GEM RED ZIRCON CRYSTAL
GEM RED ZIRCON CRYSTAL Details:

For sale is a rare gem red zircon crystal from the gem fields of the New England district. I have taken a pic of the crystal using back light to show the gem quality, as far as I can tell this is a flawless specimen. Weight is 7cts, and would cut a fine gemstone. There is some water wear, but the crystal form is still exquisite, crystal of this clarity and form are extremely uncommon, from any of the Australian fields, the only equivalent I have come across came from Tasmania, many years ago, and it was gemmy but had no crystal form. Ex Paul Young collection.

GEM RHODONITE CRYSTALS
GEM RHODONITE CRYSTALS Details:

For sale is an stunning, gem rhodonite crystal group, from Zinc Corp, mine Broken Hill. This comes from the famous gem pocket find of 1966, this specimen, which was mined by Charlie Hocking, who sold it to Ian Shipway , it was then acquired by Chris Johnson, who sold it in 1978 to Chris Parkinson. I dont really have to say anymore about this piece , as the pics speak for themselves. Note it has been glued to the styrofoam, but this can be removed easily with acetone , which will not harm the rhodonite.

GEMMY SERPENTINE Details:

For sale is a translucent serpentine, from Walcha, NSW. There is a large belt of serpentine stretching from south of Walcha up to Nundle. In a few spots the quality of the serpentine is first rate, like this specimen. This is a mineral that is generally overlooked by collectors, but mostly its because they have never been able to see fine material. The emerald/olive green color is attractive, and the material has a waxy luster. This stuff is not easy to obtain.
