For sale is a fine axinite group from probably the top axinite location in the world, Puiva, Russia. These crystals are an excellent gemmy, mauve, and high glassy luster. Some of these razor sharp crystals, could easily be cut facetted for gems. There are a few trivial dings, but on a specimen that has two crystals to near 35mm, this is easily overlooked. As a bonus they sit on a small matrix, unusual for the location. This is a hard specimen to photograph.

For sale is a huge baryte from the famous Clara mine, Germany. This amazing mine which is still operating, started mining in 1726. This a striking and excellent plate, the color zonation of the phantoms is very sharp. Condition is amazing as you can see from the pics, there is one small dinged crystal, as can be seen. This historic specimen came from the Bernie Whyte collection, there are two other prior collections numbers also on it. I have no idea how old the specimen is but would guess its at least early to middle last century. Overseas buyers please contact for postage cost, this is heavy!

When we obtained this piece it was labeled as coming from Flinders Ranges S Aust. The barytes do look a lot like Flinders Ranges material,but the spray of stibconite, rules this location out. China is really the only likely location. The crystal have some fine drusy quartz on several of the faces making a nice highlight. Excellent translucent crystals with good luster, no damage, displays well.

Formed as crude barite crystals formed in a sandstone, trapping the sand grains, light haematite staining. Weight is a whopping 612gms, so overseas buyers please contact us before buying.

For sale is a wonderful Chinese bi-color calcite from Daye mines. The pristine crystal sits proudly in a prominent position, on the matrix. This interesting crystal was first red hematite included and then came a clear second generation of calcite over the top of the original crystal. The Daye mines have rapidly become world famous for the amazing range of top specimens coming from there. Ex Alan Arnold collection.

For sale is what I consider rare, bi-color cobalt calcite from Morocco. This specimen which I have had for ten years is the only two color specimen I have ever seen from this locality. The orange tops to the pink crystal is certainly unusual, there is a cleaved crystal in there, but overall this is a nice piece. Definitely a one off.
