For sale is an Australian mineral classic combo, malachite and pyromorphite on cerussite, from Rum Jungle. Here in Australia we tend to take these very special pieces a bit for granted, but actually this is quiet an uncommon combination of minerals. In this specimen the large center blade crystal of cerussite, has a couple of large balls of malachite overgrowing it, than the pyromorphite is scattered mainly on the malachite, but there are quiet a few golden individual crystals on the main cerussite crystal. Great well balanced piece.

For sale is a quartz, chalcedony and calcite, from Allendale , NSW. This specimen is from a literally unknown source in the Hunter Valley, it appears as thou there are a lot of beta quartz crystals on this piece, the chalcedony is banded under the crystals, and the cream calcite is to the right, the calcite fluoresces a nice bright pink. We obtained this specimen at a NSW Mineralogical meeting a few years ago. Interesting.

For sale is a very busy Mt Elliot mine specimen. This features exceptionally good crystal of chalcopyrite,(not at all common) fine scapolite crystals, some diopside crystals, and some colorful orange calcite. While all the chalcopyrites are not perfect, there are a few very very good ones, and of a decent size. The scapolites are also very good for Australian scapolites. While this may not be the prettiest specimen, I have a soft spot for it, and have had it in my display case for quiet a few years. Ex Doug Ball collection.
