For sale is a chrysoprase with white quartz specimen from Qld. Australia has the finest chrysoprase specimens in the world, but sadly they are not often seen in mineral collections. I have obtained a couple of pieces of finest lush translucent apple green chrysoprase with associated white quartz, a fine contrast and a little uncommon in appearance. Chrysoprase is actually magnasite replaces by quartz, the coloring agent is nickel. Very aesthetic.

For sale is a very pretty, tan and green chrysoprase specimen from Marybrough, Qld. This is the first time I have seen this type of material, my guess is that the tan material is jasper. Whatever it is it take a fine polish and give a rare color combination. Thou I wouldnt recommend it, this specimen could be cut for its very gemmy, highly translucent green chrysoprase. Unique.

For sale is a classic smoky citrine from Pine Ridge, Copeton Dam, NSW. This crystal has high luster and literally to the base of the crystal. The base of the crystal has smoky phantoms. This find was a one off, and this is not a location that has provided good quality specimens before,, thou the style and color is consistent with other New England locations. The interesting thing about this piece is the unidentified mineral on the rear (see second pic), I have never seen it before and have no idea what it is. There is a small chatter on the tip of the specimen.

For sale is a copper and malachite specimen from Whim Creek W.Aust. I obtained this specimen many years ago on a visit to "Rock on" at Silverton, it was being sold by the Sunrasier Gem club, and until this day have never seen a similar one(thou Im sure they exist). Its a fine well balance specimen with the copper being very well positioned. The piece has a sawn base, so it can be displayed from many angles. The radiating sprays of malachite are very attractive, and eye catching, making an overall eastitic specimem, from a long closed location.

For sale is a native copper and quartz from South mine Broken Hill. This is a particularly fine crystallized copper, that is outstanding because there is a COMPLETE LACK OF oxidation covering the copper as is the usual case. The lack of oxidation is possibly because of the very nice purity of the copper. Ultra rare. Also of interest is the quartz association, not the usual calcite, surprisingly a lot of the quartz crystal are terminated xls, even with a few scattered small double terminated xls. Very unusual habit,. this specimen was collected by Dick Cannon, in the late 1950's, comes with old label.
