For sale is a nice Australian amethyst and smoky quartz from Wyloo station, W.Aust. I have back-lite the second pic to show the smoky section of this crystal. The pics don't really convey the extreme luster this crystal has! A neat specimen of what today is becoming difficult to obtain.

For sale is a rare anatase on quartz, from Bowraville. As far as I can find, this is the first new discovery of anatase in NSW, for more than 75 years. As you can see from the pics there is a very liberal scattering of steel blue anatase crystals over a number of crystals. This is a fully terminated floater group. The quartz is actually quiet good transparency, the faces with anatase, are somewhat cloudy. Great sized specimen, very small find, of early this year.

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.
