For sale is a banded green apopyllite, with stillbite from Pune, India. First I have to say these specimen are way way better in person, they are just hard to capture their beauty in pictures. The crystal have exceptional luster and a wonderful jumbled form, the stellerits with there pearly white luster, give an added dimension. The main crystal is not dinged, at the base, (actually the whole specimen is in pristine condition) it was in contact with a stellerite crystal. Rather unusual form.

For sale is a bladed baryte, from U.K. The unusual thing about this specimen is its color, there is a green component in the faces, very unusual for baryte. The radiating blades make an attractive piece, there are a couple of minor dings but not bad overall.

For sale is an old classic from Cavnic, realgar included baryte. The red color is due to small amounts of included realgar, which is not uncommon from this locality per se. It is very rare included in baryte, however. When it is included, the inclusions tend to be uniformly dispersed to make for "red baryte", of a uniform brick-red color. Orientated specimens such as this are rare. This dates from the mid 1950s, we obtained this specimen in the collection a A.Martin, from Muchich (Germany), when we purchased his collection in 2001. To quote Rob Lavinsky, " a very unique style that so much as I know, does not occur anywhere else in the world to date" describing a similar specimen. Pristine condition.

For sale is a fine tourmaline crystal with albite from Paprok Afghanistan. This crystal has a white top(probably a light coating of albite) then is a lightish green and then goes into a dark greenish black.The white albite gives a sweet accent. The fully terminated top, has an unusual almost mountain range type form. The crystal has top luster and as you can see from the pics a couple of spots where albite probably was previously. Considering the size of the crystal and price this can be easily overlooked.
