ENSTATITE (GOLDSTONE)
ENSTATITE (GOLDSTONE) Details:

For sale is a cut plate of enstatite (goldstone) freom Queensland. I have taken two pic one in the sunlight and one under lights, to try and capture the flashy sheen this material has. If lacquered this would display beautifully. This came from a very old collection I got at the Gatton gemboree, this year,the old label which has now disintegrated, said just Goldstone QLD. Tenham station is the only Qld location for enstatite, that would be the first guess. Surprisingly for an obscure,literally unheard of location Tenham station is the type locality for two minerals Ringwoodite and Bridgmanite.

FLUORITE CRYSTAL
FLUORITE CRYSTAL Details:

First of all this is a terribly hard specimen to picture. This is a single complex crystal of good translucent clear fluorite, that has a lot of deep purple phantoms flashing thru many different parts of the piece. This is a large single crystal, few if any Australian fluorite location, outside of Tasmania,can match this size. While not having high luster, the sharpness and good condition of the piece, make up for it. Uncommon. We obtained this piece of an old Finnish couple, who had migrated too and worked in Mt. Isa.
