For sale is what I call an opal sandwich, opal on selentite on mudstone, on opal on selenite, on opal. This is a fantastic example of a unusual sequence of opal seam. The opal has not been polish, bUt cleaned with water and a good brush. Facinating, solid structure, this material came from a find in the early 1970s, I have never seen any others! Ex Brian Hutchinson collection.

For sale is a specimen of peanut wood, an unusual petrified driftwood, from Carnarvon, W.Aust. The name comes from the resemblance of the lightly colored bore holes made by a marine worm, looking like peanuts. Peanut wood has to be collected not mined, and can be considered reasonably uncommon, occasionally some come to market, but the supply is very irregular. This specimen is well balanced in color.

For sale is an uncommon style of quartz, from Silent Grove, Torrington, NSW. This interesting water clear specimen has a reverse taper, in form, not particularly common.
