For sale is a hematite/goethite related to some sort of volcanic activity, from Mt Gambia, S.Aust. We obtained a couple of specimens of this in an old collection, and no amount of searching for references on the net turns anything up. The location was confirmed by Brian Hutchinson who's collection it came from, and who also collected the specimen. Lush silver black, with the smallest hint of iridescence. Collected in the early 1970s.

This consists of a large area of radiating sprays of bladed crystals some forming rosettes, with a sprinkling of sky blue aurichalchite. Excellent condition, great distributional. Mined by and from the collection of Norman and Jocine Robinson.

For sale is a huge pyrophyllite(nearly 2kgs), from Harts Range N.T. Besides the rather nice large radiating star burst and the uncommon color and size of the specimen, this has a small number of black tourmaline crystal among the pyrophyllite on the rear,(see second pic). This is a very old specimen acquired by Neal Smith (who we acquired it from) in the 19780s. Very rare, this is the first one I have ever seen, from Harts Range, and to have the tourmaline, association, great! Overseas buyers please contact for postage costs.

For sale is an uncommon mineral iddingsite, from Mt Shadwell, Vic. Iddingsite is a breakdown mineral of olivine, and eventually will proceed to goethite. This stunning specimen (the largest and most attractive I have every come across) features multi color irridescence all over its back and front surfaces. Not easy to capture in pictures. This old (from early 1970s )specimen came from the Brian Hutchinson collection, and I must say it took me years to identify correctly, it was only done with the help of the Australian Museum.

For sale is a small but stunning rainbow iridescent siderite from Blackhead quarry, Ballina, NSW. This is one specimen that really does like sunlight, the iridescence is good in artificial light , but is actually stunning in sunlight. I know the second pic is terrible but I tried to show the rainbow iridescence on a different part of the specimen. I have no idea what the pale green mineral on the right hand side is, but it is always good to assume any unknown is quartz! Absolute perfection.

For sale is an attractive iridescent siderite, (I have to mention here this is possible ferri-calcite, I think with out expensive testing these are sometimes wickedly hard to tell apart). The color of the spheres range from a yellow brown, to black, they are undamaged. Iridescence is good, flashing across the surface when moved. (Very hard to capture with pictures)This is an excellent example of the top quality specimens, that were obtained from this long defunct locality! Collected by and from the collection of Norman and Jocine Robinson, Ballina.

For sale is an interesting ironstone specimen collected from the banks of Coopers creek in far western Qld. I have seen a lot of ironstone over the years, but this one is by far the prettiest and the strangest. Some people see the image of a woman's breast, others see the shape of droplet of liquid solidified. Certainly quite unique! Ex George Stacey collection.
