Elongated prase quartz crystals with small balls of magnetite ps. hematite attached at the base. No damage.
Striking cluster of three tapering and very elongated prase quartz crystals, with a few smaller ones attached on the sides. Great condition and shape!
Clear yellow anglesite crystals to 7 cm in length forming an awesome crystal cluster! Three large crystals head out of the crowd and set a clear focus. The piece is in excellent condition, there are just a few tinly little rubs on a few edges, but they are insignificant and forgivable. The piece is a floater and crystalized on the back sie as well. What a gorgeous piece from the classic old finds!
Etched pink gem kunzite with a lot of red needle inclusions inside! The piece is a total floater and complete on all around. Note the ansolutely amazing etching patterns on all sides!
Clear heliodor from a new find in Madagascar. Te pocket had a very distinct red layer on top of the crystals, only about 2 dozen fine crystals were recovered. The clarity of this crystal is indeed much better than my picture can convey, it is about the top quality of the find. No damage.
WOW! What a killer tourmaline crystal from an old find in Madagascar! The crystal is in fact a composite cluster of several individuals in paralel growth. The termination faces are stepped and all well developed. It displays indeed very well from all sides. The colour is green on top, changes to a blue-green in the center and peach-pink towards the lower end (which is actually more intense in person). Only about a dozen of this style has been found, and this is truly a superb one!
This is an excellent bicolour tourmaline from Nigeria! The crystal has indeed open colours, but when just slightly backlight a sharp hot pink core appears and and the crystal just glows! A few tiny rubs on the edges were resored in a professional lab. What a fantastic crystal from a remote african source!
This is a superb specimen of botryoidal mottramite, from a small pocket found at Ojuela mine about 2 years ago. The mottramites form 2.5 - 3 cm tall aggregates here, each of them is in great shape and perfect condition! The overall shape resembles a tree and is very showy from a front 180° angle. Cherry-picked from a big lot, this piece is one of the very best of this kind i have seen!
This is a very aesthetic two generations quartz from a classic Romanian locality. The first generation is milky and formed in long elongated spear-like crystals, whereas the second generation which is clear built artichocke-like crystals and even some scepters, partially parallel to the first generation. Small calcite blades set a nice contrast on the left and back sides. Great condition and visual impact!

Exceptional phantom fluorites on white barite matrix. No damage.
Deep green octahedral fluorite, small mica is attached on the side. No damage.
