For sale is a cerussite on malachite from Browns Prospect, N.T. This specimen is literally solid malachite, with good color banding on the side (not shown) the cerussite is somewhat weathered, but overall this is a fine representative specimen, at a very realistic price, from this classic location.

For sale is a large cerussite specimen with some areas of reticulation, from Broken Hill, NSW. This his large areas of crystals, with a sparkling greyish white color. Old time Broken Hill cerusssites are becoming hard to obtain, the anglesite coated ones are particularly becoming hard to get. This is a little unusual in that the anglesite coating is rather thin, leaving the original cerussite form very well preserved! Ex Norman and Jocine Robinson collection. Weight 660gms. Overseas buyer please contact for postage costs, thanks.

For sale is a piece of honey opal with a snow white chalcedony cover, from Minyon Falls, NSW. This field would have to be the smallest opal field in NSW. Now completely within a National Park, so there has been no collecting for many years. This honey colored opal with its distinctive appearance, is unique to this location. Getting hard to acquire today!

For sale is a specimen of rather nice moss chalcedony from Inverell, NSW. This material was part of a very small find many years ago, the dendrite manganese forms nice shapes in the grey/mauve chalcedony. On a world scale this style of material is quiet rare. Im sure with a little work this could by made into an amazing specimen, even jewellery. Rare Australian quartz species!

MT ISA DIST, QLD. A jumble of chocolate colored quartz crystal from Mt Isa, Qld, on a natural flat plate. This is not a particularly common color for quartz, its undoubtedly caused by some form of inclusions, possibly hematite. There is one crystal that was broken in the pocket and has re healed in the pocket.

For sale is an uncommon chrysocolla specimen from Mt Fitch, Rum Jungle, N.T. This specimen (which is the last we have) was collected by Norman Robinson, from an exploration trench at Mt Fitch (about 400 mtrs) from Browns Prospect, Rum Jungle, N.T. The identification as chrysocolla was done by Norman,it appears to be replacing malachite (there is a small amount of pyromorphite associated). Note, chrysocolla has never been identified at Rum Jungle. So there is a remote possibility that this is actually malachite, blue malachite would be very interesting. Either way this is an uncommon specimen, and particularly interesting under the microscope!

For sale is a chrysocolla pseudomorphing azurite,(I think) from Mt Glorious, Qld. First of all this is not a large specimen but it is rather interesting and impressive piece. Two of the pseudomorphs have been breached, and it appears as thou they have two different minerals inside, which raises the possible of a double pseudomorph! Fascinating stuff.

For sale is a pale citrine quartz from Pine Ridge, NSW, the quartz has an unusual form. This crystal started life as a normal hexagonal style, but because another crystal was in its path when it was growing, it took a change of style , with the top section being a narrow tabular form. This is seen rarely in the world of quartz, I have actually only seen one before.
