For sale is a special scolecite with calcite from Maharashtra state, India. This large spray of scolecite is undamaged and quite striking in appearance, with highly lustrous, nearly transparent crystals forming a well balance divergent spray. The well formed calcite crystal form a fine crown over the top, and have a large coverage on the rear. Interestingly the calcites fluoresce a sweet light green with a small yellow component. This came from a small recent find, and is style not seen from the basalt flows of India before. This is way better in person.

For sale is one of my favorite specimens, a calcite from Potosi mine, Mexico. To quote Jordi Fabre "Complex equidimensional crystals, very rich in faces, growing on an early generation of smaller crystals primarily covering a stalactitic growth. In other words = a natural sculpture, isn't it?" Enough said, love it. Ex A.Martin collection, Munich, Germany. Classic!

For sale is a group of sand calcite from South Dakota, USA. This is an exquisite group of undamaged crystals, the three dimensional nature of the specimen is attractive. The sharp crystals are included with sand particles, which make up about 65% of the volume. The calcite crystals are believed to have formed within cavities in limestone. The sand is thought to have infiltrated the limestone cavities while the calcite crystals were growing, giving them the distinctive sandstone appearance. Fascinating!

For sale is a large calcite on quartz with apophyllite from India. The size of the calcite crystal is quite uncommon. The specimen is also studded with apophyllite crystals to nearly 1cm, (note the crystal on the face of the large calcite) There is a fourth mineral here I feel, the dark ball at the tip of the smaller calcite, what is is I have no idea. Great sized display specimen. Ex Chris Benotic collection.

For sale is an attractive specimen of siderite over sphalerite with pyrite and calcite, from the classic location Trepca, Yugoslavia. First I have to say the pyrite did not photograph well, it actually is golden, well formed and reasonably lustrous. This is a very busy and pretty specimen first came the pyrite, then the excellent sphalerite, then the drusy siderite, and finally the very well formed calcite crystals, (not seen really well). Nice, old time specimen, pristine condition. Ex Pino Deriu collection.

For sale is a blue sapphire crystal from Ratnapurra Sri Lanka, with a moving bubble. Because these crystal form at such depth in the earth the liquid inclusions, sometimes found are actually liquid carbon dioxide. It is not to uncommon to find this in Sri Lankan crystal, but the bubbles are almost always very small and associated with knots deep in the crystal, its very rare to have one that is so easily seen, in a clean part of the crystal.
