For sale is a double terminated topaz crystal with a number of other smaller topaz crystal associated. The pics dont really capture this specimen well, first, it has quiet decent luster, and is very sharp and well terminated in its form. This style of topaz , formed in a rhytolite cavity, and has since weather out of it, thou I cant guarantee it Im pretty sure the inclusions are quartz. Unusual and interesting form of topaz, Ex Bernie Whyte collection.

There is also another mineral with large crystals included in the quartz and at the base, and that is hubernite. This is a nice specimen thats not easy to capture in pics, its actually better than the pics indicate. Unfortunately the value of the Australian dollar is forcing up the price of specimens purchased overseas, sorry.

For sale is an interesting honey colored garnet crystal we acquired on our recent visit to Burma. This is the largest crystal of a small group of crystals we obtained from a small find. The surface terminations, on these specimens are particularly distinctive. The crystal is in pristine condition, there has been no analysis done but it is most likely variety hessonite. Very nice, and uncommon.

Considering the usual prices asked for colored gemmy tourmalines, this is very cheap. Ex Berni Whyte collection
