! a  GALENA PSEUDOMORPHING PYROMORPHITE -

! a GALENA PSEUDOMORPHING PYROMORPHITE - "BLAUBERIERZ" - HISTORIC

Details:

These are undoubtedly, the holy grail of European mineralogy, these galena pseudomorphs from Germany of galena after pyromorphite. The well formed pyromorphite crystals have been faithfully reproduced by the lead grey galena. These came out more than 150 years ago, and the style is found in much less than a handful of locations, none recently!! Ex Paul Melville collection, Ex Gregor Merkl collection Tubingen, Germany.

! a AQUAMARINE - UNCOMMON FORM

! a AQUAMARINE - UNCOMMON FORM

Details:

For sale is a quite unusual aquamarine crystal from Vietnam. This crystal is excellent color saturation and a shape reminiscent of a crescent. There is some small rememnant of a black mineral on a section of the base, which I would guess is tourmaline. This is the first time I have heard or seen tourmaline from this locality. Nice! There was only one of these!! Obtained on our recent visit to Vietnam.

A superb aquamarine crystal from Vietnam. Pristine condition, but the really unusual thing about this is it is double terminated.

! a AQUAMARINE TWIN

! a AQUAMARINE TWIN

Details:

For sale is an outstanding Vietnamese aquamarine. I have tried to capture the incredibly nice termination on this specimen, its complex, highly lustrous, and quite uncommon. Color saturation is first rate, gem crystal of this size from any other location, look very washed out besides these crystals! This crystal is actually much more internally clean than the pics indicate. This weights 23 carats! Of all the crystals we viewed this was the most fascinating termination we saw! We obtained this on our recent visit to Vietnam.

! A COBALT SPINEL ON MARBLE

Details:

For sale is a fine, fine, cobalt spinel on marble from Vietnam. The crystal is gemmy and of exquisite color, sitting neatly centered on the specimen. There are also a couple more cobalt spinel crystal, (one not seen) on the specimen. With a little work I imagine this specimen could become rather amazing. Unbeatable beautiful color, light enough to not need a strong light to appreciate! One of a small batch we carefully selected on our recent visit to Vietnam.
