For sale is a small specimen on barbertonite in antigorite from Nevada creek, Tas. (Barbertonite is now called Stichtite-24) but as this was collected many years ago, and has the original label with it I like to stick to the original name, the technicality has to stop at some point). Purple amorphous, massive, associated with green antigorite.

We are pleased to be have for sale a big (for the local) aquamarine crystal from Torrington. Torrington is acknowledged as the source of the finest aquas in Australia, unfortunately there has been little to no production over the last 25 years. This crystal is of terrific size,color and luster, with fine transparency. This appears to have been repaired sometime in the past, considering the trap rock environment it came from this is not too surprising. Ex Clifford brothers collection, Emmaville. Ultra rare, try finding a similar one for sale.

Hard to find this classic material today, especially this size.
