson (1977) documented that the pegmatite was first recognized as containing valuable minerals in 1839. Pitt P. Pulsifer, a later owner, discovered his first purple apatites and other gemstones from the pegmatite in 1901. Lazard Cahn, the New York City mineral dealer, but who after 1885 lived most of the year in Colorado Springs, received a letter from Pulsifer in 1914. The letter stated: Auburn May 17 -14 Lazard Cahn Dear Sir I have taken out this Spring the finest specimen of purple apatite that I have ever found. I think it would make all others look like thirty cents. If you come east I hope you will come and see it. Thanking you for past favors. I remain Yours P. P. Pulsifer 2
This letter was Pulsifer being excited about what was to become known as the Roebling apatite. Cahn was sufficiently intrigued that he discussed the discovery in a typed letter to his sister. The italics in the letter are the author's to highlight the significant part that documents the purple apatite pockets that had been discovered. The Sevillia, 117 West 58th Street New York, May 25th, 1914. My Dear Ida, Your letter of May 19th enclosing excerpts from newspapers arrived duly and I thank you for your good wishes on the occasion of my 19th anniversary. Of course if I were thirty five, like my older sister, the birthday reminders would be less pleasant. Nevertheless I wish you many happy returns and I trust that for many years to come you may gain in strength, mental and physical. I have only five days in which to pack five drawers of minerals, a number of large wall case specimens, my microscope, books, and other belongings, and to make four shipments abroad. While the time seems short it is ample if there is no dallying. I have just received word from Auburn, Maine which excites my curiosity to a very great degree. In the neighborhood of that place, there have been found, in the past, some wonderful crystals and groups of crystals of phosphate of lime (apatite), having a superb royal purple color. The owner of the farm has found at various times "pockets" in which these crystal occur. He has encountered four productive ones covering a period of about ten years. The first pocket's contents was bought by Harvard for $75.00, the contents of the second, which was much smaller, was bought by me for $100, the contents of the third, which was better than the second but not so good as the first, was bought by Holden for $500.0. Now there is a fourth to be disposed of. The owner wrote me to [to me in] Colorado Springs and the letter which was forwarded to me here gives this information "I have taken out this spring the finest specimen of purple apatite I have ever found. I think it will make all others look like thirty cents." In London, not long ago, a lilac apatite from the Tyrol was put up at auction, together with a number of other minerals. The British Museum wanted it and authorized a bid of twenty five pounds. Fleischmann, a customer of mine and, upon occasion, a patron of the museums, placed a bid of 30 pounds, Bцhm raised it to 35 and it was knocked down to Henson for sixty two pounds. Our friend Drugman as well as Fleischmann wrote to me about this matter. Drugman said he would have considered the crystal fairly worth four or five pounds. Henson accepted a nominal profit from the museum on his investment, and the museum aided by Fleischmann, who supplied half of the purchase money, acquired the specimen. The Apatite from Maine should have greater value. I am glad you had the opportunity of seeing the fine performance of "Les Miserables" produced for the screen.... The letter continues. Thus, it is clear that this crystal was recognized immediately as being the most significant of all previous pockets. Many years later, Cahn wrote to Louis Pope Gratacap, Curator of Mineralogy at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and mentioned what he knew about this crystal (Lazard Cahn papers). He wrote that "...Petereit wrote to me regarding the apatite and wanted me to tell him what it is worth. It is a superb crystal and although not complete, one end having been cleaved off, it is doubt less one of the finest crystals in the world. Pulsifer offered me this crystal when I was at his place some years ago, asking $500.00 for it. It is not worth anything like that, yet in these times of inflated prices it is possible some one may be found willing to pay a lot of money for it. It has been hawked about. Burrage and others have refused it. Harvard is entitled to it as Holden's heir. A year or two before his death, Holden, made a purchase of Pulsifer and in addition left a deposit 3
with him of about $150.00 to apply to the purchase of any new find. Entre nous, the crystal is worth $125.00 or $150.00... Gratacap replied belatedly in September 12, 1917 with a list of all the mineral news within the mineral collecting community (Ford 1917). He commented that "...Prof. [William E.] Ford [of Yale University] has figured [on June 15, 1917] and described Petereit, a[n] apatite crystal and mentions its beauty with admiration..." Thus, it should be no surprise that Washington A. Roebling's wife purchased the specimen for her husband as a gift. Lazard Cahn, circa 1928, from his passport photo.

