For sale is an interesting garnet in quartz crystal from Harts Range, N.T. The garnet crystal actually grew inside the quartz crystal. A rear view, (not shown) would see the crystal face at the back of the garnet, is flush with the quartz crystal face, at the rear. Interesting, also is the variety of garnet, this one is very unusual in color, it transmits no light, the color is a weird brownish yellow.

For sale is a thunder egg from a most uncommon, and very remote, local,(with an uncommon name) Insolvent Track Briagolong, VIC. Geodes from this location are quite instantly recognizable, I have actually never seen any other geodes that have these characteristics. The body of the geodes are shot thru with small pieces of water clear quartz, that don't appear to have any crystal form, but they are rather uniform in size. The second pic show the rear of the geode, and its easy to see the small raised quartz pieces on the surface. How or even why this happens is a mystery to me. It also make them particularly interesting style of Australian thunder eggs. One of my favorite locations!

Once the ikaite reaches a temperature above 8°C (46°F), it pseudomorphs into calcite. Wonderfull sharp specimen, way way above average.

For sale is a superb green beryl crystal from the Triple Chance mine , Thackaringa, NSW. This is an outstanding and rare specimen for two particular reasons. First is the amazing luster of the crystal, I have never seen another from this mine, with even a quarter as good a luster as this, first rate, (better than the pics indicate) the second unique point is that this crystal is full of transparent gemmy green areas, something I have never seen before from this location, class piece. This was obtained by Brian Hutchinson , at the mine in the mid 1970s. There may be better crystal from this mine out there, but up till now this is by far the finest I have ever seen!

For sale is a grey lace agate from Calder, Tasmania. First the pics do not convey the luster and polish that this specimen displays. These are found in the tertiary gravels in North West Tassie, there is great conjecture as to their origin. A fine example of Australian lace agate. This specimen is way way better in person!!

For sale is a helidor from Harts Range, N.T. This crystal is double terminated, with one end having a small amount of albite crystals and some mica. This mine has produced I would say Australias best helidor crystals, the golden color of this crystal has a hint of light green, making a very distinctive specimen. The Disputed mine has not produced any specimens since the early 1980s, these today are rare.

For sale is a heliodor crystal from Disputed mine, Harts Range, N.T. Disputed Mine, was the most prolific producer of heliodor ever found in Australia, today they can only be found in re cycled collections. This features a decent sized crystal sitting proudly in a prominent position. The crystal has good luster. The color is yellow with a small green component. This is a fine Australian beryl from a famous, remote, old location! Like virtually all crystals from this location, this is internally flawed, but quite gemmy! Compare!

For sale is a specular hematite from Iron Monarch mine, S. Aust. This is a flashy and showy specimen of bright silver hematite crystals, on a nicely contrasting red brown matrix. This was hard to photograph as the flashes from the hematite crystals confused the camera. There are well formed crystal on the specimen to nearly 4mm. Nice old material, ex George Stacy, with an original price tag of $60.00 on the hand written label.
