For sale is a gorgeous colored rhodochrosite from China. We wont try and pretend this is a specimen of great crystalised rhodochrosite. There may be a few crystal faces there, but possibly not. Otherwise is a magic specimen, with good color from one end to the other, and thick color, with great saturation. This is a first rate display piece, with half the specimen flashing with incredible luster, (as seen in the pics).

For sale is a unusual color rhodochrosite on pyrolusite from Hotazel, South Africa. I first have to say that the color of the rhodo is uniform thru the crystal, the white that appears on the top in the pics, is a light reflection only. There is a contact at the back aside from that the crystal is pristine. the shiny sharp pyrolusite crystal set a wonderful contrast to the soft pink. It is quiet uncommon for rhodocrosites from this local to be found on matrix. This is way better in person. This was acquired from John Woolfe in 1978. Ex Chris Parkinson collection.

For sale is an extraordinarily good sapphire crystal on matrix from Mogok, Burma. It doesnt matter what anybody tells you, decent shaped and sized sapphire crystal from Burma are rare. Matrix specimens even rarer. To have this size on matrix is unique. We obtained this (after a lot of negotiating, on a recent trip to Burma) by a long shot the best sapphire specimen I have ever seen from Burma, in five visits there. Try and find better! While not gemmy the crystal is somewhat translucent.
