For sale is a quartz plate with brookite and rutile inclusions, from Baluchistan, Pakistan. This plate is pristine and a floater, with not attachment points. Quartz crystal included by golden rutile crystals that are growing at almost right angles off brookite, this is a very attractive specimen. These came out about three years ago, and no more have been seen since.

For sale is an uncommon shaped and colored sapphire crystal from Sri Lanka. This crystal is water clear, there is one small blue spot only , anything else is a reflection from that one spot. There are a series of small ascending sub surface inclusions, in a geometric pattern, these are not unlike the "tiger stripes" seen rarely in Australian sapphire. Luster is "glass face" (highest). Crudely terminated both ends. This is a strange crystal the likes of which come along once every ten years or so, I can say this because I have spent many years in Sri Lanka, chasing sapphire crystal!

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.

For sale is a faden quartz group from Kharen, Pakistan. This group actually features three different fadens, but like most of these, they are ridiculously hard to photograph. The interesting thing about this is the way it has formed with three distinct steppes, its much more gemmy than any of the pics indicates. It is contacted on one end, and the main quartz is quite blocky. Exquisite termination!

For sale is a fascinating garnet after tectonic quartz from Dalnagorsk, Russia. This was obtained by Alan Arnold and Andreas Weerth during a trip to Dalnagorsk in the late 1990s. I am not qualified to question this description, but it appears to me to be quartz after garnet, rather than the other way around. Either way its the most intriguing specimen I have possessed. I posted a thread on Mindat about this specimen, early last year, but received no replies, the thread and the pics can be viewed her. https://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,11,377786,377786 Comes with original Alan Arnold label.

Most everybody has seen a fluorite from De'An, China , and mostly rejected them. But this is an exception , I hope I have captured the exquisite beauty of the complex rounded water clear gem green crystals. I think the greyish white mineral is dolomite. This piece is way way better in the hand, and going from my experience, can provide endless entertainment. Judt love it!
