Page: < 1 (2) 3 4 >

CL01 - Iron Rose - 4000€
Fibbia, Tessin, Switzerland
Size: 8 x 6.8 x 4.3 cm
 

Highly lustrous hematite aggregate measuring 5.1 cm across perched on adularia and granite matrix! The asymetric growth of the ironrose sets a strong dynamic impact and gives character to the piece. Furthermore, the stepped growth of the shiny faces is particularly beautiful and makes this piece truly special. Tiny bruising is presend along a few edges, but this is truly insignificant. The overall composition is just amazing! Great choice for every lover of alpine minerals!


EH01 - Epidote with Byssolite - SOLD
Knappenwand, Untersulzbachtal, Pinzgau, Salzburg, Austria
Size: 6.8 x 3.7 x 2.7 cm
 

Superb epidote on bysolite floater crystal cluster! The epidotes show magnificent luster, as well as clarity and the typical olive colour when backlight. All crystals in the front are undamaged, just one small crystal in the rear side is not terminated. This is, however, insignificant and not at all visible from the front side. This piece comes from the fecent mining period and is one of the very best floater combination specimens found in recent years!


SB30 - Adularia - SOLD
Tiefengletscher, Furka, Kanton Uri, Switzerland
Size: 8.5 x 6.6 x 4.8 cm
 

Superb adularia twins on floater specimen.


A360 - Amethyst - SOLD
Wurtenkees, Kärnten, Austria
Size: 7.5 x 5.3 x 3.7 cm
 

A bunch of nice sceptre amethysts on quartz matrix. From one of the best amethyst pockets ever found in Carinthia. This is indeed a great sample from this important find, any only very few have ever come to the market. Great condition and shape!


KN09 - Quartz - SOLD
Brand, Felbertal, Pinzgau, Salzburg, Austria
Size: 23 x 11 x 10 cm
 

Outstanding quartz and calcite crystal cluster from Pinzgau region! Ex Kammerlander collection.


SF19 - Milarite - SOLD
Fieschergletscher, Berner Alpen, Wallis, Switzerland
Size: 2 x 1.6 x 0.9 cm
 

Superb thumbnail of alpine milarite! The main crystal is doubly terminated and free of damage. One of the side crystals is not terminated. I love the composition of the piece and the fact that one half of the milarite has the typical chlorite inclusions, and the other half is free of chlorite. The top section is even gemmy and clear!


SF22 - Smoky Quartz Gwindel - SOLD
Cavradiras, Tujetsch, Graub√ľnden, Switzerland
Size: 6.2 x 5.5 x 5.3 cm
 

Striking smoky quartz gwindel, standing 3.6 cm upright, on regular quartz crystals! The specimen is free of damage. The gwindel is clear from top to bottom and free of any flaws. Lovely specimen in every respect!

KN07 - Quartz - SOLD
Brand, Felbertal, Pinzgau, Salzburg, Austria

Totally clear quartz crystals from Pinzgau! Tourmaline inclusions and calcite negatives of formerly included calcites make this crystal truly special! No damage. Ex Kammerlander collection.


SF14 - Quartz - SOLD
Sommerloch, Grimsel, Berner Oberland, Switzerland
Size: 7.7 x 5.3 x 4.2 cm
 

As so typical of this famous pocket, this quartz specimen shows amazing clarity and luster. Just eye-candy!


SF06 - Gwindel half closed, half open - SOLD
Le Trient glacier, Le Trient Valley, Wallis, Switzerland
Size: 4 x 3.1 x 1.4 cm
 

This is a superb gwindel of probably the rarest of all gwindel styles: half open and half closed. The clarity and luster are indeed amazing, there are no inclusions from top to the very bottom. the right edge shows little bruising, however, this had happened in the pocket and is all slightly recrystalized. Great choice for every gwindel enthusiast!
