An incredible rare old picture stone (slate) from China. These fascinating item do not make it out of China, often, especially of this quality. I have noticed an unusual reaction from people who have viewed the piece, half of them love it, and the other half dont like it at all. Im in the former. Like all of these there is some work done to emphasis the picture, but is is extremely minimal on this peice.

For sale is an agate bowl from Mexico. This specimen dates from the 1970 and they were used as key bowls or pin bowls. The very high polish on the specimen makes it hard to photograph, without getting a lot of reflection from the camera etc. Excellent agate with beautiful colors, these are just not available today!

For sale is a large plate of alpine quartz from Switzerland. Its not really easy to see in the pics, but the termination faces of these quartz all have a dusting of green chlorite. There is a small amount of damage but not really taking away from the piece. There is also a bonus. of a single decent sized pyrite crystal sitting among the quartz. We have had this for many years and it came from the collection of A Martin, of Munich Germany which we purchased. This has a sawn base. Not available to overseas purchasers!

For sale is an amazing quartz from China. This is called 'The Rocket' for obvious reasons, first this is not a large specimen, but it is outstanding in form, it must be noted that the luster is good, not really captured in the pics. The pics show front and back of the specimen. Complete specimen double terminated, with no damage. This specimen is way way better in the hand, I my opinion this is the most intriguing, quartz I have come across for many years.
