This is a fantastic large topaz featuring a very elegant elongated shape and superb clarity! The luster is also awesome all around! The size is indeed remarkable, it is just a bit over 3 inches tall!

Gerental, Kanton Wallis, Switzerland
Size: 4.4 x 2.5 x 1.2 cm

Super sharp, super clear, doubly terminated, floater crystal ... just trivial quartz, but so unique and special! The shape is indeed a big surprise. Hard to capture this beauty on a picture, it is indeed much better in person.

DS06 - Iron Rose - SOLD

Size: 4.6 x 4 x 4 cm

Uncommonly thick cluster of hematites resting on white adularia crystals. Great contrast and aesthetics!

A828 - Quartz with Amiant - SOLD
Val Cavrein, Graubünden, Switzerland
Size: 7 x 5.9 x 4.6 cm

This is one of the most bautiful crystals I ever saw from the locality. Amiant bearing clefts were generally rare in the area and no more have been found for many years. This particular specimen shows razor sharp termination and all faces are highly lustrous. The most important feature are these wonderful inclusions in the center of the crystal. The specimen looks really fantastic in each angle! A center piece for every alpine collection!
