For sale is a purple fluorite in quartz from Soldiers Cap, Mt Isa, Qld. As far as we know this is the first recorded finding of this combination in Australia. There is as the picture shows a good spread of fluorite thru most of the quartz crystals. We obtained a few of these at the recent Lismore Mineral show, from a small find made in 2012. Rare.

GALENA CRYSTAL Details:

GARNET AND GALENA
GARNET AND GALENA Details:

For sale is a pretty spessartine and galena from Broken Hill, NSW. The piece has fine coverage of bright reddish orange garnet crystal on galena. Which give a nice contrast, as can be seen in the pics. These specimen, in good quality are getting very hard to obtain these days. Interestingly, as far as I can ascertain, Broken Hill is the only location these two minerals are found together, so they are really Broken Hill classics. Compare our price. Ex M J Stott collection.

GARNET ON GALENA WITH QUARTZ
GARNET ON GALENA WITH QUARTZ Details:

For sale is a garnet on galena and some white quartz from Broken Hill. As far as I am aware, the combination of garnet and galena, next to each other, has only been found at Broken Hill, so its actually an identifying feature of Broken Hill material. This piece is interesting in that there is well formed quartz also in association, I can see one quite niced crystal, but a bit of galena needs to be removed to highlight it.

GENICULAR STIBNITE
GENICULAR STIBNITE Details:

For sale is a genicular (bended knee) stibnite, from Hillgrove, NSW. These stibnites are a classic form well known from this location. It cant be seen in the pic, but there is a hole, towards the top, in the center, of the crystal, very uncommon, but a known feature of a small number of these specimen. We obtain this specimen, when we purchased the collection of the late Roland Hill, who was a geologist at the mine.