The Frettard-Cowman topaz discovery, Agnus Dei claim, near the former Ed Over diggings, Cameron Cone, El Paso County Mark Ivan Jacobson Richard Frettard and Jean Cowman made what may well be the most significant discovery of gem topaz in Colorado on December 8, 2012. Carnein (2013) as well as Cowman and Persson (2015) have not only described Frettard and Cowman's discovery but also done an admirable job describing and illustrating the topaz that was recovered. Frettard and Cowman both attribute their search for gem topaz near Crystal Park to relocate a deposit of etched topaz discovered by Ed Over. The purpose of this note is to add further documentation as to what caused Frettard and Cowman to search for the amber yellow gem topaz. An etched sherry topaz found by Richard Frettard and Jean Cowman, circa 2013. Offered for sale at the 2013 Denver Gem & Mineral Show. In George White's 1972 Oral Presentation to the Colorado Springs Mineral Society, he spoke on Ed Over's discovery of sherry-colored (amber) when he wrote in his unpublished manuscript that, "A few years later he [Ed Over] struck some pegmatites which yielded very dark green amazonite crystals, some of which were of very good size and color. In this and adjoining pockets he also came across the finest phenacite crystals I ever saw from this Pikes Peak Region which included Crystal Peak. They were water clear and beautifully developed, some as large as 5/8ths of an inch, single and in matrix. I have a suite of 10 such [phenakite] crystals from two separate finds which he made probably late in 1954 with the phenacite and amazonite stone. [Ed] Over also found some remarkable topaz crystals. They were a beautiful amber color, severely etched and quite well modified, some even distorted in shape. It was a rich find, and Ed never would divulge the exact locality, although he hinted they were south and west of Crystal Park somewhere, so go to it" (Pikes Peak-Carnegie Library, MSS-36, box 15, folder 22, unpublished manuscript, p. 15). Later George White (1985) in his "Memoirs of a crystal collector," published in the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society Pick & Pack bulletin, elaborated on Ed Over's discovery: "Ed [Over] was always fond of topaz, and one of his last finds was of this favorite mineral. I mentioned previously that many years before, he had worked the area between Crystal Park and Sentinel Rock, above the Palmer Trail. 5
Somewhere in this area, nobody knows where for sure, he found small brilliant topaz crystals with amazonite, somewhat similar to the topaz from Mexico. I have one of these small groups. But a few years later, in 1954 or 1955, Ed hit a fine pocket of crystals, amber colored, somewhat like the Devil's Head ones, clear, modified and severely etched in some cases" (Berry 2002, Chapter 5). Ray Berry in 2002, assembled some of the basic history of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society, including compiling for the first time all eight parts of White's Memoirs of a Crystal Collector. These were republished and sold as an 8.5 by 5.5 inch booklet to Mineralogical Society members. Thus Over's historic discovery was not forgotten. A later Oral History reported by Cowman and Persson (2015) stated that, "In 1957, he [Ed Over alone] discovered an isolated pocket approximately 0.5 x 1.0 m in size on Cameron Cone, east of the Pikes peak summit. The pocket yielded approximately 7 kg of topaz as well as etched crystals of amazonite and quartz. Over sold 5 topaz specimens to dealer Bill Hayward who, after Over's death in 1963, managed to find the locality from Over's description, but recovered only amazonite and a few topaz fragments." A yellow gem topaz specimen from Crystal Park with a partially illustrated Bill Hayward label as well as an E. Mitchell Gunnell label implying that Gunnell obtained his topaz from Hayward in 1957, are illustrated in Cowman and Persson (2013). Both labels and the specimen are owned by The Collector's Edge (Bryan Lees). As a side note, Edwin Over and Arthur Montgomery's field collecting partnership during the summers, only lasted for a few years; it started with collecting at Topaz Mountain, Utah in 1934, included the Mt. Antero, Colorado expedition in 1938, and ended in December 1940 (Lininger 2000; Montgomery 1941, Zodac 1950). After the last Over-Montgomery mineral exhibition and sale in January 1941, Schortmann's Minerals announced in May 1941 the complete purchase of Over and Montgomery's mineral stock and Montgomery's retirement from the mineral business (Schortmann's Minerals 1941).

PEG 2015, the latest in a biennial series of international pegmatite research symposium, took place this summer at Ksiaz Castle, in southwest Poland. Two days of lectures were preceded and followed by 5 days of field trips to pegmatites in the Czech Republic and Poland. Sites visited included the type locality for lepidolite (Roznб, Czech Republic) and the Strzegom area, Poland, famous for its miarolitic pegmatites with smoky quartz and associated minerals. Two members of our chapter, Mark Jacobson and Pete Modreski, attended the conference. Please look for a more detailed report on the conference and its field trips in the next newsletter! ********************** Pegmatite Symposium, July 2016: All are invited to attend the "2nd Eugene E.
