BI-C0LOR QUARTZ SLICE
BI-C0LOR QUARTZ SLICE Details:

This is a very hard piece to photograph. Its a large slice of smoky citrine with amethyst phantoms, there are great many of these as the second pick shows, and they are very sharp and will defined. The specimen is polished both sides. Excellent display. Im pretty sure the amethyst lines and shadows in the centre of the pic , show the Brazilian law twinning , where the left and right hand quartz structures are combined in a single crystal. Actually the only place I have ever seen this before is in amertrine crystals from Bolivia. Rare.

BISMUTH
BISMUTH Details:

For sale is a Wolfram Camp bismuth. This specimen is way better than the pics indicate, it has unusually good luster, plus a decent amount of the pink tinge that makes bismuth unique among metals. This large size specimen(122gms) has some areas of good crystallization on the front. This is a very showy piece, and very hard to come by in this size these days. A fascinating thing about bismuth, besides being a rare native element that crystallizes, is that it is the only metal that contracts when heated. This makes it very useful in solders.

BISMUTH CRYSTAL
BISMUTH CRYSTAL Details:

This is the real gem of the collection of Hillgrove specimens we recently obtained. This is a fully crystalised. The front side show excellent stepped form, and the back show classic bismuth feather form. Unlike the bismuth from the New England fields just to the north west of here, which are formed between quartz crystals. Bismuth from this local is rare, a bismuth crystal of such size and form is one of a kind. This piece is unusually bright and, has no damage. Top shelf. Ex Roland Hill collection.

BISMUTH ON MOLYBDENITE ON QUARTZ
BISMUTH ON MOLYBDENITE ON QUARTZ Details:

This is a fascinating and a very uncommon, combination, Allies mine specimen. While bismuth is well know from this mine, this is the first time I have seen the two associated. In the pic its a little hard to discern, the sharp euhedral bismuth crystal as there is some similarity in color between the two minerals, but in person a fine crystal of bismuth sits jauntily on top of the molybdenite books. If required I can send a pic of the bismuth crystal, which I know is difficult to discern in the pic. There is also bismuth on the associated quartz. A great example of rare native element crystalisation. Well formed bismuth crystals are rare. The bright shiny molybdenite is of exceptional luster, and has excellent hexagonal crystal form.
