SN11 - Tourmaline - SOLD
Cruzeiro Mine, São José da Safira, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 6.4 x 6.3 x 2.5 cm
 

WOW! What a fantastic tourmaline crystal group on purple lepidolite! The specimen features a fantastic bicolour "watermelon" style. Both colours are bright, intense and very well balanced. Indeed, the colours and the amazing composition are just mind-blowing! One of the crystals is repaired once, and on one spot there has been a small restoration done. All of these little condition issues are very well acceptable once a specimen has this outstanding beauty and gorgeous visual impact!

PE01 - Tourmaline - SOLD
Jonas Mine, Conselheiro Pena, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 5.3 x 1.5 x 1.4 cm
 

This is a superb doubly-terminated rubellite crystal from the famous Jonas pocket. The colour still sets a standard in the mineral world, and has not been surpassed for many years. The upper termination is in perfect condition, there is just one small nick close to the lower end, insignificant and not visible from the front side. A gorgeous crystal from the best rubellite pocket ever found.

WOW! This is a huge and very well formed, elongated azurite crystal. As so typical of Tsumeb, it is altered to malachite in some small places. The colour is excellent, and the luster is superb! The stepped growth structures in the top section make it truly special and unique!

Size: 7.5 x 2.8 x 2.6 cm
 
 
 

Very fine cluster of aquamarine crystals in parallel growth! Some feldspar crystals attached on the sides and on the base make a nice contrast. The stepped termination faces make this truly a special specimen!

Size: 11.1 x 8.9 x 4.1 cm
 
 
 

Two 2.9 and 2.3 cm tall titanite crystals sitting on a very beautiful typical alpine matrix! A few dozen small Apatites and pseudo-cubic calcites are in association and provide a wonderful contrast. The titanites have razor-sharp edges, there is one small chip on the tip of the main titanite crystal, but it goes fully to the back side and is not noticable from the front viewing angle.

A700 - Azurite - SOLD
Touissit, Oujda-Angad Prov., Oriental Region, Morocco
Size: 4.5 x 3.2 x 2.5 cm
 

A group of highly lustrous and razor sharp terminated azurite crystals, the largest ones are raising up vertically in the center of the piece. The color is as good as it could be - an intense royal blue and most crystals are translucent. The contrast to dark red-brown matrix helps to give a great visual impact to the piece. In very fine condition damage-wise.
