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.

For sale is a Vietnamese fadden quartz, we acquired on a recent visit to Vietnam. This is a particularly pretty specimen, with the bottom being a very sweet soft green, possibly from actinolite, but cant really tell. The top being clear quartz. In our many visits to Vietnam this is the first fadden we have ever seen from the Vietnamese mountains. Sorry its not cheap, but the seller also knew how rare this is!

For sale is a must unusual multi colored tourmaline, from Lok Yen, Vietnam. The top is a gemmy emerald green, then it movers to a pale yellow, then a dark yellow brown. The pics show the front and back of the specimen, the second pic shows the unusual nature of the back bottom, which may be a tourmaline overgrowth, Im only guessing this because I have never seen a tourmaline overgrowth before. Either way its uncommon.

For sale is a large Brazilianite crystal with some associated albite. This crystal is in pristine condition, with only one very small ding at the rear. This is a very distinctive piece, and it was hard to capture the true color, but the second pic kind of captures it best. Its no surprise when Brazilianite was first discovered the miners thought they had Chrysoberyl, because they are one of only 2 or 3 minerals in the world that has that lush green/yellow color.

For sale is a large size specimen of calcite on amethyst quartz, from Minas Gerias, Brazil. The large well formed calcite crystal sits perfectly in the center of a radiating spray of large amethyst crystals. Except for the outer edges of the amethyst plate, there is no damage, wonderful display. Australian buyers there will be an extra $10 postage costs because of the weight of the piece. Please no overseas buyers, the cost of postage would make this very expensive. Ex Berni Whyte collection Dudley, Newcastle.
