For sale is a lush cobalt calcite from Morocco. The translucent deep pink calcite has a nice bright wet-look lustre. The dozens of striated faces reflects light from dozens of perfect terminations. I have had to cut the highlights out of the pics, because there was just too much reflection from the flashing faces, so sorry its actually much more lively in person. Top specimen, good size, great color.

I have just updated the pics for this specimen, Im surprised it hasnt gone already. For sale is a large native copper specimen. There are large areas on this piece where the copper has formed against some other mineral crystals, and the copper now forms a cast of these, rather nicely. This piece has excellent luster and brightness, and has little or no tarnish, amazing for a not treated specimen, this is probable because of the high purity of the copper. When we first obtained this specimen, it was labeled as coming from Burra, S. AUST. But we have severe doubts about this, it is much more likely to be Michigan, material. Fine example of a native element. Better than the pics indicate. NOTE. This is not available to overseas purchases, its just too heavy the postage would be ridiculous.
