Superb clear quartz, pristine and free of chipping!
Amazing smoky quartz from Tiefenglacier region, combining excellent clarity, superb shape and great luster in a floater specimen!
Super sharp demantoide garnets scattered on schist matrix. No damage.
This is an amazing cabinet sized azurite floater specimen from a classic French locality. The crystals are sharp and well formed all the way around. A part of the crystals is altered to malachite, which sets a nice colour contrast. Ex Lawrence H. Conklin collection, his label is coming with the piece.
Cadmian smithsonite at its best! Several crystals over one inch form a superb and very 3-dimensional crystal cluster. The largest individual crystal measures 28 mm across. What a fantastic addition to any Tsumeb collection!
Cubic galena crystals with second generation overgrowth, resting on a limestone matrix covered by hundreds of small sparkling sphalerite crystals. The second generation octahedrons create beautiful patterns on the surfaces. The piece is in great condition and comes from an old collection. A label coming with the piece indicates it was sold in 1936. The piece is a full floater, and the bottom side shows nice dolomite crystals.
Great aggregate of ballshaped crystals on brown limonite matrix. Very finy colour and shape!
Great azurite rosettes to 36 mm diameter forming a very aesthetic and well-balanced cluster aggregate. Minor Malachite attached on the lower front side provides a very nice colour contrast. One of the very best azurites i have ever seen from China! Great condition and visual impact!
Excellent bicolur wavellite from Germany! The balls measure up to 21 mm in diameter. Some of the balls are cleaved on the outline, but this reveals the beautiful yellow colour and adds even more interest and beauty. A superb sample from this classic European locale!
Hundreds of sharp, red and elongated proustite crystals almost fully covering a small cabinet sized matrix. The proustites have been well protected from the daylight and glow incredibly red when backlit! This is one of the very best proustite specimens we have seen from Morocco so far. A wonderful "360" rock, as it is very showy from all sides!
This specimen comes from a different pocket than the others shown in this update. The colour is much more on the brownish side here, it is not the deep and lustrous orange, but still a lovely brownish yellow hue. However, the arrangemant and contrast of the crystals on the white calcite covered matrix is truly dramatic. the coverage is very rich, and the majority of the crystals is in perfect condition. Plattnerite and vanadinite are associate species in some places.
Super lustrous demantoide garnets to 19 mm across scattered on matrix! There is no damage on the main crystals, the piece is in excellent shape and condition all around. The crystals are indeed super glossy on all sides! Definitely one of the very best specimens I have yet seen from this locality!
