For sale is a thunder egg from a most uncommon, and very remote, local,(with an uncommon name) Insolvent Track Briagolong, VIC. Geodes from this location are quite instantly recognizable, I have actually never seen any other geodes that have these characteristics. The body of the geodes are show thru with small pieces of water clear quartz, that don't appear to have any crystal form, but they are rather uniform in size. The second pic show the rear of the geode, and its easy to see the small raised quartz pieces on the surface. How or even why this happens is a mystery to me. It also make them particularly interesting style of Australian thunder eggs. One of my favorite locations!

For sale is an ultra rare herbertsmithite from Murrin Murrin W.Aust. Recent research suggests it may be a previously unknown state of matter! Purified herbertsmithite has been investigated at MIT in a study to determine if it is a new state of matter known as a string-net liquid. Although research is incomplete, compelling evidence has raised the possibility that herbertsmithite may be this previously unobserved state of matter, (according to recent research at MIT, there is compelling evidence that this is indeed the case)!!! . Also its ultra rare.

For sale is an extraordinary included quartz from Silent Grove, NSW. We obtained this peice from Alan Arnold, who mined it when he owned Silent Grove. No body has actually been able to identify the rather unusual inclusion as to the other mineral involved, I suppose thou it could be a form of clay, but the radiating three dimension form, does not really seem to go along with a clay. Interesting, there was only one of these every found!!

For sale is a fine smoky quartz with great phantom , from Pine Ridge, near Copeton dam, NSW. This specimen has exquisite luster, and is a great size for the location. The smokey phantom is superb, well defined with a gemmy clear top, with the smoky having hints of citrine. There is a natural pocket contact at the top, but when considering the other qualities this is trivial.

For sale is a quartz crytsal from White Rock Quarry, Magil, S.Aust. This quarry has produced arguably Australia s finest water clear quartz crystals. This crystal has the smallest, literally in-perceivable bit of chatter near the tip. otherwise pristine, it has the finest luster, and is water clear for the vast majority of its length! This location is not producing any more, I have a friend who has checked it out twice in the last year, nothing. This is way better in person, clear quartz is very hard to photograph accurately!
