For sale is a quartz on specular hematite, from Europe. This is an attractive piece with the small individual hematite crystal flashing away on the matrix, the single large quartz crystal is perfectly placed in the center of it all. The quartz has a small red inclusion visible in the pics, near the bottom, sorry I have no idea what it is , but Im pretty sure its not hematite. We acquired this piece in a collection we purchased from Germany , many years ago, it came without a label. I had hope to be able to establish where it actually came from, as it is very destinctive, alas have not been able too. Thou Elba, in Italy, is the most likely.

For sale is an aesthetic Mexican hemimorphite. This specimen features a number of lustrous pearl white radiation sprays, spread prettily across the wonderful contrasting matrix. In excellent condition and shows nicely all around, (pics show back and front) Beautiful example for this mineral from this locality, while certainly not the largest crystal available, I think it is one of the most attractive.

For sale is a pretty hiddenite (I wasn't 100% sure how to describe the color, showed it to my kids, both immediately answered green) from Afghanistan. THis is a particularly gemmy specimen, and today this quality is just not seen. Pristine condition, high luster, fine terminations, as can be seen. Better than the pics indicate. Excellent fluorescence under S W light. Ex Chris Parkinson collection. Originally purchased from Martin Rosser in 1982.

For sale is a tektite from Yen Bei, Vietnam. In the process of looking thru 480kgs of tektites, this is one of the unusual ones that jumped out at me. Front and back pics are shown, the unusual thing about this is the almost parallel nature of the front and back curves, and the overall thickness of the piece relative to its size.

For sale is a kunzite on quartz from Kunar Valley , Afghanistan. Both crystal are fully terminated and have no dings. Afghanistan has produced the finest matrix kunzite specimens in existence, but matrix specimen of spudumene are extreamly rare from anywhere. This is a very worthwhile small cabinet sized display specimen, one does not often have the chance to purchase an undamaged matrix Kunzite specimen for a reasonable price these days, especially one that sits on a superb double terminated quartz. Compare our price.Way way better in person. Ex Craig Mercer collection.
